My response to the deluge of unwarranted and questionable negativity levied against the present administration and the present day Democratic ideology, might understandably invite the misconception that I am an irrevocably hard core Democratic pundit.
My prime allegiance is dedicated to that of being an American and what being an American should be and mean to the collective citizenry of this nation. I pledge no blind allegiance to any terminology that refers to any specific political entity. The extreme exception I take to those whose allegiance is dedicated more to party than it is to nation, is subject to reconsideration if I can be convinced where it is that I am amiss in my thinking.
At 80-plus years of age I have had plenty of occasions to observe the venomous contortions of the political fray from the vantage point of an unbiased sideline. Lately these observations have sponsored grave concerns as to what a once viable Republican party has now evolved into. When in the process of a Republican primary campaign, Grover Norquist, a corporate lobbyist, backed by the monetary might of all the corporate and special interest groups, comes on national TV and in plain English proclaims that a Republican candidate for any political office that does not sign his no tax pledge and does not intend to legislate only in the best interest of their financial campaign benefactors, will not prevail in their bid to become the Republicans candidate.
More consequential and disturbing than that, is his contention that the only credential that a future Republican President would have to possess would the ability to wield a pen to sign the bills that would be presented to him by a handpicked Republican Congress. Consequently it seems as though a hierarchy of a Republican party that is dedicated only to the best interests of the corporate and special interest groups, would be leaving the mainstream Republican electorate floundering in a sea of disfranchised uncertainty.
