In today’s political climate, many will pontificate about “coming together” and “reaching across the aisle” when it comes to enacting policy.
The above are nice cliches for media pundits, activists and politicians. The reality is citizens have to live with the consequences of bad policy and usually never get rid of them. Government policy is a serious matter because it affects culture.
First world culture within a town or city can take decades to build up. It can take less than a decade to destroy through multi cultural policies by progressives. In discussions with people who have asked my opinion on political issues I’ve always warned them if they live in a traditional or conservative town/city, “Save It”! They look at me confused and ask why. My response is because once progressives destroy one town or city, they move on. They too like the suburbs and quaint countryside towns outside of whatever city they moved on from.
Still, many will not listen to my warnings so I give fact based examples . The latest example comes out of Denver, Colorado. The city just made defecating in public less of an offense to protect illegal immigrants:
Denver City Council had an unanimous vote Monday night to decriminalize the offense of people committing certain low-level crimes like lying in a public right-of-way, urinating in public and panhandling.
City leaders and immigrant rights advocates argued the changes will protect Denver’s immigrant community from facing unintended consequences. Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D) and some of the city officials explained that the new ordinances are designed to protect immigrants, legal and illegal, from “unintended consequences.”
These consequences were fines and longer jail terms, as has been customary in most places for violating the behavioral norms of civilized American society.
Mark Silverstein, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, explains the real reason behind the changes: “Many times it becomes a deportable offense if you’ve been convicted of even a minor ordinance violation that’s punishable by a year in jail.”
