Republic or Monarchy? We May Find Out Today


                                       Good Day World!

I'm nervous.

The senate trial to convict Trump may end today with no witnesses called amid a blatant partisan cover up.

If that happens, McConnell will call for a vote to acquit Trump, in essence unleashing the most corrupt president in our history.

I've lived through two other impeachment trials and never felt the country was in more danger than this one with Trump.

How can anyone think Trump won't continue to interfere in November's election? Get real. He was caught and impeached for abuse of power - looking for dirt on his political opponent - and obstruction of justice, and it hasn't stopped him.

Does anyone seriously believe Trump will have learned his lesson, and will try to avoid future election meddling if the trial ends today? 

The GOP senators will have given him a free pass to destroy our democratic electoral system if they don't make this a fair trial now.

The truth hurts.

But it doesn't hurt if people can be deceived into false narratives for why Trump held back aid to the Ukraine. GOP senators are willing fools more concerned about their job than in saving the republic.

Benjamin Franklin was once asked, "Well doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" 

"A republic, if you can keep it," Franklin replied.

Will this be the day Americans lose their republic?

Will this day be a day of infamy when Trump ascends the throne and we have a monarcy?

Time will tell.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
