Letters to the Editor

You just might be a deplorable, if ...

If you are a Democrat ...

... but oppose open borders, free health care for illegals, sanctuary cities, elimination of ICE, socialism, a government-run heath care system for all, free college for all, higher taxes, late-term or post-birth abortions, you just might be a deplorable.

... but want to keep your doctor, your private insurance, your money, a growing economy, low employment figures for all groups, like your guns, or equal justice for all, you just might be a deplorable.

... but believe in the Constitution, the electoral college, term limits, members of Congress should be doing instead of dawdling, or the rule of law, you just might be a deplorable.

... but love America and hate Antifa, you just might be a deplorable.

... but honor our flag instead of burn it, or the existence of the state of Israel, you just might be a deplorable.

... stand for the national anthem and kneel for prayer, you just might be a deplorable.

The conservative movement will welcome you at any time. There is no room left for you in the Democratic Party. Your time and position there has expired and been eliminated. Don’t let the term “progressive” fool you, unless you think going backward is progress.

Keep America great!
