Government Loyal to the Wishes of the People, Should Unequivocally be the Standard

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

Joe Biden (D))

Joe Biden (D))

When it comes to Representative Government...

Which should come first:

Loyalty to a particular political party?

Always having things their way or it's the highway, no matter the cost, theatrics?

Devotion, but only to those who have helped them along the way; who have been instrumental in getting them there, so to speak?

Of course not...

This help, these favors, often come at a great price, leaving politicians (our Representatives) vulnerable and beholden to everyone but…we the people!

It must always be about "we the people", first and foremost!

I continue to be one of the reluctant hold-outs; butting heads, engaging in always passionate, sometimes fiery, discussions, realizing that it may never happen...we may never again get a Reaganesque Conservative into the office of the Presidency!

We always end up settling for lukewarm, at best, Republicans.

I actually thought that it would be the same, when it came to Donald J. Trump.

Arguing the selection, all while completely understanding - why Trump!

Asking, why not Ted Cruz, Ben Carson...all while completely understanding why Trump's message was resonating with the People.

The people were fed up and frustrated with Government on steroids, which was leaving them far behind, forgotten and forsaken, they didn't need disciplined or soft spoken, they needed a firebrand!

Trump was loud; telling it like it was, speaking truth, no holds barred, in D.C.'s face, with a "let's pull ourselves out of the quicksand and get things done for a change", philosophy!

Once elected, he never ceased being out and about with the rallies, igniting the crowds with a list of accomplishments and a list of all that was yet to come.

Yes, we needed {still desperately need} the swamp drained, the wall built, the people not just working, but making money at it; starting businesses, filling a niche.

Yes, let's not rush through monstrosity spending bills without out first reading them, knowing them inside and out, eliminating all pork and pet projects, doing it right, each and every time.

It's not complicated, it's not rocket science

Make America great again and then don't stop there, make her greater and stronger than ever before and then, work to Keep America Great!

At the end of his first term, I, the once reluctant one, found myself defending Trump at every turn.

When old, tired, spent, News was brought up time and time again... although with every other President, especially more modern day Democrats, we aren't to mention their past or their family drama or their disdain for America...ever!

I digress...

When lies were repeated, as the gospel, against Trump, we were to shout amen!

When a deviant Media couldn't keep their talking points straight, we weren't to question, just accept.

They never let up...not for a second!

So much credibility was lost in the ongoing effort to take out Donald Trump, take out the President of the United States, that it may never again be found.

How can we ever trust a media again, which rushed to judgment, quicker than a Democrat to a camera...every single time, taking the mere suggestion of an impropriety, a hint of an indiscretion, a rumor of a rumor...and running to the camera with it, without first knowing if there was any truth to it!
We witnessed the unfairness and the bias which was leveled against a man doing his very best to be a good President.

Many people were programmed to hate him with a passion, never really knowing why....

now we're programmed to accept Joe Biden, no matter what he says or does, no matter his endless falters, the media fawns all over him.

When Trump's name is mentioned, it is in order to criticize him for such petty things as; tweeting too much, being mean to them, having two scoops of ice cream instead of one.....

Pardon me while I gasp!

Breaking News?

Breaking News?

CNN Gushing Over Joe Biden's love for Ice Cream

No Room for We the People

Again, I get the direction the previous election took, we were in a sad, sad state.

After all, before Trump, we installed an America-pummeling, America-hating, activist, to be President...it wasn't a fluke, we did it good and right...we did it twice!

He excelled at bad-mouthing our Country and at pointing fingers at groups of us, dividing us and isolating us one from the other!

Barack Obama was always...stirring stuff up and why wouldn't he have been?

How else would he get the fundamental transformational change so craved and so desired, if not by stirring things up?

By the time he was through, we desperately needed change to come and Trump was saying all the right things.

Give me a lover of America, any day over a hater of America!

I so appreciated Donald J. Trump entering Washington, like a man on fire, getting things done and not stopping there. He worked/was working, to get more things done for the people, but was stopped short, because too much corruption, too much power, too many people in the People's Capital, are beholden to the wrong group of people!

Trump certainly was not beholden to a Political Party, to outside interests or to anyone.

He wasn't on a mission to transform us, by utilizing divisive measures, he was/is all about preserving this incomparable Republic of ours.

