Remember lies when Novembers arrive
The White House said President Trump doesn’t “read.” Well, it looks like the Republican Party missed its reading class, especially when it comes to our Constitution, Bill of Rights for all, Rule of Law and Webster’s Dictionary definitions:
Treason — the offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm its sovereign, treachery.
Sedition — incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government. Any action promoting discontent or rebellion.
One hundred twenty-six House members and 19 Republican state attorneys general endorsed the Texas lawsuit in an attempt to invalidate millions of American votes in the battleground states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It’s like we have to ask the 126 Republicans in the House and 19 Republican attorneys supercilious generals for permission to vote in our home state.
Federal judges and U.S. Supreme Court justices have ruled against all of Trump’s baseless lawsuits, and to top it off, these judges and justices were appointed by Presidents Bush and Trump. Can you imagine that?
Are the Republicans guilty of any of the definitions above or are they just trying to destroy or undermine the freedoms of our democracy?
I’m going back to reading and listening. Doesn’t any of Trump’s base read newspapers or watch “all” the news channels on TV? This is really scary.
If there are any more future violent protests going on, will the National Guard have to be activated like when the college students were protesting the Vietnam “no win” War?
The American people should remember the four years of Trump’s lies and chaos when they vote in November 2022 and 2024. Remember the Novembers.
