Darrell Issa has announced he is leaving the House of Representatives at the end of his current term. In other words, he will not be seeking a re-election to his seat and he will not be seeking another seat, say in the US Senate.
He is one of many current Swamp Monsters that have announced they would “retire” from the politics and swamp of Washington, D.C. and return home and stay home. Or at least stay out of D.C. as an elected official.
The number is growing and the vast majority of these retirements are coming from the Republican side of the isle.
This is not to say its a bad thing. Democrats seem to believe they have a shot at turning those empty seats into Democrat seats in November of 2018. What they fail to realize is that many of the Republicans that are calling it quits, have realized that they would either be primaried or would lose in November.
This is actually a grand opportunity for voters to have the field cleared for them to find and elect more Constitutional loving candidates. This could be a boon for President Trump. It will be in the hands of the voter if Trump gets the help he so richly deserves to keep moving the nation forward and to keep returning freedom and liberty to the American people.
