  • Saving Our Democracy: The Second Trump Impeachment

    Posted by Kevin Villani on February 16th, 2021 (All posts by )

    As with the first, all Democratic members of the House of Representatives argue that it is their Constitutional duty to impeach former President Trump a second time to “save our democracy.” That’s the rallying cry heard often during the Trump term, particularly in response to those who suggested a desire that election irregularities be investigated. This is surprising for two reasons. First, the Founding documents are restrictive – limiting political action – rather than proscriptive, requiring political action. Second, progressive democrats have chafed at these restrictions for over a century.

      I don’t think you have the most recent version. “That when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the Party to abolish it” should read “That when any form of the people becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the Party to abolish the people.”

      I love (well bitterly) your movement from “the Democratic Party” to “the Party” – implying the first step – making a one-party state – is accomplished. I hope not, but, well, we’re pretty far into making everything political. (Is it true that Trump is banned from Spotify and one of the homemaking sites?) So the gulags aren’t all that far away.

      The Sicknick story is so weird. He’s fine after the riot, suddenly dies, reports (started by who, exactly?) that are still believed my many (most?) people about his being murdered, his body is cremated, no death report given to family. What the heck is going on?
