    Who Represents Me?

    16 months ago

    As a regular American who is moderate most areas, but either left or right on others, I find myself increasingly alienated from and disgusted with both parties. It’s amazing to see the childish behavior in Washington. Democrats, Republicans – get something done!

    Yes, we really do have two simultaneous crises occurring right now. One, of course, is the dysfunction of our immigration policies. The bigger crisis is that of leadership or lack thereof. Who will step up and guide us out of this human tragedy once and for all?

    Within days of regaining control of The House, the Democrats are already showing they are unprepared to govern. Opportunities for constructive change have already been lost. Here are just a few.

    Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination and confirmation process to the Supreme Court puts a spotlight on the vindictiveness and incompetence of both political parties. This endless backbiting and political grandstanding continue to erode our confidence in the institutions our nation relies so heavily upon.

    To start off, America was faced with a choice of two terrible candidates in November 2016. The Democrats has already pre-determined that Hillary would be no matter their candidate what Bernie Sanders did.

    There are many questions and criticisms of President Trump's decisions and policies. We wonder what motivates him and how these policies will affect the nation in the near and distant future. Let's look at them one at a time.

    I’ve written a letter to the Albuquerque Journal, my local paper, in an attempt to bring to light some of the unmentioned problems facing our teachers all year every year. Bear in mind that this is only a partial list. Our state’s largest paper has a major tilt to the right politically

    The Republicans and Democrats are failing the nation. Perhaps now is the time for a 3rd Party to get their attention.

    As disheartening as it has been to watch the unfolding of the current immigration mess, it is equally shocking to observe the Democrats fumbling around to devise a response.

    The implications of the pending Supreme Court case concerning the 1st Amendment and religious freedom of individuals needs to be carefully monitored.
