Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
I have noticed as the date for our presidential election gets closer, the Democratic Party moves further to the left on the political issues that will affect the future survival of our country. They are now to the point of embracing radical socialism. Everywhere socialism has been tried as a political system or social system, it has failed and often it was hard to tell the difference between it and communism. In the Washington Times June 19, 2019, the Communist Party USA praises the Democratic Party for its policy shifts.
My vote is not determined by my personal likes or dislikes. Most of the time, you could say my vote is based on voting for "the lesser of two evils" and voting for what is best for our country and all its citizens. The radical Democratic Party policies will cost trillions of dollars, and as a result the middle class taxpayer and retiree will see tax increases. The cost of all the free programs the Democrats want will have to be paid for by someone and that will be you and me. If 10 years ago you told me the Democratic Party would embrace radical socialism, I would have said, "It will never happen," but that time is here and now.
Their choice to go down the road to socialism will destroy our country.
