You got suckered. The two party system failed you. It turned the first 100 days of Donald Trump into a partisan nightmare that ended with the GOP’s surrender to Democrats. You lost because our two party system provides for lawmakers and their politics, not you and your family.
Free college is a bad joke that refuses to die. Senator Bernie Sanders just joined Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) to have another try at a federal promise of college for the masses.1 Sanders’ press release about the College for All Act talks of how things are different from the days when a high school diploma was enough.
With the nation at their mercy Republicans are about to blow the mission they staked their reputation to the instant Democrats passed the Affordable Care Act. We’ve heard the buzzwords: repeal, replace, dismantle. We might as well add destroy. The press isn’t great, but how could it be?
Republicans are the opposite of a political machine. They are not skilled at using public anger. They don’t indulge the kinds of attacks the Democratic machine inspires in liberal haters who would rather cheer America’s downfall than tolerate the slightest conservative dissent.
Go ahead. Sit back, count your money, and watch Republicans dispose of Obamacare. They promised to do it. It’s what we wanted. The party has been waiting for the chance for years. The new White House will claim a massive victory for the people when it’s done.
Take a moment to ponder the hypocrisy of the angry demonstrators who think they lost something big last week. The Constitution and our free society honor their right to protest. They have the freedom to voice dissatisfaction after losing a completely legitimate election.
Why are we so vulnerable? We are becoming a nation of sitting ducks waiting to be plucked. Even if Americans are easy marks does that make saving us from ourselves a job for the Federal Government? We should be smart enough not to burn our hands on the stove.
