Letters to the Editor: Democrats’ core values

Democrats’ core values

My family have been liberal Democrats for generations. But last week, I held my nose and voted a straight Republican ticket.

Why? Because until Democrats suffer a crushing defeat, they won’t return to their core values. They needed a wake-up call. I hope I never need to do it again. Democrats say they care about jobs, wages and workers. But they’ve given us immigration policies that swamped our labor markets, driving down wages and forcing a nasty competition for jobs, especially among the young and minorities. They’re shameless.

Democrats say they care about global warming. But this obsession with mass immigration will cause our population to double in this century. How does doubling American consumption help global warming or any of our environmental goals? I’m fed up with their phony compassion.

Until Democrats cut ties with the billionaires funding their open-border/cheap-labor globalist agenda, stop pandering to ethnic voting blocks and stop using immigration to expand their voting base, then I’ll vote for anyone running against them.

I pray for the soul of the Democratic Party. This is not a repackaging problem. Kick out the handlers and pollsters and come back to the values that made me proud to be a Democrat.
