    The Dark Side Of Impeaching Trump

    Yes, he's incompetent and bigoted. Yes, impeachment is now virtually inevitable. Yes, it is great fun to kick a bigot.

    But.....the people running around saying "See! We should have elected Hillary!" are as wrong as it is humanely possible to be.

    Domestically, we need a progressive POTUS who will really protect the poor, revive the middle class and restrain the 0.01% to a reasonable degree. (Probably not Bernie. 81 is an unreasonable age for a POTUS, IMO.)

    Maybe Warren, but the problem there is, although she's a math and economics genius, I can't recall her every demonstrating any proficiency in justice or social issues.

    But no matter. Stop saying "We need to save Obamacare!" No, we are hideously injured by Obamacare. We need universal care.

    We need a POTUS who will attack our stupid drug laws and dismantle the prison industrial complex. We KNOW that is not Hillary, as she is the main architect of it. No Democrat of her corporatist type is at all acceptable.

    Trump refocused attention on the HUGE pockets of poverty and despair in this country. The Rust Belt. Appalachia. Etc. We need a POTUS who will carry out his trade agenda. Or something very near to it -- not another TPP proponent.

    So, as we throw the baby out with the bathwater, can we please exercise some care not to kill the middle class and bring about a Depression that never ends?

    We need REAL liberals. And the one place we know they won't be found is the Democratic party.

    The Democratic Party is about 60% moderates, 35% far left radicals and 5% center right blue dogs. Not any part of the party can win Jack Shit by itself, it takes all three groups to win national elections. We need inclusiveness and finding links to each other rather than divisiveness and finger pointing. As much as you hated Clinton, she was the nominee and Bernie put his support behind her because he did not let the perfect keep him from supporting the good. Now we are stuck with this fucking sociopath for the next four years in order for the far left to feel good about standing up for their fucking holy principles.

    If Impeachment were to actually happen, it would be close to 2020.

    Pence would only be President for less than 1/2 term. He and the GOP Congress would be on lame duck mode.

    It is better to lose, and fight for what's right, than to whore yourself out to the evil 0.01%.

    The Democratic party is not pro-American.

    I agree. Although I expect the proceedings to commence in the next several weeks.

    Yeah... not seeing that happening. Much better to just sit back and enjoy the entertainment.

    Trump has not yet been president for several weeks. "Several" means seven or more.
