The political left’s hatred toward President Trump is becoming increasingly destructive. Leftist politicians have abandoned negotiation, compromise and humility. They are determined to change and cast America into their mold — and design no matter how often they need to trample on the Constitution to achieve this end.

They are similar to the recovering alcoholic who’s gone off the wagon. The sin is in that first drink. Being unable to stop drinking reveals a disease; so does preferring destruction of our way of life, tradition and laws. Though they are self-absorbed with the desire to harm Mr. Trump, they realize that having baneful malice is not a healthy state of mind. It would defy reason to believe that they are comfortable with their behavior.

The majority of conservatives are guilty of cowardice because they ignored the right to peaceful protest. By lacking the motivation and resolve to stand up for themselves, they chose to be oblivious of the left’s attacks on the Constitution, Mr. Trump and the American presidency. They remained idle while our nation was excoriated by an attempted coup that led to an impeachment of our president. Our Founding Fathers would be ashamed at their inaction.

The severe weakening of the American presidency will be the fault of all Americans, but the political right will bear the lion’s share because they had the strength of character to defend our rights, the presidency and the Constitution, but did nothing.
