This is what the Party of Lincoln stands for

In reference to a recent letter to the editor and its incredibly vague and inaccurate points trying to project anti-democratic activity onto the Republican Party, the “Party of Lincoln.” The only one and vague point of “stop the federal and state governments from doing things” to help people, then “shame on the Party of Lincoln.”

The Party of Lincoln works to create jobs and wealth so that taxpayers don’t have to support big government. The Party of Lincoln also:

Doesn’t support or stay silent on censorship, i.e. all of the social medias and many printed pieces; doesn’t support or stay silent on the atrocities of antifa and its destruction of property and lives; doesn’t support or stay silent on the very Marxist (and anti-democratic) BLM movement that is nowhere to be found when innocent babies of color are injured and killed by the activities of criminal violence; doesn’t support or stay silent with anti-Semitic statements from our members of Congress; doesn’t support other nations that float their economy with forced and slave labor; doesn’t support public school indoctrination that tries to make a point why others fail rather than point out all humans are created equal; doesn’t support defunding the police (read up on the violence and death in major cities each weekend to see where that is getting us).

The Party of Lincoln is trying to create jobs, U.S. energy independence, protect our boarders, supporting our law enforcement to protect our cities our homes our schools and our playgrounds. When we look at it, the party of Lincoln is working to preserve and strengthen our democracy.
