4 Reasons the Democrats are Constitutional Sell-Outs

During this week's political turmoil, the Democratic Party has shown more than ever that it is unfit to lead.

In a little less than a week, we have been able to see what four more years of Democrat rule would do to America. And while Republicans aren’t doing much of an effort to distinguish themselves, their contempt for what truly makes America great – its rule of law – is still less than their counterparts.

There are four reasons why Democrats are unfit to govern.

1. They do not care about the First Amendment.

College campuses show it almost daily: Liberals do not care about free speech for both sides. It becomes extremely dangerous when their disdain for equal free speech reaches the political sphere and becomes one-sided censorship.

As reported in the past few months, Democratic Attorneys have launched a witch hunt against climate “deniers” in order to enquire about how they fund their “shady” practices. Fortunately, brave people like Alex Epstein stand up for themselves and give very incisive answers like these. And when even a former president from the American Civil Liberty Union speaks against you, there is something really amiss.

2. They do not care about the Second Amendment.

It’s no secret that Democrats are after our guns. After every single "mediatized" shooting, we have politicians parroting the same idea: We need to make America safe by restricting (insert reviled gun du jour). They will use emotions, saying that “those who defend the easy accessibility of automatic reloading weapons should meet these families and explain why that makes sense.”

There is only one problem with this idea: Criminals do not care about laws. No matter how many laws restricting whatever kind of firearm will be enacted, criminals will find a way to acquire them anyway. Did Prohibition stop the consumption of alcohol?

Furthermore, nearly every single shooting that happened in the past 50 years occurred in a gun-free zone. They are as effective as a “no zombie” sign in The Walking Dead. Intelligent people know that, so they spread reasonable pro-firearm messages, either subtlety with rainbow Gasden flags or loudly and flamboyantly with Prada bags.

3. They do not care about the Fifth and the 14th Amendments.

If ever you had any doubts that the Democrats despised the rule of law and due process, then look no further than Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy. During his recent filibuster, he openly said that “due process is what’s killing us right now.”

You read that right: If one is merely suspected of being a terrorist, one must be deprived of constitutional rights. Is this the “change we can believe in” Barack Obama promised in 2008? He has eroded due process much further than George W. Bush had done with the Patriot Act.

So far only Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has objected to depriving people of their rights without due process.

4. Democrats feel entitled to your money.

As if stripping you from your God-given rights wasn’t enough, taking your hard-earned money is also a Democratic goal. From fighting supposed economic inequalities to getting paid family leave to affordable (!!) college, they decide what’s best for you. And of course you have to pay for it.

While Hillary Clinton’s promises sound enticing, they are bound to fail and cost a lot. So much that the Tax Foundation predicts that her presidency would shrink the economy. It shouldn’t come as a surprise because taxes discourage people from working more, investing, innovating, etc. In other words, she would not help recover from the next recession during a time when some say we are headed toward another one — or worse.

But who am I to judge? If destroying America is your goal, then by all means vote Democrat for a coup de grâce and finish off the economy once and for all.
