Letter: With no good choice, voters pick Democrats

“Yellow Dog” Democrats and the liberal media have elected a Democratic Congress. A “Yellow Dog” Democrat is a person who would vote for a yellow dog before voting for a Republican. The reason the Democrats won is because Americans are disgusted with both Democrats and Republicans. They are fed up with the two-party system that gives voters no good choice, so they did not vote. The two parties are self-serving and corrupt; they have distorted the U.S. Constitution and democracy. It is time for a new political party, one that will benefit all Americans.

There are more than 177 million U.S. citizens registered to vote. Less than one third of them voted last November. All the figures are not in yet, but it appears about 30 million Democrats decided who controls Congress. That is only about one-tenth of the U.S. population of more than 300 million people.

A Congress controlled by Democrats enacted a law that allows employers to terminate their employees’ pensions. Employees are suffering today because of that law. Because of Democrats, no employee’s pension is safe.

A Congress controlled by Democrats enacted trade laws that sent millions of U.S. jobs to foreign countries, costing millions of U.S. workers their livelihoods and devastating their families. These trade laws caused the price of gas and other fuels and products to skyrocket.

A Congress controlled by Democrats enacted the Telecommunications Act, a massive $70 billion giveaway of the public’s airwaves to wealthy broadcast companies.

How many more lives will Democrats devastate during the next two years?
