What Is Wrong with the Democrats?

Isn’t this a fun time of year? Now we all get to watch the feeding frenzy when the Democratic party will start eating their own. These people are so rabid that if one of their own children was running against them, they would order them well done and ask for a sharper steak knife.

I mentioned in a previous blog that with both political parties being unable to get anything meaningful done on behalf of their own constituency, now may be the time for a strong independent to run. What better person to run than our own POTUS Donald J. Trump? We now have the most successful president in the history of our country despite politicians on both sides wanting the swamp to run and remain the same. Can you imagine what our country could be accomplishing now if the politicians were all concerned about our country and less about their own pocketbooks and agendas?

Our politicians must not be cognizant of the fact that the rest of the world constantly watches the United States of America. Although we have only 5% of the population of the world, we have generated most of the wealth on the planet. Every country looks at our one greatest weakness: Our country is run by politicians who have a lack of synergy in everything they do. Can we even begin to imagine the face we would show the world if we all worked together?

What is frightening is that forever it has been said our country is much too strong to be destroyed from outsiders and will definitely be destroyed from within. That is the exact scenario every American now watching from a front-row seat. Our politicians, sworn to work for us and our country, are in their own little seat in the boat doing their best to sink us. Of course, they are the only ones with life jackets.

How does something like this happen? Are all of us so blind to our surroundings that we will do nothing to vote the obstructionists out of office? It is time to vote individuals into office that care enough about their country to accomplish some good.

How can a great nation that once ranked number one in the world in everything, every endeavor they pursued, become last in the world? Last in education, last in healthcare and this sentence could go on and on, but it is easier to ask, in what are we now number one? We just lost our title of the fattest country in the world to Mexico.

God bless America. Is it time for our president to become independent? If he does, not many Republicans or Democrats could blame him, and many American people may very well cheer him on. Imagine that! Would Democrats and Republicans run scared or just the obstructionists?

God bless you all from the Maverick Doctor,
