Heard On The Street . . .

 

Walking down Main Street, this is what folks are talking about in towns across the U.S.A.   Good Americans, who have been betrayed by the Uniparty in Washington D.C., have a lot on their minds and are crying out for new leadership. Thankfully, on November 8, 2016, their voices were heard loud and clear!

GOP Plays Lucy To Our Charlie Brown: Enough Already!

As the alligators thrash around in the DC swamp, those of us on The Forgotten Street, Main Street USA, only grow more disgusted by how shabbily many in the GOP are treating President Donald Trump and thumbing their noses at us.

Election after election, we get the GOP pleas for money and support, “Give us back the House, give us the Senate, give us the White House.”  “We’ll repeal Obamacare, we’ll build the Wall, we’ll give you tax reform, we’ll get more jobs and growth.”

After we finally get a real leader who could make it all come to fruition, the GOP leadership pulls the same stunt:  The GOP is Lucy with the football, we’re Charlie Brown lining up for the kick, only to fall on our butts once again.

Another election, another switcheroo with the football.

Republicans in Congress are letting Democrats run roughshod over them, even after winning a clear mandate in the 2016 election.  The Democrats are at their political weakest in decades, becoming almost an endangered species in a majority of state governments.

For this reason, our only hope now is that President Trump will be able to find more ways to shift more power out of Washington and back to the states.  That will be the only way we can get our country back on the right track again.

There just are far too many Lucys who can’t be trusted in the national GOP.  In addition to inept leaders like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, we have weasels like Bob Corker and Ben Sasse who try to play both sides against the middle.

In a whole other category is the Hanoi Songbird, John McCain, whose crazed hatred of all things Donald Trump has made him the biggest traitor in GOP history.  He’s made his bed as the Democrat’s secret weapon, so let him lie in it.

We’ve reached the point where we’ve taken too many kicks at the football only to be betrayed once again.  Well, the game is over.  We’re officially done with the GOP.  No more contributions or straight party line voting.

We’ll forge our own path with President Trump leading the way.  We won’t expect much out of Congress, which is overrun with thumb suckers who pull their dresses over their heads if the New York Times or Washington Post runs another false narrative of made up stories. 

What these GOP losers fail to understand is that their base in the real America doesn’t read those rags. More and more, we’re turning off national television news as well.

We finally realize we can’t influence anything in the Swamp.  So we’ll focus our attention on the governments we can influence the most at the state and local levels.  The states are the only places the people might still be able to have a voice because the corruption in DC is just totally out of control.

We’ll still stand strongly behind our president and have his back because we know he has ours.  There is much he can do with our support once we let the GOP know it can take its damn football and leave us alone.

It’s time for a true second party because in Washington there is only the Uniparty that’s been screwing us for decades.  Lead the way, President Trump, and we will follow.

Thanks for reading!  We’ve been treated like saps for far too long by the GOP leadership.  If they won’t keep their promises, and keep moving at a snail’s pace on the agenda we overwhelmingly supported, then we’ll move on and let them rot.

God bless all our visitors to The Forgotten Street!
