Democrats try to destroy America

Democrats try to destroy America

To the Editor:

Our forefathers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that we have certain inalienable rights, those being the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 

Most of us are probably not aware that over the past 48 years over 63 million future citizens of America have been denied their inalienable right to life. Compare that to the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis during the holocaust of World War II. America’s holocaust exceeds that by ten times.

Let’s look at the events under which that was allowed to occur. During the 60s and 70s the radical left of the Democrat Party had accomplices in the liberal majority of the Supreme Court. They realized that the Court could be persuaded to advance their liberal agenda when they were able, with the help of the ACLU, to have it ignore and nullify our Constitutional rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion by removing prayer from schools.

A decade later, emboldened by their previous success, they convinced the Court to pass a law approving abortion with the passage of Roe v. Wade based on a “right to privacy” which is found nowhere in the Constitution. 

In these two rulings the Court in the first case struck down two of our most sacred rights and in the second case created a right that did not exist. As a result these two rulings America has lost its moral compass.

The “pro-choice” supporters of Roe v. Wade, in an effort to remove themselves from the stigma of unfettered abortions, now claim that it is a matter of women’s health. It is difficult for me to believe that over the past 48 years, 63 million women have suffered life threatening complications that have required them to terminate their pregnancies. Roe v. Wade is not a matter of women’s health, it’s a matter of birth control. Of course the pro-choice contingent rarely considers the choices of adoption or contraception.

With the recent passage of the Texas “Heartbeat” bill the socialist Democrat liberals are outraged that they have finally lost their liberal majority in the Supreme Court and while they have a majority in the House and Senate they want to be able to pack the court with more liberals in order to continue to force their liberal socialist agenda on the American people.

Big tech, the main street media and the liberal courts have been successful in squelching our freedoms of speech and religion and are now focused on our right to bear arms.

In order to accomplish their objective of turning America into their dream of a utopian socialist/communist nation under a tyrannical government, they must first repeal the Second Amendment which was adopted primarily to protect us against a tyrannical government. At that point we will lose our liberty and of course there will be no pursuit of happiness under communism. So much for our unalienable rights. 

That’s the bad news. The good news is that the vast majority of Americans understand that communism is no utopia, in fact it is just the opposite and we will not submit to it.

For a detailed account of the Democrats efforts to destroy the America our forefathers established, read Dark Agenda, The War to Destroy Christian America by David Horowitz.

God Bless America.

  • Unfortunately not enough Republicans fight back, stand together or maybe they were asleep at the wheel never expecting to have our Constitution violated the why it has been in recent years. I feel it's going to take generations to make this Country the amazing place it has been for over 2 and a quarter centuries. The Left has skillfully placed themselves in the media, in higher education (brain washing our children), and the Obama made sure to place them in high positions in our Military. So... in conclusion.. if we don't make an effort to reverse these measures, this whole country will eventually look like the "Blue states".... crime, homelessness. burning down cities with no punishment, harassing Supreme Court Justice (no punishment) etc. But that will only be for the left. The right will be punished for having their own thoughts. You will be labeled a bigot, bias, a hater etc.. it doesn't matter if you're a person of color. Get in line w the left or pay the consequences. The Left have become the part of entitlement, intolerance, and incorrectness!!!! They DON'T CARE! The don't like our Country and want to (as Obama put it) "Fundamentally change America". We are and always have been the BEST country in the world but... let's fight back people!!!

  • Well written article. It is a surprise to
    come across a thoughtfully written
    piece, reflecting concerns that Americans
    have, real concerns that are not being addressed. I truly believe that President
    Trump is responsible for bringing the intentions
    of Washington insiders to the forefront, and
    that is why he incurred their wrath from both
    the left and right. Thank God for hm. The genie
    is out of the bottle. American freedom is real.

  • After the last two years, this should be a well known fact! They most definitely are. Look at all the s*** the Biden administration has done. America has never fallen this low even the great depression wasn’t this bad. Not only is our economy at an all time low, we’re getting stripped of our freedom and natural rights. The Democratic Party has proven themselves to be the exact opposite of what they supposedly stand for time and time again. This is what they really stand for: Racism, communism, tyranny, violence, stupidity, ignorance, and murder. In Washington, they’re limiting penalties for drive by shootings I mean talk about stupidity, this is the very epitome. How are the dems ok with that?

