The scorched-earth strategy being played out daily makes me wonder &mdash;will Donald Trump be the last Republican president and Barack Obama the last Democrat president?<br />\n I wonder if we&rsquo;ve reached the point where voter disgust with both parties will result in their demise. What do you think? &mdash; Clean Slate in PA<br />\n Dear Clean:<br />\n Oh, if only your notion would come to fruition. Voter disgust is one area where Republican voters and Democrat voters both agree. Unfortunately, they both agree with the following declaration: &ldquo;I&rsquo;m disgusted with my party but I&rsquo;m even more disgusted with the other party so I&rsquo;ll continue to vote for my party.&rdquo; This circular statement leaves Americans with the ugliness we have today in Washington.<br />\n Call me na&iuml;ve, but I still believe rank and file Americans of both parties have more in common than differences. I believe most Americans want a strong, clean, safe and free country with reasonable taxes and affordable health care and education. The big question is how do we pay for it and how large a role should government play in our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. I also believe if it weren&rsquo;t for the establishment class in Washington which includes both Republicans and Democrats, our country would be far less divided and far more would be accomplished.<br />\n I have served on numerous nonprofit boards and public service organizations over the years never knowing anybody&rsquo;s political bent. Yet we were able to work together toward a common goal, help those less fortunate,and stay under budget at the same time. Washington could learn a thing or two from those civic and philanthropic organizations that cover the American landscape.<br />\n President Trump did a fantastic job of tapping into that same can do American spirit during the presidential campaign but unfortunately, he hasn&rsquo;t been able to capitalize because of the aforementioned scorched-earth policy of most D.C. politicians. It&rsquo;s obvious the alligators, snakes and snapping turtles living in the swamp don&rsquo;t want President Trump to Make America Great Again. Whether it&rsquo;s for power, vanity or financial enhancement, these creatures like inhabiting the rotten logs of the D.C. swamp.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n The Demo-rats are rolling out a new slogan because they believe they have a messaging problem. Their new slogan is &ldquo;A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.&rdquo; Don&rsquo;t they realize they don&rsquo;t have a slogan problem, they have a policy problem? &mdash; Stating the Obvious in South Dakota<br />\n Dear Stating: &nbsp;<br />\n Yes, better as in better get me a Monster Energy drink because that new slogan is putting me to sleep.&nbsp; After learning that the DNC is millions of dollars in debt, it appears Democrats enlisted Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi&rsquo;s grandkids to come up with a slogan gratis. Also, it&rsquo;s longer than the attention span of your typical millennial Democrat voter who only supported Barack Obama because of the bumper sticker &ldquo;Hope and Change.&rdquo; Being the humanitarian guy I am, I&rsquo;ll help the Democrats with a new slogan that easily fits on the bumper of a Prius &mdash; Democrats: Better BS.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Hillary Clinton announced the title of her new book and it perfectly describes how clueless and in denial she remains. It&rsquo;s titled &ldquo;What Happened.&rdquo; Supposedly she is going to tell us why she lost by blaming Russia and James Comey. I&rsquo;m so tired of this woman and her lame excuses. Do you think anybody will buy this piece of junk, much less read it? &mdash; She Ain&rsquo;t No Shakespeare<br />\n Dear Ain&rsquo;t:<br />\n As for buyers, I&rsquo;m sure many of Hillary&rsquo;s liberal sycophants will support their feminist goddess by purchasing a copy. But if the pre-release publicity is accurate in which the publisher tells of Hillary pointing her finger everywhere but the mirror &mdash; again, then I don&rsquo;t think even her most ardent supporters will crack open this waste of shelf space. Sounds like Hillary is trying to rewrite history, but this book will simply make her sound even more pathetic.<br />\n Overall, is the goal of Mrs. Bill Clinton&rsquo;s book to analyze what actually happened, or like a dazed and confused person who just got hit by a bus, ask &ldquo;What happened?&rdquo;</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
