A Nebraska Democratic Party volunteer leader has been dismissed for saying he was glad House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R.-La) got shot and “wished he were dead.” Phil Montag was secretly taped, and refuted the tape, saying it had been edited, and was an attempt to blackmail him into publicly supporting Chelsey Gentry-Tipton, the Black Caucus chairwoman. Tipton was also present at the time of the taping.
The in-party fighting of both Republicans and Democrats needs to stop, and cross-party cooperation needs to grow. The word “partisan” in relating to a specific party should become obsolete and rarely used, and “bi-partisan” should become the catch-phrase for everything coming out of Washington, D.C. as well as every state capital in the union. When people start working for the good of others and not only for themselves, things get better.
When the United States Congress in it’s entirety actually starts working for the good of the people, this country will get better. When universities turn away from political correctness and return to sound education principles and responsible ethical and moral standards for students, this country will get better.
The first thing needed is to return to the moral concepts and religious principles of the Founding Fathers.
The Constitution wasn’t written by a bunch of lawyers. It was written by common men, many of them pastors and teachers, who believed in what this country could become, and were willing to give up everything to see it happen.
We must do the same.
Our lives and our country depend on it.
