Letter to the editor: Democrats, party of death

History is replete with mass murderers — Ramses II, King Herod, Gengis Kahn, Mao Tse Tung, Hitler, Stalin — and now the Democratic Party has joined those ranks, or at least finally admitted to being a member for the past 45 or 50 years.

The legislation recently signed into law in New York, and legislation being considered in other states led by Democrats, is proof that the Democrats are the party of death. After legalizing the murder of the most innocent among us by allowing abortion after 24 weeks of pregnancy under a law euphemistically named the Reproductive Health Act, the Democrats prove they have no moral authority at all (I have not heard one Democrat, in office or of influence, denounce this). If they would do this to the defenseless, they have nothing but disdain for everyone, and they will sooner rather than later come for anyone they decide is defective in any way.

I have never been a one-issue person, but this trickles down to all issues because it goes to the heart of all that is moral. So, anyone who would continue to vote or identify as a Democrat needs to reflect and contemplate on their own morality.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
