If the Republicans don't stop emaciating programs that benefit the health and well being of our citizens, there will be nothing much left to defend. Strength come more from more than weaponry. Having knowledgeable, healthy, and skilled people for instance. I appreciate all that the Democrats are trying to do to stand up for the American people, but until some Republicans come to their senses and find their courage there is not much to do. Just know that November 2018 is fast approaching. People will remember. May the tides turn back towards sanity. May the lying President be impeached by well before then.
