The art of the deal (or lack thereof)

It's interesting as Trump surges in the Republican primary, a persona who has long held liberal views such as raising taxes and single payer health care, are at the top of the polls.

But those are polls.  And this is just a fleeting moment in time where the issue is resonating.

I think it's more important to focus on what matters in the here in now.  Not what some pols are saying to one another, but rather, matters that affect all of our lives in the here and now.

The issue is how terrible this Iran deal is.

Fundamentally, it's terrible because it basically paves the way for Iran to get a nuclear bomb.  If the left says that's not true, it's lying.  The truth is they believe Iran deserves to have the bomb - because to them it's only fair.  This is the type of dangerous moral relativism that puts millions of lives in jeopardy.

To them, a nuclear Iran would offset the 'evil' menace of the Zionist regime. However, these are lawless murderers intent on spreading their influence as far as they can.  No one trusts them.

This is why the sudden common tone between both Israel and the Arab nations should send a message to everyone - there is real danger here.

History tells us that at first, there is a great deal of fanfare and excitement for these international deals.  But then, much like Jurrassic Park, that is often followed by running and screaming.

But in all this too is lost the inability of Congress to do it's part to protect us.  Now you have fools like Corker, and his allies in the conservative media, like Fox New's Brit Hume, trying to reassure us there is nothing we can do.  These are fools who have given up our sovereignty to foreign powers - and they paved the way.

Enough is enough.  If these people do not want to fulfill their role as our representatives, then they should resign and let someone else do the job.
