After 100 days of an illegitimate Trump presidency, Paul Ryan has been exposed. He has proven himself to be a hypocrite, and revealed his lack of ability to govern effectively. Once a leader of the ‘never Trump’ movement, he now bows to his every demand. Ryan has also proven that he is no better at his job than John Boehner; he is not a leader.
But Ryan is getting another chance; this may be his last opportunity.
46 lawmakers have written letters to Ryan. They are demanding that Congress be more involved before Trump commits another rash action which could lead to war.
“It’s long past time for Congress to take responsibility for the war against ISIS by finally holding a debate and vote on whether to authorize any future military action,” said Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), a leading voice on the issue who signed Friday’s letter.
“With his recent military strike against Syria, we are also declaring that President Trump must not undertake any new military operations without the approval of Congress,” he said.
I believe that the Joint Chiefs of Staff must also become involved. Trump obviously has one or more mental disorders, and the leaders of our nation must not allow one man’s incompetency to place us into another war. The United States has not won a war since WWII. No intelligent American believes that war serves a purpose other than the ultimate sacrifice of men and women and billions if not trillions of dollars spent for nothing.
The question is; will Ryan take action, or will he continue to prove to the American people that he was castrated long ago? He is third in line for the presidency, and if he doesn’t care about the future of our nation; who will?
Grow a pair Mr. Ryan. Stand up and do the right thing at least once in your career. You owe it to all of us; your party must come second for once.
