HILLARY CLINTON TOLD CNN Oct. 9, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” Was that meant to unite or divide us?

One has to wonder if Clinton was talking about President Donald Trump and the Republican Party or if she was chastising her own radical Democratic Party members for their shameful behavior in recent Congressional hearings.

In either case, the majority of Americans are getting tired of both. Isn’t it time, after two years, for Democrats to accept the results of the 2016 Presidential Election and the recent confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court; to spare the country of any more senseless and wasteful distractions?

Democrats want us to believe Americans approve of investigations that are unable to find anything wrong, but are unwilling to stop until they do find something. They also like making accusations that can be neither proved nor disproved.

Don’t you believe moderate Democrats and Republicans are tired of the constant resistance, disruptions and orchestrated protests staged by left-wing Democrats that are meant to intimidate anyone that dares to think differently?

Resentful Democrats have promised their hard-core followers they will disrupt the government if they regain control of the House of Representatives and/or the U.S. Senate. Is that what we want?

The trouble with the anti-Trump resistance is the liberal alternative thinking is offered and presented by unreasonable and unacceptable proposals. Even moderate Democrats are wary of the far-left agenda.

Here’s a tip. Contentious in-your-face confrontations are not a recipe for conflict resolution and problem solving. This tactic almost always does more harm than good.

It’s up to swing voters if they want more endless investigations. California Rep. Maxine Waters has promised to begin impeachment of Trump. New York Rep. Jerry Nadler has pledged to reopen investigations against Kavanaugh if Democrats win the House majority.

Democrats are hoping this tough rhetoric will stoke misguided rage among their core support groups, but many moderates believe these continued attacks on democracy will backfire on them as it could mobilize fed-up conservative Republican voters.

The fact is, Tuesday, Nov. 6 is a special day. It’s midterm election day in America. Voters will elect 435 seats in the House, 35 seats in the Senate and 36 of 50 state governors. There also are thousands of state government races to be decided.

The New York Times said 221 million of your fellow citizens are of voting age, but officials predict that just 120 million will exercise their voting rights, about 55%, for a host of reasons. Some blame gerrymandering and others said they are simply sick of political discourse.

This election year is offering a battle over control of Congress. Control of the House and Senate are in play. As is often said “Every vote counts” and rarely have the battle lines been as fierce as they are this year.

The political wars have become bitter. That is not a good omen. Each side has vowed to exact its retribution should they keep or gain control in Congress. This angst will likely lead to an escalation of the discourse.

No matter what happens Nov. 6, the race for the White House in 2020 will begin Nov. 7 and the rancor between the parties will make the tone nasty.

Americans who were horrified by the election of Trump have not rectified the fact that, by the well-informed lights of millions of their fellow citizens, our existing leaders of both parties have been nothing to write home about. It is not like the current officeholders are any high-quality paragons of brilliance.

It’s a pox on both sides of the aisle. Democrats would be wise to offer concessions to the moderate Republicans in exchange for their votes. If Republicans manage to keep control, they should work with their moderate Democrat friends in an effort to unite and become the majority.

Both sides need to do whatever they can to temper the animosity in Congress, and to get the mainstream media and the cultural elite to balance their reporting and de-escalate the hateful rhetoric.

While most Americans do not approve of Trump’s crude tweets and unpresidential outbursts, they dislike even more the failure of Democrats to acknowledge the positive things being accomplished by the Republican Party and the despicable behavior of Democrats in Congress whose only goal is to disrupt, resist and oppose.

Democrats opposed Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court in retaliation for the Republicans denying Merrick Garland (a Barack Obama nominee) a hearing in 2016.

If Democrats want to have any chance of winning the White House in 2020, they should stop appeasing the far left liberals of their party. They should stop living in the past and trying to overturn the 2016 election. Forget impeachment talk.

Democrats should work to win back the working middle-class voters they took for granted in 2016. Stop pandering to their angry, radical base and work to win over the marginal Trump supporters who have grown tired of his lies and exaggerations.

It would go against their ideology, but Democrats should ratchet down their disruptive, violent marching and protesting which turn potentially winnable issues into losing causes.
