It’s with such sadness that I watched yesterday’s madness unfold… As we witnessed the smashing of windows and the storming of Capitol Hill, we saw a country lacking leadership.
This was so wrong… This is America, a country we all love. And, a peaceful transition of power is critical to everyone’s future.
We are a nation that respects the law. We do not storm buildings.
What happened yesterday afternoon is a tragedy that will reshape the Republican Party in many ways for years to come. It will make it harder for conservative Americans to defend their values because these memories will be forever etched into the minds of their opponents.
The solution to our divisions in society right now… the way to truly make us heal… is to focus inward on policies that will create better opportunities for every American. America needs to get back to her roots. Our roots come from our amazing, gifted, kind, hard-working entrepreneurial people.
You’ve heard me say it before and I’ll say it again… We are only as strong as our middle class. The middle class is the engine of the American economy. Without a strong base of earners, we are left with an increasingly Banana Republic-style economy – a lot on top, a lot on the bottom, and just a few in between.
Many blame this current divided America on a polarizing President Trump. He certainly hasn’t helped… Nonetheless, there is blame that should be placed on our political institutions and the establishment class of both sides.
