Is Washington, DC A Safe Space To Govern?

I can feel it in the tepid, sticky air.

I sense it in the formerly robust discussions that have long since gone silent.

I can smell it when I watch White House press briefings on YouTube.

And it’s obviously all over Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere online.

We have entered a new civil war.

The “resistance” is not just a movement in name.

There are people, very extreme, and very opposed to President Trump.

Their aim is not to question him.

They want to block him at every turn.

They want him out of office.

Preferably, now.

They will use false accusations of collusion with Russia.

They will oppose legislation they would normally support.

They will weaponize the media to create a firestorm where none really exists.

And they are ruthless.

A Nation watches as the President we elected, lawfully, seems helpless in the face of open sedition.

I watch with fear, trying to keep my faith, as the democracy I love is at risk.
