Dereliction of Duty: The Failure of The Republican Congress


When will Republicans in Congress do their jobs? It’s a question that seems to grow in relevance with each passing day. This is the party that likes to wrap its self in the American flag whenever it is politically convenient, the “Make America Great Again”, crowd.  When, I wonder, will the Republicans in Congress and in the Senate, and I’m not talking about the ones on their way out the door going to put the country they all claim to love so much above Donald Trump and his staunch supporters?

The answer is becoming clear, never. Not as long as the Republican base supports Donald Trump no matter what he says or does. Until then we as a nation will careen from one crisis to the next becoming weaker and more isolated in the world. It is obvious to almost everyone that it is more important to the Republican politicians to hold on to their jobs than protect the American people and our American way of life from an unhinged and out-of-control President.

With each passing day, the evidence that Donald Trump is compromised and is trying to derail the Mueller investigation is less theory and more fact. America is under attack and those elected in the Republican Party are refusing to protect us from Russian hackers and dare I say the President of the United States. Donald Trump, his unwavering supporters, and the Republican Party as it stands at this moment are a clear and present danger to the United States and our American way of life.

After watching Trump’s betrayal of our country and our allies in Helsinki and on the world stage, and his subsequent behavior after returning to American I’m compelled to  write about it. Vladimir Putin ordered the attacked on our elections and may have influenced the outcome of the election and is trying to do it again in the coming mid-term elections.

I can only hope that in November our country will have a new majority in the United States Congress. A Congress that will stand up to Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
