If for five long years a dog is abused, it is understand when said dog finally decides to fight back, biting its abuser. Well, the Democrats conspired and abused President Trump and his 75 million supporters year after year until the masses rose up and protested in Washington. Those scant few who committed crimes at the Capitol last week didn’t act or speak on behalf of the law-abiding people who protested.
Once again, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her cabal of anti-Trump followers want to impeach on a fictitious charge. Mr. Trump never held a gun to anyone’s head, telling them to attack the congressional offices. He said he wanted a peaceful protest, yet now he is accused of insurrection.
I guess the powers that be didn’t read the following in the Declaration of Independence, which grants us our rights to challenge an abusive government: “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such government and provide new guards for their security.”
It wasn’t the politicians’ house that was attacked; it was the people’s “house” — so who is guilty of what? The Founders granted us the right to fight back when talking has failed. I, for one, put the blame squarely on the Democrats who want to destroy our democracy.
