Political irony

To the editor, The irony of the politicians and political pundits will never cease to amaze me. Desperate people do stupid things.

Joe Biden recently stated “The MAGA agenda represents an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our Republic. It doesn’t respect our Constitution. It doesn’t believe in the rule of law. And it doesn’t recognize the will of the people.”

First of all, how is it constitutional to mandate that Americans take an experimental vaccine that did not undergo rigorous testing trials, and those refusing the vaccine risk losing their jobs? Was it constitutional to demand that churches limit the number of people that could congregate during the pandemic? It has since been determined by the courts that both of these are unconstitutional.

Many of our cities have endured the scourge of riots and looting by ANTIFA and other lawless groups, while the police and national guard were ordered to stand down. Additionally, student debt will be forgiven by executive order and transferred to the taxpayers. Neither of these seem to be following the rule of law.

It appears as if the will of the people is telling the Cheney’s and the Romney’s of the Republican Party that they are not representing the people anymore. The Republican Party is being taken over by MAGA “extremists” by popular vote in the primaries. The Democrats are threatened by this and are getting desperate.

Joe Biden told us before the 2020 election “If I am elected president, I will always choose to unite rather than divide.” However, labeling a large group of Americans as “extremist” is not uniting the people.

The choice is clearer than ever right now. Do we save our republic by voting for people that truly want to make our nation great, or do we vote for people that have twisted the laws and constitution to fit their agenda?
