Vote your conscience
To the editor:
The upcoming presidential election is one of the most important ones in America’s history, as are Congressional races. Regardless of your political views, I urge everyone to cast aside names and personalities, likable or not, and focus solely on each party’s ideology, as demonstrated by their platform and the words and actions of the candidates themselves. One party favors the following (or turns a blind eye), the other does not:
–Higher taxes, imposed directly or indirectly.
–Voting without requiring proof of one’s identity.
–Lawlessness/anarchy, defunding the police.
–Abolishment of local zoning laws that protect your property, in order to bring in multi-family housing to your neighborhood (“Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing”).
–Erosion of First Amendment rights, including the freedom of religion, Christianity in particular.
–Removing God from every facet of our lives.
–Eliminating the Second Amendment right of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their loved ones.
–The abolishment of the Electoral College, established by the wisdom of our founding fathers.
–Anti-business regulations, including support for the “Green New Deal” which will increase the cost of living and erode America’s energy independence.
–Socialist/Marxist agenda and complete government control of your lives; Medicare for all; Redistribution of wealth.
–Complete and total disregard for the sanctity of life by supporting abortion, including extreme late-term abortion.
Sanctity of life or the brutal “elimination” of innocent children? A free market and prosperity or socialism and a stagnant economy (e.g., Venezuela)? A secure homeland or open borders? Law and order or anarchy? Personal freedom or government control? The Constitution or judicial tyranny? Please choose wisely and vote your conscience — for you, for your children, for your grandchildren. The very existence of our Republic is at stake.
