The Democrats have once again taken a word that is a treasured symbol for our country–Democracy–and has tried to desecrate it by assigning blame to Republicans for imperiling it. The irony is that they apparently don’t know what a Democracy actually is, having chosen to mis-define it, celebrate Marxism, and use their new definition to incriminate Republicans. I thought I could help them out by clarifying the characteristics of a Democracy, and we can all reflect on who is doing the most damage to our country.
Let’s start with the border—you know, the southern border that is supposed to indicate the line where we begin to protect our national security. Oh wait, that’s right, we have no security in the south . . . due to the neglect of the Biden administration. And then we have the overwhelming abuse of fentanyl, which no one has addressed . . . well, probably because we have no southern border to provide national security, and we don’t want to offend the Chinese. And then we have illegal immigrants bearing down on our borders, even though our borders are closed . . . except that they are not closed. And what about the fact that sex trafficking is taking place due to the dominance of the cartels . . . but of course, those are just rumors . . . as is the news that children may be being kidnapped to harvest their organs.
And we have the Democrats behind these activities, in spite of their trying to blame the Republicans. And the Democrats fear our Democracy is imperiled.
But let’s just move along here . . . with our commitment to climate change, we are severely limiting our access to coal and natural gas, even though we could supply ourselves and most of the world. (Even Elon Musk knows we can’t stop using fossil fuels in one fell swoop.) But of course, we are using both of those fuels to manufacture solar panels. You know, those panels that insurance companies are threatening not to insure because of the weight they put on the roofs of ordinary homes. And we are being told to purchase electric vehicles that require hard-to-acquire elements for their batteries . . . and the fact that the average car buyer can’t afford an electric vehicle. And the fact that you risk being stuck in some god-forsaken place when you run out of power . . . and let’s not forget that we are trying to buy energy products from other countries who, unlike us, have no scruples about producing them.
And speaking of national security, let’s not forget our military, that can’t staff its ranks because it can’t find enough people who are fit enough, smart enough, or interested enough to join this woke enterprise. Maybe those people didn’t grow up with two mothers.
And finally, being told that we must suffer this “transition” time as our country becomes poorer, less free, disrespected by most of the world, and incapable of protecting ourselves.
So tell me again, Democrats, why is our Democracy in peril?Published in
