Our great country was not built on tearing each other down, but by building each other up. America is the best country on the planet for too many reasons to list, but we are heading down a road of assuring that is not the case. Cancel culture needs to be canceled.
Elected office is not meant to be a career, and we should not allow it to be. Far too often we end up with politicians who have outlived their usefulness, and become liabilities instead of working for the people. Career politicians are ruining our country and the logical solution to this is enacting term limits. Get in, do your job for a couple terms, then go home. It’s that simple.
For too long we have been worrying about everything else instead of what is in front of our faces. America First simply means that we will take care of our business ahead of other interests. This is common sense in most other aspects of our lives but we have allowed our politicians to wander off in any direction they like. District 16 first, then Florida, then the rest of the country. Until we are at a point of success here, everyone else can get lost with their requests.
