After the House of Representatives, for the second time in about a year impeached Donald Trump, it does beg the question, “Is this the ‘uniting’ of the country that Joe Biden was talking about?” Other than kicking an wounded dog while he’s down and dying, I cannot fathom what in hell is running through the addled mind of Nancy Pelosi. Unless she is so concerned that Trump may be actually deciding to run for office again in 2024, and wants to put a total end to that theory, there is absolutely no use for the House to engage in such a thing, unless it’s pure politics. And of course it is.
But still, to answer the question, is there anything that impeachment can do to actually unite the country? My answer would be no. All it will do is the 36% of people out there that are still Trump supporters (down from 44.6% just before the election), it’s going to further divide them, and send them into more of a tizzy than you saw last week.
So, if the act of impeachment isn’t going to do anything to do as Joe Biden suggests, and unite the country, as even AOC is talking about, then what good is impeachment? Well, it does do one thing that Nancy Pelosi has up her sleeve, but hasn’t said a damn word about. It will splinter the Republican party. THAT is the ultimate goal of San Fran Nan.
Now, the question becomes, will that tactic work? I doubt it. Impeachment has never been a successful tool in removing a president from office, and the fact that this one has five days left, all it’s meant to do is rub salt in the Republicans’ wound. Except I don’t think that works either because if you listen to what GOP members on the Hill are saying, they are done with Trump. Like the TV celebrities before him who have waded into politics, Donald Trump blew onto the scene after spending four years teasing his Apprentice viewers that he would run, actually won the office, and now has fizzled out like a dying star. The one thing politicians are good at (and there aren’t many qualities they are good at) is they can sense when a colleague is about to pass on, career wise. And that stench is unbearable surrounding Trump right now.
Overall, this tactic does nothing to bring the country together. The end game from the left is to destroy the Republican party and become a one-party rule. Unfortunately for Democrats, that’s a flawed goal. The left needs the right. The right needs the left. Politics in our country has for at least two centuries been a “blame game” of sorts, and you can’t keep power very long if you can’t blame someone for the wrongs that are exposed in government. Being human, we have a LOT of wrongs in our government. If the Democrats succeed in getting rid of the Republicans and taking over a one-party-system of government…we are inching closer to that inevitable Thomas Jefferson quote that a revolution every once in a while is a good thing!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
