While many people for various reasons do not want to get involved in politics, every justice-minded person must do something to help Democrat candidates get elected. Whether it’s donating to a campaign, writing postcards to voters, going door-to-door campaigning for a candidate, writing letters to newspapers, or putting up yard signs or bumper stickers, we must stop this Republican Party war on democracy and intolerance.

if You want Truth try listening to NewsMax or go online to you will gain perspective on what is really happening in the Republican party as opposed to just believing what you read and watch on the leftwing biased towards Democrats Mainstream news media which is all bought and paid for by 95% Democrat donors. Try to be more fair by hearing all sides to each story they tell you.

I think you mean “tolerance” and not “intolerance”. A war on intolerance would suggest your Republican friends are fighting intolerance … which they are … but I don’t think this is what you intended to say. I’m amused that one can say “justice-minded” people must help Democratic candidates when to many it is pretty obvious we no longer have a fair justice system in this country at all and that our democracy is being assaulted daily by the Briben Administration. Oops!! I just outed myself. The FBI and IRS are knocking on my front door with guns drawn and a search warrant …. Sadly I’m not really exaggerating.

But I think it is great your group is having a little get together for like-minded people. A $35 cover charge should keep the troublemakers and quite a large segment of our local populace from attending.

Democrats need to take a long hard look at their party…as it moves to the far left and well away from center moderates it seems the only thing happening under their rule is wicked inflation, social division, more war and dangerous foreign policy, higher crime, corruption and a much higher cost of living for Democrat run cities due to their environment and energy policies. Hopefully they will address this and demand better from their elected officials asap.
