On April 25, Joe Biden declared his candidacy for the President of the United States. In his opening salvo, he declared that we are in a great battle for the soul of America. I could not agree more. I am sure that I have a very different view as to which side conflicts with the accumulated values of Western Civilization.
The Ten Commandments or Decalogue are in direct conflict with statements made by the 20 Democrats running for President.
“Do not bear false witness.”
In his announcement, Biden charged President Trump with saying there were good people among the racist white supremacists at the daytime violence in Charlottesville. The president castigated those vile people. He said there were good people at the peaceful statue protests the night before. Look up the transcripts. Most of the press and many Democrat talking heads keep repeating this lie. The number of times they have repeated the lies about Trump being a traitor and colluding with the Russians is in the thousand by now. Despite two years of investigation, Mueller found no evidence that this assertion is true. They still have not stopped the accusations. Those who have been claiming that the president is innocent have been reviled and called liars by Trump’s accusers. Leftists should fear for their souls. He charged Trump with causing division, when in fact it is the misrepresentation of his words and actions by Democrat talking heads that is the real source of division. The Democrat talking heads remain committed to constantly dividing us by race, class and gender. Creating division is the province of the Democrat Party and Socialism. While professing support for the middle class, they put in regulations and taxes on business that are so onerous that only the wealthy can comply, leaving the poor and middle class unable to lift themselves up. Or is that the idea?
“Do not Covet, Do not Envy.”
Encouraging the masses to resent the successful is at the heart of Democrat policy. Inspiring the people to aspire is not part of the formula. We have constantly heard that the rich do not pay their fair share and therefore the majority must take more of their wealth for the sake of social justice. Currently, the upper 20 percent of wage earners pay 84 percent to 91 percent of all income taxes collected. Despite their significant contributions, Democrats want even more in the name of the people. That is the tyranny of the majority. It’s Democratic Socialism at its worst.
“Do not Steal.”
Once they put value on envy and coveting, then they justify taking more of our personal treasure. Senator Elizabeth Warren has called for 2 cents on the dollar confiscation of the assets of high wealth citizens. Not just tax their income. I have lost count on how many times I have heard a leftist say, “They do not need that money.” Notice that Democrat Socialist like Bernie Sanders give very little to charity or are willing to pay more of their fair share to government. Rationalizing theft from the minority is at the very core of their political philosophy.
“Honor your Father and Mother.”
The shameless 20 are against returning control of K-12 education from the leftists, to those who care about our children the most, their parents. They do not honor the fathers and mothers of America’s children.
“Do not Murder.”
What else can you call late term abortions on the viable unborn? Be honest.
These have been but a few examples of leftist Democrat policies representing the dark side while professing social justice.
The people now proclaim, “Malum est malum quod facit.”
