OUR GOVERNMENT TODAY – GO, WHOA and NO!
I will be the first to admit that I would love to see America “United” again before I croak. In my life I watched as a boy when the people banded together and unbelievably won WWII only because we were united. I served in the US Navy during the Korean war when again the people were united. I watched America live through a great depression when again too many people were dirt poor but few gave up. Then unfortunately LBJ assumed the Presidency when John Kennedy was assassinated less than 15 miles where I was working that infamous day in Dallas. This was the beginning of the downhill slide in the 1960’s when American cowards surfaced and started the revolutionary mission to destroy the United States of America. A war in Vietnam was fought to help the politicians and bankers gain more control over the people. We paid with some 60,000 young American lives and ended up with eight years of the Clinton’s and eight more with the Obama’s.
Along came Reagan and some sanity surfaced and America again gained stature worldwide. The people again united to strengthen our Republic and we had a few years of prosperity and peace with Reagan, our last great leader until January 20, 2017. We still have wars in three Muslim countries that have killed a few more thousand young Americans to help the politicians and bankers. We can stay and fight in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq for a thousand years and it will never help the United States, Europe or anyone. Anyone, and I have, who spends time in the sandy expanse called the Middle East can see in a heartbeat that these people will never become westernized or Christians. Hell will freeze over before anyone will change there folks. Ask the Russians who were happy to see us bog down like they did in Afghanistan.
Then the people voted to hope that Donald Trump could force Congress, the Supreme Court and the bloated Federal Government to again follow our Constitution and create jobs for Americans. For the last several years the Washington hierarchy has decided that our Federal laws only apply to selective citizens and politicians. Even Presidents, especially Obama who even issued orders to ignore certain laws while our Judicial Branch sat on their Royal Robed butts and did nothing. Even worse Congress watched the laws they enacted ignored and decided to do nothing.
The Republicans won the whole taco, the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The only problem is they are about as organized as one-legged man at an ass kicking contest. At first they appeared ready to kick ass and take names. Unfortunately they discovered that they are leaderless. Paul Ryan is trying hard to help Trump get things done that he promised the folks. With the exception of a few dissidents the House is boldly moving forward. They have listened to the people who want action not stagnation. The folks want jobs. Ryan is leading the conservatives on a path back to common sense. Unless their wheels fall off the House, backed by the President are on the “GO”
The Senate, never a group to understand anything the past several years, is actually a body of pompous, arrogant and for most part useless debaters who could not even agree what day it is unless someone bombed an American city again. They are equally divided into three segments. The Republicans are divided into some “Go’s, and some Whoa’s and the Democrats who have become 100% “no’s and continue to make the GOP look as stupid as they have become. God almighty could not get these Republicans to sing from one song book unless they were voting to increase their own salaries or retirement benefits. The RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) are getting braver each day and I hope Trump helps every one of these dissidents defeated in their next election cycle. The two main screamers, McCain and Graham should be honest and join the Demoncrats who they best support. Others are getting braver and need to be axed.
Hopefully Donald Trump will full fill his promise to drain the Washington swamp. I have no doubt he will change the way our government does business unless he is murdered like Justice Scalia. It would be nice if all of the Demoncrats were shipped to California, Oregon and Washington States. Then let them secede from the union This would allow the 13 million illegal aliens to be together again where they are accepted. Like an old saying about the the slaves which was “We should have picked our own cotton”, we should mow our own yards and harvest our own vegetables. C Brewer
