My July 2 letter, “No ‘Kumbaya' with liberals,” stated there is nothing in today's liberal agenda upon which I could ever compromise and the VND published a response (“Dems, GOP both harming U.S.” July 7) from state Sen. Jim Ferlo (D-38). I guess I should feel honored that a member of the elite ruling class — once our employees and representatives — actually responded to a mere citizen's comments.

But Mr. Ferlo's letter made me realize we totally agree on one fact: The Democratic Party does have a proud history. I was a registered Democrat for many years.

But the Democratic Party has been hijacked by liberals and the liberals-on-steroids called progressives. The terms liberal, progressive and Democrat unfortunately are interchangeable. Today's liberal, progressive, Democratic Party — with its evil anti-God, anti-Constitution, communist/socialist agenda — has become the antithesis of what it once was. The liberals/progressives have transformed the once-proud Democratic Party; now they're transforming our entire, beloved country.

I can't understand why decent, God-fearing, hardworking, family-oriented, patriotic people continue to vote for Democrats. The only remaining resemblance between today's Democratic Party — the one that booed God at its last convention — and the party of old is the name.

And this is in no way an endorsement of the spineless, disappointing and conservative-betraying Republican Party. That's not my point.