Obama would regularly tell us that “manufacturing jobs were gone and they weren’t coming back”, he told us that if we had worked hard and sacrificed to start up and build up our own businesses, "we didn't build that". He spoke to desperate workers with certain trade skills who may have lost their job to Mexico for example and told them “learn a new trade”, “retrain”…

I wouldn’t hire him as a motivational speaker, let's put it that way!

Even so, even after all of the knocking of America and of American-owned businesses and telling factory workers that their jobs weren’t coming back, Obama's right hand man, Joe Biden, was quickly {well, maybe not so quickly} ...he didn't waste any time, telling us that Donald Trump was to blame for lost jobs!

Now the word quickly becomes more appropriate...as soon as Biden became President, the very first thing he did was to quickly take away jobs, starting with the Keystone Pipeline project.

The second thing was to quickly stop building the security wall on our southern border, so that illegals can more easily flood across.
Have you heard, the number just hit one million?

So you see how this works, we are to ignore the many accomplishments of President Donald Trump and any other person without a (D) by their name, blame them for all that's wrong, give Dems full credit for what's working, all the while giving the impression that the Democratic Party is our only hope!

We are to look the other way, overlook the many critical problems facing us today, ignore the truly obvious incompetence on display every day and instead...stay focused on how bad and how rotten Donald Trump was.

When it comes to the Democratic Party, their sole interest, is the never-ending quest for power, control and status!

It is gained through their pet projects, through those whom they’ve built alliances with and are eternally beholden to and to keep this little game going, the propping up of their Party is essential!

It's never about we the people. It's never about the good of this Nation...there's not enough time...there's not enough room...

When there's nothing in it for them, we the people and our wishes are a lost cause!

Has he, the 'Squad', any other Dem in power, even for a second, considered that NOT ALL landlords are wealthy, not all are evil slum Lords!?!

For most, they are just trying to make a living, like everyone else. In many cases, it's their only source of income.

This mindset never ceases to amaze me, they are incapable of seeing the big picture, they don't care OR they know exactly what they are doing!

One thing is clear, Joe Biden may not have hit tyrannical status quite yet and he won't on his own, but he is no leader and he is easily manipulated!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on August 04, 2021:

A Tyrant!

Ken Burgess from Florida on August 04, 2021:

So, after reading this article, I gotta ask ya...

Supreme Court ruled for an end to the Eviction Moratorium

Congress chose not to extend the Eviction Moratorium

Biden issues a new Moratorium anyways...

What do you call a leader who ignores all our laws in favor of what they want?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on August 04, 2021:

I should have included Obama, since he is mentioned…. ;)

Has your opinion of Barack Obama changed at all?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on August 04, 2021:

Updated in order to transition from how things were with Trump early on to how things are now with Biden, early on.

Have your opinions changed about either one of these men over time?

.

Care to share your thoughts?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 28, 2017:

I do appreciate your opinions, otherwise I'd be completely ignored, as I often am here and on FB.

LOL!!

I'll never be silent...not in my DNA, glad that it isn't in yours either Greg!

Try and enjoy your weekend! I plan to.

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on July 28, 2017:

The politicians don't care about the people. The people voted for Trump to serve as our president. Does that matter? NO...The politicians that don't like Trump will do everything they can to try and keep him from being successful, because they know any success on his part will keep him in office for 2 terms and give him that much more opportunity to "drain the swamp", which scares the lifetime politicians. The sad part is, WE THE PEOPLE are the ones that have to suffer. There, you got my opinion again.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 28, 2017:

Dems, Rinos -

There are forgotten men and women, they exist in the middle.

They keep their nose to the grindstone, barely making ends meet and you have failed them.

They counted on you to end Obamacare, they expected it and you all let them down, you've failed to Represent this group of people, being squeezed from all sides.

So you all move forward, in the comfortable little niches you've carved out for yourselves in D.C.

The poor have their additional assistance from the Gov, which was never required. The poor have always had the Churches and Charities and they were never turned away from the majority of hospitals in the U.S.

When they've truly needed healthcare or assistance, it has always been there for them!

All Government's involvement in healthcare has accomplished, (per their usual 'involvement' in our lives), is to push Middle America to the brink.

The only difference, they'll never be seen or recognized as having been placed there, by you.

They are the forgotten ones!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 27, 2017:

I like your opinion Greg. If only!

