A message from Lefty G and Righty V
2017 has finally come to a close. What a year it was! Some sigh in relief, others revel in its glory.
Regardless, Politics 2017 was a transition year from a sense of normalcy under President Obama to a forced adaptation to a New White House, a new President Trump and a whole new political battlefield with new rules of engagement.
The year started with a defeated Democratic Caucus, and a over confident GOP camp, then what came next can only be described as mayhem.
Racial tensions were heightened, and twitter became a battlefield for political propaganda.
Sexual harassment allegations, resignations and election upsets swept the nation as the year went on.
America seems to have been taken off guard but began to find its footing as 2017 Politics came to a close and ended with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passage.
Perhaps Politics 2018, will shake off the hurt feelings and shock and awe that Politics 2016 forced onto Politics 2017.
Perhaps we will begin to see a resemblance of Presidential and Congressional normality where rhetoric on all sides is toned down and a spirit of cooperation can begin to emerge in this divisive political age.
Or perhaps, the situation will further erode, with both sides cementing their positions with political sabotage at the core of campaign strategy as mid-term elections on the hill approach.
Whatever Politics 2018 holds, we will be ready to continue to bring a non-partisan approach to presenting the issues.
From all of us at The Lefty Righty Show, we would like to thank everyone whom supported our start-up project this year, and those who believe that a fair representation of both sides of an issue based on fact not propaganda should be how a society engages the issues of their day.
Stay tuned for a much beefed up blog in Politics 2018.
May the New Year bring you peace and prosperity.
