Had it with Democratic Party

To the editor:

I find this year’s extreme and depraved change in my once-favored party and its media supporters/sponsors to be beyond disgusting, and frankly I fear what is ahead of us in the United States. I can no longer remain silent due to so-called political correctness. My ire is with Democrat politicians, not necessarily with Democrat voters, though I do not understand their allegiance to the party.

If the cancer of cities that have been run for long periods by increasingly socialist Democrats continues to spread, we are all in for a horrid future. Your children and my nieces and nephews face the tyranny and crime of these cities right where they live.

Let us look at one example that is fresh in the news. Do you know who Officer Derek Chauvin is? Knee on a man’s throat remind you? Chauvin has a history of 18 complaints over the years, many as serious as those presently lodged against him. He was let off multiple times by Democrat prosecutor, now Democrat Senator and failed Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar. Now the push to decrease police numbers? Only the thugs and criminals have requested this.

Now let us look at one I grew up right next door to in South Bend, Ind. Chicago is 90 miles from the house I was raised in. My family played/partied there often. As a teen I skipped school with friends to go there.

Mayor Daley, a Democrat, was considered a crooked politician in many ways and for many reasons, but life was much better there than now. For many, many years, Chicago was fun, relatively clean and safer than today by far. The shootings and murders of one year were less than a few weekends there now. Democrat politicians in that town became increasingly socialist and today just check out the people running the once beautiful city I loved. Look at who they are and what they espouse. My once beloved Democrat Party left me, and I am now afraid of the politicians in the Democrat Party. It is now time to change the party, but the only way to do so is to vote them out for a while.
