A recent Rasmussen poll indicated that Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Democrats surveyed believe that President Trump is guilty of treason. The surveyed participants believe he is in some way working with the Russian government. Incredible as this sounds, talking to local Democrats seems to bear this out.

The belief that the president committed treason is shared by 28% of men and 37% of women. However, there is a significant generation gap: 48% of those under 35 believe he is guilty, a view shared by just 20% of senior citizens. Twenty-six percent (26%) of white voters agree along with 49% of black voters and 50% of Hispanic voters.

The survey also found that 41% of all voters believe the president should be impeached and removed from office. Support for impeachment has held steady ever since the submission of the Mueller report. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Democrats believe he should be impeached while 84% of Republicans reject the idea. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Independent voters’ favor impeachment while 45% are opposed.

These are incredible numbers considering that the Muller report proved that the President did nothing wrong. They point to the meeting between President Trump and Vladimir Putin where Trump tried to establish a warmer relationship between our two countries. Seems like a smart idea as opposed to insulting someone and bringing on another arms race.

One must wonder what is the bases for treason, is it trying to establish a working relationship with a head of state or something more secret? The funny thing about all of this is that the Democrats keep pushing treason where they do everything to slowdown the progress our country is making.

The progress we are making as a nation is truly spectacular with employment numbers reaching every group with good news. How can getting American business up and running help Russia? How can putting blue collar workers back to work help Russia? The whole Treason thing does not make any sense.

Blocking any progress on the Presidents programs does not make any sense either. Allowing our borders to be openly violated and not willing to do anything to correct is Treason as it is destroying our country.

What has made American great is the values we care about but some think we must discard those values to somehow become better people. In the past, a certain number of people came into our country and were assimilated but now the numbers are overwhelming the system.

We are having communities that do not speak English and communities that do not except our system of laws. These are things the Democrats are pushing. Totaling degrading the system that has brought wealth to so many. Let’s make it equal for all by sharing the fruits of the workers labor with those that need it.

Work hard and you will succeed used to be the by words, now it is income inequality. Which those who work hard or have a great idea must give up their rewards to someone who sits around barely working or not working at all. This is what seems like treason, betraying the tried and true American system.

The wealthiest people in this country deserve what they have and when you think about it the people who started with nothing but worked their tail off deserve what they have. It is not taking from someone who earned it, it’s earning it yourself which we all have the opportunity to do. Let’s hope the President can keep those doors open for all.
