When will enough be enough for the Republicans to impeach trump?

Last edited Sat Sep 30, 2017, 09:25 PM - Edit history (2)

When will this experiment in lunacy end? The answer, is that it isn't going to. It's not going to because the republican House and Senate are greedy and cowardly. They have decided to let this man continue to do things a Democratic president would been impeached for even thinking about. THEY. ARE. LETTING. THIS. MAN. DO. THIS. It's not the fault of his voters anymore, or the electoral college, or Democratic voters, or anybody else. THEY, the Republicans in D.C., have become defacto co-conspirators. Every single thing he does while in office falls back on them. While they may not give a flying hell about any of it because they're getting theirs. History will not reflect kindly on them, any of them, because the only conclusions to be made as to why is that the sold the American public out for 30 pieces of Silver.

They are traitors to this country and should be judged accordingly. As they sit on their hands anything and everything that once made, yes once made as in the past tense, this country great is has been cast aside. Because right now, today, this country is mediocre as hell. Of course they don't care because they thrive on this mediocrity. They keep their voters misinformed and out of the loop in order to have them vote against themselves. These fuckers are happy as long as the guys at the top push a few pieces of their thoroughly chewed and digesting leavings to the floor for them to lick up.

The disposition and attitudes they display screams out, to me at least, that we all, the entire American populace, don't matter one damn bit. No matter how things shake out they will have a soft landing while the rest of us are left to sift through the wreckage of this country. That's all that matters in the long run to them. As long as you guys have a bolt hole in the storm right? As long as you have that fuck the rest of us, right? right? of course it's right, it's the Republican way.

So, guess I answered my own question about when will enough be enough for Republicans in Washington to make a move on ending this insanity. Sadly, I'm thinking the answer is now, and always has been, probably never.

1. "Probably never" is the best bet.

Even Chris Matthews said so last week.

2. My guess:

when he goes below 20% in the polls.

Then they will be worried about their own butts.

4. The GOP is made of of moral cowards and greedy miscreants who put self interest over country

I have reached the point where I no longer think anything can shock me. Except, perhaps, for the GOP doing a turn about.

5. They are loving this crap, so never.

They have BIG plans to gut social security and medicare, kill public schools, poison the air and water and make the rest of us slaves to the one percenters. No way are they doing anything to push him out. Of course Pence is their wet dream, maybe they will give us 2 years of Trump and then finish us off with 2 years of Brother Pence and his band of religious zealots.

Not a second before. When he does, they'll go after him at light speed.

are going to derail right along with everybody else.

8. Never is the most likely answer.

It would be almost unthinkable for a Republican-controlled House to impeach a president of its own party. Same thing applies to the Republican-controlled Senate, which would never vote to remove a Republican.

It's not going to happen.

10. I have to talk the people around me down about that every day.

One relative in particular that is apoplectic about it and often becomes inconsolable over it. The republicans don't care, they simply don't. There is more than enough evidence to push him out, not tomorrow, but today.

11. I tell people that the response should be a massive turnout

of Democrats in 2018 and 2020. That is how we do it. That is how we must do it.

28. You are assuming we have Election Integrity.

We don't. The disaster of 2016 showed that. We have gerrymandering, homegrown election manipulation plus Russification. "Throwing the bums out" in 2018 and 2020 may prove very dicey if not impossible. I hope I am wrong.

36. No, I do not assume that at all. I assume

that a massive turnout would overwhelm any attempts at election manipulation. And so it would. Plus, in some states, like my own Minnesota, there is no such manipulation.

In what state do you live, and what is the state of election integrity there? If it is not good, what are you doing to help correct that?

17. They aren't going to do that, no matter

how bad he gets. Their only concerns are power (before country, of course), and catering to their 30 percent base, which, to them, is all that matters, not the majority. There will be a special spot in hell for all of them when this is finally over.

if they continue to support Trump. Not likely to happen.

Everything that happens, happens to all of us. Well, all of us that aren't making enough money to require stashing it in all kinds of tricky ass financial devices.

25. Never! They got their precious majority and a Koch stooge in the White House.

It's all good for them. Only way out of this I'm afraid is going to be a war or an uprising.

30. Yep, you answered the "why" of it

They have no motive to impeach Trump. It's not in their best interest. With money in politics, with gerrymandering, and with just-plain-conservatve insane bullshit, they've got no reason.

Are NOT going to impeach Trump. Impeachment is a political decision, not a legal one. The sooner we realize this, the better. Its NOT going to happen.