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on July 27, 2017:

Hi AB, I believe that anytime something comes to a vote in the house or the senate they should take it back to their individual state and let the people vote then take the results of that vote back and vote the way the people want them to vote. When the house or senate vote on anything they vote the way THEY feel and not actually the way the people feel. That is NOT true representation. It'll never happen, but that would be a little more like the people having at least some say in our country. Just my opinion.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 27, 2017:

Another vote. Repeal of Obamacare not to be. Another day, another fail.

Cruz's most practical solution dismissed. (see previous comment)

Can't say that I'm surprised!

Politicians love to make promises to the people, during elections, but for far too many, in both Parties, it is all about comfortable little niches that they've carved out for themselves in D.C.

We The People...are secondary.

Sad existence.

I was wondering, but who am I to judge....Lol

I will check it out.

No link.

Suzie from Carson City on March 28, 2017:

Didn't I send a link?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 28, 2017:

Hi Paula - It's just a privacy thing. My initials really are A.B. and my last name is Williams and this is my real face...lol. My favorite Teacher called me A.B. so it works for me!

Yes I am familiar with Sanx. I'm always monitoring to make sure things never go too far in 'Comments Section'. I don't know if he or Leslie or a couple of other out-there leftists that have commented here, ever actually read my words or even attempt to process it. Probably not.

Suzie from Carson City on March 28, 2017:

a.b. Really wish I had a "name" to call you....I hate to refer to you by initials.........anyway, you & Greg need to see a perfect example of such pure unadulterated hatred & lack of maturity, that they will even tear apart the first family just for sheer enjoyment. These people are sickos.....Don't need to read the hub, just the comments, to see how LOW this jerk will stoop to attack the children of DT.

After you see how sick and nasty people can be, a.b....feel free to delete this entire comment. No problem, I'm sure you don't want a link posted in your comments.

Why the hell doesn't this Sanx get a job or a hobby...or maybe just a life ..and stop trolling his ignorance all over our site? Trolls are disgusting. We just get rid of one and up pops another....they're just like empty-headed puppets.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 28, 2017:

Glad that we agree on that part Greg.

Sanx...you obviously do not understand the role of our Government.

Their role is to protect....not provide!

The Government should not even be in the health care business.

They certainly should not be in the business of Making Demands on me...purchase this product or pay a fine. Fail to pay the fine, go to jail.

What!?!

Please point out to me, where in our Bill of Rights or where in our Constitution, it states that your health care and my health care is a Right. While you are searching, where does it state that my Government may force me to purchase a product and then fine me or threaten me with jail time, if I do not comply.

Feel free to copy and paste.

We are probably stuck with some form of it, from here on out, but Republicans do not need to have joint ownership of it. That's an 'investment' they can't afford.

Kudos to those Republicans that agree and stood firm.

Sorry Sanx....you have failed to make your case!

Sanxuary on March 28, 2017:

They showed their loyalty quite clearly and its up to the American people who they do not represent to remove them. They truly believe that the trillion dollars invested already in health care should be given to big pharma. They truly believe that you do not need health care. They truly believe that you should pay for health care for a policy that covers nothing. I know a few people who believe that most poor people are getting everything for free. Just think that if they have no choice but to pay for health care that it just might motivate a few more of them to get a job. Of course we have a President who thinks its smart not to pay taxes. Then why would he care if he has all you little people paying taxes for him as he gives our money to big corporations. He wants to lower the corporate tax rate because it is the highest in the World. Still you would be challenged to find a single one of these big corporations who even paid half that rate. Why would they when their best sponsors are the Republican party. When the little people stop believing things that will never improve their lives we might get some people who might. Lets hurry up and vote them out and throw the criminals in jail,

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on March 27, 2017:

No, I don't believe it should have ever been part of the insurance deal. You shouldn't be fined for not having insurance.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 27, 2017:

Thanks for commenting Greg!

Are you okay with the individual mandate?

Greg Schweizer from Corona, California. on March 27, 2017:

AB, "We the People" aren't represented by our government and haven't been for a very long time. Trump was voted in hoping that he 'might' be able to make some changes. But it looks like we can kiss that hope good-bye when he can't even count on his own party to support what "We the People" want. They are afraid of losing something because Trump was going to 'drain the swamp'. But it looks like his own party has become the quicksand that is going to suck him under because they are all a bunch of COWARDS. Just my opinion.
