FLOWER MOUND, TX — November 23, 2019 — Can’t beat him? Impeach him!   In my not so humble opinion, the dilemma we face as a country is the political process in which people form loyalties to one party or another and, in many cases, display more loyalty to that party than to the country they’re supposed to represent. I understand the need to join a group that feels the way you do on numerous issues. If you vote for people who support abortion, open borders, gun confiscation, free healthcare and higher taxes, you’re undoubtedly a Democrat. Contrarily, if you’re pro-life, pro-building the wall, pro-2nd Amendment, support a healthcare system that’s affordable and want lower taxes, you’re certainly a Republican. While every patriotic American can have either of those views, it’s important to keep in mind that, in the final analysis, we should always place our country first and be prudent spenders of taxpayers’ money. 

Now, it seems to me that if you’re the average free-thinking person you probably don’t agree with every issue of the party to which you belong. Maybe you believe a woman has the absolute right to abort the child in the womb, but, you’d like to have a wall built on the southern border to stem the flow of drugs and human trafficking. Additionally, you think there should be limits on gun ownership, but, you don’t like the idea of tax increases. That makes you half Democrat and half Republican. Does that mean you should join the Independent Party? If so, would you only be voting for candidates on issues, rather than political philosophy?

Although that sounds like a rational idea; wouldn’t it depend on how strongly you felt on the individual issues? In other words, if you’re a rabid pro-choice advocate; would you let that one issue impel you to vote Democrat? Conversely, if you’re a fervent believer that every child in the womb is worthy of saving; you’re most likely going to vote Republican. The same would apply to other issues. Generally speaking, people latch on to one or more topics and they set their minds in stone as they opt for the party that satisfies their closely held beliefs. That’s the reason why no Independent Party candidate has much chance of being elected. 

Therefore, we’re left with a choice of 2 visions for the future of our country. And, if you’ve been paying attention you know that the choices couldn’t be clearer. On the Democrat side we have presidential candidates who, almost unanimously, have embraced socialism with all its obvious defects, including the provision of free healthcare to everyone, including illegal aliens. Moreover, we’re told that if we disagree we are (take your pick) racist, selfish, greedy, brutal or just plain inhuman. The fact that no amount of money could pay the tab for all that free stuff doesn’t matter when you’re running for political office. The fact that you have such good intentions is often the only qualifier. 

My analogy for free healthcare goes something like this: Suppose I told you that you have the right to dine at an elegant restaurant whenever you’re hungry and it won’t cost you a dime. Sounds fabulous! Problem is, every time you go to the eatery it’s filled to capacity and there’s a line outside that stretches about 5 miles. You’d starve to death before you got seated at a table. Hence, for all intents and purposes, there’s no free lunch at that place. Yet, demagogues will promise you anything if they think you’re naïve enough to believe it. Of course, if they should get elected on those promises, they’ll merely explain that, after further study, they must revise their original premise. At the point they don’t care because they’ve already been elected. Has any elected official ever been tossed out of office for not keeping his/her campaign promises? 

What I like about President Trump is that he has actually kept most of the promises he ran on. Furthermore, those he hasn’t kept are because Democrats have been throwing obstacles in his path since he took the oath of office. Even so, he’s been a strong enough leader to pass important legislation, got 2 conservative justices confirmed to the Supreme Court, continues to build the wall, provide a robust economy and stands up against the entrenched system of corruption in the nation’s capital.  

For having the temerity to make America great again, President Trump has been the subject of left wing scorn and abuse for the first 1000 days of his presidency. He’s been the most successful Chief Executive in recent history; yet, radical Democrats want to impeach him. Why? Because he’s proven what a common sense leader can do when he eschews political correctness and stands up for the values upon which this great country was founded. Nevertheless, the overriding reason is, as radical Texas Democrat Rep. Al Green said, “I’m concerned that if we don’t impeach this President, he will get reelected.” That may have been the first time in his otherwise mendacious life that Green uttered the truth.

      1. Correct, we do not live in a democracy. Remember only 7 of the 17 county seats were actual elections. And in those cases I use the word election very liberally. This is a corporatocracy, for business, by business. And both parties keep it that way.

  1. Here are just a few of the crimes Trump should be charged with WIRE FRAUD, TAX FRAUD, BANK FRAUD, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE 10 COUNTS, OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, CHARITY FRAUD, SOLICITING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM A FOREIGN NATIONAL, RECEIVING ILLEGAL CORPORATE CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS, COLLUDING WITH THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER TO SQUELCH NEGATIVE STORIES, PAYING A PORN STAR TO WITHHOLD INFORMATION TO BENEFIT HIS CAMPAIGN, ACCEPTING ILLEGAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO HIS INAUGURAL COMMITTEE, COLLUDING WITH THE RUSSIAN MOB, ABUSING THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE BY EXTORTING A FOREIGN NATIONAL TO DIG UP DIRT ON HIS DOMESTIC POLITICAL OPPONENT, VIOLATIONS OF THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE for those of you who think Trump has saved America from socialism … you are parroting right wing garbage. You don’t even know what socialism is! Clinton may have been a terrible candidate but she wasn’t an unhinged authoritarian wannabe who has early stage dementia who refuses to read his policy briefs, who undercuts his military, who has no regard for the checks and balances contained in the constitution, who claims the press is the enemy of the people. You folks are simply deluding yourselves, acting like members of a tribe and not like patriotic Americans interested in preserving what the founders created and that is a Republic based on laws where no one is above the law.

