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?
