Solutions to Bad Governance: Whattaya Mean it Doesn’t Happen All At Once!

Insert face-palm.

Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office have come to a close and the shouters are shouting, the media is ranting, and the haters aren’t haters anymore. They are offenders. One step from felons.

I am not a Trump supporter. I think he has strung us along much like the last dozen Presidents. I was reluctantly thrilled when he began issuing executive orders to dismantle the Obama debacle some folks like to call a Presidency. But over the last 100 days all I’ve seen is more and more selling out (NATO), bowing to the establishment (CFR members in his cabinet), reneging on campaign promises (Obamacare ain’t so bad), and focusing on either arbitrary matters, or making half-ass (A.K.A. Republican) attempts at reforming legislation.

But hey you still have your believers. People who want change but are so clueless politically that they do all harm, and no good. The people who show up to town halls to heckle and boo their representatives, threaten them with violence, stalk them on social media, and send death threats. They who scare the politician’s families into getting their own security details. Shame on you.

Vitriol, violence, heckling, shouting, rioting and burning, and name-calling are not how things get done. Those things push your candidates into their cliques so they can hide behind their security and become ever more deafened to your demands.

That’s not how we do things in America.

This does not make you governable.

If you feel like things are not being done it is because government takes time. Legislation takes time. Laws take time. Regulation takes time. President John F. Kennedy is quoted as saying “All this [the New Frontier’s agenda] will not be finished in the first hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days, nor in the life of this administration, nor perhaps in our lifetime on this planet.”

A.) The system requires objectivity and professionalism to be efficient

B.) Representatives will only be reached by concern of the voter, and support of the citizens

C.) Government takes time . . . a lot more time than you estimate

These representatives you are yelling at; they are doing their jobs. Just because it’s not happening on your timetable does not mean change is not happening. Go back home and yell at your televisions, because you clearly do not understand the few facts I have put into this post.
