Wasting rare political opportunity is the transgression

On Tuesday Vice President Pence appeared on the Rush Limbaugh show and cutting through the smooth talk, Rush said to Pence: “Okay, but why then is the president now suggesting a budget shutdown in September or October? If it’s no good now, why is it good then? You guys were sent there to drain the swamp. There’s a clear Trump agenda that just isn’t seeable. It’s not visible in this budget, and some people are getting concerned that there’s more concern for bipartisanship and crossing the aisle, working with Democrats, than there is in draining the swamp and actually peeling away all of the roughage that is preventing actually moving forward here on so many of these issues that affect people domestically.”

Rush is right and we all know it. Time after time these swamp-swimmers manufacture reasons why they can’t accomplish what they promise us when they want our votes. Time after time we handed them power so they can get the job done and they do little to nothing, pass a few window-dressing bills and then tell us what a great job they are doing.

We only have limited windows to adopt deep change in government that will seriously limit the Left’s damage whenever its adherents come to power.

What they are doing is blowing the rare chance one gets in politics to affect real change. The same is happening in Austin just not quite as bad.

My deep disapproval of Speaker Straus and those who hand him power comes from my understanding that over time, we get few chances to enact meaningful, long-lasting, institutional change. Eventually the other party, or another philosophy, comes to power and runs wild. We only have limited windows to adopt deep change in government that will seriously limit the Left’s damage whenever its adherents come to power.

Blowing the chance to save your country or state is not a forgivable offence.

What do you think?...
