The Issue: Democratic losses in local elections in Virginia, New Jersey and elsewhere last Tuesday.
Repeating “orange man bad” mantras and playing the race card doesn’t appear to be a good strategy for the left (“He’s awake now!” Nov. 4).
People are starting to notice higher prices for fuel and essential items, the continuing crisis at our southern border and the attempts to pass bills that will cause long-term increases in taxes and inflation.
Recent state elections are showing a red wave of parents who don’t want children to be taught a racist curriculum, and voters who are concerned about the progressive policies that will devastate our economy.
Many voters supported President Biden because he said he was a moderate. Instead, they are seeing more of the same identity politics and a party that has veered too far to the left.
Ormond Beach, Fla.
Using children to push an agenda has brought out the anger and total distrust of Americans, especially parents, and many have stepped up to vote against a progressive Democratic agenda.
May this continue, and all Americans wake up to an administration that rewards thugs, places law-breakers before citizens and is now trying to screw around with our children.
Democrats have poked the bear. Now let’s see the next great generation step up and take back our country.
The brave and tenacious stance by the parents who rejected the teaching of critical race theory should be applauded.
If the Democratic Party is adamant about staying the course, this election’s reverberations will presumably continue into 2022 and potentially beyond.
This should serve as an assertive repudiation to Biden and his administration. The vast majority of American people emphatically disapprove of their egregiously misguided objectives.
Millions of Americans are upset with the direction the Democrats are taking our country. From our open southern border to the Afghanistan debacle, voters have had enough.
We do not want our schools to teach divisive indoctrination. Teach true American history — the good and the bad — and stop pitting one group of people against another.
The cost of everything is skyrocketing, and the Democrats want to exacerbate the problem.
There is a reason that a derogatory chant about the president is so popular. Millions of American believe that “Let’s go, Brandon” expresses their frustration of where Biden and the Democrats are taking our country.
The message from the Virginia gubernatorial election is clear: Drop former President Donald Trump.
Discard the bombast, the conspiracies and the lies. By doing so, the GOP’s Glenn Youngkin was able to bring back into the fold suburban voters who were turned off by Trump and the chaos that defined his failed presidency.
The formula for Republicans to win is to abandon Trumpism. Doing so would be not only politically wise, but it would also remove the most acute threat to American democracy in the post-war era.
The reasons for the Democrats’ catastrophic failure at the voting booth on Tuesday is staring all of us in the face.
Their massive spending on their non-essential pet projects is accelerating inflation, and Biden’s irrational ban on fracking on federal lands along with his stoppage of oil pipelines is drastically raising the prices of gasoline, putting even more pressure on people’s budgets.
Democrats defunding and scapegoating of the police along with no-bail laws has allowed crime to skyrocket, and the cherry on the pie is their racist propaganda being force-fed to our young in the form of CRT.
