We elect people to Congress to lead our country. However, at the present time, the hatred for President Trump is so strong that Congress is totally paralyzed. It would be better for our country if all the Democrat Congresspersons would just resign. I’m not sure that the Republicans can do much better, but it is time to give them a chance.
Allowing a few congressmen to shut our government down to nurse their wounds is unconscionable. Also, there should be enough respectable Democrats in Congress to put a stop to this nonsense. It is much like a bunch of little kids playing a game of who likes who.
President Trump speaks his mind in a way that makes many of us cringe. At the same time, he has accomplished much good for our country, even in the face of unrelenting pressure. Although the media will not acknowledge it, respect on the world stage is much higher. He expects other countries to do their part in world affairs, rather than take advantage of us while we grovel at their feet.
Most Democrat presidential candidate hopefuls do not have a clue, based on their proposals. They all believe that government is the answer to everything. None of the socialistic programs currently in force are self supporting. Without a capitalist mentality strongly in force, all these programs would fail miserably. Just take a look at education, for example. With no one left to earn the money to pay the taxes for education, what would support our public education system? Also, socialist programs open us up to greed and fraud.
A return to Godly principles in government would do wonders for our country.
