AMAC Members Outspoken on The Left’s Priorities

Democratic

AMAC members are familiar with the weekly poll on our website where we ask their take on an issue or item(s) in the news. But it is the comments section where members can really sound off. A good week has 500-700 comments. However, this week we garnered over 1,300 comments, the most since October 29, 2021.

We want our members to make pointed selections from the choices offered, limited to two maximum, and therefore intentionally eschew an “all of the above” selection. That helps AMAC discern priorities and what is most important.

Our ask this week was about the top priorities of The Left.  There was a near three-way tie between growing government to control us, indoctrinating kids as early as elementary school, and open borders to get illegal aliens voting later.  Creating dependency, a Green New Deal industrial policy, and a “post-gender” unisex world were the “also-ran” choices.

The one theme easily spotted in the comments was how The Left is totally absorbed with power and control in all that it does and proposes. Here’s a selection from AMAC members, in their own words:

“I feel like I am seeing the destruction of everything good about America in real time.  The political class seems hell bent on ruining every institution, every aspect of American life.” – Anna

“Read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand; she and Orwell both described the future we are living now.” – Dan M.

“It’s all by design to usher in The New World Order.” – Karen

“It’s disgusting what they’re doing to America, and it’s disgusting how they’re getting away with it day after day.” – Audrey

“When good men do nothing, evil rules.  Time for good men to step up.” – David M.

“Americans better wake up or there will be no freedoms.” – Bonnie

“They don’t believe in American exceptionalism.” – Carolyn

“I don’t understand why the left hates America so much.” – Charlene M.

“The [Democrats] at the wheel and behind the scenes are focused on turning us into a society so dependent and submissive to government.” – Patti

“The left’s main goal?  See Hunger Games.”- John

“Their goal is to keep the situation stirred up to confuse a pubic not able to focus on more than one thing.”– Tom C.

“Create non-self-thing robots and destroy Christianity.” – Kate S.B.

 “They are doing this for a purpose to destroy society.” – David

 “My heart breaks for what the Democratic part has become.  My father was a Democrat who understood an intact traditional family is crucial to the fabric of society.” – L.J.P.

“Any chance of a future for my grandchildren in this country which I love deeply and fought for is growing bleaker by the second right now.” – William L.

“How on God’s earth are we going to continue on this very dark road?” – Maria

“Their priorities are power and control; those [poll] options are the means by which to achieve it.” – Alyson W.

“To fundamentally change America from founding beliefs that will ‘erase’ our history.” – Joe

“We need to have a Convention of States to restore the power back to the states, where it rightfully belongs, as our Constitution was written!” –  Roscoe

“Any country or people who turn away from God get exactly what we are witnessing in America.” – Gary

“Total and complete subjugation of the entire population just as Venezuela went from rich to poor in 3 years, we are on that track.” – ‘Cyncro’

“My question- what is being done to stop this?” – Judith

“The party of slavery continues to promote slavery in any and all form.  They support anything and everything that enslaves a person physically, mentally, and spiritually.” – Rick

Jeff Szymanski works in political communications at AMAC, a senior benefits organization with nearly 2.4 million members.  He previously taught high school economics for 15 years.

While there are only two genders, we all have varying levels of masculinity and femininity. Those are normal individual traits that are part of our potential for a meaningful life. More feminine males tend toward creativity. More masculine females tend toward service.

True diversity is the infinite range of gifts and talents present in and required for society to exist. Sexual proclivities are secondary and must be overcome except where blessed in the male-female marriage covenant. 1 Corinthians 10 helps the troubled.

Ah so! I must have hit a word the liberals don’t like to hear in my last comment, since it has to be approved or censored. Thought Amac was above that level. Oh well.

Some great comments. Many right on the marx, pun intended. Proof of the statement ” never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. We are underestimating these miserable bastards, and we should be ashamed that we were so ignorant and complacent. Want to know where it all leads? Read or watch Soylent Green, Fahrenheit 451, Nineteen Eighty Four, Animal Farm, and A Brave New World. Then take a look at our American History before these bastards rewrite it to suit their utopian pipe-dream. If these kooks we’re so bad, why do they stay here? We must have done something right though, or so many people from other countries wouldn’t risk life and limb to come here to live.

