Decades ago when I turned 21, I registered to vote. I registered as a Democrat because it seemed like the right choice. With increasing age, I developed wisdom and finally learned that both the democratic party and the republican party would both lie and indulge in nefarious activities to obtain votes. After about twenty years as a registered democrat, I changed my registration to republican. So I watched the republican party for a while and finally decided that they were about as worthless as the democratic party. As my hair turned grayer, I finally decided to register as an independent or NPA ( No party affiliation.) Today I have finally learned that it is not the party. It is totally the integrity and the honesty of the individual and his/her courage to stand up and tell the truth.
Also, I have finally acquired the wisdom to understand and comprehend that political parties change and modify their values and positions. I have a number of friends who came from families, just like me, that were taught that the democratic party was the “good guys.” Several of my closest friends have said to me recently: ” I am glad that my father is not alive today to see what the democratic party has become. He was a supporter of the democratic party, but he would not tolerate the democratic party of today ! ”
I have seriously contemplated how both the democratic party and the republican party have changed and modified over the years and the decades of my life. I view the democratic party of today as a party that has seriously traveled down the wrong road in life. The democratic party started the ” Black lives matter ” movement to convince the Black citizens that they should vote democratic. Yet, by studying the democratic party candidates, the theme of the democrat party should be : ” Black votes matter; Black lives mean nothing to us. ”
I watched the mother of Demetrius Griffin, Jr. speak on a TV program recently. Demetrius was a teen who lived in Chicago and he was found dead after being burned alive by a street gang that he refused to join. Police found his remains in a 55-gallon drum left in an alley on West Cortez in Chicago. He was murdered on September 17, 2016, which was about three years ago. This is almost too horrible for me even to think about. Yet, Demetrius was not only the young black American murdered in Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore or other large cities in the U.S. Violent crime in the U.S. is a serious problem. Yet I view very wealth billionaires in the U.S. who live in their mansions on 40 or 50 acres of land that is surrounded by a ten foot wall with private security.
Barack Obama earned his doctorate in political corruption, money laundering, extortion, bribery, and political intimidation from the Mayor Richard Daley Institute of criminal politics in Chicago. When Barack Obama came to Washington he connected to the Clinton Crime family. After eight years in Washington, the Obama-Clinton crime syndicate appointed thousands of unelected bureaucrats that had little or no loyalty to the U.S. Constitution. They were loyal to the Obama-Clinton Crime family and the democrat party. These unelected bureaucrats have indulged in the most vile and illegal criminal conspiracy to damage our legally elected President Donald Trump.
All of the democratic candidates seeking the office of president have indicated that they have much more concern in obtaining full medical benefits for illegal immigrants than in helping honest and law abiding Americans. This is totally insane.
I greatly admire President Trump and I believe that he is the best President that the U.S. has ever had. President Trump, in my view, should use the power of his office to help Americans trapped in big city ghettos that are managed by the corrupt democrat party. We should remember Demetrius Griffin, Jr. and work to lower the violent crime rate that has been encouraged by democratic party corruption and democratic party racism.
