    The problem comes when you break that down by party and understanding which party controls the prosecuting body for impeachment.

    Amash is the first Republican lawmaker to call for Trump's impeachment based on Robert Mueller's findings in the special counsel's Russia investigation.
    We'll see if he's the last. It's hard for me to imagine someone as amoral as Trump not crossing a line, but it's not hard for me to imagine him being smart enough (or hiring smart enough people) to be sure that crossing is undocumented and impossible to prove.

    The offense was lying, BTW. Allegedly under oath although the judge in the case didn't think so.

    Imagine how many articles of impeachment there would be if democrats thought Trump lying was impeachable...
    It wasn't just lying though, but under oath. That's how they justified it. You need a criminal act with evidence. We'll see how it all shakes out. I still suspect the ballot box will be the determiner, but after the S.Ct. fiasco, you can understand why.

    Unfortunately, democracy doesn't have enough qualifying requirements for participation

    In particular, it makes no effort to exclude the stupid

    There should be a test in Latin and a bare-knuckle fight to survive before voting.

    Trump has created so many violations that one can get confused on which one's are the worst and then giving up on picking out the worst, they then give up and say nothing.

    Ok, that's an interesting theory to explain the ineptitude of the left - they're easily confused

    Got anything else?

    No, the one where a nominee I supported went before Congress and demonstrated a temperament unsuited to the bench, but got the job anyway. That fiasco.

    Only if you confuse that statement with the definition of democracy.

    Overwhelm the system, manufacture a crisis: Cloward-Piven.

    I've said here before that the right has co-opted for its own use tactics it used to bleat warnings about, like Alinsky and Cloward-Piven. Given that I'd been warned by conservatives many times over the years about both, it's been interesting to see those familiar ideas being used repeatedly now by the right. So after reading your postI started doing a little searching and happened by? Something from American Thinker going back over ten years ago, when the right was suffering from the Acute Obama Apoplexies:

    . . . And this is where I have to sing the praises of Alinsky and Cloward-Piven. They have given us a way to "spike their wheels." . . . .
    Thanks Saul Alinsky, and Doctors Cloward and Piven. Even if it's not the change the two of you hoped for, we might just see if your ideas really work.

    Praising Saul Alinsky and Cloward-Piven

    Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis


    So anytime the right brings up Alinsky or manufactured crisis in future, I'm just gonna laugh....

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

    So that's why the left has been so ineffective in impeaching trump - because the right used their tactics against them effectively?


    You're right - that is hilarious!
