Starting the New Year with the government closed for business sign up

Its the first day of 2019 and 11 days into a partial government shutdown, a third in as many months that has nearly a half million employees furloughed and just as many working without pay until the exercise in checks and balances is resolved. Pundits are quick to say that there is no end in sight for solution but someone on either side needs to imagine how bring the parties to the table and open the government.

Happy New Year!!

Welcome to 2017, the New Year is starting out a lot differently than I would have imagined just three months ago. A former reality TV star and alleged billionaire will become the next President of the United States of America. Protests, proclamations of leaving the country and even efforts to thwart the electoral college from officially electing Donald Trump have made headlines in the days and weeks since the election that felt more like a punch in the gut to more than half the country.  

Trump will forever be known as the only candidate in American history to survive the most scandals, most which would have derailed any other candidate's political aspirations. When he entered the race it was all giggles, no one took it seriously, but nearly two years later, no one is laughing now, except for the President-Elect, he's laughing all the way to the White House.

"So what happened?", is pretty much the question a lot of people are wanting to know. The answer is simple. The Republicans choose to win the election no matter if that win would do harm to the country. Instead of letting the Trump-Pence campaign loose, the majority of the party who admittedly do not condone Trumps controversial comments and attitudes towards the opposite gender voted for him anyway because he backed the policies that they want to see implemented.

Now Trump's praise for Russia's president, even after the intelligence community has implicated the country in hacking the DNC and meddling in the election is about to become a speed bump in the road to the White House. It appears as if Congress may decide to investigate Russia's involvement.

No one can predict what will happen with this administration; however I am hopeful that our elected representative can find common ground and do the work the people need them to do,
