Hang on tight, folks. It's going to be a rough and tumble ride through the next two years till November of 2018. We have our work cut out for us, and we will flip both the house and the senate. There will be a national braying of our Democratic donkey. Those of us who live in Mohave County know what a ruckus our beloved wild burros can put up when things don't go their way. Mourning is not an option; morning is. A new morning every day till 2018 and a steady slog through to 2020. Hang on, it will be bumpy, but we will make it.
Well, That Happened!
The Resistance Begins
I, like many of you, have regurgitated the election ad nauseam. Just when I'm done and have decided that if I'm not part of the solution, then I'm part of the problem; a new wave of rhetoric starts. This one is really dangerous to all freedom loving people in the United States.
Let me explain. Just last week Paul Ryan said he is going to dismantle Medicare, so it must be true. Right? NO, Paul Ryan will do exactly what he can get away with if we let him. We live in a land where we live by the constitution, and the laws passed and interpreted by the courts put wheels on that constitution. Then I hear Trump will take away the citizenship of anyone burning the flag. True? Right? NO, we live in a land of checks and balances and Trump is not a dictator; he won't be as long as we fight his insane unconstitutional ideas.
What we need to worry about is our own fear and desires to jump into the middle of the panic, the rhetoric that is going around. Come on Democrats, calm down. This is not the only time we have had a scary Republican president. Our job is to settle in; rebuild from our tremendous disappointment; learn how our government works; write our governor, our congress and anyone who will listen when we see the constitution or our ideals getting trampled on. And above all, stand up for those whom this presidency will try to grind into the ground.
This is our time to stay proactive: physically, emotionally and financially. We will overcome this too!
