The republican leadership(if it can be called that with a straight face)in the Senate is about as useless as “milk dispensers” on a boar hog. The only thing they seem to be able to do is make excuses. Now it appears that President Trump has set his expectations to high. He actually expected to get things done. The justification for that remark, “He’s not from the political world and does not know how things work around D.C.”. Well I am not from around D.C. either but I am from around here, and around here a mans word is his bond. The politicians seem to have forgotten that little tidbit. You did make campaign promises, did you not. One of which was to repeal Obamacare, you said you would repeal Obamacare, you never said that we should not expect too much. You certainly never said that we should not expect you to repeal Obamacare.
It becomes more apparent by the day that a statement made in the past is true, “There is not a dimes worth of difference between the political parties”. The republicans are little more than Whigs, radical red republicans, the democrats are little more than socialists, radical red socialists. Both are for big government, a big centralized powerful government.
From this moment forward I will expect you to do nothing, my expectations of you and from you will be low, to the point of being non-existent. That way I will never be disappointed in you. If by some miracle you do get something done I will get more than I expected. Thanks for finally coming clean with us.
I am pretty much done with you republicans, at least on the national level. I will no longer put or help to put a pretend friend at my side. You Whigs are no friend to America or to me(socialists never are), though you pretend to be. You have proven that a pretend friend will turn on a dime. You may still wind up at my side but I will keep a wary eye one you. We still do pretty well with republicans(not as many pretend friends, Whigs)at the state level here in Florida, well but not great.
While I am here I might as well clear this up for the politicians and the talking heads. There is a special election coming up in the state of Alabama to fill a vacant senate seat. I have heard of it being referred to as Jeff Sessions seat. I would like to point this out, the Senate seat belongs to the state of Alabama, it does not and did not belong to Jeff Sessions. He was just the most recent occupant of that seat. For that matter there is no man or political party that can lay claim to any seat in Congress. The two Senate seats belong to the State, the seats in the House of Representatives belong to that District in that State. Choose wisely Alabama.
When and if the Convention of States convenes there are two things I would like to come from it. 1 The States Rights Initiative, including Nullification and if necessary Secession. 2 Repealing the 17th Amendment.
As long as I mentioned Nullification and Secession I might as well mention this. There is currently a petition going around here in Florida, a petition for the Secession of Florida from the federal union. A petition to place on the ballot for the citizens of Florida to decide to Seceded or not. An uphill struggle for sure but a worthy struggle. I must admit the Republic of Florida sounds pretty good. The movement in Florida is for real and the petition is for real.
On a side note as mentioned above this movement in Florida is real, unlike those who want out because they did not get the President they wanted(California). California and the rest have no chance unless Dixie goes first.
It is not just in Florida but all across the South. There are those of us who see the South as a defeated and occupied land. The Confederate States of America still exists. The Southern people and culture still exist.
God Bless Dixie
God Bless the Southern People and the Southern Culture.
