The recent political violence has all Americans naturally upset and asking why. A partial answer is that no president in modern times has been treated as badly by the losing party and by the media as President Trump.
On Inauguration Day, 57 Democratic representatives boycotted the peaceful transition of power. This was followed by attempting to obstruct every cabinet appointment and every attempt by the president to deal with our many domestic and overseas problems. For almost a year, investigations of the president and his associates have hampered the administration’s ability to govern, cost taxpayers millions and produced no evidence of wrong doing.
Enough is enough. If the Democrats want to get back into power, they should try to convince the voters that they have better solutions to our many problems. Their current resistance is just going to make everything more complicated, and they may do worse in the next election.
