Over the past year, Donald J. Trump’s drama queen behavior has sucked the political air out of this country. That means the focus is always on him. Those who did not vote for him spend a lot of energy decrying the madness that his Presidency represents. But in so doing the focus is still on Donald J. Trump. Decry him all you want. However, in not putting forward policy alternatives, you, Democrats in particular and those who voted against him yield all of the political attention in American on him and the Republicans, acting like a congress (Look it up, what is a group of Baboons called, inappropriately it is called a congress, thank goodness it is not a congregation, Wrong as this is, it should be the case they are called a congress). So, rather than focusing on Donald J. Trump’s failures, which his base has turned into wins, and the Republican fiasco of repealing and replacing a program that is working, despite the uncertainty created by Donald J. Trump and the Republicans in Congress, but needs some fine tuning or outright fixing, Democrats need to make noise about what they would do if they were in power—without referencing the failure of Donald J. Trump and the Republicans in Congress. While I will admit, I turn on the news to see what the chief idiot has done today (and his minions in two Republican Caucuses in Congress), I too need to supply policy that the American People can attribute to the Democrats and other reasonable People.
Stay tuned and make proposals in the meantime.
