Democrats are the enemy

I have lost all, and I mean all, respect for the Democratic Party. I voted for John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. I admired Harry Truman and respected Franklin Roosevelt although I was too young to vote for them. I always believed in a two-party system and also voted for Reagan, Bush and Nixon. What has happened to the Democratic Party?

I see nothing but extreme leftist socialists, corruption and power seekers who don’t believe in the Constitution, the rule of law or the republic for which it stands. The Democrats will sell out our national interest. They lie to the people, use the courts for political gain and ignore the law in the selfish pursuit of power.

Never again will I vote for a Democrat. I have nothing but extreme contempt for anyone who would call themselves a member of the current Democratic Party. After this farce of an election you can be sure the real campaign will begin to utterly destroy the Democratic Party, as it has become a clear and present danger to the republic. Forty years ago in the Marine Corps, I swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from enemies both foreign and domestic. The Democratic Party has become the enemy within who would destroy the republic. This election will become the political battle cry: “Save the republic.” The enemy is the Democratic Party.
