The big problem our country faces is a break down in government by the people and for the people. We elect intelligent representatives and expect them to honor our wishes and use their own good common sense. Somehow, when they get to Washington, all is forgotten! The party leaders tell them what to do!
Crossing party lines should not be a consideration. Our representatives should honor and vote our wishes. Example: Healthcare needs change. It is too costly in some states. These states have liberal senators. Not one of them voted for the repeal.
Trump is a business man. Part of his mission is to expose the shortfalls of our present system — i.e. the swamp. His tweets and rallies (with subsequent TV coverage) somehow bypass the media, but these are the things that cannot be slanted. Remember, anybody can criticize.
