What Happened to the Democratic Party

What happened to the Democratic party of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and John F. Kennedy? They all stood for something and stood up for America. They knew the importance of protecting the United States and did what was necessary to keep us safe. Some things weren't very good ideas historically (the Japanese internment camps), but they only had the security of our way of life in mind.

These days it's all about how to make the Republican president look bad. Much of the Democratic leadership inflame their followers with lies and innuendo. It does not matter if the information is true. They have come to the conclusion that if they say something loud enough and long enough it will be considered the truth and sadly it seems to work.

JB Williams at The Conservative Voice has an opinion on what the Democratic party has become and that is Anti-America. Or if you are Pro-America, you are anti-Democrat.
Today, being pro America - supporting America, its founding principles, its fundamental ideals, its policies and its national interests, most likely means that you are anti-Democrat. No matter how hard the Democratic Party works to drive Bush or Republican approval rating into the toilet, the effort just doesn’t seem to take root with the American people. Even when Democrats are successful in undermining public support for their political opponents in the polls, those polls indicate that their own ratings drop even faster and farther in that effort.
They speak of Bush's terrible poll numbers, but they don't talk about their own. Did you know that the approval rating for Democratic congress was only 33% in November 2005? And that the disapproval rating was 47%? Yes, Bush's approval ratings were abysmal at that time, but he was still slightly higher than Democratic congress at 35%. The disapproval of the Democrats may be directly related to the lack of support for so many issues that the average American feels are important.
The simple fact is, most Americans are not anti-religion or religious speech, not anti-capitalism or free market society, not anti-military or national security, not federal dependents and not interested in relying upon any commune to raise their young or determine their place or worth in society. Today, this also means that they are not Democrats…

Though Democrats bristle at any suggestion that they are in any way anti-American, the fact is, their agenda is at odds with nearly every American principle today and average people able to see that, just can’t get over it, no matter how bad the alternatives might appear.

If you understand and support our mission in Iraq, you are anti-Democrat. If you seek to secure our borders, you are anti-Democrat. If you support hunting and killing terrorists on foreign soil to avoid another 9/11, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe in a free market capitalist economy, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe in limited federal government, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe that a right to life itself is the first personal liberty, you are anti-Democrat. If you have more faith in the US than the UN, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe in national sovereignty and autonomy, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe in free religious expression in the public square, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe in personal property rights, you are anti-Democrat. If you believe our justice system is based upon equal application of existing laws, not an unbridled extension of our legislative branch, you are anti-Democrat.

But if you believe in most or all of these things, you are most importantly pro-America. If you fight to support and defend true American ideals, even just at the polls, you are by definition, a true patriot, one who loves, supports and defends his/her nation and its principles. And you are not a Democrat today…no matter where your voter registration card might be filed.
It seems by almost every comment coming out of the mouths of the Democratic leadership that they want Bush to fail and in turn that they want America to fail. They claim to support the troops and be for "everyman," but their words and actions are showing this to be a false claim.
Today’s Democratic Party platform is based almost exclusively on anti-American ideals and sentiments. What was once the party of the average American has evolved into the party of the average anti-American. Today’s Democrats don’t only hate George Bush - I could live with that… They hate everything America is, has ever been or was ever intended to be, their policy platform says so and that, I can not live with. Neither can most Americans…

In the central federal government they trust, not the people. In communal socialist principles they believe, not the free right to self-determination. They can’t even support the most fundamental personal liberty of all, the right to life, let alone the liberty to pursue one’s own happiness without the constant interference of the federal government.

While our soldiers fight and die for freedom abroad, they attack our soldiers, their missions, their commanders and the military leadership as a whole, here at home. They attack the earned assets of investors who create jobs in search of profits. They attack corporations who employ Americans in the production of their products and services. None of these ideas or negative sentiments are American. Yet they are the foundation of today’s Democratic Party platform.
Luckily the public in general is no longer listening to the Democratic machine or the DNC. They may still classify themselves as Democrats, but they are for so many things that the current Democratic leadership is against. The proof may come at the end of the year when the 2006 mid-term elections take place.
The point is this… no matter what the polls of the liberal propaganda machines say, being pro-America today equals being anti-Democrat. Even Democrats know it, though they can’t afford to admit it. Instead, in their minds, pro-American means mindlessly pro-Bush.

So I look for the trend of removing democrats from office to continue in 2006 and 2008 and until such time that the DNC decides to distance itself from the anti-American policies and sentiments of the secular socialists currently running roughshod over their party.

Fortunately, the average American is not as foolish as the DNC has bet. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that anti-American is as anti-American does. Regardless of their rhetoric, their policies remain anti-America on almost every issue. As long as it does, real Americans will continue to remove them from office with some pleasure. A few liberal Republicans along the way too…
We will have to see what this new year brings. I believe that Iraq will soon learn to stand on their own and our soldiers will come home. The economy will still be on the rise and the interest rates will be reaching a plateau in the near future. And I truly hope that the American people will show that they have more faith in themselves and American values than they do in the Democratic party.
