Why are they Democrats? What does to­day’s party stand for?

Do the Democrats run­ning in our lo­cal elec­tion sup­port the rad­i­cal poli­cies of the Demo­cratic Party? What does to­day’s Demo­cratic Party stand for?

We must have con­trolled, merit-based im­mi­gra­tion, but Democrats want open borders, al­low­ing un­doc­u­mented im­mi­grants to pour into our coun­try to strain so­cial wel­fare sys­tems at tax­pay­ers’ ex­pense, and al­low­ing drugs, crime, and vi­o­lent gangs in. Democrats pro­mote sanc­tu­ary cities to pro­tect il­le­gal im­mi­grants and they want to abol­ish ICE, the agency put in place to en­force our im­mi­gra­tion laws and pro­tect Amer­i­can cit­i­zens. Some Dem- ocratic ju­ris­dic­tions now al­low non-cit­i­zens to vote in lo­cal elec­tions. Democrats have op­posed the “travel ban” and ex­treme vet­ting to stop ter­ror­ists from com­ing into our coun­try. Democrats choose po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness over pro­tect­ing Amer­ica.

The Democrats ad­vo­cate so­cial­ism and big gov­ern­ment spend­ing. Keith El­li­son, deputy chair­per­son for the Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee, said that New York so­cial­ist can­di­date for Con­gress Alexan­dria Oca­sio-Cortez is the “fu­ture of the Demo­crat Party.” Democrats are the party of high taxes, and they want to roll back the Trump tax cuts. And for Democrats, de­fense spend­ing is not a pri­or­ity when we must have peace through strength.

The Democrats want ac­tivist judges who leg­is­late from the bench rather than ap­ply the Con­sti­tu­tion as writ­ten. Democrats at­tack the Sec­ond Amend­ment. Abol­ish the Sec­ond Amend­ment and only crim­i­nals and ter­ror­ists would have guns. The Demo­cratic Party sup­ports un­lim­ited abor­tions for any rea­son at any stage of preg­nancy.

If the Democrats run­ning in our lo­cal elec­tion don’t sup­port these rad­i­cal poli­cies, why are they Democrats?
