I think it is fair to say that as a country we are virtually split down the middle with half being Democrats and the other half Republicans. I am not suggesting that we all have party affiliations, just that mostly our thinking leans to the right or to the left. I know there are some Independents, but at crunch time, election day, they usually have to pick from one of the major party candidates. Historically we have elected Democrats for a time and then we elect Republicans. And on we go. Some gotta win and some gotta lose. We deal with the other side with respect but always with loyalty to our country first.

Something very strange has happened, however. The Democrats ran a flawed candidate who, because of her flaws as well as her poor campaign, lost. The Republican, while also somewhat flawed, did manage to appeal to a majority enough to win. The election then is over. A winner has been decided. To coin a popular Democrat phrase, “Let’s move on.”

For some reason, call it poor sportsmanship, disloyalty to our country, or just childish behavior, many in the Democrat party cannot accept the will of the people. They have apparently decided to launch a “resistance” campaign. They obviously feel that they have political points to gain by their actions. They will do anything they can to slow, disrupt, or even to stop President Trump from doing his duty as President. It could work, but I think they should at least consider the possibility they could harm or even destroy their own party by this resistance. Remember that about half of the country voted for Trump. Also remember that several Senators as well as all House Members will have to run for reelection in 2018. Many from states that Trump carried handily.

Here’s what to look for in the very near future. As the economy continues to improve under the new administration’s policies, more and more people are going to get on board. The news media’s continuous slander of President Trump will soon silence itself by the simple fact that for the most part they report untruths and innuendo. Like the little boy who cried wolf, they will soon be tuned out with devastating results to their bottom lines. The ridiculous myth of “Russian” interference will disappear when nothing is proven. The media will just look sillier and sillier and lose all credibility. They and the left are on the wrong side, period.

The real wakeup call is going to be the 2018 election. Several Democrat senators are going to be in trouble and they know it. The House will doubtless pick up a large number of new Republicans as people watch our country regain its previous greatness.

We are going to see better border security. We will soon see tax relief for both corporations as well as individual citizens. The long awaited replacement of Obamacare is at hand. Fixing the mess that Obama left us with will not be easy but it is doable and will get done.

I am reminded of the old saying, “When you are in a hole, stop digging.” That is my advice to the mainstream media and to the left in general. Scream if you wish. Protest if you must. But, if you fail, and I believe you will, look forward to a future without a viable Democrat party because you will have destroyed it.
