So this is where we are in America on Christmas Eve, 2018. As the year comes to a close, Congressional Republicans continue to act as if the current president is not a clear and present danger to the United States. Those of us on the left-side of the political aisle see things drastically different.
We don’t have a crystal ball for 2019. If we did, I’d like to think it would show that Donald Trump will not finish his term. But, it’s not a foregone conclusion. He still maintains strong support from Republicans. Trying to predict his fate is pointless.
What we can predict though? Accountability. Yes, it’s coming on January 3, 2019. We must be thankful for that. The American people spoke on November 6 … loud and clear. This president, more than any before him, deserves and will get a thorough examination of actions he’s taken as president. No stone can be left unturned.
He’ll call it harassment. He’ll call it a witch hunt.
I call it a political reckoning.
To end on a positive note, I’d like to thank our followers for giving us a chance. We’re still evolving. We’re still a work-in-progress. We’re trying to make some sense in the crazy political world we find ourselves in. 2019 promises an even more challenging way forward. We hope you stick with us and come along for the ride ahead.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.
