Are you really a Democrat?

Here’s what today’s Democratic Party embraces: huge government, high taxes, personal irresponsibility, free health care, free birth control, free food, free housing, free cell phones, gun control, class warfare, gay marriage, welfare for all, international oversight of this country, nanny state cradle-to-grave administrative bureaucracy, demonizing free enterprise and governance via corruption. Division, not unity.

These are not the values which drew your parents and grandparents to become members of the Democratic Party, a family tradition that you carry on out of habit and loyalty.

But the party has become a complete perversion of the American way of life, of its founding as a nation committed to Christian principles and the belief that hard work creates opportunity.

Is it time to re-evaluate your party affiliation based on the change in your party? To stand up and demand it once again embrace our constitution?
