No com­mon sense

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

The au­thor of the let­ter “Come to­gether un­der Trump and unite” (Mary­land In­de­pen­dent March 10) states that Pres­i­dent Trump’s im­mi­gra­tion ban is just com­mon sense. That is a qual­ity that seems to be lack­ing in the Democratic Party.

Af­ter the 2008 elec­tion, the Democrats con­trolled the pres­i­dency and Congress. They lost the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives in 2010, the Se­nate in 2014, and the pres­i­dency in 2016. The Democrats also went from 28 state gover­nors in 2009 to 18 in 2017. Even heav­ily Demo­crat-con­trolled Mary­land now has a Repub­li­can gover­nor. If Democrats had com­mon sense, they would have re­al­ized that the vot­ers weren’t buy­ing what they were sell­ing.

Is it com­mon sense for the Democrats to ac­cuse Rus­sia of help­ing Trump get elected? Any­one with half a brain re­al­izes that Putin would rather have a Demo­crat pres­i­dent who would con­tinue Pres­i­dent Obama’s pol­icy of weak­en­ing the U.S. and its mil­i­tary, in­stead of Trump who in­tends to make Amer­ica great again and build up our mil­i­tary.

Is it com­mon sense for the Democrats to ac­cuse Trump of racism and hat­ing women? He is pro-life, and to pro-lif­ers all lives mat­ter. Democrats sup­port abor­tions of in­no­cent ba­bies, in­clud­ing baby girls who would grow up to be women.

Since most Repub­li­cans are pro-life and most Democrats are pro-abor­tion, most abor­tions are prob­a­bly per­formed on Democratic women. If Democrats had com­mon sense, they would re­al­ize that they are abort­ing fu­ture Demo­crat vot­ers, who could help them win elec­tions.

Is it com­mon sense to sup­port anti-Trump de­mon­stra­tions that re­sult in vi­o­lence, vul­gar­ity, flag-burn­ing, block­ing roads, ri­ot­ing, loot­ing, etc.? Don’t the Democrats re­al­ize that this alien­ates the people di­rectly af­fected and dis­cour­ages them from vot­ing for Democrats?

People who aren’t di­rectly in­volved, but who see the protest on TV or their com­put­ers are also alien­ated, es­pe­cially those people who sup­port the po­lice. God bless the po­lice — they have shown a con­sid­er­able amount of re­straint despite the abuse and dis­re­spect shown to them by the demon­stra­tors.

Is it com­mon sense for Democrats to sup­port the trans­gen­der “Bath­room Bill” to please less than 1 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion and alien­ate the other 99 per­cent?

These are some ex­am­ples of the Democrats lack of com­mon sense. Per­haps you can add to the list. Robert Boudreaux, Wal­dorf
