Democracy Is Working, Changes Should ResultDemocracy is working, but it didn’t start in Washington. It started here, back home in the states. We have seen a growing grassroots movement seeking change at every level of government — local statehouses, Congress, and now the White House.

Many people are more motivated by big government’s lack of results than their own political ideology.

Donald Trump shares our frustration and he was elected because he is an outsider businessman who is listening to us, not the political elites.

Similarly, I came to the United States Senate, having never sought elected office, to help change the system. From the onset, I saw the dysfunction clearly. Fixing this dysfunction may seem like a long shot, but many believed a Trump presidency was a long shot.

Both political parties allowed the federal government to explode from $2.4 trillion to $3.8 trillion over the last 15 years. Our national debt surpassed $19 trillion earlier this year and will rise to over $30 trillion going forward if we keep spending more money than we have.

Responding to President-elect Donald Trump’s vow to withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership on his first day in office, White House press secretary Josh Earnest acknowledged the chances of the pact being approved by Congress “are not very good.” He called it “a significant missed opportunity for the American people.”

“That’s going to put U.S. businesses and U.S. workers at a disadvantage,” Mr. Earnest said of the deal’s demise.

The president pushed the 12-nation agreement as the biggest economic proposal of his second term.

Mr. Earnest also said it’s likely that Mr. Trump’s “deeply disappointing” action will benefit China.

Trump WON’T pursue case against Clinton
lock-her-upHillary broke the law. And while I understand that this may very well be an olive branch to the Democrats, Trump is in for a rude awakening. There will be no quid pro quo. The Democrats will not play ball with him or give him an easier time or stop the violent rioting or calm their base. Like jihadis, they see kindness and peace offerings as signs of weakness.

I am sure many Trump supporters whose chant, “lock her up!,” is now a rallying cry for government corruption and lawlessness, will be hugely disappointed.
