THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BECOME THE PARTY OF DEATH.
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
There is only one truth, and it is that God is the light of the world. Anything that takes us to Him, helps us better serve Him, and allows us to do His will here on earth takes us closer to that radiant, most blessed light, one filling us with life, goodness, charity, and love. Anything that leads us away from it takes us to darkness, evil, selfishness, injustice, and ultimately, death.
Sadly, today, the Democratic Party has become the Party of Death. Perhaps it began with its insistence in removing the words, "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, words added by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a Republican, to emphasize not only the nation's resolve to act consistently with the will of God, but also in acknowledgment of the faith of its citizens.
Perhaps it is the result of its ardent defense of the non-existent right to senselessly kill another through abortion. The right to undergo an abortion does not exist, as doing so is such a direct and unabashed opposition to the will of God that whomever undergoes it, just as the one performing it, acts outside of the natural rights afforded by Him.
And when The Little Sisters begged to be absolved of the federally imposed mandate to fund insurance policies that provide contraceptive services due to their sincerely held beliefs, the Democratic Party, embodied by then-President Barack Obama, coldly and darkly turned its back on them, forcing a long, expensive, unnecessary, and unjust path to the Supreme Court of the United States, only to have their very obviously righteous position validated.
Perhaps it is the Democratic Party's willingness to enact social policy that openly infringes on one's abilities to worship God. Here, I am not just thinking of the numerous restrictions that Democratic governors have imposed on Christian worshippers, but also the many disgusting acts Democrat-run authorities have undertaken against countless Jews in New York.
Or maybe, it is the Democrats’ subservience to darkness that occurred when it zealously pursued the removal of prayer from schools, a successful attack from which the nation continues to pay dearly today.
In its firm allegiance to socialism, the Democratic Party recurrently implements policies designed to substitute God with government.
And lest we forget the Democratic Party's proclivity to offer the nation grossly unqualified, intellectually defunct and corrupt candidates to lead it. People like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Elizabeth Warren, Adam Schiff, Kamala Harris, and most especially, Joe Biden, to name a few.
I have always believed in the importance of a two-party system. After all, the fate of my parents and their generation at the hands of a communist dictator who declared himself the hero of the working class in a small Caribbean island is still too close to my consciousness to deny the importance of having a state with at least two parties.
But when one party denies those principles and virtues on which its nation was founded and ignores the proper role of God and His laws in its existence and in our interactions with one another, that party disqualifies itself from contention as a valid arbiter of truth and leadership. Thus, at this moment, in light of the Democratic Party's persistent amorality in governance and its unfettered willingness to choose death, darkness, and immorality over life, light, and the natural laws of God, it disqualifies itself from consideration of leading the one nation that more than any other must act as the beacon for the world to follow.
