To The Daily Sun,
Party before country . . .
Each day seems to bring more calls from Democrat leaders for another investigation. Each day seems to bring more stalling and more obstruction by Democrat leaders in their efforts to delay the installation of the presidential appointments necessary to effectively manage the country. Each day seems to bring more exploitation of unfounded rumors, treating them as fact for political gain. Each day seems to show that professional politicians care more for retaining and growing their political power than they care for the good of the republic. Each day seems to show a Democrat willingness to impede and obstruct every effort to govern by Republican leadership.
In June of 1858, in accepting the Republican Party's nomination as candidate for the Senate from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln gave his famous speech: "A house divided cannot stand". In that speech he said: "A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become alike lawful in all the states, old as well as new, North as well as South."
Lincoln was addressing the nation's division over slavery and that there could be no middle ground. The nation would either remain united or it would fail.
The issue that divides us today is not slavery, it is the rabid desire for, and effort to, retain political power. Some are willing to put the nation at risk to achieve that end.
We continue hear some self-righteous Democrat politicians continue droning on about the Russians interfering with the election. While most people experts acknowledge that whatever interference the Russians had did not affect the outcome of the election, the left seems to want to use that involvement to tar President Trump. Lost in their carping is the fact that whatever was done by Russia, was done during the administration of President Obama,and whatever happened can be attributed to that administration's malfeasance.
It has been shown that the Republican National Committee took the steps necessary to thwart efforts of the Russians to "hack" into their email systems. But, the Democratic National Committee did not take similar precautions and their systems were "hacked." Those hacks revealed significant underhanded actions by the Democrat Party leadership, some in collusion with press. Rather than step up and acknowledge their malfeasance and wrong-doings, the Democrats continue to deflect the public from their actions by attacking the incoming administration.
President Trump gave an excellent address to the joint session of Congress. He called for unity and cooperation to address the issues facing our nation. Democrats seem to be unwilling to do so. As Abraham Lincoln said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand."
