Dear Mr. President,
You have repeatedly said that ‘our democracy’ is at stake when referencing your policies. Your team of media talking heads have also been singing the same song about democracy being in danger from extremists, being at risk, being under attack.
I would like to ask you a question. What is your definition of democracy?
If your idea of democracy is the loudest voices, powered by the unions and big Pharma, and multilateral corporations being allowed to determine the rules in our nation, I don’t want your democracy.
If your idea of democracy is not allowing people to protest government overreach, I don’t want your democracy.
If your idea of democracy is coopting public schools to teach the radical left’s agenda, I don’t want your democracy.
If your democracy means controlling my life by academics and non-profits and lobbyists and ‘scientists’ who think they know what’s best for me, I don’t want it.
America is a republic, not a democracy. We do not believe in mob rule.
American public policy is supposed to be based on the rule of law and the Constitution, not bureaucrats and regulatory agencies.
Today’s elections are basically a sham when unelected regulatory agencies are allowed to make legally binding regulations that effect people’s businesses and lives.
Americans want the freedom to take risks and open businesses that might lead to profits without unreasonable and cost-prohibitive regulations. Americans want the freedom to teach their children their values, the freedom to control their own bodies and not be forced to accept medical treatments, freedom of speech, freedom of thought, freedom to participate in free markets, and freedom to protect themselves from dangers, including the government.
If your democracy does not include these freedoms, I don’t want it.
Your administration is using propaganda and lies to create the false perception that Conservative voters want to prevent others from having freedom. This is simply not true. We are trying to prevent YOU from taking away freedom from all of us.
Please, stop trying to force your agenda through threats and dramatic proclamations of danger to democracy. Instead, how about letting us know what you believe about democracy so we can decide if we want to vote for it.
