As badly as they want you to believe it, our country hasn’t turned to the dark side because of Trump. He’s not the devil. The devil is in the Democrats who skulk around waiting for opportunity to knock so they can make another play for America’s soul.
During the Democratic Party’s Election Security Week of Action Nancy Pelosi’s remarks at a press conference make it clear what her party’s Save our Democracy call to action means:
They dishonor the Constitution. They degrade the environment from land. They denigrate the diversity that is the beauty of the mix of America and they undermine our values as a country, who we are as a country.
24 Democrats have lots to offer in this pre-election year. Their promises will be piled high on your plate before the real theatrics even get started. The stage is set with twin House and Senate bills calling for universal health care and election-stealing changes for the people to “renew Americans’ faith in our democracy.”
Diversity is a pillar of the Democratic agenda that is threatening to crush hopes for a sweeping takeover next year. One of the party’s greatest strengths has always been its ability to reach a consensus, or at least the appearance of agreement on what members stand for.
Had Virginia Governor Ralph Northam committed a crime he might be in less hot water than he is now over a decades-old picture. Politicians can salvage their careers after a criminal conviction, but no apologies will save them from a search and destroy political climate where the slightest allegation of racism spells the end.
The Congressional Budget Office sent a bipartisan gift to Capitol Hill with its report on the dollars and cents cost of the partial shutdown. Lawmakers can’t resist the opportunity to seize on anything with a high cost to taxpayers if they don’t support whatever caused the loss.
The IRS announcement that tax filing season is about to begin despite the partial shutdown sent a strong message to taxpayers about what we are good for in Washington’s eyes. We are here to fund our lawmakers’ government at their whim with no guarantee that they won’t deny us what we pay for.
