Politics in the United States, or anywhere for that matter, should not divide the people of the nation. Politics is not supposed to be a game played by only those who can afford to play. Politics is not supposed to be about the holder of the highest office in the land seeking to commit crimes under the very noses of those who put him into office.
Politics should not be about Donald Trump saying that yes, he did things that were against the law and will continue to do them, and there is nothing that the people he purports to represent, the people who pay his salary (before you say it, yes, he does receive a salary) can do about it.
Politics should not be about a representative who is involved in a university sex scandal bullying his peers in an attempt to validate the criminal activities of the president. In the United States, the U.S. Constitution provides for a system of ‘checks and balances’ between the three branches of the federal government. Instead of following the Constitution, though, those who have taken an oath, who have sworn to uphold that very document, are trampling it every day. The republicans in Congress are naught but paid lackeys … hired hands who say “Yessir” and “Whatever you say, sir”, and when told to jump, ask “How high, sir?” to Donald Trump.
President Lincoln proclaimed in his Gettysburg Address on the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 1863 …
“… government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Friends, it has either perished or is lying dormant today! Today’s government is of the Donald, by the Donald, and for the Donald … nobody else matters, not even to about half of our representatives and senators in Congress! You want to talk about ‘quid pro quo’? Here’s the real ‘quid pro quo’ … Donald says to your district’s representative, or your state’s senator …
“You gotta support me … you gotta throw up roadblock after roadblock to get this impeachment thing stopped. You do this, I will come do a rally in your state to support you before the election. You don’t do it? I will tell so many filthy lies about you, call you so many ugly names, that you couldn’t get a job collecting trash.”
Our elected officials have forgotten that Donald Trump is NOT their boss! I am their boss, you are their boss, every one of 330 million+ people in this country are their boss. Donald Trump is not. We must remind them, and there are two ways to do that. First, we must call and write to them and inform them in no uncertain terms that they will rot in hell before we will ever vote for them again. Second, we must vote them OUT!
My own representative in the House, Warren Davidson, is a grade-A jackass who panders to Donald Trump, bends over as far as he tells him to, licks his boots, and then runs around the state doing Donald’s dirty work. Devin Nunes of California is a weasel, a little yappy dog who does Donald’s bidding even when it is unethical, immoral, and illegal. He plainly broke the law when, during the Mueller investigation, he told lie after lie and passed on information to Trump that he had no right to do. The Federal Election Commission is investigating Nunes for campaign finance violations. Jim Jordan is a bully who is under investigation by the State of Ohio for his role in the Ohio State University sex scandals when he was the assistant wrestling coach some twenty years ago. This is the bunch of jerks into whose hands we have entrusted our lives, my friends!
We’ve come a long way from 1787 when a group of men gathered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to draft a document, a guideline for the newly formed United States of America. Those men hoped to put forth a set of laws that would serve as a foundation for the government and the people of this nation. They were deep thinkers, unlike almost any in our government today. One of their foremost goals was to ensure that we could trust our government, that we would not be forced to tolerate corrupt politicians or unfair laws. I think that the framers of the U.S. Constitution would be appalled if they could see the mockery that our government is today.
Donald Trump is turning this nation into something it was never intended to be, and our elected representatives in Congress are helping him do it. Trump has committed impeachable crimes, and the House of Representatives is in the process of impeaching him for those crimes. However, the republicans in both chambers of Congress are doing everything in their power to turn the impeachment process into a three-ring circus. Each and every one of the republicans in Congress are guilty of obstructing justice. Nunes is threatening to open a second investigation and call his own witnesses. He and others have apparently taken an oath of fealty to Donald Trump and forgotten about the oath of office they took to this nation. There is one and only one way to rescue what is left of a “government of the people, by the people, for the people” …
