The President’s “Throne” is not a Game

Let’s face it: From Day 1, Republiteas were in lock-step against anything President Obama wanted to do. Sheepish Dems — those who needed the votes of Dixiecrats (better known as those who never liked the idea of a Black president) — gave tepid support of game-changing policies, like the ACA. They didn’t want to be seen as friends of the Obama (Black)White House; bottom line. That type of fence-sitting cost many Dems their seats. It wasn’t President Obama’s fault, it was the fault of a nation where race matters and bigotry still thrives (overtly; covertly; explicitly; implicitly).

Yet, Republiteas want to declare that those who don’t give 45 “a chance” are doing the same political deal as they did. NOT.

To compare the painfully unqualified winner of a painfully divisive election to the last administration is absurd. In fact, this administration’s myriad shortcomings are showing in tweets and headlines daily — and it’s at the expense of our nations credibility and security.

It’s ironic that the majority of the nation now understands the healthcare benefits they risk losing under the inhumane legislation being offered by the Republiteas — clearly in favor of healthcare lobbyists and against the needs of the American people. Those who endorse repeal/replace care nothing about you, therefore, you should not want them holding any office. It can be fixed, when there is will, not willful disregard for humanity. To threaten to withhold healthcare from people or to threaten to withhold payments for healthcare, like a hostage, is the equivalent to premeditated murder — plain and simple. They should #FixTheACA, instead of trying to defend the propaganda against it. We should condemn this divisive political lunacy.

Bipartisanship for the good of the nation should drive our electeds, not party loyalty or affinity for foreign adversaries who help your business enterprise. Some, like Sen. Jeff Flake are speaking up. But, what took those in the party so long to speak up? They just saw the throne, and cares nothing about us, the subjects. Others are still fearful of the modern day Dixiecrats & emboldened bigot of our land. They don’t want to lose those “trumpers” — even if they are still entrenched in alt-Reich philosophies.

They had eight years to improve the healthcare system, yet they keep producing flawed “bright ideas” and seeking extensions. What does it take for even their loyalists to realize that they have the wrong people in office-and they don’t really care about us? Eight years of Republiteas trying to undermine an administration instead of working to strengthen the nation is the worst type of pursuit of the presidential throne. This is a game where America (you & me) are being played.

I invite you to take 2 to 5 minutes for a glimpse of what I think about issues of the day. Nonpartisan, yet, some might not agree - just don’t be disagreeable.
