Most everyone is familiar with the story of Chicken Little yelling “the sky is falling.” At first blush, it may seem that claiming America is in a battle for her future falls in the same category — but is it? The so-called New Green Deal and “Medicaid for All” both enshrine ideas akin to those found in the old Soviet Union, a nation rightfully called the Red Menace and the Evil Empire. The Left would see the ingenuity that drove us to be the greatest nation in the world gutted. Beyond that, the Progressive Liberals are leading the charge in making a mockery of the system our government is built upon, citizen participation.
A handful of cities around the nation have decided that people who are not citizens of the United States, such as those here on temporary visas or completely illegally, can register for and cast votes on local issues. Whether it’s San Francisco with school board elections or College Park, Maryland with municipal elections, there is a push to give people who are not a part of the citizenry a voice in how the government is run.
- In an effort to curb this disturbing trend, House Republicans attempted to insert wording into the pretentiously named For the People Act of 2019 that would denounce the practice. On March 8, 2019, this was quashed in a near party-line vote 228-197. A clear pronouncement by the Democrats that they intend to protect their position and privilege by any means necessary.
- The Democrats would have the world believe that the political Right is anti-immigrant — translating to a supremacist ideology. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has accused Republicans of trying to suppress the vote of those born in other countries when she said: “And we want them, [sic] when they come here, to be fully part of our system and that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America.”
- This is complete balderdash. Everyone knows the benefits America has garnered over the centuries weaving different cultures together. Although it should be obvious that there is a difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants, that little word “illegal,” Rep. Pelosi and her ilk obfuscate that difference at every turn.
Are the Progressive Liberals against the rule of law? Consider the so-called sanctuary cities which harbor those in America illegally, the legislated refusal to cooperate with ICE in many of those cities and the movement to stop the various levels of government from taking reasonable steps to protect the integrity of the ballot box. After due consideration, make that determination for yourself.