The FASCIST liberals can only win if you believe everything they say since they think they are smarter than GOD.
They even live in the FANTASY WORLD and ILLUSIONAL perception that they know better than you on how to live your life.
Best part is that they think they are protected themselves when in REALITY they are NOT. It’s just a matter of time before their own comes for them and their delusion of POWER and CONTROL is used against themselves.

I agree with all these comments. What can be done to stop all this craziness? People need to wake up and realize that once these people take over American the will be no one(except God) that can help us.

“Our Constitution will only work for a moral society “. If God is a just God, which He is, He must punish those that turn away from Him. He can only punish a nation while it is still a nation. The answer, turn back to God!

If we didn’t have a media in bed with the left, things would be a lot different. When free speech is gone, you’re left with dictators.

People who went to vote in person during the 2020 election got turned away by officials who told them they had already voted!

Hey, it’s that persons fault that he/she got turned away. Say to the official, “prove it”. I want to see the proof that I have voted already. Make a stand for your believes. You have your official ballot in your hands don’t you. So, how can they prove you’ve voted already and why believe them if you know the truth. Don’t be a chicken.

You know, conservatives are not really good people. Why? because all they do is report and complain about what the left is doing but they don’t do anything to stop it.

That is the reality right now. Republicans are playing the I am with you act, while behind the scenes they are lock step with Biden and the Democratic Communist Party.

That’s both true and false. Conservatives do do something; we elect representatives that are suppossed to enact (or repeal) laws and policies that reflect our wishes. And then they stab us in the back. Over and over again. Usually more through inaction than aything else. Our problem is we keep relying on using the system that is suppossed to work for us, but doesn’t. We elect the “right” people. They turn out not to be the “right” people, or there are simply not enough of them. We elect Trump. He actually works for us, so what do our elected representatives do? They allow the next election to be stolen. So what’s the alternative? Revolution? Secession? What do you do? Here is one thing the average person can do; stop complying. Civil disobedience. Be careful and smart about it though. Even the patriots prior to the revolution were careful about how they pushed back.

This fall will be the telling story as to whether it is that our votes mean anything anymore or that a revolution and secession must begin.

I read a lot of good comments that all lead to one thing. A lot is being said but very little is being done. If we expect the government we’re all complaining about to take the needed actions then we may as well just, “tell another joke”. One way everyday Americans might help is with the Convention of States. You can find this, read about it, then research it starting on “[email protected]”.

It was four good years under President Trump. For democrats whacked-out on Trump derangement syndrome, America must be punished, all gains made during the Trump year upended. It is anyone’s guess why democrats think that works for them.

Trouble here in America, our government hates us. Be it 9/11, panic of 2008, Hillary Clinton fall down and go boom, the Wuhan lab leak, Russia invades Ukraine, notice how Washington DC’s solution to the problem is always the same: it’s working class America they punish — asunder.

We’re bad Americans. Very bad. High inflation, high crime, unchecked illegal immigration, pain at the pump, our grocery prices doubled, America must be punished. For Democrats, that is their attitude.

As punishment, shoving homosexuality, pedophilia, sexual ambiguity, straight down our throats, they know they can’t get us. They’re making a grab for our children, our grandchildren, instead.

Appropriate social justice per the democrat political party, if it’s a Muslim opening fire on the subway: terrorism. If it’s a white-boy opening fire on the subway: white supremacy. If the shooter was the soul brotha? A victim of systemic racism, lifelong white exploitation, the brotha is well within his right opening fire on the cracker Jack whitie, on the subway, or otherwise.

Social justice double-standard, courtesy of the whacked-out democrats, had it been a white guy having slapped Chris Rock? Verdict: systemic racism and white supremacy, a lifetime sentence! Had it been a white guy, slapped by Will Smith? Social justice, no charges filed. As it was, black-on-black violence? “Gee, wasn’t it refreshing, a black man defending the honor of his promiscuous, philandering wife?”
