Every administration, whether Democratic or Republican, needs a loyal opposition. Without it, the prevailing party could run roughshod over virtually everything. The important operative word, though, is "loyal." That assumes that both parties want the best for the American people, socially and economically. That's what they were elected to do, but they differ in their approaches about how to accomplish that.

Unfortunately the present Democratic administration does not have loyal opposition in the Republican Party. Rather, the Republican Party has become the party of power-hungry and destructive people who have two goals: (1) Create a system where they can determine whose votes can count and whose cannot, like another dictatorship; and (2) Block much of what the administration proposes, no matter the issue.
