An Immodest Proposal: Trump Rallies At GOP Offices

There is much to be said about the March 20 Congressional hearings starring James Comey. While the Dems used the opportunity to coordinate their partisan talking points, the more numerous GOP members left a lot of questions unasked. Gowdy, Nunes and Stefanik had shining moments but the other Republicans wasted our time.

The Republican Congress seems to have no vigor or urgency to defend Donald Trump from the Washington establishment. I don't give a damn what district they come from, they were not sent to Washington to play footsie with Maxine and Adam. It is time that they either support this administration or face a primary challenge in 2018.

On March 4 of this year, pro-Trump marches were held throughout the country. It confirmed something the opposition does not like to admit. Donald Trump faces little, if any, voter remorse. He is making an effort to do everything he promised. He seems to be gaining popularity for keeping his promises.

While the March 4 events were well-attended, they seem to have missed what should have been their target audience. The rallies should take place outside the offices of GOP Senators and Congressmen. Skip the Dem offices. We will never win with those people. Instead, try to imagine a Saturday where rallies take place outside of 241 Congressional offices and 52 Senate offices. Maybe then, the GOP could reacquaint itself with its base.

This proposal has the added benefit of allowing me to stay in my easy chair and watch the events on TV. I would love to attend such a rally but I have a Dem Congresswoman, two Dem Senators and the nearest GOP rep is hundreds of miles away. That makes this immodest proposal all the more appealing. March forth once again!
