To the Editor:

What should upset every conservative is the Democratic Party seeks dependency on government through material redistribution, equity verses equality, and social control by government as a means to an end for the Democratic party.

Look at every major democratically controlled urban center heavily populated by the poor. The Democrats have created a scenario of dependency on the welfare state. The Democratic Party has transformed preexisting non-profit institutions reshaping them politically to suit their ideology. In our inner cities what stands out? Exclusion, low-income housing, poor living standards, low education, helplessness, and a feeling of inferiority. When Democrats push non-profit welfare institutions, they promote social dependency. An easy trap for those who believe society owes them.

If you take for example the single parenting, Wokism, or gender identity. The impact based upon the outcry of citizens creating new different institutions supporting these ideologies. As a result, government expands their hold on individuals creating new relationships within the welfare community while controlling the narrative. This control over minority populations is crucial to Democratic politics. It also expands their voting base.  What is perplexing is how naïve these populations are.  In the last four decades non-profits have expanded into health insurance, childcare subsidies, housing, fuel subsidies, rent subsidies, gender equality, etc. specifically designed to alter the balance of power. For the Democratic party, these social institutions allow Democratic control of this demographic. Creation and funding are significant to control by the Democratic party. In turn these organizations are used to link up political action. This plays into the basic premise of socialism as these organizations directly impact structurally the forces generating the political economy based upon the collective.

The welfare state via poverty has become the focal point for class warfare. Furthermore, these organizations promote the domain of material and economic needs to a population that excepts dependency on government. Among other things they distort the crucial aspects of challenging work or fulfilling the American dream, more specifically it works against the economic forces of capitalism and a free market. As we have seen in every major urban center in the U.S. such dependency creates an environment where low-income populations deliberately and collectively determine their own rules governing their cooperation enforcing the premise, I want equity over equality. These institutions believe they are doing good when in essence they are contributing to the social decline of those in poverty dependent on government.  They have become separate political bureaucracies within the welfare state under the umbrella of the Democratic Party whose goal is bigger centralized government.
