While finishing our meal at the St. Anthony Parish Festival, which by the way is always very good, we were solicited by one of the candidates and his wife running for Franklin County Judge. When my husband asked if he was Democrat or Republican, he answered Democrat. We thought as much anyway, since the Democrat Party doesn’t use their symbol anymore.
My husband and I being of Christian faith believe, unlike Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, that life begins at conception. My husband said, so you are a baby murdering Democrat. They said no. My husband said, Hillary is and the man said, “So what!” My husband answered, “So what” that Hillary is murdering innocent babies. The man’s answer, no reply!
Isn’t it sad that the answer to everything under the Democratic Party is, So what! And in Hillary’s words, “What difference does it make?”
So what! Americans died protecting our embassy and lying about it being a video’s fault.
So what! Our health care is in a disastrous state. Oh, by the way, your illegal Obama Care will be going up 60 percent next year. Hope you can afford it! Or should it say, So what!
So what! Men can go into the ladies restroom and school gym locker rooms. So what!
So what! Bill Clinton can fly off to an island with his convicted pedophile friend, So what! To molest and sleep with very young children. Bill was convicted of rape. So what! Do you seem him in jail? No! Don’t believe me, look it up!
So what! The Clintons can commit murders, shooting one’s self in the back of the head is hard to do, and have it called suicides. Michael Hastings, the Iranian Nuclear Scientist mentioned in Hillary’s email scandal is the most recent victim. So what!
My husband then went on to ask if he could tell us about the five freedoms under the First Amendment of the Constitution. He replied, I do not have them memorized. He could not even give us one as an example. My husband said, and you want to be a judge in Franklin County and can’t even give me one freedom for an example? This shows all of us that the Democratic Party and people running for Democratic offices don’t know or even care to know about our Constitutional freedoms under God.
So if you will allow me to, while I still have some freedom of speech left, under our great Constitution, here are our rights under the Amendment I of our Constitution: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or adridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This is positive proof that Democrat, liberal judges have spit on and totally disregarded our God-given Constitutional freedoms. So what! What difference does it make!
