It is 79 days until the next U.S. congressional midterm election.
Let us address the elephant in the room. The tweet above states it as unequivocally as possible: If Democrats take over the House and Senate, President Trump will be impeached, convicted and removed from office.
I’m not sure many candidates will come out and state it that strongly, but it’s simple reasoning.
Trump’s impeachable offenses are staggering, barely surpassing the unbelievability of Congress’ inaction. He is a human wrecking ball to this nation and the crane hoisting the ball is the Republican Party.
So, let’s accept Brian’s assessment that impeachment will definitely follow the Democrats taking control of the House. This may open to some people the question of whether that’s a good thing for the country.
“It’s embarrassing.” “It makes our country look weak.” “We shouldn’t air our dirty laundry in public.”
No, no, no, no, NO!
Removing a developing tyrant is EXACTLY what would illustrate the greatness of the United States of America.
Our system was designed with checks and balances because the framers were wriggling out from underneath the pressure of a tyrant. They wanted nobody to have ultimate power. In their intent, the current GOP Congress would have long ago reined in the president. Republicans have failed miserably in their responsibility.
It now falls back on the voters. Is this why congressmen have to run for election every two years, because our forefathers figured that’s not enough time to totally botch everything? Regardless, Congress has taken a pass on doing its job in favor of coddling a man who would be king. Now, it’s up to us.
We the voters, come this fall election, must send a Blue Wave crashing into Washington. There must be such a resounding rejection of the past two years that even the remaining Republicans in office will see the errors of their ways.
THAT, my friend, is something of pride. It will show this country is still on its feet, still a friend of justice, still a land of liberty. Still a government by the people.
To make it happen, we need nobody to sit on the sidelines. If you are eligible to vote, make sure you are registered. Be certain you vote. In fact, vote early to make sure nothing keeps you from it. And vote Democratic; be part of showing to the world part of what makes America truly great.
