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.

God Bless America.
