Being a news junkie, this writer found himself glued to trumps impeachment hearings. Repeatedly Republican senators chastised house Democrats for sending impeachment articles to the Senate for trial. Arguing that removing trump from office should be left to the voters in November.
That amounts to the highest degree of misrepresentation of truth possible. Because, they know that they own the Electoral College. Feeling certain that the Electoral College will award the presidency to trump in November, as they did in 2016.
So they played their artful craft of playing upon the gullibility of most of the nations eligible voters. Citizen trips to the ballot box is meaningless. Because, there are 528 electors in the Electoral College. And all it takes to overturn the millions votes cast by voting Americans is for 270 members of the college to overturn our vote and declare trump the winner. Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton won the national popular vote by nearly three million votes. And lost her bid to become the first woman to be elected president of the United States. Because it all boiled down to the wishes of 270 votes out of the 528 seats within the Electoral College.
From the last three presidential elections the candidate that won the national vote was denied the presidency. Want to learn more about how to make the Electoral College work for the millions, as opposed to the hundreds. Read my discussion posted yesterday.
Trump was charged, and indicted by the House of Representatives for Abuse Of Power and Obstruction Of Congress. It was clear from all the evidence presented that trump was guilty on both counts. And, therefore should have been found guilty by the Senate and removed from office.
Here is a brief, and simple analogy supporting the rational for the removal of trump from office.
Abuse Of Power: Picture a company CEO, who has negotiated an employee agreement between the company and its employees. Then this CEO try’s to undermine that agreement in all, and any, nefarious way available to him. He’d be fired!
That’s exactly what the donald did, when he perceived a threat to his presidency from former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump should have been fired by the Senate.
Obstruction of Congress: A process server from the sheriffs office attempts to serve a lawful subpoena. But, the recipient refuses the subpoena, and informs the process server to inform the court. That he will not cooperate with the court. The recipient would sooner than latter, be hauled before the court and punished.
That’s exactly what the donald did, as the house sought to subpoena witnesses and documents. Slam duck, the Republican senators should have joined the Democrats. And together, they should have punished trump by removing him from office.
This is not a partisan argument because that’s exactly what the Democrat’s would have done, if the shoe had been on the other foot.
Democracy demands unabridged fairness, if denied, then democracy doesn’t exist. That’s why, we the voters must take charge of our country. We the voting public must make all politicians subservient to us. It’s been the other way since the birth of this nation. Enuf is enuf. The remedy is available through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. It’s more detailed with yesterdays discussion.
