~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
So I've been reading a few articles regarding the current impeachment "inquiry", and to sum them up they make the following points:
-Nancy Pelosi doesn't plan to hold a House-wide vote anytime soon on impeachment.
-The rumor in Washington is that Democrats intend to impeach by Thanksgiving, and start a trail before Christmas.
-Erick Erickson believes the Democrats will drag it out until Thanksgiving, and build articles of impeachment between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
-ThirtyFiveEight indicates that Americans now support impeachment by a 5.4% margin.
-Chris Wallace claims that a Republican insider told him that some in the party appear to be peeling away from the president
-Jeff Flake said that if the vote were anonymous, dozen of Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump.
-A Politico/Morning Consult poll said that 43% were in favor of impeachment proceedings
-A Gullup poll said 52% of Americans want the president impeached and removed.
Where to begin. First of all this isn't going to go anywhere as long as Nancy isn't going to hold an official House vote on impeachment. She want's to drag it out as long as possible to test the waters and gather as much support as she can. She obviously isn't confident she has enough votes currently otherwise she would have voted on it by now. And even if the House does vote for it, I don't see it making it past the Senate. But the real goal, as I see it, is to damage the president as much as possible prior to the 2020 election.
In no way has the president done anything remotely worthy of impeachment, nor has he broken any laws. It's glaring obvious it is purely politically driven, as the Democrats have wanted to remove Trump since day one. They are so afraid he will get reelected that they will do ANYTHING to get him removed. So they have manufactured a scandal, blown it completely out of proportion, and put their spin on it with help from the media.
As for polls, I'm with Sarah Palin when she says polls are for strippers. Too often polls are crafted in such a way as to sway public opinion. I honestly can't believe that the average American wants an impeachment apart from the rapid leftsts and deranged NeverTrumpers. What exactly is there to complain about? The economy is good, employment has been down to record lows, black unemployment is the lowest its been in 17 years, and we haven't been involved in any new wars. Isn't that want the anti-war left and libertarian types wanted?
And to the RINO traitors that would go along with this. Make no mistake that if Pelosi were to succeed it would be the end of the GOP party. They might as well be signing their own death warrants, because they wouldn't stop at Trump. It would be open season on all Republicans, including Pence. And I can grantee that the next president would be Democrat and those after him or her for the foreseeable future, because the GOP would be tarnished for decades to come.
If a duly elected president can be removed so easily by the whim of the Democrats then they will just do it again the next time. And if the spineless GOP is going to help them then what's the point of ever voting Republican again? We might as well call ourselves a banana republic at that point.
I still believe this will backfire spectacularly on the Democrats and that Trump will be reelected in 2020. Nancy Pelosi may have very well overplayed her hand and lose the House as well. No one would deserve to lose more than her and the Democrat party. And if people are stupid enough to vote leftism and socialism in 2020, then they get the kind of nation they deserve.
