As a centrist, I often attack one side or another. Today I get to go after both sides.
President Trump’s diplomatic style leaves a lot to be desired. He publicly attacks some of our closest friends and is deferential to Putin. We need to understand that Russia is not our friend. Trying to tamper with our elections is sufficient proof of that. Our democracy and the freedom and prosperity it gives us should be cherished. We all should be outraged over what Russia did. To say it didn’t happen is inexcusable. I don’t believe it was a slip of the tongue. President Obama should also be criticized. He knew what they were doing yet said or did nothing until after the election.
The reaction by the Left and their allies in the media has been absolutely ridiculous. A Google search on “Trump treason” turned up 17.5 million results. The Constitution says that treason “shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort”. Clearly his actions don’t even begin to reach that level.
The Left is so full of hate that they seemed to have lost the ability to think rationally. If you don’t like someone in office, you have two choices: overthrow the government or get someone else elected. The second choice is definitely more practical. Condemning Trump won’t get them any votes. Everyone has already decided on him pro or con. Neither will moving far to the left.
There are many fine men and women in government who are working hard for a better America. Unfortunately, they are in the minority. Both parties are doing us a disservice.
