Dem Supervisor Candidate Huntington
Effective immediately, Americans can take a concrete step to save this country: Stop voting Democratic.
From the West Wing to the West Coast, the Democratic Party has deteriorated into a clear and present danger to this republic. It is virtually impossible to identify a realm in which Democrats are wreaking anything but havoc, division and devastation.
Between Feb. 1 and Sept. 30, on Democrats’ watch, Customs and Border Protection encountered 1,438,236 illegal aliens — up 391 percent in one year. Democrats bus and jet these foreign invaders into the interior, many to Democrat-run sanctuary cities, from which even violent criminal convicts are shielded from deportation.
Biden now contemplates spending $1 billion to pay $450,000 in psychological-trauma reparations to each illegal alien separated from his family under Trump’s zero-tolerance policy. That’s four hundred and fifty thousand. Dollars. To illegal aliens. Each.
Year-on-year inflation is 5.4 percent, a 30-year high. Prices are soaring across the board, largely due to Democrats’ spending addiction and its attendant pummeling of the dollar’s value.
Trump turned America into a net oil exporter in December 2018 for the first time since 1943. Biden drop-kicked that accomplishment into the Potomac. On Inauguration Day, he killed the Keystone XL pipeline. He has choked off drilling permits and vilified oil and gas companies. Motorists are just the first to pay for this idiocy, as regular-gas prices climbed under Biden, from $2.37 to $3.40 per gallon — up 43 percent, a seven-year high.
Federal, state and local Democrats last year defunded, demonized and demoralized the police. Consequently, US homicides climbed 30 percent in 2020, the largest one-year spike ever recorded. Democrat-run cities reel beneath the reign of shoplifters, gangbangers and murderers. Bail “reform” lets arrestees swiftly pose for police photos and then return to crime. Biden now wants bail “reform” nationwide, to advance gender equity, no less.
Democrats like New York Mayor Bill de Blasio scrap gifted programs in the name of “equity” since they consider black and Hispanic children too dumb to challenge, tutor and otherwise educate.
Since the civil rights movement, Americans — white, black, brown, red and yellow — seemed to get along or at least tried to. Mellowing racial attitudes culminated in Barack Obama’s election as president.
Since then, Democrats have deployed the 1619 Project to denounce America as a white-supremacist juggernaut. Meanwhile, critical race theory condemns all whites as oppressive bigots and blacks as benighted victims. CRT reinforces racial stereotypes and pounds them into public policy.
Biden’s Justice Department announced that it would use the FBI and the Patriot Act to probe and prosecute pesky parents as “domestic terrorists.” How dare they speak at school board meetings?
Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law ordering toy stores to sell gender-neutral items for gender-fluid children. Really? Has any US store ever been compelled to offer any product? If Safeway suddenly decided to stop selling bacon and eggs, it could do so. When did toy stores lose that freedom?
Against this backdrop of holistic failure, why would anyone vote Democratic? Old habits die hard. But, as the saying goes, doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results defines insanity.
Nevertheless, the time is now: Save America. Stop voting Democratic.
