Letter to the editor: Democratic Party is antithesis of what it once was

In this Feb. 7, 2019 photo, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., talks with reporters during her weekly news conference, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Republicans have vilified Nancy Pelosi for years as a San Francisco liberal and now seek to portray her as a captive of resurgent left wingers in her Democratic Party. But in her early moves so far as House speaker, Pelosi is displaying her pragmatic streak. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

There must be something very mesmerizing and hypnotic about the letter “D.” It’s the only explanation.

My once upstanding, compassionate Democratic “party of the working class” has become the party of trashing patriotism and promoting socialism, homosexual marriage, multiple gender recognitions and abortions up to the moment of birth.

Good, intelligent, moral and caring people continue to support and vote for the party that has become the evil antithesis of what it once was. It defies logic. So the devotion and loyalty must be to the letter “D.” Nothing else makes sense.

North Korea rocket and nuclear weapon testing stopped; hostages returned without ransom; a booming economy; low unemployment; renegotiation of detrimental trade agreements; and renewed national pride and respect are just a few of President Trump’s many accomplishments.

But people hate him, some because of his admittedly rough language on social media. Mere words seem to take precedence over tangible benefits. Apparently silver-tongued politicians who have a history of trashing our country for their own financial gain are preferred. I’ll take Mr. Potty Mouth.

This is not an endorsement of the spineless, useless Republicans who hide in their offices, away from the fray, sitting on their hands and collecting their huge salaries.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
