To my several friends on the Democratic side of the aisle, here is my advice for the coming weeks: Be very leery of any elected representative who will tell you what you want to hear… instead of representing what you have asked them to do.
The House has voted on the articles of impeachment and their job is complete (save the few who will act as managers (read: trial lawyers) in the Senate). It is time to send the articles to the upper house, and any elected House of Representative official should not care what happens next (unless of course there is a political / personal agenda). This is why we have a separation of powers in the US Constitution, and why it takes BOTH chambers (upper and lower) to remove a President. So, if those elected to represent you don’t perform or don’t know how to accomplish their basic job function … how can they be trusted to do anything else?
The fear mongering by political hacks (and wanna-be commentators on social media) over Judge Cavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court is just – ridiculous. The man is a jurist, with a proven track record. It’s not like he’s an unknown with no experience. Please, for the love of all that is good, learn what a judge is supposed to do. (They are to interpret the law, period … they are NOT elected nor supposed to make a side feel good about themselves or their life choices.)
Listen folks … truth time: This is what happens when you go 20-30 years of not teaching/enforcing basic Civics in high school … you get an entire generation of uninformed citizens who have shallow roots and little to no understanding of why our Republic works the way it does. You also get a generation of people who will blindly do whatever someone says because their reactions are based on feelings … and not ethics, morals, or even facts!
For the love!!!!!
