We begin each New Year with a renewed anticipation for progress and stability. Slim chance of that this year as we have just seen a (2016) election and a presidential administration transition that could have been scripted by George Orwell or Rod Sterling! In this New Year there are questions and uncertainties with an elephant in the room that takes pride in uncertainty. The new president, Donald J. Trump, has often stated, “I like being unpredictable.” Many 2016 voters went to the polls hungry for something other than politics as usual, wanting change. Most people desire change as a replacement for that which they perceive as not working, replacing it with something better, replacing injustice with fairness, replacing negatives with positives, replacing society’s ills with cures. Trading the needs of the multitudes for the avarice of a handful of special interests is not positive change.
