Lately, I've sharpened my wit a bit on Twitter, because of the needed brevity. And, you can search out for people 'worth' speaking to easily. There's a lot of genuine souls that need convincing out there, and it's okay to lend a hand in getting their heads straight! Other than that, you tend to move on to better pastures for the convo.
You've got that right, Suzanne. When liberalism shows itself as the failure it always is, they clam up, get reticent to talk politics ( they all suck; they're all alike; well, what about so-and-so, et cetera ), and STILL they stick to the failed policies that doom this and ANY nation that incorporates them. A sad state of affairs, when you can't even converse with your opponent.
I'll take George Bush over Barack Obama anytime. However non-conservative some of his policies have been, he has been a vastly different president than the current Oval Office Occupant (I call him #OOO on Twitter!). The Obama policies, with the full-face support of his comrades in Congress, have been a disgrace to the United States of America, made a laughing stock of this country across the planet, and done NOTHING to handle what government was established to do.
That this ever-encroaching mindset of 'government is the answer' to the woes of the nation is the largest telling our of time, and the biggest fight to sustain the freedoms our forefathers have given of their lives for.
What an absolute shame we are at this point in history. The fight is still RIGHT.
Keep in mind the Obama supporters will never believe him to be ineligible to serve as commander-in-chief...doesn't matter what evidence will be presented, or what knowledge is so obvious, one would be a fool NOT to question. This does make it harder to engage those so deeply entrenched this way, in the notion their choices were so, so wrong, and makes the enlightenment of the 'Low Information Voter' even more challenging.
I can admit I supported GWBush on his leadership, when I should have questioned more. You. Will. Not. Get. Liberals. To. Do. That. They are lockstep and knee-jerk, and will not budge or compromise. When you have voter fraud as an issue, this will ALWAYS be something that applies more to those who desire power...at all costs. It is a shame, and our works to reverse this are yet to bear fruit, and so, we keep on keeping on - !
And there it is, the sheeple: apathy abounds, and the see no evil-hear no evil-speak no evil, all-are-the-same litany invades our discourse and evades the answers needed in this all-in-for-me attitude so pervasive this day. Going forward, the fight MUST address the absurdity that government is always the resolve. The cloaks over the transparency, the drown-us-out no accountability, and the never-ending non-responsibility must END!
I wholeheartedly agree, the shame brought upon the great nation, and the damage done - possibly irrevocably - is so prevalent day-to-day now, those not interested in the process and responsibilities of citizenry are numb now to this group of radicals. It is disheartening, and then, it's an honor to know of those in each of our lives who take upon them the accountability to address this battle, where so many of our representatives do or will not.
Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment
House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.
Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.
Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.
Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.
In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.
Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,
Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.
Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.
Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.
The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.
In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