  2. Trump 2020! Some triggered posters on here need to go to their safe rooms. I love this country and love this president. I’m looking forward to Donald Trump’s second presidential term. Donald Trump lives in the White House!

  3. Mr Weir doesn’t get it ….Read “A WARNING” just for starters. Trump has abused his power and made the US a mockery around the world. He wanted to bring down Biden so he held up 400 million in congressionally appropriated military aid to Ukraine until the President of Ukraine, announced an investigation into the Bidens and the 2016 election. That is unacceptable behavior from any chief executive. But beyond that Trump has trashed our institutions our judiciary the notion of oversight by the congress. He has obstructed Congress by refusing to produce evidence and allowing those with first hand information to appear including Pompeo and Mulvaney. This is a President who hasn’t drained the swamp More people around him are either in jail or have been dismissed for ethical lapses than any administration since Warren G Harding. Trump has elevated authoritarians around the world Putin MBS Kim and Erdogan while denigrating our European allies. Those who support Donald Trump are complicit in the destruction of the US democracy. They are cult members who believe that God sent Trump to the US to 1. keep it white 2. keep out black and brown people 3. own the libs meanwhile the deficit is 23 trillion, more farmers have gone bankrupt than in 40 years and only the very wealthy have benefited from the tax cuts touted as middle class benefits. Fox news Hannity Limbaugh Ingraham Hegseth, Levin Pirro are shrill shills for Trump while they make tens of millions misleading their viewers. Weir doesn’t understand that Trumps vulgarity boorishness and lack of understanding of policy is exactly what suburban voters will overwhelmingly reject whether or not the Senate removes him. In the meantime the extent of the corruption that Trump and his family have engaged in while in office, the violation of the emoluments clause the self dealing, the failure to provide world leadership may have damaged the Republic in ways that will take decades to fix.

    1. Democrats are rabidly degenerate America-haters! They live in the greatest country in the history of the world, but, are too deranged to grasp what they are taking for granted. President Trump saved this country from the ravages of socialism when he beat crooked Hillary and upset the plans of the left to destroy heaven and replace it with hell. Thank God that Donald Trump came along and made this country even greater with his common sense policies and spine of steel.

      1. Thank you for being brave enough to say that. The world needs more just like you. I agree with every word you ‘said’. Thank God that D.J. Trump came along and saved us. #Trump2020 and beyond. 🙂

      2. Trump handed out more socialism to Business and the 1%, while telling the lie that he was making us all rich. Only he doesn’t understand that his socialism for the wealthy is unAmerican as it goes against the constitution.

        The Dems are just as bad handing out taxbreaks for corporations also and obsessed with their identity politics which will be their downfall. Look at Brodsky on this site talking about corporate welfare out of both sides of his mouth.

        All of the Dems running for president will jump into bed with the Banksters and Goldman Sachs when required.

        As long as Republicans and Democrats believe their own bull$hit and what they have been brainwashed with, this $hitty system will go on unchallenged.

    2. YOU don’t get it. Trump would NEVER use this as a way to beat Biden. LOL
      Trump is going to win no matter if Michele Obama was running. He’s too popular. There are too many people sick to death of EXACTLY what the left is doing right this minute. Dragging their feet. They aren’t doing a thing for their paycheck, while Trump isn’t taking one at all.
      you get it, yet? LMAO. YOU done been had, Einstein.

  4. Trump should have been jailed a long time ago. He is an ass for running. He is even a bigger ass for accepting the job. He will resign in a plea deal to protect him and his family. It will have nothing to do with Ukraine or Russia. Clinton escaped jail, but technology is different these days.

    1. Seriously? Jailed? For what? Not being likable? He’s an ass for running? What does that even mean? Does that mean Biden is an ass for running? That man has no idea what state he’s in, much less try to be a president. Holy Moly!! And is Hillary an ass for rigging the election and losing? Id say yes. At least we all got a good laugh about it.
      So, Trump runs and he’s an ass, he wins and is an ass for taking the job he applied for. So is he an ass for not taking a paycheck? Of course not. Hes saving the taxpayers some money. That would even be YOU, ya nut.
      THINK before you open your ignorant pie hole. He will never resign, so get a job and get out of your parent’s basement. Maybe you will be happier. You’re too angry. SMH.

  5. It’s scary what Democrats have turned too ! NY is on the verge of bankruptcy thanks to the socialist agenda by cuomo, stewart- cousins and shelly mayer

    1. Exactly. Thank you for giving us your honest opinion. Democrats are angry, mean and vile. And we have to wonder why. Is it Just because they lost? They’ve lost before and not been out of their minds like this. Guess they better take an aspirin. They are gonna lose at least once more. Trump2020. 🙂

    1. No kidding. I almost break out in a sweat every time I catch them in a lie and have to call them on it. Which is all day long, I might add.
