Enough Stress Already!


Our system wasn’t designed to tolerate this level of partisan stress.  A system based on checks and balances, and dependent upon compromise, has no answer when faced with raw determined relentless tribal partisanship.  Republicans – in the House at least – have decided to defend their Chief no matter what the facts say.  In a democracy, one must be willing to lose and still remain loyal to the process.  We crossed that line once before, after the election of 1860.  We have never been closer to it since than we are today.

The Democrats had no choice but to launch this impeachment procedure.  The primacy of the rule of law requires that the law be enforced, and Trump has clearly committed impeachable offenses.  The Democrats are doing the right thing.  That doesn’t make the endeavor any less dangerous.  Pray for America.
