Tulsi Gabbard, former Representative, presidential candidate and 20-year Democrat explains “Why I’m leaving the Democratic Party”.
I love our country. Our God-given rights of freedom, life, and liberty enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights are my
inspiration. I answered the call to duty and took an oath, dedicating my life to supporting and defending those freedoms,
both in uniform and in public office.
I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers
driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism, actively work to
undermine our God-given freedoms enshrined in our Constitution, are hostile to people of faith and spirituality, demonize
the police and protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans, believe in open borders, weaponize the national
security state to go after political opponents, and above all, are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war.
Here are some of the main reasons I’m leaving the Democratic Party, in brief.
The pro-war Democratic Party has led us to the brink of nuclear war. The party is led by warmongers who are firmly in
the grips of the military industrial complex, and don’t know or care about the cost of war, or who pays the price. President
Biden and Democratic Party elite have pushed us to the precipice of nuclear war, risking starting WWIII and destroying the
world as we know it. To protect our loved ones, our children, our world, I’m calling upon the American people to join me in
standing up to these cowardly politicians now.
Today’s Democratic Party rejects the rule of law. The people’s trust in the rule of law is the foundation for democracy. By
weaponizing the security state and Federal law enforcement for their own partisan political ambitions, Democrat leaders
are undermining the rule of law and turning our democracy into a Banana Republic. Across the country, Democrat
politicians call for defunding the police, enacting laws that favor criminal’s rights over those of everyday Americans, and
so-called progressive DA’s let violent criminals out of jail, refusing to charge them. It should come as no surprise that crime
and murder rates are rapidly increasing.
Today’s Democratic Party and the Biden DOJ and Department of Homeland Security has focused their newly formed
Domestic Terror Unit to target parents who are vocally standing in opposition to radical curriculums and explicit sexual
content being taught to young children in our public schools – labeling parents as “terrorists” for showing up at school
board meetings and demanding change.
Today’s Democratic Party does not believe in our constitutionally protected right to free speech. Fostering diversity of
thought and freedom of expression is the foundation of any flourishing democracy. Democratic Party leaders don’t agree.
They are led by fanatical ideologues who pose a threat to our democracy because they don’t believe in freedom — freedom
of speech, freedom of thought, freedom of religion. The Biden Administration even tried launching their own “Ministry of
Truth” to control what information we are allowed to read, hear, and say. How can a political party that is opposed to
freedom be trusted with our democracy? They can’t be.
Today’s Democratic Party does not believe in our constitutionally protected right to freedom of religion. The Constitution
recognizes that our freedom comes from God — not governments. Unfortunately, Democratic Party leaders reject this truth
and are hostile toward people of faith and spirituality, and actively undermine our religious freedom.
Today’s Democratic Party does not believe in our constitutionally protected right to bear arms. Our founders passed the
Second Amendment out of a recognition that every one of us has a right to defend ourselves and our loved ones, and to
serve as a check on a tyrannical government seeking to take away our God-given freedoms.
Today’s Democratic Party stands with giving ‘Big Brother’ more power and control over our lives.
Today’s Democratic Party racializes everything and blatantly foments anti-white racism. The Democratic machine has
betrayed Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of a nation where we are judged based on the content of our character rather than
the color of our skin.
Today’s Democratic Party is undermining families. Families are the bedrock of civilization. Today’s Democratic Party does
not recognize this truth and the importance of the central foundational role that families play in our society and civilization.
They want to strip away the rights of parents to raise their kids.
I believe in a government that is of the people, by the people, and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party
does not. Instead, it stands for a government of, by, and for the powerful elite.
So today, I’m calling on my fellow common sense independent-minded Democrats to join me in leaving the Democratic
