The Biden administration has now been in office well over a two hundred days. Let's check the political score card: we have massive illegal immigration, a massive increase in violent crime, a massive increase in the national debt and a sharp rise in inflation. On the plus side (the Democratic view) more trans-sexuals are serving in the military and having their sexual reassignment surgery paid for by the American tax payer, Critical Race theory is moving forward, and more BLM and Pride flags are being offically posted at U.S. embassies and consulates. Also I shouldn't leave out the Democratic Party's major economic achievement: we now have more people being paid not to work than at any other time in American history.
The Democrats must also recieve credit for perfecting the art of Orwellian "New Speak", the age old "Shell Game" (Hitler was an expert at this strategy). They accuse others of what they are guilty of. Who of us can not remember what political party sought the radical transformation of our system of voting? Who is it who still calls for: wide-scale voting by mail, drop boxes, vote harvesting, allowing felons to vote, and doing away with voter I.D. laws? When conservatives push back to resist this naked attempt at political corruption they are met with the libels of "Jim Crow" and seeking to destroy democracy.
Who remembers what political party has called for doing away with the "Electoral College", changing the number of justices on the Supreme Court, and giving one mostly African-American city two new senators to represent it (no other city in America has this) ? Finally I ask what political party has recently advanced a bill to in effect nullify the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution? For those who don't remember the Tenth Amendment established the legitimate right of states to determine their own procedures for voting. To do away with the Tenth Amendment is to do away with Federalism. The fuming, fussing, hand- wringing of the Democratic Party over Republican/conservative attempts to protect the sanctity of the democratic process is an act of un-paralleled hypocrisy. I wrote in an earlier essay published before the last Georgia senate races that if the Democrats won we would see a run-away train of Left-wing policy. I regret being right or as Barry McGuire sang in 1965: "... tell me over and over and over and over again my friend you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction." The community in favor of "Cancel Culture" are now trying to cancel the U.S. Constitution.
