The United States is evolving into a one-party country; that being Republican with support from independents and pro-Trump Democrats. The once proud party that cared for and supported the working middle-class, union workers and minorities, has decimated long-standing traditions and plunged itself into a sewer of antipathy and vulgarity. They sail merrily and rudderless toward the insanity of the ultra-left, socialism and political correctness.

It has become a party of destruction, hypocrisy, hate and obstruction. There is no denying that. And there is no end in sight. In a few short months, we will be blessed with the mid-term elections where Republicans will win a super-majority in the Senate. Contributors to the Democrats will be pouring millions of dollars into slimy, snarky attack ads.

All the self-centered, malignantly narcissistic celebrities will return spewing their vile hatred and morbid sophomoric soliloquies. I imagine we will even see our former president and former secretary of state on the stump for the liberals.

None of that mattered in 2016 and certainly will not matter in 2018. To make matters worse, the liberal “virus” appears to have infected a few Republicans who have concluded their egos are more important than their loyalty to the country, the president and our Grand Old Party.

I am comforted however, with the knowledge that “time wounds all heels.”
