Hope and Change

After the Democrats suffered sweeping election losses at the federal, state and local level across the country in the midterm elections in 2010 and 2014, the promise of ‘hope and change’ finally arrived in 2016 as the Republicans continued to make gains across the country, taking control of the U.S. Congress and the Presidency in the process. While some Democrats may see no hope,  commonsense tells me that the vast majority of Americans who represent the  working-class backbone of the nation, including a lot of life-long democrats, are very hopeful that things will improve under Republican leadership.

Commonsense tells me that if there is not clear evidence of such improvement soon, the voters will again exercise their power to block  unwise  policies  of the party in power like they did is 2010  when the Democrats  overreached  by enacting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act without a single supporting Republican vote.  Commonsense also tells me that the political nonsense will soon stop as a long overdue return to bipartisan governance takes hold over the next eight years  when elected officials at last come to realize  that the voters will not tolerate anything less anymore.

Better Days are coming to America.
