Yesterday, a new President was sworn into office.  But it wasn’t without, well, issues…

Some 60 Democrats boycotted the Inauguration of the 45th President.  Protestors became unruly and trashed several businesses while others blocked access to the event.  And “entertainers” attacked the President’s youngest son via the media.

From the Party and it’s followers that supposedly preaches & teaches tolerance, acceptance, and anti-bullying, don’t you find this just a tad hypocritical?  Those that have placed themselves on the moral high ground have come up extremely short when compared to the reactions of the opposition from the Inauguration ceremonies of four and eight years ago.  But then again, what do you expect from those who state that they stand for one thing, do the complete opposite, and are completely oblivious to their hypocrisy?

Regardless, the Inauguration of President Trump could not have come soon enough.  The direction of the country from sliding into the dustbin of history should be reversed if even part of President Trump’s Inauguration speech comes true.  But it’s not going to happen without its challenges.

President Trump (oh how I’m going to love typing that!) has two years before the next election cycle to show progress on his campaign promises.  The Senate will be in play as there is a bare majority of Republicans in that Congressional house.  If the Democrats show complete obstructionism, that could backfire on them.  If they show “reasonable” bipartisanship, then they may pick up some seats in Congress, and in the critical Senate.  But let’s consider the following that has occurred under the previous President (from an email that has been making the rounds):

  • Democrats lost the House and ceded the majority of governorships in 2010, held the Senate in 2012 with Obama’s re-election, then lost control of the Senate in 2014 and control of the White House this year. All told, Democrats have shed 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 12 governorships.
  • Obama has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Sadly, every generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why they should never actually put liberals in charge. Obama is bringing home the lesson very well: Liberals tax, borrow and spend. Liberals won’t bring themselves to protect America. Liberals want to take over the economy. Liberals think they know what is best for everyone. Liberals are not happy until they are running and ruining YOUR life.
  • Obama has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since Reagan. In one year, he has rejuvenated the Conservative Movement and brought out to the streets millions of freedom loving Americans. Name one other time when you saw your friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!

I can only hope that the Progressive Left continue to demand their safe spaces, diaper pins, and bad behavior – it will serve as a reminder to all decent Americans that the adults need to be in charge, not a bunch of temper-tantrum throwing ill mannered adolescents looking for their next handout fix.

We The People need to remember what the politicians, especially the Progressive Liberal Democrats, have done to this country.  We must hold the President, Congress, and the Judiciary accountable for their actions.  We must also hold our State and Local government officials accountable as well – we cannot continue to elect politicians and then place our attention on autopilot.

Be well, my Friends.
