Enjoyed the read but would like to add. This advice should not only be directed at the Swamp Creature politicians but also the Swamps Fake News, Bad Biased Educators, Biased Social Media and those Swamp Creatures in the entertainment and sports business. We should all love our Country, Flag, Patriots, and respect our President not hate one another who have opinions different than ours.
