Democrats continue to look for countless ways to place their agendas over our freedoms and liberties. Here are just five examples of their attacks on liberty:
1) Plastic Bag Ban
In California, Governor Jerry Brown signed the nation’s first ban on single-use plastic bags in California. Most likely, this is a step to take on ‘climate change’ since plastic is always advocated as a harm to the environment. It is hard to believe this act helps the environment. This is a stepping stone to continue pushing their climate change agenda, so don’t ever think this is the end, but it is just the beginning of their endless attempts to ban more items in the future, all in the name of protecting the environment. Never forget that the very people like Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio that continue to lecture about the ‘dangers’ of private jets, limos, and large mansions are the biggest hypocrites. If they really believed there was man-made climate change, they would be serious about it and not just talk the talk.
2) Attacking 1st Amendment
Not too long ago at a Family Research Council event, Ted Cruz blasted 41 Democrats who voted to repeal portions of the 1st amendment. They wanted to further regulate political speech, unless of course, it is their allies, like the New York Times, MSNBC, Media Matters, and other left-wing organizations. This is no isolated incident. Obama and his supporters of Obamacare continue their assault on religious liberties by mandating them to cover contraceptives and abortions, even if it goes against their conscience.
3) Gun Control
Although there are some Republicans, an overwhelming majority of gun control proponents are Democrats. We’re not saying to eliminate every single gun control regulation, but it is absurd for them to demand more gun control when they already have a hard time enacting current gun control laws in the book. The push for federal ‘assault rifle’ bans and national background checks do not stop crime from happening, and gun control laws that Democrats are pushing tend to go after the law-abiding citizen instead of the criminals.
Remember Diane Feinstein’s ‘Assault Rifle’ Ban she pushed in 2013? It listed more than 150 weapons, including handguns, shotguns, and rifles of all sorts. So don’t let the title of any bill deceive you. This is clearly an attack on the 2nd Amendment and law-abiding gun owners.
4) Free Market Capitalism
Democrats hate when their opponents are successful, which is why they attack Mitt Romney, the Koch Brothers, and Illinois gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner for being wealthy. In their campaigns, the left attacks conservatives for having a lot of money, even though most of those conservatives give more to charity than liberals themselves. The Democrats also call for higher taxes and more regulations on businesses, and then they complain when they are outsourced to other countries. Perhaps it is their hostile attack towards businesses and limited government as to why these businesses and jobs leave this country.
5) Attack On The Unborn
Democrats that brag about being ‘pro-choice’ give no choice to the unborn child who gets slaughtered from an abortion. They say they want to give the woman freedom and liberty regarding her body, but where is the freedom and liberty for the baby? Over 50 million babies have been aborted since Roe V Wade, and we’re called anti-women, bigots, or anti-choice when we dare speak out against this absolute brutality. It is no question that abortion is today’s biggest human rights violation, but I pray to God and have so much hope that it isn’t just if, but it will be WHEN we will end abortion and become a pro-life nation once again.
