Why? The Leadership. The Leadership of today’s Democrat party can be divided into two camps. One, is the corrupt old guard of Tammany Hall or Daly Machine days. That camp has always corrupted the power of office for personal enrichment. They are the ones who came into government with personal net worths of less than a million dollars and then somewhere along the way and despite a government pay check of less than 200 grand per year, manage to amp their personal wealth up into 10’s even 100’s of millions. The most recently open and notorious member of that camp is of course, former Vice President Joe Biden, Democrat Presidential Primary candidate and along with his son, subject of a Ukrainian corruption investigation.
Then there is the new breed, who are flat out, insane. They advocate the murder of children in the womb. Even if one of their intended victims manages to survive the procedure and lies gasping for life on a stainless steel clinic table, they are still willing to see it killed. While busily screeching for a “living wage!’ they are busily importing more uneducated, low-skilled, some criminal, some diseased people who, drive down wages, take entry level jobs, denying low skill Americans the opportunity to get a leg up and who refuse to assimilate into our culture.
Speaking of culture, they browbeat normal Americans into believing they must actively promote child abuse in the form of genital mutilation of minors in order to promote the “transgender” agenda. On more than a few occasions they have used the full force of law to drive real Americans into penury for defending their right NOT to participate in ceremonies promoting deviant and disordered behavior.
The list goes on and on….and it ain’t just the Democrats. There is a special circle in Dante’s Inferno reserved for pusillanimous RINOs such as Mitt Romney, YEB! or like Jeff Flake…John McCain is already keeping a seat warm for him. They are flat out evil. The only reason they give any consideration at all to the folks they purport to represent, is so they are available on a two year and four year cycle to flip the lever “D.”
For our Republic to survive, it needs two healthy parties who each believe in the Constitution and the American culture of individual liberty. Lifetime Democrats need to get rid of these leaders—and right now. They should borrow from Oliver Cromwell
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.
Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.
Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?
Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?
Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.
Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.
I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place. Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God, go!
