Some of the Republicans are lost for democracy, some others don't have the balls to kick this mad man out of the White House asap.Quote
the only headline I'd like to read is 'Trump impeached, removed from office and arrested'
(maybe that's the only way to save the country as well as the Republican Party)
Stephen Colbert...sums it up:
Can't help feeling sorry, for want of a better word, for all the decent Americans being tarred by the brush of the embarrassing and shameful abomination that is their President. I hope but doubt that Mike Pence has the guts to do what it takes to impeach him, in which case I hope that he's arrested at one minute past midnight on 21 January, though the rumour is that he's planning to be holed up at his Scottish golf course by then. One wonders why that might be... The charge sheet will be a long one but it could start with incitement to violence and complicity in the resulting deaths, which are charges that could be levelled at any average tin-pot dictator.
I do not understand why the USA, or Great Britain, do not change to a proportional electoral system. If you do that you will have more than two parties to vote for.
Another question is how long the Republican Party will support Trump. One would think that they out of pure self-interest would distance themselves from him.
Trump? It's like that old Tina Turner song - "what you see is what you get". You voted him in. This is what you got.
Thank You for your kind words and support . At the end of the day we are a nation of law and rule and without that we are not free . Freedom is not free and so many people have given there lives and shed there blood in sacrifice to protect and honor our free society that we live in. Yesterday was a shame and stain on our nations history . Where a mob led by someone who does not respect and honor our values as a free society and only thinks of himself and not the Nations best Interest and it's citizens . Yesterday I was deeply ashamed and embarrassed and horrified beyond my comprehension at what I witnessed before my eyes . God help us and hear our pleas for mercy and peace !Quote
Normally we do not discuss politics on IORR. However, this is not politics. At least four people are dead. The US State Capitol was invaded by a mob. This is terror.
I feel sad. I hope for the best for all the thousands of my US friends, and for the great real USA I love so much. Hopefully the lawmakers may stop this desperate coup attempt, and get the great United States back into what it was in the past - a shining example of democracy. Right now, the headline of The Washington Post is just sad : "Democracy Dies in Darkness"
