Trump is keeping his promises to his supporters
Elections are here and I am upset with my party’s (Democratic) direction. Their hatred of Trump has become a destructive obsession. Our leaders are encouraging violence and retribution against anybody pro-Trump (with the money of extremely wealthy supporters (Democracy Alliance ex. Soros) that it makes many reassess Trump. I’m old enough to remember, with disgust, the anti-union thugs and despise our leaders using and encouraging such activities. Their only objective is impeach Trump and Kavanaugh. I’m not sure of what impeachable charges?
Trump is guilty of trying to keep promises to his supporters, something few politicians really care about once elected. My party has only the leaders’ objectives not always mine. My representatives don’t even acknowledge my correspondence unless it agrees with their personal goals.
Trump’s impeachable activities: Cutting taxes? Deregulation?
“I think he did the right thing with cutting taxes and, as I said, with deregulation,” Alan Greenspan (former dir. Federal Reserve, four Presidents) said. “I think he should stand pat with that, because that has created a very obvious change in the quality of the economy. But to continuously comment, after he’s talking about the independence of the Fed, sounds to me a bit awkward. Closing the borders? Illegal immigrants are a problem in Europe, Mexico and here.
Judge Kavanaugh being a “textualist or originalist?”
The Supreme Court plays a very important role in our constitutional system of government. First, as the highest court in the land, it is the court of last resort for those looking for justice. Second, due to its power of judicial review, it plays an essential role in ensuring that each branch of government recognizes the limits of its own power. Third, it protects civil rights and liberties by striking down laws that violate the Constitution. Finally, it sets appropriate limits on democratic government by ensuring that popular majorities cannot pass laws that harm and/or take undue advantage of unpopular minorities. In essence, it serves to ensure that the changing views of a majority do not undermine the fundamental values common to all Americans, i.e., freedom of speech, freedom of religion and due process of law.
I am not interested in impeaching the president or chief justice for doing their jobs just because they are not Democrats.
