Letter to the Editor: Two-Party System

Joe Hegarty shares his thoughts on the current status of a political party:

The Democratic Party has almost always been on the wrong side of history as they are now with abortion, denying those little people who live in the first “habitat for humanity” their “life. liberty, and pursuit of happiness.” Our leftist media ably assisted by a woefully inadequate and misguided public education system has succeeded in keeping the truth of this party from the people.

This is the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK, as expressed by Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, “The white men were roused by a mere instinct to self-preservation until at last there had sprung into existence a great Ku Klux Klan, a veritable empire of the South to protect the Southern country.” Wilson again on segregation, “Segregation is not humiliating, but a benefit and distinctly to the advantage of the colored people themselves.” This is the party of Bull Conor and Alabama Democratic segregationist Governor George Wallace.

The Republican Party was formed in 1854 as an abolitionist movement as expressed by a great black American, Frederick Douglass, “I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.” We can all surely echo the words of another great black Republican, Martin Luther King, Jr., who said, “Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.”

The Democratic Party is a party that relishes power and control, which is why slavery and dependency have so much in common. This party does not trust “we the people,” which is why it relies so heavily on the Supreme Court to grant it what “we the people” will not. When “its majority” on the court is threatened, as in Robert Bork (1985), Clarence Thomas (1991), and Brett Kavanaugh (2018), it’s time to play dirty. Today’s Democratic Party employs smear campaigns, deception, and intimidation to try and achieve its questionable goals, as was evident to all during the Kavanaugh hearings. Is this a party worthy of anyone’s support?
