Leftist ideas

Leftist ideals

With the important elections coming up, I hope this personal story will help shed some

light on how things are changing in our country.

Much has been reported by the liberal media about how awful the Tea Party is (who knew that

a group of mainly senior citizens that oppose wasteful government spending would

be portrayed as racists and terrorists).

What has not been reported is how far left the Democratic party has swung over the last 50 years or so. This is not the same party

that President John F. Kennedy led.

I found out how far left it has gone when my son told me about his experience at his Christian based college. During one of his classes, the

teacher declared that he is an atheist, socialist and Democrat. Now, this guy can believe what he wants to but, I wasn’t too excited to

be helping pay his salary to teach my son these views and not quite sure why this

teacher felt the need to bring out his personal and political views to

teach his class.

After hearing this story, the question that kept coming back to me was, why would

a very well educated man that doesn’t believe in God, that feels so strongly

about declaring himself a socialist, believe strongly that he is a Democrat?

Makes you think doesn’t it? The only answer I could come up with was that he must feel

that his views are being represented by the current administration. I wish this story

wasn’t true but, unfortunately it is. I know there are a lot of people that don’t share this teacher’s

views but, have unknowingly voted for the same beliefs that this teacher is aligned with.

Please really consider who you are voting for this November and what they stand for.
