Honest president needed to restore the Union

The State of the Union is, we have no Union.

I am a Veteran, as conservative as they come and consider myself a patriot, but I am not a blind follower of any party or politician.

This is my take on fools on both sides occupying space in Washington, D.C.

Trump and Schumer are nothing but New York City, street corner B.S. artists. The only difference is they are both rich and spoiled. I was in the U.S. Army with a bunch of them from Brooklyn and Queens. They are born and raised to be loud mouths and slinging insults to one another, engaging their tongues before their brains.

We have Nancy Pelosi, who qualifies in my neck of the woods, to  be "a dizzy broad," rich and pretending to be for the poor, at the same time, with her husband, successfully lobbying to reduce the minimum wage from $7 to $4 in a U.S. Territory where they own processing plants.
Mitch McConnell, nothing but a "Ky. Backwoods, Snuffy Smith." Must I continue?

We have a record bunch of women winning House and Senate races this year. Are they going to "cut the pants off" these impostors or become greedy and join them and have your names carved on a monument marking the end of the greatest country in history?

In my opinion, we have not had an honest man in the White House since Harry Truman. "If you want a friend in Washington, D.C., you better get you a good dog!" He drove himself and Bess back to Missouri with no Secret Service protection, received a retirement of some $35,000, and said, "The office of President belongs to the people and is not for sale!" (Clinton pardons biggest tax cheat in U.S. History).

Some of my friends may drop dead when I say, give us another true American statesman like Truman and I may vote for a Democrat. I'm not worried for their health right now.
