When Barack Obama was elected president of the United States, many were overjoyed. However, many were outraged and from that anger emerged the Tea Party. Republicans were livid and began to devise a plan to discredit and obstruct our president. It was so overt; the American people began to take notice and understand the Republicans’ plan to impede the president at every juncture. What happened were high approval ratings for our president and an obvious absentee, do-nothing Congress.
It is time to elect a woman as the next president of the United States. We know the Republican Party will go to any length to discredit Hillary Clinton before the next presidential election, but we are smarter today and we understand the Republicans’ game. Republicans are frightened because Mrs. Clinton has earned the respect of the American people, her peers, and world leaders.
The Republican base is rapidly dissolving; their ideology is cast in concrete and cannot be altered. They will try to keep Democrats like blacks, Hispanics, other immigrants and college students from voting, but they will fail. They will try to gerrymander presidential elections as they have in midterm elections. If all elections were on a popular vote, there would be no Republican Party; the Republican Party died with the creation of the Tea Party. The majority of the population does not trust the Republican Party or the Tea Party. Move over, fellas!
