“Protesting is patriotic.” “Dissent is not disloyalty.” “A patriot is a rebel, not a ‘yes man.’” These are all true and refer directly to the way democracy remains at the core of our nation’s government.
Only one Republican in the House or the Senate had the courage to stand up to the bully president, and John McCain is no longer with us. The shutdown would not exist of Republicans had done the right thing. Congress has the ability to override a veto, but Trump is more important to them than the United States of America. Why should they care about more than 400,000 Americans? They are being paid and continue to keep their benefits, so to hell with lower level government workers.
I believe in not only the truth, but in exposing corruption. The ‘fourth estate’ has failed to tell the truth about Trump and his circle of sinners. It’s up to those of us who are paying attention to what is happening in Washington to inform the American people about the truth.
