Stop the madness. The daily hysteria from the left and the media has got to cease. This is craziness. They are turning our country into an endless melodrama and have become the laughing stock of the world.

There is no need for an impeachment investigation. You cannot impeach a president simply because you don't like him. Seeking impeachment has been the exclusive objective of most on the left since Donald Trump was elected president three years ago. They have done little else. This has to stop.

These people are willing to risk a constitutional crisis in order to reverse a completely legitimate election.

Health care, border security, immigration reform, guns, trade deals, infrastructure, and other important issues have all taken a back seat to the continuous investigations and harassment of this president and his supporters. For the love of Pete, knock it off. Legislate. Do your jobs.

I get that some don't like Donald Trump. There is an election in one year. Let the process play out and let the people decide whether they want Trump to continue or to be replaced.

Impeachment will never be successful because the Senate will never vote to remove Trump from office. There is also this crazy little rule we have in this country that you must have a crime before you can convict someone of it. You can't have a trial and then decide what to charge the defendant with.

This impeachment circus weakens our government and our nation and threatens to destabilize our economy and the other economies of the world, all in the name of political gamesmanship. The people, regardless of their political stripes, have had enough of this insanity.

Demand that Congress get to work and stop wasting our time and money on foolishness such as this.
