Do you remember the time when the two political parities could disagree but still work toward a common goal of a better country?
Obviously now it is a fight to the death, winner takes all, and please don’t hesitate to take whatever means necessary…
The fact that horror and tragedy is occurring more often than normal at major events should tell us something about how the mental state of our country is declining FAST.
For some odd reason, the general public seems to think that it is acceptable to express their emotions by causing harm to another, and then the wonderful media downplays it, or worse, points the finger back at the victims.
Reported by Yesimright,
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) described a “very strange” encounter with a man shortly before House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot during a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.
Scalise was shot in the hip and some of his security team members were also reportedly wounded.
DeSantis said by phone that he and another congressman were leaving when a man asked them whether Republican or Democrat members of Congress were on the field.

“I was kind of a little odd,” he said.
DeSantis said the man wasn’t carrying anything at that time, but then a few minutes later, the shooting started.
The gunman, who opened fire with a rifle, is reportedly in custody.
The members of Congress were holding an early-morning practice for an upcoming congressional baseball game.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said a massacre could have unfolded if police and Scalise’s security team were not there.
He said that he “vaguely” saw the gunman from about 75 yards away before the shots started.
Paul said just minutes earlier, he was in the area where the shots were coming from but walked to the batting cage area to hit.
Honestly, the self-serving nature of many of our elected officials is starting to look a lot like a nasty divorce, and “We the People” are just the kids, caught in the middle not emotionally able to deal with such drama.
