A Tale Of Two Parties

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”

The State of the Union and the Democrats’ response to it was a study in contrasts, which you would expect from two opposing political parties. But unlike years past, this year wasn’t about differing views of where we should go as a country, it was more a chasm between opinions of who we are as a country.

President Donald Trump delivered. His speech, while long, didn’t feel long. It was peppered with proposals, as you’d expect from any State of the Union Address. But was also full of celebrations of America and Americans. It was a rallying cry for American exceptionalism.

The reaction of Democrats to it was shocking. You’d expect the opposing party to disagree and disapprove of certain policy proposals – no one expected them to applaud a wall on the southern border, for example – but many Democrats, led by media celebrity Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, refused to applaud the idea of a government-led push to eradicate AIDS in 10 years. Seriously.

When the President talked about ending the scourge of human trafficking and the smuggling of narcotics by drug cartels, Democrats weren’t interested. Do they support human and drug smuggling? Probably not, but I can’t say for sure because they oppose measures to fight them.
