By: Chris Hanrahan Monday March 18, 2019 WASHINGTON STATE – Trump’s name will not appear on 2020 Ballot until he “releases his taxes”. The erratic and irresponsible policies of WA have struck again, and have the support of 80% of WA constituents who want to “save the country” through the policies of the left. The state majority (Jay Inslee + Washington State Legislature) have just overstepped in a major & unprecedented way on the States Rights issue of who is on the 2020 Ballot for President of The United States. The new Washington State law would make it impossible for President Donald Trump to be listed amongst the presidential candidates. My opinion on this policy move, which would put the “Climate Concerned Inslee” on the ballot” but not the “America Saving Trump”, is that it represents an extreme overreach and speaks to larger problems of authority. In the State of WA, where this author was born and raised, I have seen risks forming in politics for quite some time. It is insightful to walk down any street in Seattle, and witness how the policy choices being made (drinking straw bans, the deployment of heroin safe injection sites) are responsible for the self-serving Democrat leaders of the state. But not all who call the Sanctuary City are benefitted by the way the climate and drug challenges are being met. Part of the challenge is, the State of Washington is addicted to identity politics.

 [#ChooseGreatness] A Challenge for Democrats & Republicans – “Victory is Winning for our Country” Headline – Democrats Still Selective in all areas of Applause.   For example: when Trump proclaimed “Ladies and Gentlemen, the State of our Union is Strong”, the [Reaction from the Republicans]was applause (and a “USA, USA, USA” Chant. The [Reaction from the Democrats]was no standing or applause.  They all did their best Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer impressions and held it with a practiced stoicism that we have all learned to know and love. There is a new opportunity in American politics if only we have the courage to seize it. “Tonight, I ask you to Choose Greatness” –Donald J. Trump(2019 SOTU Address) “Trump is incompetent” –Chuck Schumer(February 5, 2019) (Majority Leader of the Senate Mitch McConnellresponded by suggesting that maybe “Chuck isn’t paying close enough attention.”)  SOTU 2019: A Presidential Moment  So with whom do you agree?  Is Donald Trump trying to make America Great or is he incompetent? There are clearly strong differences in opinion and there’s even a chance to form your own unique opinion.  If any of that is true – share them here in the comments.  Some of the things people debate about lead to moments of #unity and shared understanding.  Yet it’s obvious there is still division. Let’s set the table, using a counterexample of the #ChooseGreatness motto. Lots of Congresspeople are saying and doing things that aren’t #Great.  It’s time to call that out.  So the operative hashtags will be #Great #NotGreat #ChooseGreatness #FakeNews #FactsMatter It’s time toRead More →
