Is there a Common Ground in American Politics?

Is there a Common Ground in American Politics?

-Guest Contributor: Jesse Saywell

As a child, I had many dreams for my life. At first, I wanted to be a farmer. Then, I thought I’d be a police officer or serve our country in the Navy. I pictured myself a pop singer, a lawyer, a journalist, an actor, and even President of the United States.

Never once did I dream that at twenty-four years of age I’d be a socialist, atheist, progressive who is also writing a piece for a conservative website. Only in America, right?

Now I expect that many of you wanted to stop reading at the word “socialist.” And for those that continued reading, I expect the word “atheist” didn’t do me any favors either. But, for the love of our country, please hear me out.

So, let’s get the monkey out of the room. Yes, I’m a socialist. Not a communist. A socialist. There are places in America where I do not feel safe saying that – and that is wrong. It is wrong because I love this country with all my heart. I love democracy, I support our troops at home and abroad, and I support the constitution of this great country. If you’re a regular reader and supporter of this site, you and I probably disagree about almost every major political, economic, and social issue – but that doesn’t mean that I love America any less. We all diagnose similar problems, I just have a different prescription to solve them – but that’s not what I’m here to talk about this time.

I’m not writing today to convince you to vote for Democrats or to explain the benefits of a socialistic financial system. Unlike many of my liberal friends, I don’t feel the need to educate other adults. I don’t pretend to have all the answers. However, I do know that the attitudes I just mentioned are some of the many reasons that many conservatives and voters in rural areas have angrily turned away from the Democratic Party in recent years. I’m not giving up on finding common ground – and I believe I know who can bring America together again: Donald J. Trump.

Yes, you read that correctly. I believe that the one thing that liberals and conservatives can agree on is that President Trump is dangerous for America. At the risk of sounding overly-dramatic, it’s very possible that the President is guilty of treason. I’m not saying this because he’s a Republican (because let’s face it, he isn’t really a Republican), I’m saying it because there are so many unanswered questions when it comes to the President’s motives and methods. Donald Trump may say that he’s putting America first, but that simply isn’t true. I would hope that Americans who either didn’t vote for him, hesitantly voted for him, or even were full-out “Make America Great Again” hat-wearing supporters should be able to now see this. President Trump serves himself and his own interests, and that’s what makes him dangerous – even more dangerous than we previously thought.

President Trump’s first official White House press conference was used to attack the media, and lie about the size of the crowd at his inauguration. It wasn’t the largest crowd ever – anyone with eyes can see that. More importantly, even if it were true: is that really the first thing you want the President to be discussing in the days after his inauguration?

It should bother every American when Donald Trump calls a federal judge (especially one appointed by George W. Bush) a “so-called judge.” It should bother every American when the President of the United States calls the American media an “enemy of the American People.” I don’t deny that the American media can show serious biases. No matter how you feel about the media, I would hope we could agree that the media is crucial to our functioning democracy. When Senator John McCain stops just short of calling the President a tyrant while defending the media, there is a serious problem. When the President of the United States uses his first official press conference with Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu as an excuse to boast about his electoral victory (and provide false information that could easily be Googled), there is a serious problem. Even a Fox News anchor called the President “crazy” in response to this outlandish press conference. These are dark times indeed when I find myself agreeing with some on Fox News.

This says nothing of the continuing allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It’s no longer an unsubstantiated rumor or conspiracy theory – there’s a lot of smoke billowing out of the White House on this issue. Keep in mind that Russia didn’t intervene in our elections just to get any Republican elected. Russia wanted Donald Trump. Perhaps that’s because he has no party loyalty, or maybe it’s because they have some sort of compromising information about him. Even if there’s no direct collusion between Trump himself and Russia, multiple members of his cabinet did meet with Russian officials and have been less than straightforward about those communications. If proven to be true, the national security implications of this are gravely serious.

I know that many of you likely welcome some of President Trump’s policy proposals. I could argue against these policies for days, and I will – elsewhere. For now, we as Americans need set aside our political differences, and stand together for the good of our country in demanding that Donald Trump address and correct the serious problems in his administration, or step down. I recognize that Democrats have a much better chance of taking back the White House if Donald Trump and his 40% approval rating continues to serve as President, but I value the safety of all Americans more than I value my political agenda. I’m asking you to do the same. Country before party. Americans need to find a common ground before Trump… I don’t want to finish that sentence.
