The 2020 election is an existential moment for the United States. Next November will decide whether this country recovers its sovereignty or is dragged deeper under Russian influence. 2020 will determine whether the Russian/Republican vision of remaking U.S. democracy into a dictatorship will be fulfilled or buried.
If Trump's Base was to unite with us to throw this idiot tyrant out of our lives, then we would owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude. We need them. It could be a natural thing, like the body's healing processes. Think of the sense of shared beginning. The peace.
Like marshmallows floating above a mess of yams in a casserole dish, there are many sweet things that have risen to the top this year to be thankful for. Trump really is (and finally)...
As Republicans have deployed their morally bankrupt, party-and-power-before-country ploys, they have intentionally obscured or just flat out lied about truths that they don't want Americans to think about because they prove Trump is a criminal and that they are indeed criminal conspirators.
In the current anti-Trump political environment, should Americans go for what they really want, or should they be content to defeat Trump and preserve/conserve the status quo that keeps the 99% in economic bondage?
One might say that we don't care about the criminal aspects of Trump's behavior, as long as he does his job,. But when we need Trump to be our President, and to be there for us, he isn't.
When we set up shop on the rocky, thunderous eastern shore of an unknown continent, we started with almost nothing. But we had used the dreary days of the passage to begin our Constitution. Little did we know, it was our most valuable possession.
The problem isn't just that Trump is committing crimes in public. it's that he is being allowed to manipulate the workings of the United States Senate in plain sight. Worse yet and a crime, he is interfering in a Constitutional proceeding, impeachment.
It's Halloween and keeping with our tradition at PlanetPOV, we bring you this year's Halloween burnt offering...well, maybe burnt out a bit from 3 years of Trump but the exorcism of The White House has officially begun!
The Republican Party has been hollowed out like a Jack O'Lantern and the leering face carved into it is that of Donald J. Trump. They see themselves as above-the-law. Just a rogue political private security force under the rule of their Great Leader, serving only him and no longer the rule of law, their oath of office or the people they represent.
