Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

And They Call Themselves “Progressives”?

In the last several years radical Democrats have taken up the label of “progressive” to describe themselves, so let’s look at a few “progressive” policies and see if they are an indicator of real progress in our society, or do they indicate a path to the destruction of our nation:

Is it progress when a pediatric doctor offers pregnant women to birth their babies and make the infants comfortable, and then, after the child is born, discuss with the women whether they want to abort the child or not? Isn’t it a little too late to discus an abortion at this point? Shouldn’t the word “murder” be applied to this procedure?

Is it progress when a new and radical Islamic member of the House of Representatives calls for the destruction of Israel, our only real ally in the Middle East?

Is it progress when a member of the House of Representatives proposes a Green New Deal which would outlaw coal and natural gas-generated electricity, outlaw commercial airlines and outlaw personally owned gas-powered automobiles?

Is it progress when a president denies all Americans the constitutional right to buy personally paid-for health insurance and forces these people to buy his more expensive and less comprehensive national (and unconstitutional) plan, that does not allow the insured to keep his doctor, and does not allow the insured to keep his plan and does not allow the insured to save the promised $2500 a year, as this particular radical president promised many times?

Is it progress when Democrat-run states and cities declare themselves to be sanctuaries for select illegal aliens residing in their jurisdictions, and deny ICE the ability to remove those persons who are known criminals?

Is it progress when wave-after-wave of immigrant caravans arrive at the United States border, attack border guards, and insist on being admitted to our nation without any vetting at all?

Is it progress when illegal aliens, traveling north through Mexico to the U.S. border, withhold health care from their sick children as they assemble to march to America, illegally cross our southern border, present their sick children to an American doctor, where the child dies while care is finally being given to him in America, long after care should have been given by the irresponsible parent, and then blame the United States, in the person of President Trump, for the death of the abused, and now deceased, child?

Is it progress when American citizens are being raped and murdered by the thousands by illegal aliens, and the Democrat party not only does nothing to punish these criminals and keep similar persons out of our nation, but actually proposes legislation that will allow greater numbers of illegals to enter immediately, and to allow those who are already here to remain?

Is it progress when a leader of the Democrat party, a person formerly assumed to be interested in keeping Americans safe, defends MS-13 murderers residing in our country illegally, stating that they have a “spark of divinity” and should be left alone to continue to commit crimes here and to not be deported or jailed?

Is it progress when a radical member of the House of Representatives proposes legislation that will provide an income to persons who “don’t want to work”, and will provide free healthcare to all Americans, and provide a free college education as well? And does this sort of proposal make any more sense when it is being proposed at a time when our national debt is catastrophic and rising by the day? These additional national financial burdens are expected to cost additional trillions of dollars which will only cause our national bankruptcy sooner rather than later, than it already will arrive?

Democrat leftists are not “progressives” in their attitudes nor in their policies. They are absolutely “regressive” in their professional lives and we should start calling them by the correct name and not the lying name of progressive, which makes them sound more like sensible, intelligent people, which they definitely are not.
