In the United States we generally have a two party system. Yes, we have an Independent Party, a Green Party, etc. The Republican and the Democratic Parties are the basic big guys. I am not sure when, but somehow the way this two party system SHOULD work has gotten lost. It no longer represents the citizens of the United States. The powers at be ( the Congress) have lost sight as to who they really represent.
With Trump as our President, the Right ( Republicans), have gone so far to the right they have become unreasonable with everything. It doesn’t matter what. Conservatives wish to control everything we do. Liberals are more to letting people make their own choice. In the Southern states, because of conservative religions, they don’t like gays, the bathroom issue with transgender people is a hot topic. North Carolina for example has lost billions of dollars because of these issues. The NCAA refused to play championship games there. The Supreme Court ruled against them, but now that Donald Trump is the President they are trying to go back on the legislation. Businesses that were planning on opening up in No Carolina did not. No Carolina lost billions of dollars.
The relationship between the two parties is so bad right now that they do not even speak to each other in the Congress and maybe the Senate as well. Obstructionism does nothing for the American People. After all isn’t that what they are elected to do? Yes it is. Our elected officials are so far off the mark, they have no idea how much damage they are doing. I hear everyday on Facebook from people who just want to give Trump a chance. Members of my own family disagree with me. They are from conservative areas of Wyoming. I live in Utah. My state is also very conservative. Where did I get my liberism from? When it comes to being a woman, I want to make my own decisions. I don’t want to have old men tell me what I can and cannot do with my body, my mind, my job. There is a reason that the national government makes rules in our country. The EPA was created in the 70’s because all states did not want to abide by reasonable rules. Our air quality was so bad people in California and New York couldn’t even breathe. Many illnesses of the lungs were popping up. Many corporations were polluting the water and the air. Now the Republicans want to get rid of the EPA because they want to get rid of the regulations that made corporations abide by the rules. Same with Health and Human Services, Dept of Education, etc. This is absurd that we have to go backwards years because President Trumps administration is rolling back regulations. Coal mining is the major earner in Wyoming. It has killed the economy there. Coal is done. We have solar, wind farms and gas. We should be putting money out to retrain these workers. There are other jobs they can do and make even better money. Here in Utah we can’t find enough people to work. Too many jobs especially in tech and not enough workers. Why can’t we agree on what’s best for the workers of America.
Speaking of workers, the Donald has ordered all illegal immigrants out of the country. Did you know 46% of workers are not showing up to work because they are afraid they will be deported. Trump promised families would not be split up, that he would only go after the criminals, that the DACA people would not be harmed. Just one more of his lies. Oh yes, Mexico would pay for the wall. Why would they want a wall. Most Americans don’t want the damn wall. Our agricultural situation is going to be very bad. Fruits and vegetables will rot in the fields because there is no one to pick them. On and on and on.
This post is long enough. You don’t want to hear me go on. See you on my next post.
