America now has a President elected by its heartland rather than its East and West coasts. This election embittered leftist liberals who dismiss middle America as nothing but “Flyover Country.”

The left did everything in its power to prevent Donald Trump’s presidency, even hiring professional protesters to engage in violent mob actions against his rallies and supporters. No previous election or inauguration in our history has taken place under such precarious conditions.

Years ago, I myself went through an extended liberal phase where I experienced liberals up close. They believe their opinions are facts, and anyone holding contrary views is not only wrong, but immoral. My disillusionment with liberals has been reinforced by Dr. Lyle Rossiter’s book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.” Over 40 years of practice, as a clinical psychiatrist as well as a forensic psychiatrist, led Dr. Rossiter to the conclusion that liberalism should be characterized as a psychological disorder. Concerning liberals Dr. Rossiter said: “Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

Liberals cannot accept things that don’t go their way. They blocked highways to prevent attendance at Trump rallies. Electoral college voters received death threats to get them to cast their votes in opposition to their state’s official voting results. Members of Congress were pressured not to certify the official presidential vote and entertainers chosen to perform at Trump’s inauguration received death threats. In addition to plans to disrupt the inauguration, there appears to have been a scheme to ruin the celebratory “Deploraball” by placing acid in ventilation systems to sicken celebrants.

But even with the press and entertainment field firmly under their control, liberals couldn’t manipulate middle Americans into supporting their leftist agenda. President Trump has been elected and inaugurated so liberals should end their disruption campaign and let him do his job.

Fire gutted a vacant house shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, leaving fire crews working hard through noon to extinguish the flames and make sure they did not spread to nearby trees or the neighboring business.

This past week, I received a telephonic Robo Call from someone stating he represented the Glynn County Republican Party. There surely must be a parallel universe with a similar name since that call was nothing but false accusations and lies about ESPLOST 3.
