After weeks of pretending they wanted a formal impeachment process, every Republican member of the House today voted against a formal impeachment process. pic.twitter.com/rgK3z7qP1v— Morten Øverbye (@morten) October 31, 2019
There were a couple things said. One was no matter what the house does or says, Republican opposition will move the goal posts The second warned about conservatives wanting these witness testimonies broadcast live. A case of be careful what you wish for.
My own thought is there never was a more discordant president in U.S. history. He has succeeded all too well in dividing this nation like no one else ever could. The battle lines are drawn and it doesn't bode well for either side. More importantly the future of this nation. Ideological differences have overtaken reason. It's people under the constitution are about to be tested unlike anything we've seen since the civil war.
There are some countries where they are allowed to call for 'flash elections' in the middle of their leader's term. Unfortunately our constitution doesn't afford voters this opportunity. Maybe it should have since it seems voters have lost confidence in our representatives to make this decision for us. They seem to be hopelessly deadlocked along party lines.
What do you think?
