Democrats Set a Bear Trap – WSJ

It is infuriating that members of America’s leadership class so often show themselves to the world as self-enriching. As a nation we spent the 20th century presenting ourselves to the world as a truly moral leader, a self sacrificing country, one to be looked up to. In the 21st century our political figures and their families too often look like scrounging grifters—Americans with connections who can be hired, who leverage connections to fame for profit. There’s a fairly constant air of soft corruption, of an easy, seamy reality of big-power back scratching.

All — almost all — politicians and bureaucrats are despicable in their corruption.

When will we realize that we don’t need “leaders”?

We do need systems that are automagic and incorruptible?

231 House Democrats Vote to Proceed with Impeachment of Trump

While the procedures are slightly D.C. insider-sounding, this vote, forced by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, represents the first time the lower Chamber of Congress has officially gone on record with regard to the impeachment of Trump, and it forces vulnerable Democrats who were waffling on whether to publicly back removal of the president from office by force on the record in support of the radical leftist wing of the party.

Interesting if this hurts the vulnerable D’s and helps the R’s in general.

The politics are fascinating.

All other issues have been pushed to the side to impeach.

Do they really think that the R controlled Senate will remove a sitting President?

It’s never happened before.

And, what will be the results to Ds of a failed  removal?

Could it be the end of the D’s as a party?

As a little L libertarian, I hope that the Libertarian Party can move up to second place as I think the D’d will dissolve into: a radical left socialist party (20%), a green party (10%), and a fragment of its former self a alternative to the R’s (20%).  Hopefully the L’s will inherit 25% of the leftover and the rest just abandon politics entirely.

One can only hope.
