The United States (US) Democrats say that the reason for impeaching former President Trump is to make him accountable for the crime of seditious conspiracy to overthrow the legitimate government of the US. They say that their goal is to prohibit Trump from ever holding public office again. I say that the only reason that the Democrats are having another impeachment is to try to gain political advantage.
If the Democrats really wanted to hold Trump criminally responsible, they would allow the judiciary branch of government do what it is specifically designed to do. If Trump were to be convicted, not only would he be imprisoned, but he could never hold public office again.
Therefore, the whole circus of the Democrats’ impeachment “trial” is just to appear that they are not as criminal as the Republicans. Well, let’s see.
The US government (USG) military invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony 122 years ago. The USG, both Republicans and Democrats, have refused to comply, for the past 75 years, with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity. The USG, both Republicans and Democrats, have ignored 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Where is their difference? http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
It is up to the good people of the US to force their government to govern for justice for all. If we don’t, we will just have that same illusion that we have lived under for the past 244 years!
We the people must clean house!
