CRY ME A RIVER: It’s Hard to be a Democrat These Days

The Democrat party made some horrible choices. They made it hard to be a Democrat. They made it hard to be an independent voter who supports Democrat candidates. It doesn’t have to be that way.

The Democrat party said it wants low cost healthcare for everyone. My god, but has that ever turned out to be expensive. The needless screening and overhead written into Obamacare drove up healthcare costs. The huge insurance companies and huge healthcare providers loved it. I feel sorry for you if you actually have a job and have buy insurance for you and your family.

Fewer and fewer of us have a job. The Democrat platform said it wants equal and fair pay. What the party means is that we have to join a union in order to have a job. The union gives its political payoffs back to the Democrat politicians. Now we pay union dues, AND the politicians own our jobs. Ask the coal miners of West Virginia and Ohio how this worked out for them. Ask the unemployed people in California, where factory after factory has closed and headed east.

The Democrat platform said the party believes in freedom of choice. That means it spends billions of dollars selling seven dollar a month birth control and thousand dollar abortions. It also means the party advocates paying single mothers to have more children. In return, we’re asked to surrender all our other choices to big government. I don’t want to settle for throw-away sex because real love is too precious.

The Democrat party said it wants drug reform. With the Obama economy and a third of us out of work, I guess getting stoned is the only thing the unemployed have to look forward to. I worry about the druggies. The more we learn about “harmless” drugs, the less harmless they seem to be. The Peoples Republic of Berkeley California wants to give free weed to the poor. That brings up another interesting question. Do California and Colorado marijuana dispensaries accept EBT cards? I can understand decriminalizing drugs, but we shouldn’t trade joints for votes.

Sure, there is more. We didn’t talk about the environment. We didn’t mention education, racism or immigration. I can go on, but so can you. You know the problems as well as I do. I don’t think the Democrat party has any real answers to our problems.

The Democrat party doesn’t have to be this way. The leaders of the party made choices. At one time we supported them. Now, we don’t like where those choices lead. The Democrat party has to change direction and follow the American people…or not. Elections have consequences…even for political parties.

Vote this Tuesday.
