I come from a family of Democrats. More truthfully, generations of Democrats. Generations of people who voted a straight Democrat ticket. In much of West Virginia, at least for the local elections, it still happens that way. It explains why our state is a perennial bottom feeder. Democrats have been in charge of it for all of my life, even during the brief respites of Republican governorships. Our Democrat politicians and their yellow dog followers (maybe we should rename them yellow sheep) continue to support the national Democrat party. Even while the policies of “the party” destroy our state, we hear Senator Joe Manchin and his replacement Governor Earl Ray Tomblin along with Congressional lifer Nick Joe Rahall and Cecil Roberts, the President of the United Mine Workers Union declaring how vigorously they are battling the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) overreaching regulations that are crushing the coal industry. They always leave out that this is the EPA of the Administration and national party they did and still do embrace. But, it is much more than that. I know West Virginians. No matter how yellow the dog, most still value God, family and country and typically in that order. The progressive-communist dominated Democrat party is at odds with all of those.
Maybe our local Democrats thought they would be overlooked in November if they hid out during their party’s convention. They offered up plenty of reasons for not making the short trip down Interstate 77 to Charlotte, but they were hiding – plain and simple. They were hiding, because it is clear these days that the progressive-communists own their party. Rather than acknowledging it and fighting it, they hide from it hoping it will go away. Hoping for change I suppose. Barring a miracle, however, cancer does not just go away. There is no more Democrat party, at least not the one of my ancestors. Not the one of West Virginians.
Local Democrats remain loyal to the party that removed God from their party’s platform. That is in stark contrast to what the typical West Virginian asserts to value. God would have stayed out too, had not someone asked them to explain his absence. Then they voted on it. The party of tolerance actually had to vote on whether God should be included in their platform – their vision for America. Wow. Not only that, but by listening to the voice vote that was taken three times, it was plain that a majority of them did not support the change. Three times they denied God. Then when it was declared that God was back in anyway, many of them booed. This is not the party of generations of West Virginians. This is the party of Godless progressive-communists. Their God is a controlling, freedom destroying government.
Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.” Luke 22:34
“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33
Then they insist that there is a war on women perpetrated by woman hating Republicans. To address that, they trot out Sandra Fluke, a near middle aged “co-ed”, who insists that we, who would prefer not to, supply her condoms and birth control pills or at least give her the money for them. Apparently young women, if you accept the premise of the Fluke case, shamelessly go to college for the sex first.
Then they insist in, freedom of choice they call it, abortion on demand – and that taxpayers subsidize that as well. When the progressive-communists speak of choice, they are endorsing killing babies. For proof, just remember that they want to tell us what to eat, what to drive, what type of light bulbs to put in our houses…. and whether we can openly practice our religion.
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Matthew 18:2-6
It probably holds that if you tossed God out of your party, none of that has any impact on your thinking.
Then along comes Bubba. The party that declares there is a war on women sends out their super-star to sway the nation. This is a man, allegedly a married one, who respects the office of the President by having sex with an intern inside the Oval Office. A man who perjured himself and who stands accused of being a serial predator of women. He is a one man war on women, yet, he is the iconic leader of his party – a soulless party with no conscience and apparently no morals.
They endorse homosexual marriage. Coupled with abortion, the progressive-communists continue their war on children and the family.
The President assured us, while still a candidate, that his goal was to fundamentally transform the United States of America. Now he tells us he needs more time to get the job done. More time to redistribute wealth. More time to trample on the Constitution. More time to render Congress totally irrelevant and impotent. More time to build a Godless third world communist dictatorship. More time.
“On every issue, the choice you face won’t be just between two candidates or two parties. It will be a choice between two different paths for America. A choice between two fundamentally different visions for the future.” – President Obama
How so very true Mr. President. How so very true.
