Is Trump Encouraging Civil War?

Thom plus logo Over the weekend, Donald Trump used words like "treason" and "Civil War" in his tweets, and called for the imprisonment of the US congressman who is leading the impeachment inquiry. Clearly, he is willing to put personal political survival above the good of our country, which is all the more reason he needs to be impeached right away. In fact, virtually every dimension of the impeachment investigation is about Trump putting personal interests above country, all the way back to the year-and-a-half that he lied to Republicans before the election, saying that he wasn't negotiating to build a hotel in Moscow when he fully intended to try to start construction as soon as he lost the election. Trump needs to be removed and replaced as soon as possible for the good of our nation.

Since the 2012 election with the McCain/Palin ticket the first call to "second amendment solutions" was annouced by Palin. Add that many right wingers age gun owners, and that by far right wing shooters account for most domestic terror. Throw in the engrained fear fueled by racist stupidity and its less about what Trump wants and more about a real or perceived belief that the "time" has come for warped minded white nationalist and brainwashed evangelicles to take power once and for all.

Our advantage is to strike while the iron is hot, dems should be taking from the right wing play book, fashion simple repeatable talking points and each and every presidential candidate should INCLUDE these impeachment talking points as often as possible. Start fighting back!!!!

Well said, Rockzombie! Democratic politicians must overcome the perception of weakness. Impeach this raving lunatic and then make Republican "leadership" look like the servile cowards they are. Keep the messages simple, stupid, and hammer it home.

The army of the dead WILL be defeated!
