The Mid-term Choice is Easy: America or Anti-America?
The choice on November 6th could not be more stark.

The choice on November 6th could not be more stark. For the first time in my many years of voting the lines that delineate the two sides are so clear that there is really no in-between. It simply boils down to choosing which group you want to run our country.
On the right are those who love the country America, and despite some flaws and issues that we as a people had to work out along the way, believe that America has been and remains the greatest country on earth.
On the left are those who think America is an evil, racist country, guilty of colonialism, slavery, racism, oppression and in the words of NY Democrat Andrew Cuomo is not only "not that great" but “never was." According to the new Democrat mantra, the evils of our permanently flawed country can only be cured by ruthless application of a modern witches brew of National Socialism (see National Socialist German Workers Party for a good example of how that worked) and Stalinist/Mao style Communism with a dash of Venezuelan poverty and misery. Yeah, those worked out well too.
This then begs the obvious question: Who in their right mind would ever willingly support these obviously failed and repressive systems? Are Democrat politicians so blind and naive that they can’t see how these evil systems destroyed lives and freedom for the peoples who suffered under them?
No - they are not, but they think their voters are.
The Democrat and leftist elites think, and they may be right, that loss of freedom for the ‘masses’ gives them more wealth and power.
When I was eligible to cast my first vote back in 1968 I honestly had a hard time delineating between the platform and policies of the Democrat and Republican parties and for years voted for both. I have no such problems now.
It has come down to the sad but necessary action of choosing which side of the two opposing camps you identify with - those who love America and everything she has and does stand for - and those who do not.
During this election, it is time to face the bleak facts. The Democrat party has become the party of fear, hatred, oppression, and most of all...Anti-Americanism.
They want to dismantle or change the First Amendment to ban and punish all those who disagree with their strident, narrow orthodoxy of intolerant leftism.
They want to abolish the Second Amendment to ensure a docile population that will no longer have the means for defense against possible depredations of a repressive government - a concept that our founders had experienced and foresaw to protect against.
They want to abolish all borders and encourage dependent economic refugees from the third world to swarm the country and through their need for cradle-to-grave support, become a reliable Democrat voting bloc in perpetuity.
They now advocate publicly for mob rule, violence, physical harassment and aggressive confrontation of all those who disagree with them. Who does that sound like - America, or Nazi Germany?
These, by the way, are merely the stated goals of this year's crop of Democrat demagogues. If this is what they do before they’re elected, can you imagine what they’ll do after? The thought is chilling.
Thus the choice this year could not be more definitive or more important, because this time it truly boils down to a choice between good and evil.
If you believe that America for the past two hundred years has stood for freedom and the rights of its citizens against the tyranny that has always gripped so much of the world, then your choice is Republican.
If, on the other hand, you believe that America is and always has been a racist, sexist patriarchy that must be destroyed and replaced with a regime of the elite and a blind obedience to a National Socialist agenda then you fall on the Democrat side. And if it turns out there are more who hate America than love her, God help the world and God help us all.
Let's continue to keep America great - our freedom is worth it.
