President Trump declared "almost a complete victory" after learning of the results of the midterm elections. However, this is another fabrication used to bolster his ego and security. This isn’t a victory because the Democrats took control of the U.S. House of Representatives and won the governorships of the key states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Unfortunately, the Democrats are ready to institute wasteful investigations of the Trump administration instead of working on bipartisan programs beneficial to our country. This could backfire on them in future elections.

Our politicians are puppets who follow the Republican or Democratic lines established by their parties. There is no individual thinking. It’s all about group thinking and party politics, and this is why there’s gridlock and a lack of accomplishment in Washington, D.C. Republicans and Democrats behave like lemming groups.

Note: I’ve been voting as a Conservative Independent for almost the past 60 years and I’ll continue to do so.
