As a woman of faith, I’m never surprised over battles between good and evil. These battles have never been more apparent than what’s playing out within our government. I watched as the Democratic Party in New York and Virginia gave a standing ovation to legislation allowing the killing of babies after they are born. Yet, as a Republican I’m told by news and social media it’s my party’s agenda that has a moral problem.

As a Hispanic woman, I’m appalled as Democrats push for open borders that invite lawlessness by ignoring illegals who rape, kill and traffic people and drugs.

As a minority and woman, it’s ironic I risk being denied service at a restaurant, beaten in the street, and called a “Nazi” for wearing a MAGA hat. Democrats in Congress spew anti-Jewish hate speech from the floor of Congress. Democrats’ politics of progressive socialism does not limit its contempt to just the Jewish people. It works endlessly to justify their harassment of our duly elected president. As these progressive inclusive Democrat “brown shirts” emerge, anti-Semitism and beatings of people wearing apparel supporting our president is becoming commonplace.

Socialists in the Democratic Party openly admit they are hell-bent on turning this country into another failed socialist state where there’s no food, no electricity and no future for our children. We’ve got a Democratic Party that purposely mis-educated two generations of children for the sake of indoctrinating their failed corrupting political, immoral and socialist agenda that would allow grown men in little girl’s bathrooms, and regularly strips free speech from conservative and Christian university students.

My faith tells me “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world . . .” (Ephesians 6:10a). We must “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ” (Colossians 2:8).

For our children’s sake, “We the People” must pray, think for ourselves and stand on our founding principles. Do we really want babies born and then killed with government’s sanctioning? Do we want an invasion at our border without the rule of law applied or brown shirt anti-Semitism and progressive/socialism promoting the destruction of American society?
