I feel that I have come to understand this impeachment process. I doubt if this understanding would rise to the level of an epiphany, but none the less.
The people in our nation's capital do not like this President. He has insulted everyone in Washington and everyone that has been in Washington for the last quarter of a century. If there is anyone he has not insulted, I feel it was an oversight. Do not worry, he will get to everyone. This group of elected and nonelected officials do not do well with criticism and mockery. They feel they are far too important for such rhetoric. Members of both parties have been insulted numerous times.
I feel it is humorous that many in this group will tell us that they are rolling up their sleeves to work for the American people. Most of these folks do not look to me like they could change a flat tire or operate a riding lawn mower. Rolling up their sleeves to work hard, now that is a classic.
The pressure that the President has put on this group has raised the use of terms such as "Armageddon" and "Constitutional Crisis." Predictions of total economic failure and World War III have not come to pass. Along with insulting this group, he has also embarrassed them. This is totally unacceptable to the elites in Washington. It has become obvious they do not handle pressure well.
I do not feel the President is a likeable person, but a change was needed in Washington. I find it humorous that many of the policies that he proposes are in line with the opposite party, but if it comes out of his mouth it is not acceptable. This is a true indication of "Team" politics.
As I talk with some of the wonderful people of Franklin County, many of them say, "I just want the government to do their job and leave me alone. Get rid of burdensome regulations and let us pursue life, liberty and happiness." Henry David Thoreau is credited with "The government is best that governs least." We see very little sign of that philosophy in Washington today. This seems to be a simple request.
There is a certain entertainment value in watching some of our so-called leaders. Think of what could be accomplished with just a little bit of cooperation.
