(RightIsRight.co) – Some people think that the world changes for the better over time, but data and human nature usually tell a different story. Statistics show violent crime rates are rising in major cities, and this reality could cost Democrats their House majority in the 2022 midterms.
Data pooled together by the Washington Examiner shows that homicides in major cities are up 40% over last year, and almost all of the 66 largest police jurisdictions saw violent crime rise in at least one category. This news comes as Democrats continue to push for defunding police departments. But, as many Americans watch their cities sink deeper into violence and worry for their families and children, they renew their calls for law and order.
This momentum may be just what the GOP needs to help take back the House in 2022. Reporter Neil Munro shares more:
Democrat columnists are alarmed about the political risk of rising crime.
But the party's base is not giving up on their defund-the-police & structural racism agenda, despite 1K+ extra dead.
So Democratic pols & corp. donors are silent. https://t.co/TehKHNU1fM

All Americans should be able to feel safe in their towns and feel confident that the police will respond if needed. By supporting our officers in uniform and electing lawmakers who keep them funded, our nation will remain strong and safe, allowing all who live in it to prosper.
