The Backlash Against Socialism: North Las Vegas Mayor Switches Political Parties
On April 6th, North Las Vegas mayor John Lee announced that he is no longer associated with the Democratic Party and has, instead, switched his affiliation to the Republicans. This move is a direct result of the push for socialism from the Democrats.
The mayor explained on “Fox and Friends,” “In the Democratic Party of Nevada, they had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the socialistic party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party that I can stand with anymore.”
This sentiment expresses what many Americans have experienced over the past few years. My mother was a lifelong Democrat and a union worker for Chrysler for decades. Not even having her job outsourced to China stopped her from shouting, “Vote Democrat!”
In the Trump era everything changed for her. The 2020 election was the first time she ever voted Republican because she realized how destructive the socialist sentiment coming from the most influential Democrats is.
Democrats openly celebrated their socialist ideals during the Trump presidency. Rashida Tlaib expressed favoritism for its rhetoric from the start of her political career, as well as Sandy O, and other “squad members” who entered the House of representatives.
I myself have been an independent voter for 10 years. I never felt fully represented by the right or the left, but I found much more common ground with conservatives because they seemed to be the only ones still interested in upholding the Constitution and ensuring that law and order rule over mob mentality and ruthlessness.
Over the course of the Trump presidency, I felt a change in myself. What residual anger against my country remained from my public school indoctrination was washed away as the America First movement offered hope for everyone who understood the beauty of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It was the first time since I was a child that I felt proud to fly the flag and celebrate the diverse history of the American fight for freedom over tyranny.
