Single Party Rule — Single Parent Homes
Single parent households are typically characterized by enduring hardships.
Often times, the head of a household in a single parent home is burned out, experiencing major difficulty in juggling family, work, and self care in the lifestyle in which he or she is the lone provider and decision maker.
For these individuals, no one is readily available to rely on. No one is there to provide an alternative viewpoint.
There is no one there to hold him or her accountable for discretions or questionable decisions.
There is no one there to help ensure the safety of those who live in the house or to make sure everyone who lives there is taken care of, with their most basic of needs being met.
Baltimore City’s single party rule is like that of a single parent household.
The Democratic Party is generally the only party that is represented in the city.
Being a conservative — and worse yet, being a Republican — is considered a nasty lifestyle. This overreach and blatant political ploy has put, and kept, the city under the thumb of Democrats for generations.
Like the single parent household, the Democratic Party in Baltimore stands alone and is admired by far too many residents for its willingness to lead the way alone.
Unfortunately for the city, this one party domination has created a “family” that is entrenched in failure, crime, and poverty.
This party has shown that it can not be relied on as it pushes aside all alternative viewpoints.
Their iron grip on the area keeps those elected from within the party without someone from the outside holding them accountable for indiscretions or questionable decisions.
Without oversight or a partner with a different lens, the Democratic Party has proven that it cannot ensure the safety of those who live in the city nor can they make sure that everyone who lives there is taken care of, with their most basic of needs being met.
Having people from the same family play pivotal roles in the governing of a city is highly problematic. Likewise, having the same party dominate the area — generation after generation — without a differing viewpoint is devastating.
