The Democratic Party that has produced such great leaders as Presidents Wilson, Roosevelt, and Kennedy has fallen to new lows. The corruption started with President Johnson, and has continued with morally weak leaders like Carter and Clinton. Throughout most of the Party are spiritually insane doctrines such as the right to kill through abortion, the approval of homosexual lifestyles, and "the end justifies the means" mentality. While it is true that Republicans are also lacking in virtue, they come nowhere near the degree of arrogance, hypocrisy, vengeance, and self-righteousness that exists in the Democratic Party, where true wisdom is practically non-existent.
Today's Democrats continue to "use" the media, the elderly, union workers, and minority groups to further their political ambitions. Their tactics include slander, lies and half-truths. Although the American public has rejected their permissive opinions, Democrats continue to act like they are the majority party, refusing to address how, or why their moral standards
sicken most Americans, and others throughout the world.
Democrats foolishly refuse to compare the millions killed through abortion to the deaths in the Iraq war that brought freedom to millions, or the death penalty that involves a trial by jury. Lacking a vision for the future and a sense of justice, Democrats do not see that a far smaller number have died in Iraq, and through the death penalty. Democrats often speak of "freedom," but do not fight to defend the freedom of choice for human beings who are being considered for abortion. They remain indifferent to the fact that no legal defense or jury trial is allotted the innocents killed through abortion.
Even Pope Benedict XVI acknowledged that Catholics may disagree with the Pope on the reasons for going to war and the death penalty, but not on abortion or euthanasia because they are not on the same moral level:
"Not all moral issues have the same moral weight as abortion and euthanasia. . . . There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia."
(Memo to U.S. Bishops, June 2004).
Many Democrats are very judgmental about the actions of President Bush because they fail to take a close look at the lies and deceitful actions of those in their own Party. For example:
In the Presidential debate of Oct. 22, 1976 between President Ford and Jimmy Carter, Carter stated that he did not favor a constitutional amendment to outlaw abortion, and he would only work within the confines of the Supreme Court ruling to minimize the NEED for abortions. That is like saying, "I'm against slavery, but I will not work to change an unjust law, lets just work to reduce the NUMBER of slaves." Republicans support a Human Life Amendment to our Constitution - Democrats do not. Abortion would already be outlawed in the USA if it were not for the Democratic Party.
From a speech by President Johnson, Oct. 21, 1964, at Akron University, Ohio: "We are not about to send American boys 9 or 10,000 miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves." In 1968, Johnson's last full year as President, there were over 500,000 American soldiers in Vietnam. During Johnson's Presidency, over 30,000 American soldiers died in the Vietnam War. In addition, by the end of 1968, millions of South Vietnamese civilians were left homeless, and over 180,000 North
Vietnamese civilians had been killed.
January 26, 1998: In the presence of First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Vice President Al Gore in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, President Clinton stated: "But I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I'm going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time -- never. These allegations are false." We know that Clinton not only lied with this statement, but a number of times before he admitted his guilt. The evidence of Clinton's lack of wisdom is also shown in his pro-abortion beliefs, and his approval of homosexual lifestyles.
In addition, for 1992's Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 storm, federal help for Florida did not arrive until the 4th day after the hurricane. Clinton never assumed responsibility for this late action by his administration.

Hurricane Andrew happened in Florida during 1992, but the President was Bush I, not Clinton. Clinton was elected in 1992 but did not assume office until January of 1993.
The Republicans have controlled the House of Representatives for eleven years and the Senate, also, for two. The Republicans have refused to hold hearings or a committee vote on the Human Life Amendment.
