A few Republican voices

One of my biggest concerns for the future of this nation has been that the republicans in Congress, whose duty it is to serve the nation … ALL of its people … pretend to be blind to the atrocities committed by the ‘man’ in the Oval Office. To that end, they are doing a disservice to us all, and putting this nation in danger of being ruled by an authoritarian. So, I find it encouraging when republicans begin to find their voices and speak out. Our friend Keith has written a post that I think you’ll find encouraging about a few of those republicans with conscience. Thank you, Keith!

In a New York Times article today (see link below), co-authors George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson penned “We are Republicans and we want Trump defeated.” Here are three paragraphs from the article:

“Mr. Trump fails to meet the bar for this commitment. He has neither the moral compass nor the temperament to serve. His vision is limited to what immediately faces him — the problems and risks he chronically brings upon himself and for which others, from countless contractors and companies to the American people, ultimately bear the heaviest burden.

But this president’s actions are possible only with the craven acquiescence of congressional Republicans. They have done no less than abdicate their Article I responsibilities.

Indeed, national Republicans have done far worse than simply march along to Mr. Trump’s beat. Their defense of him is imbued with an ugliness, a meanness and a willingness to attack…

  1. Government is no longer about governing, but ruling. And your present rulers want to make sure they remain rulers. 99% of the population mean nothing to them. According to Donnie Junk Truck there are only rich people and wage slaves. And only the rich people are smart enough to rule the wage slaves. It is unrealistic to think wage slaves could rule the rich. And of course, he believes himself to be one of the rich. Anything else would be illogical. But we all know he does not know how to admit the truth about himself: He is a peasant with delusions of grandeur. And everyone knows that but him.

    • Your assessment is spot on. Sadly. Wealth can be measured in a couple of ways … Trump defines it much differently than I do. By my definition, I am far wealthier than he, though my bank account may have far fewer digits. Sigh. Why, I wonder, hasn’t somebody at least attempted to get rid of him? They kill Kennedy, MLK, Bobby Kennedy, but they leave Trump alone? WHY???

      • Because Trump is a sleazy businessman who bullied and bribed his way to the top. The main reason our budget deficit has exploded over the past 3 years… he bought out the military and intelligence agencies.
        It’s a 3 ring circus, CIA and FBI are 100% corrupt, on the surface they may oppose him in the media, but in reality the directors and generals are in his pocket. Trump was sly enough to understand like any despotic dictator, he must have power on his side. Hence every year he approved allocation of 100s of billions of our tax dollars toward military budget and intelligence security. They will never assassinate their golden goose, pay for play at it’s worse.
        He will never get impeached b/c he also bought the loyalty of his party. And he will cheat to get re-elected with the help of Russia and his shady business “associates”. Rudy Rudy Giuliani’s henchmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman confessed to getting paid $1 million each to do Trump’s bidding in Ukraine.
        Hmmm, wonder why the Democrats didn’t bring this up during the impeachment trials, oh right b/c that will also implicate Joe Biden and son. Sigh, they’re all corrupt… that’s why nothing fundamentally changes, we living in a rotten broken system.

        • While I agree with some of what you say, I think you are giving Trump far more credit than he deserves. And, I think that the military are getting pretty fed up with him. Time will tell, but something needs to happen and soon, for he is obviously off the wall and is a clear and present danger not only to the U.S., but to the world.
