America on the Verge [OPINION]
When Special Counsel Robert Mueller was unable to present evidence of criminal wrongdoing or intent on the part of President Trump in the Russia collusion witch hunt, he said his investigation was unable to vindicate Trump because there was no evidence to prove that the president had not committed a crime.
That's the twisted logic the left masquerades as justice when the evidence doesn't fit their narrative. If they can employ these types of tactics on the president and leader of the free world, just imagine what they can do for deplorables like you and me when we, say, refuse to hand over our guns or our wages.
As the U.S. House of Representatives prepares to vote to impeach the president in a blatant effort to overturn the results of the 2016 elections and tries to prevent him from winning re-election in 2020, we need to contemplate the seriousness of what is about to occur. If the left is successful in removing Trump from office, the Constitution will have been shredded in the process.
Appearing on CNN last night, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-California) said of Trump's refusal to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry, “We can only conclude that you’re guilty.” Swalwell continued, "In America, innocent men do not hide and conceal evidence. They are forthcoming and they want to cooperate and the president is acting like a very guilty person right now." The walking Ken Doll obviously didn't read the 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He would have been a hit in the Soviet Union.
I shudder to think of an America where extremists can subvert the law to nullify elections and persecute their political opponents and their supporters. We have a Constitution to define and protect our rights. We also have the Electoral College to keep tyrants such as these from gaining control of our government. It worked to protect us in 2016 and now the extremists are attempting to dismantle it.
Stay strong, deplorables, and remember our friends in Virginia. America is on the verge.
