Where to go from here?

It’s easy to be united in opposing something. It’s hard to be united in standing for something. This is a dilemma many Republicans face in Congress. Health care reform in the House of Representatives was initially stalled. While most Republicans backed the bill, conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus and moderates in the Tuesday Group were opposed to it for different reasons.

The President, Executive Orders, and the Attorney General

President Trump’s recent Executive Order (whitehouse.gov) on immigration has created quite the ruckus.  We have protests around our nation.  We have Democratic leadership calling it unconstitutional and unlawful.  No part of the political spectrum is immune from being caught up in propaganda and headlines.  Do we blindly believe the hysteria?  Should we prepare for the rise of the Fourth Reich in America?  Definitely not.
