Our Congress, In Absentia

The Constitution of the United States, Article 1, Section 8 states:

“The Congress shall have power…” 

“To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations…”

“To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…”

“To declare War…”

“To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”   

Seems fairly clear cut.  Even short of impeachment, the Congress has power to control and contain the presidency.  Why is the Republican majority in this current Congress failing to carry out its sworn constitutional duties?    There are no two sides to this question.  They swore an oath to the country.    They cannot continue to allow Donald J. Trump, to rule the nation by fiat.  It is an abdication of their sworn duty and a threat to the Republic.

Please, go to the polls and vote out these dangerous and negligent Republican legislators in the midterms.   They, as much as Trump, are at fault for our current governmental chaos.
