Letter to the editor: Dems are morally bankrupt

Regarding the letter “Where is my Democratic Party?” (Jan.27, TribLIVE): I think the Democratic Party started its decline under President Carter, who was a nice guy but lacked the experience to be president.

President Reagan put us back on track, but that only lasted until Bill Clinton was elected. Clinton was impeached by the House for lying about his sexual misdeeds with Monica Lewinsky, but was acquitted by the Senate and remained in office. Clinton gave us the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that allowed homosexuals to serve in the military.

Under Obama, race relations hit a new low. I believe he degraded the police. He was an advocate for legal abortion, same-sex marriage, transgender restroom use and women in military combat. Neither Clinton nor Obama ever served in the military, but both did much to destroy it.

In 1992, pro-life Pennsylvania Gov. Bob Casey Sr. was not allowed to speak at the Democratic National Convention; he said the party was censoring him because of his pro-life views. New York just passed a law making abortion legal right up to the day of delivery.

At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, the Democrats took a vote to see how many wanted to put the word “God” back into the party platform; the vote was almost even between “yes” and “no.”

Democrats are morally bankrupt. History has proven that no nation can be successful without the help of God. America is no exception.

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.
