Interesting thought: Does swearing an oath before Congress that you know is a lie not meet the legal definition of perjury? Are most of the Senate Republicans risking indictment in the future, for that act? It certainly seems Mitch is. That would be pretty funny if some of these guys, as well as Trump got indicted for perjury and jury fixing.
I don't know how it doesn't unless our future fate is already set in stone right now.
I have a lot of friends who are wringing their hands about how the impeachment effort might fail, and damage the Dems.
"What if Trump gets reelected? You know McConnell will never allow Trump to be removed from office? "Never 68 votes" etc etc.
I ask all of them the same question every single time:"Show me how this magical Trump-McConnell Christian conservative authoritarian utopia works."
An entire generation is groaning under a trillion and a half in student debt, that same generation is looking at 88% of today's jobs paying somewhere around minimum wage.
Housing costs are through the roof.
Explain to me how this empire of illusion holds up, because if this is the wet dream of a handful of very rich Republicans, show me how they don't wind up bankrupt in the end, because IN THE END, if they don't have a nation of happy workers buying their stuff, it all collapses in ruin around their ankles.
So, show me how this Right wing authoritarian utopia works, because right now it all looks like a Jerry Springer/reality teevee script...where nothing is real.
I have never received a clear answer, or really...any kind of an answer at all, not in the three years Trump has been in office.
As another esteemed Ranter just said (logtroll?) ---if you ask them what they really want...they HAVE NO IDEA!
All they know is "Trump good, Dems veddy veddy ba-a-a-a-d".
Sorry but you can't build an empire on an illusion and expect it to hold up. And once the angry rich realize they were backing an illusion, the firing squad will appear faster than you can say "firing squad".
