I Worry For the Future of America


I Worry For the Future of America
Al Ritter 

I have been patiently waiting for leader to emerge from the 17 possible candidates in the Republican Party in the Presidential Run, but something is getting in the way. I understand that the electorate’s anger is based primarily with the Republican leadership in the House and Senate.  

What I feel we are experiencing right now is the venting of that anger, but please understand that whoever sits in the seat at the Whitehouse can NOT further an agenda without fixing the leadership process at the same time! 

The anger and hostile nature of what exists in the Republican Party right now is a symptom and not a cure! 
 
Even the most intelligent Trump supporter right now knows that the “Donald” has no real strategy on individual issues. “Forcing Mexico” to pay for a wall has no logical basis……….and neither does……”we’ll just go over to the middle-east and “take their oil.” Sure it vents our combined anger but it has no basis of logic or strategy. 

We want to see a bully succeed because playing by the rules so far hasn’t worked, and how better could it be than to hire a bully to push someone else around for a change! 

The real solution is to take common sense steps to secure our future by returning our country. Let’s remove the people in the Congress and Senate that ignored our message in the midterm elections. Let’s force those in leadership positions to include the ideals of the Tea Party in policy decisions. Let’s remove those people in office that seek to mold the government into one big party.  

There are distinct differences in each party but John Boehner and Mitch McConnell seemed bonded in an unholy alliance to meld those two parties together. It should be the aim of the Republican Party to severe that bond. The office of the President means little if the two leaders of Congress seek to destroy him. So far Boehner and McConnell have shown more support for Barack Obama that ANY Republican candidate running, and that HAS to be changed. We can change this in one of two ways, by either internal selection (through elections for the leadership within those bodies,) or direct election to remove the offending politicians (by the people.) 

It has become increasingly clear by obvious retribution tactics that the first choice has become increasingly difficult to accomplish, maybe the only way left is to rid ourselves of these obstructive tyrants by the vote of the people. 

We need to stop feeding the anger in our primary election, we need to find the real candidate with the clear cut strategy we agree with and push them into prominence, not a businessman with anger issues. Until we do so the Republican will appear no different than the Democratic Party of uninformed voters.

Rhetoric is more important to the 'lemming-like' electorate than actual policy. The Donald will fade when he is jeopardy of tarnishing his brand, but until then, his rhetoric is seemingly carrying him and keeping him in the limelight. IMHO, he is an untrustworthy, self centered piece of garbage, that has captured the anger of the aforementioned electorate...and until the rest of the field recognizes this and sees beyond the 'anger' and addresses what obviously is keeping him relevant this show will go on.
Bottomline, the remaining candidates MUST address the issues brought forth by this jackass and force him to address policy with real solutions not the tabloid headline snippet...

It's been a long time since you have written something like this based solely on opinion. I like it. In my own little humble opinion I think somewhere in the field of 17 there is a solution to the problems you list. Someone who will put America's needs ahead of party and have the ability to communicate that to the general public. I have a couple of opinions on who that or those few may be but that is for me to keep to myself right now.

I guess all these Republicans stepping up to run think they can do better than Obama, but they all need to form a solution and stop battling among themselves. I am so afraid we are handing the election over to the Democrat's again...
