Forget The Fog Of War, this will be The fog Of Misdirection.
Welcome to the land of "facts don't matter".
So, did the democrats get it right?
Will the public be behind them and, drag kicking and screaming, a few republicans along the way?
Or will they play out the worst case scenario and lose the house majority too?
Will Trumps numbers go up or down or stay the same?
It can all be terribly confusing and complicated to follow.
And let's be honest, it's exhausting!
Would it have been wiser to just have waited for 2020 and let the people decide (barring any unforeseen interference by Russia or China or Saudi Arabia or someone else)?
Let's face it we already know the out come.
The Senate is going to acquit so what's the point right?
Let's look at another way;
The United States Of America is a giant Wal-Mart or Costco and, we the people are all the shoppers.
The store is crowded and we are all just minding our own business, doing our shopping when all of a sudden there is a gasp coming from someone behind you.
You turn to see what's going on and there in the middle of isle 34, there is a woman or man hitting their child.
Everyone watching is aghast.
"Someone do something"!
"Someone stop her/him"!
"Someone call the police"!
"This is terrible"!
But no one does anything and the person keeps hitting the child.
That's what NOT bringing Articles Of Impeachment would have been like.
It may be hard.
It may be unpopular.
It may be risky.
Maybe the democrats will lose seats.
Maybe trump will win in 2020.
But should we just stand by and watch and do nothing because it's safer?
Or do we try to save the child (our democracy)?
Democratic representative's in Trump districts are voting their conscience and risking their seats as the House votes to impeach.
You don't have to hate Trump to understand that he has committed acts of high crimes and misdemeanor's.
But, if we stand idly by and do nothing are we not complicit?
Should we not be willing to stand up for what's right...
otherwise, what's the point?
Have a great Wednesday...

Very important, the stepping forth into the fray... hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx
Donate to your local Democrats running against Republicans: Lizzie Fletcher and Lorenzo Sanchez, for example, in ‘Texas. Both are first for education, voting rights, medical for all, and more. But those reading this blog are aware of your points. What we need is more Representatives on the streets of middle America going house to house like Jane Fonda’s group. I am in France but there are Americans here and I try to talk with all I meet, also Europeans who are shocked at what Trump has devastated during his term. Horrified, all those I’ve met. And the US is no longer the country that essentially ended WWII.ReplyDelete
We can’t agree with you more. Regardless of one’s political beliefs the evidence is there and he has lied and broken the law.ReplyDelete
We are crossing our paws the Senate convicts him.
There's lots I could say about this both for and against. I'm not a fan of DJT and really think he needs to be kept in check. ~Island Cat MomReplyDelete
I just dunno anymore. Moscow Mitch is gonna make the "trial" a farce. We all know that. He'll be like the cop in the store that says "nothing to see here" and leaves the man beating his child. The US is screwed and so is democracy.ReplyDelete
