Chuck's Blog: Do People Actually Love Hating Trump?

CLEVELAND, OH - JULY 21:  Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gives two thumbs up to the crowd during the evening session on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received the number of votes needed to secure the party's nomination. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Cleveland, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Republican National Convention kicked off on July 18.

This week we saw more protests, locally and nationally, by angry citizens demanding town hall meetings with their elected representatives. For the record, I believe:  1) The angry folks have every right to do so.  2) Elected officials should be responsive to the people they represent.  3) Politicians are not being total weasels (for a change) when they refuse to engage in these types of open forums in this current political climate.  

That fact is, many (not all) of the folks demanding an audience really have no desire for a sincere dialogue about government policy and the challenges we face.  Some want to just continue their hissy fit spawned by the Trump victory on election night. Others want to intimidate and humiliate the lawmakers as part of "the resistance."  A few may be paid, many are organized by special interest groups and others are just concerned citizens.  Still others, I suspect, are really enjoying the ride. They're making new pals, knitting pink hats and drawing colorful signs, going out for chai tea with soy milk afterwards and patting each other on the back, convinced that their intellectual superiority will lead America "out of the darkness."   

I'm saddened that so many will not give this administration a chance.  But, I do find it refreshing that we are not steeped, like a Chai Latte, in apathy.  - Chuck