  • I have been following this since the '60s. I knew it was going to come to a head sometime in my lifetime, and feel it is getting to the tipping point now because the Democrats from the 60s and 70s... Berkeley acid dropper types, are not going to see the fruition of all their efforts to turn this country into a communist country.

  • You want to talk about communism being bad but then talk about stripping peoples rights to choice in their abortion. That’s dictatorship at its finest!
    I’m can’t get over how you are crying about not being able to pray in schools. That’s wrong and you are misleading people. If a student wishes to pray, they may. But the school is not allowed to “Force” students to pray. That’s the part that’s a law! What’s a church for again? Muslims walk miles to pray twice a day and you can’t stop by to stay good morning to your pastor before school!
    You’re a threat to America!

  • Only morons think that social programs are the same thing as socialism. Socialism is an economic model in which the means of production are collectively owned i.e. by the government. Every major country a stronger social safety net than the USA, and these countries have capitalistic economies. Unfortunately, the USA is home to alot of morons these days.

  • Your all so clueless! The Oligarchs love it when people in both parties fight over these fringe issues while Republicans and Democrats serve the rich and powerful who have hijacked our democracy through a series of Supreme Court rulings that allow them to now purchase our senators and representatives outright! The Supreme Court is unelected but weilds more power than both houses often! The fascist overlords are laughing all the way to the bank while you fight over who can use what bathroom and other inconsequential issues! They have you all right where they want you!

  • It is time to abolish the entirety of the Democrat party. It no longer holds any value for current policies. It exists purely to take away good faith and freedoms. The democrats are only focused in turning this country into a Chinese owned communist wasteland where we will all be slaves to big tech.


    The attacks on right wing media says it all. Anything that doesn't suit their agenda is slandered as "misinformation" and "fascist." The Democrats don't even realize what they're doing with their current policies.


    For the future of America we need to unite and work together to impeach Biden, convict Harris and evict everyone out of the government that aligns with the left. If this doesn't happen these people will literally start a second Civil war...

  • Thank You!
    I’m very concerned about the lack of response from the left about the million plus invaders pouring over our borders.
    Biden is now incentivize more illegals with the promise of hundred of thousands in free money for all.
    It appears that wholesale lies are the standard fair and many Americans are under so sort of spell and not reacting.
    For the first time in my 77 years I’ve been called a racist not because of my words or actions but because I’m white.
    I’m fearful for our children and grandchildren
    What can I do to turn the tide?

  • Miller forgot to mention all the likenesses between hitler and trump. The second amendment to the constitution giving the right to bear arms written so long ago there were not AK-47s and AK-15s. Miller also does not mention how many people including children are killed everyday by guns. The mass shootings have also been carried out with automatic weapons. You do not need military style weapons to protect your homes or go hunting if you so chose. Furthermore as far as abortion goes you do not mention what role men play. I believe a woman getting pregnant by rape is done by a man.

  • The notion of comparing those lost in the Holocaust, about which the writer apparently, knows very little, to issues resolved one way or another, through our political, judicial and legislative processes, is personally insulting to the memory of everyone lost in the Holocaust and everyone who lost family members or close ones in the Holocaust. This type of rhetoric should have no place in American society. Perhaps we are in need of more public adult education on appropriate boundaries for those who desire to participate in the American political dialogue.

  • Some people like to name call. They like to have a villain they can attack. Such vitriol some people are spewing is ridiculous. Sorry, but people have differing opinions - that is what democracy is all about. Labeling someone a traitor because they have differing opinions is what threatens America. You pick and choose what you want in the bill of rights - you love your guns. But, the first amendment is about free speech and the freedom of religion. You have the right to believe what you want, but too many threaten the lives of those who disagree (that is not how a Christian behaves). I am not the threat to America, but forcing your religious beliefs upon me is the threat. So much behavior that i have seen by those who call themselves Christian is far from the words of Christ.

He is the laughing stock of the entire world and worse, take a look at what will replace him when he is finally declared incompetent. Our country is doomed!
