Time for a change

| Wednesday, July 20, 2016, 9:00 p.m.

I was always taught to know the difference between right and wrong by letting your conscience be your guide.

But our Democratic Party tells me there is a new “modern” way to live. Some of these new ideas include showing more respect for criminals than for our laws. Racial tensions are at dangerous levels, drug deaths are off the chart and, while police officers are murdered, our president does nothing.

More tax dollars are spent on government assistance and the abortion industry than on our declining manufacturing industries. Without decent paying jobs, there is no incentive to get off welfare and look for work.

How could a reasonable person support this absurd ideology? Moral decay, lawlessness, plus weak leadership equals failure. Our enemies aboard can rest easy because we are headed toward self-destruction.

Generations come and go, but living right, through common sense, never goes out of style. Honest, hardworking Americans have been silent for too long.

If it's not too late, we might take back our country by casting a vote for a healthy dose of Republican conservatism.

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.
