I've been discouraged by a lot that President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress have initiated since Trump's term began. To say nothing of the substance of their agenda, I disapprove of the way they've gone about executing it, from impugning the media, to changing rules, to silencing dissenters. Being a simple majority is no license to skip even trying to come to reasonable compromise.
As disappointed as I am, I'm also reminded that there is still such a thing as the moral high ground. You may be outnumbered or disliked, but if you act with good motives and judgment no matter what your opponents do, the record will at least show that.
