While I Understand the political implications of creating a tempest in the impeachment teapot that could backlash in the election, what if we wait and lose through repeated misconduct? Who would further hand power to a bunch of political fairies who are afraid of their own shadow?
Distasteful as it may be, meaningful wrong doing has been uncovered. The path to solving the problem is clear as shown in the Mueller documents. The dangers of continued procrastination are looming as new violations are added every day. The time is now, investigate or drown in a sea of neglect.
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value…..” December 23, 1776, Thomas Paine
We as a nation have allowed a pending tyranny to violate our laws, to upend and trample on our customs and risk descending into an historical darkness as other democracies have done throughout history. The risk is clear. The choice stares us in the face. We must not flinch If we hope to remain free men and women ourselves, or have any hope of passing on to our children and grandchildren a fraction of what our parents fought for and died for just seventy-five years ago.
We must take the steps, under law, of investigating and indicting the tyrant followed by a conviction and removal, of the illegal president and his merry crew of sycophants, or lose our political souls, and our children’s future.
