What Else Are We missing? Impeachment Should Include All of Trump's Crimes

Thom plus logo Donald Trump has threatened the fate and future of human civilization by joining with fossil fuel industry billionaires in denying climate change.
-- He has threatened world peace by upending our alliances with other democratic nations and aligning himself with dictators, murderers and autocrats.
-- He has sold off public lands to his donors and cronies, devastated our public parks and sacred places, installed an anti-labor labor secretary and anti-school education secretary, and broadly corrupted a government that Americans have fought and died to create and maintain for over 240 years.
-- He has enriched himself at the expense of the American people and given people like Jared Kushner, a grifter and a clear security risk, access to the nation's most sensitive secrets.
-- He has welcomed foreign interference in our elections on multiple occasions over multiple years, and brought the office of the presidency into ridicule and disrepute.

Impeachment is not just a process of censuring or removing a president from office. Impeachment is also a historical document that tells future generations where America draws the lines.

Are Democrats really that stupid?
I can't believe the Democrats are so stupid to impeach President Trump. Am I missing something? The desire for impeachment of the President is trending downward among voters, removal from office by the Senate is not going to happen. The result of all this will be a stronger President, a stronger Republican Party, and a 'schlacking' of Democrats in 2020. Ralph Waldo Emerson said "When you strike at the king, you must kill him." Freidrich Nietzsche said "That which does not kill us make us stronger". I say "Democrats are really as dumb as they act".

If Trump is allowed to get away with his behaviour, that paves the way for him or his successlor to become a dictator. They can't just stand by and let that happen, they have to try. And the trial will bring the evidence to more viewers, and may change public opinion.

If people don't bother to look at the evidence, or, having seen it, do nothing, then they deserve a dictatorship.

When people look at evidence, what they see is never the same as what someone else sees. I see an vindictive Democratic Party out to persecute the President because he won the last election.....I also so a handful of arrogant 'lefties' who have hijacked the Democratic Party, and forced it toward impeachment of the president. The 'lefties' are so arrogant, they didn't believe they would fail. They have failed, and the country has to pay the price for that failure. No one is reasonable any more. It's almost become a duel to the death. So sad.

I can't speak for any democrat, but here are some of the reasons why I think he should go, and I think the harm spreads beyond America...

Why a little insurrection is no big deal to Republicans

Thom plus logo If their true scam is admitted, the GOP could wander in the wilderness for two generations

It seems inexplicable.

A group of Americans invaded the US Capitol with a plan to kidnap and kill the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, hoping that would throw the Electoral College vote to the US House, where Republicans would declare Donald Trump the winner.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
