Albert Einstein was not just a genius when it came to science. He was a genius of of the human condition. One of his most famous quotes is the following:
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
I can’t think of a better quote to sum up the hideous fact that you know who was acquitted today of both articles of impeachment.
But in spite of the fact that the majority of Republicans continue to fall over themselves to curry favor with you know who, there were a few who stood up for the country and the Constitution.
Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was the only Republican in the Senate to convict the President for abuse of power.
If there was a way to thank him in person, I would. While his fellow Republicans put their careers and their conscious over the voters and the country, Senator Romney did the opposite.
What concerns me is the precedent that the acquittal establishes. Today’s ruling says that the President is above the law. He or she is not beholden to the same legal boundaries as the rest of us. He or she may also sell the office of the President of the United States to the highest bidder, whether they be foreign or domestic.
After today, one thing is clear. We must vote in November. If our Senators are too chicken to get you know who out of office, then we, the voting citizens must do so. This man and those who enable him are a menace to our country. I can only fear what he may do with another four years in office.
