43. Ahhh. Idealism.

Wonderful to think about. So beautiful.

But it won't get trump out of office and in jail. It doesn't matter if 2/3 of the people want trump convicted. A majority didn't want him as president in the first place. But there he is. And unless you have 2/3 or the senate - meaning about 20 republican senators - who will vote to convict, you are playing into trump's hands. You are right that the hearing would unite people. Just look at the clarence thomas hearings and the brett kavanaugh hearings. Those really united the people. Both are now supreme court members for life. Maybe hearings could make trump president or life.

Learn about gerrymandering. Learn about the reality of how people with no morals are currently in power.

And sorry to tell you that the mega morons are the ones the republican senators worry about. They aren't going anywhere. You may not need them. You may not want them. But those are the idiots that currently run things. We would find out nothing in impeachment hearings that we can find out without giving trump an extra ace.

But, boy would I love to feel all self-righteous and clean by reclaiming the idealism of my youth. Golly, it felt good. It didn't change things. Voting and campaigning and canvassing and working the polls did.
