Letter to the editor: Not true Democrats

My family — parents, uncles, aunts and cousins — were all members of the Democratic Party. They were members when it was the party of the working class; the people who came to America to worship God, work hard, raise a family and search for the American dream. I and my wife were members of that great party.

But the party of Harry Truman is being invaded by far left liberal socialists who are not true Democrats. They call themselves Democrats because the voters would not accept them as socialist or communists, which so many of them are. They would never have been elected if they called themselves what they really are.

They have radical ideas that will bankrupt America. They are for keeping religion out of schools, abortion and legalization of marijuana, and are against the wall that would protect our borders.

I believe they are motivated by hatred and not love of country, blinded by hate of President Trump and for nothing that is righteous or positive for America. A newly elected radical congresswoman exclaimed her goal was to “impeach the (expletive).” They are screamers who are blinded by greed.

The true Democrats have to revolt against this cancerous invasion and bring their party back to represent the “people” — or “lose” it to socialists.

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.
