The saying is that politics are your morals in action.Take a look at the politics of the Republican party. They are a reactionary and nihilist organization. They want to stop progress and destroy what has been built. It is interesting that they can ignore anything in the pursuit of power.

Our elected federal representatives have signed on completely to the Trump agenda. A war criminal alleged to have committed crimes like shooting a 5-year-old girl in the stomach was pardoned.

As we watch Gov. Mike Dunleavy attempt to bring the state of Alaska to its knees, think of what they are doing. Once the Republicans are done, it will take years to fix their damage. If you don’t believe me, look at the state of Kansas.
