Joe Biden has crafted a campaign slogan saying that “Trump is the candidate of Park Avenue and he (Joe) is the candidate of Scranton.” First of all Joe hasn’t lived in Scranton since age 10 so claiming he is from Scranton is a stretch. As for describing his party’s economic level, nothing could be further from the truth. The Democratic Party has become the party of pampered movie stars and athletes with their multi-million dollar salaries and extravagant lifestyles. You need only look at the party’s latest competition for the presidential nomination where two (possibly three) billionaires were running for president. Since the two major parties held their conventions donations to the Biden campaign have exceeded donations to the Trump campaign by a factor of ten or more. Former Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg is giving $16 million to black and Latino felons in Florida. State law permits felons to vote if they have completed their sentence and paid all fees and other costs. Bloomberg will pay those fees and costs assuming these minorities will vote for Biden. The Florida Attorney General is seeking possible criminal charges against Bloomberg for vote buying. Traditionally the Republicans were thought to be the party of the wealthy, upper class. The Democratic party, on the other hand, was believed to be the party of the working class. Recent years has seen a complete reversal of those beliefs. Hollywood egoists, Silicon Valley brainiacs, and Ivy League elitists are the face of the Democratic party. These new Democrats have deep pockets and are willing to buy elections, including those of liberal prosecutors who in turn eliminate bail for rioters who are destroying our cities. The Republican party on the other hand is the working class and American farmer party. This movement was accelerated under Donald Trump who understood the average worker better than any politician. Trump emphasized the Republican philosophy of low taxes, minimal government and maximal responsibility for one’s actions. America as we know it was built on personal freedom and responsibility.
Unfortunately the media has been taken over by the socialist wing of the Democratic party and together they’re attempting to destroy traditional American values. Conservative politicians (and of course President Trump) are under continuous assault as well. The Democrats are pushing their big government, socialist agenda. Big government fosters dependency while discouraging self-reliance. Scripture teaches us to work hard and be self sufficient. In Thessalonians 3:10: “if a man will not work he shall not eat.” Although attributed to scripture it is a Chinese proverb that tells us, “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.” The Democrats are pushing a socialist agenda of big government and dependency on that government for our basic needs. Such dependency robs a man of his self-esteem and his ability to provide for himself and his family. This election offers a simple choice: 1) Rich elitist Democrats offering socialism with its empty promises that has never worked before vs 2) Working class Republicans who offer traditional values of low taxes, abundant freedom and personal responsibility. I’ll take door number two!
