Here is the list of people who are so small morally that they put their hyperpartisan leftist extremism ahead of doing what is right for their country. This is a time when we are showing the world that in the United States, we have an orderly and peaceful transfer of power even when the transfer is to another political party.

The people in the following list are, in my view, despicable. They should attend the inauguration whether or not they agree with the political point of view of the incoming President. This is not about Donald Trump, this is about America, and our Republic. For the record, no Republican boycotted either Obama inauguration.

  1. As I look at the Reps. that will not attend Trump’s inauguration, I feel ashamed for America and their choice not to attend. They are sadly saying to the world that they are acting like disgruntled, spoiled brats that have lost our respect. Like children, I’m sure that they will wrangle out some sort of justification for their actions; however it is pathetic that they are holding positions representing U.S citizens that are contrary to their boycott. This will be American history in the making that is left with a residue of shame.
