The Democratic Party Is the Party of Family Values

Democrats are already far head of Republicans in supporting family values. While not perfect, Democrats stand in stark contrast with Republicans under Trump and Mitch McConnell who are moving at warp speed to turn their backs on the whole concept of moral values.

Republicans have knowingly and flagrantly sacrificed God’s 10 Commandments and Jesus’ Golden Rule on the altar of sucking up to Donald Trump. The Commandments clearly forbid bearing false witness and committing adultery. Trump arrogantly and proudly violates both. He is, in fact, a congenital liar, who has made over 7,000 false or misleading statements since becoming president. Republicans roar their approval and call for his re-election.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you?” Quote me a Trump Tweet that meets that standard. Meanwhile, Democrats’ bedrock policies remain support for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare—all of which are explicit expressions of the compassion Jesus calls for.

Democrats go even further and call for Medicare for all. Whatever it’s practical flaws, MFA is a pluperfect example of the Golden Rule. Republicans are eager to kidnap more migrant children and imprison them in concentration camps.

Republicans with their flagrant appeals to racism, misogyny, sexism, and xenophobia are waging a war against our basic moral and democratic values, and against common human decency. Favor family values? Vote Democratic, hands down.
