Republicans in Congress: Time To Walk Away

Today the big question in Washington is, will Democrats actually impeach a president of the United States without cause, without a crime? Scary, right?

But we’re told not to worry, because even if House Dems impeach, the GOP will stop it cold in the Senate. So desensitization worked. Just say “impeachment” over and over for three years until the threat that used to set off alarm bells now barely moves the needle.

But even though people aren’t up in arms, Washington’s unholy trinity, (Democrats, media, and the Deep State) don’t want their coup to look like a coup, so they gin up plausible offenses. The Deep State spies, and media lie to frame a president: Russian collusion, proven false; obstruction of justice to the Russian non-crime; and now the “whistleblower” Ukraine complaint, again debunked. Yet Democrats still demand impeachment.

But can they impeach without a crime? Fact is, they don’t need no stinkin’ crime; they have a House majority. They can impeach the president for his two scoops of ice cream should they so desire.

Is this how our government was set up, to allow one party to singlehandedly remove a president from office for no reason? Yes and no — it’s true the House needs only a majority to impeach, but a “party majority” was never the intention of our founding fathers. In fact, we were warned against two parties.

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

—John Adams

The founders setup a government by the people, now including 435 Representatives and 100 senators, to represent every citizen in every state in the Union. So a farmer from Nebraska and a stockbroker from Wall Street are both equally represented in Congress.

Well, that glorious plan blew up. Instead of 535 individual votes in Congress, we now have just two: Democrat or Republican. We’ve been herded into one of those camps because the parties are diametrically opposed on issues, so people have to pick a side.

OK, but if Democrats want to keep their “majority,” why impeach with no evidence? Why forge ahead despite the people’s opposition to impeachment and the risk to their political careers? Well, there are far bigger stakes with this political persecution than just one election. Our Republic is the real prize.

Our Constitution establishes three branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. The Founders placed limits and controls on each branch, a system of checks and balances to prevent any one branch of government from becoming too powerful.

The Constitution also allows for a president to be impeached by Congress “for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

But a process that denies the president his rights and pushes through impeachment without a crime to exert control over the president will effectively subjugate the Executive Branch to the Legislative Branch. Simply put, once Congress can remove a president from office without cause, Congress will call the shots.

Any future president will govern under the threat of losing the Oval Office unless he goes along with congressional oversight.

Presidents will be commander in chief in name only, because any military or foreign policy decision will be subject to congressional review and approval. Judicial appointments will not be limited to Senate approval; the House will also have a say. And presidential vetoes will be a thing of the past, because the president can no longer challenge Congress.

Impeachment without just cause would be a precedent for Congress to overturn presidential elections at will, thus revoking the separation of powers and checks and balances. The Left will have effectively achieved tyranny.

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
