We have arrived at the place in our country’s history where we have become so divided we can no longer hear each other. This is more than frightening. Blind allegiance to a cult personality has brought us to the edge of civil society.
There are now posts on Facebook suggesting civil war if the President is impeached. I have seen Tweets suggesting that government officials defending the Constitution and fulfilling their oaths of office been treated as traitors.
Where does this all end? We need to understand that wrong is wrong. If the President of the United States has done even half of what appears to be true, he does not deserve to be the leader of this country.
We are at the place where patriotism truly means placing the safety and the future of our nation over any one person or political party.
When I was nineteen I swore an oath to defend my country. I have seen nothing in the intervening 50+ years that releases me from that promise.
My tweets, my Facebook posts, and my blog are all attempts to remain faithful to that oath I made when I became a Marine. I love this country far too much to allow a lying whoremonger to destroy all that it stands for around the world.
At a time when most of the Republicans in the Senate are still wallowing in “the mud, the blood and the beer” with the most corrupt, cowardly, lying pig of a president in our nation’s history, we all need to remember this powerful quote from a true leader.
Every Republican that continues to defend the #BLOTUS is as much a traitor to the United States as he is. Bone Spurs are nothing compared to the spineless actions of McConnell and his herd of swine.
Every single one of them needs to be impeached; not voted out of office, impeached, indicted and tried in a court of law.
