Republicans are looking good in these upcoming elections. A good deal of them have astutely capitalized on issues ranging from immigration, crime to inflation in order to rise into prominence. This is all good.

That’s the nature of politics. The good news is that there’s a way out of this mess: It’s by grassroots voters constantly holding their politicians’ feet to the fire and making sure to punish them when they legislate out of line.
