I have seen the uptick in sign placement in Galveston advocating Beto O'Rourke for the senate seat held by Ted Cruz in the upcoming elections. I have no issues with his missteps in his youth, or how he was able to have his transgressions adjudicated. His personal life is of no consequence to me.
It is however disturbing that his projections mirror Leninist socialism and his presentation of support for the common man, and his dreams for the country border on a glazed-over communist manifesto.
Socialism hasn't done anything but bring countries to their knees. He advocates muddying the Constitution — and openly wants to impeach the first president of the United States that has had the guts and rudeness to make this country prosper and embrace nationalism.
I truly fear if we give in to unrealistic and unworkable mantras, we assure the greatness of America will be traded for a socialist, third-world country. Being a Democrat or Republican is not the answer. Being a patriot of the United States of America mirrors the strength of our underpinnings.
