It’s all just a silly fantasy. Trump won’t even lose the next election, but less be impeached. America is truly lost.September 27, 2019 at 8:00 pm #853378ktfranParticipant
Agreed. The husband and I just discussed this. Maybe he’ll get impeached in the house. It won’t get through the Senate. His fucked up followers will think he’s being treated unfairly and they’ll come out in spades to vote for him. The more dems try to take him down, the more people will rally.
Again, I hope I’m proven wrong but I think we’re deluding ourselves if we think he doesn’t have a good chance of being re-elected.September 27, 2019 at 8:07 pm #853379BittergaymarkGuest
If I had money. Or was young and pretty — I’d leave. Being a sex worker in a foreign land would be far better than staying here and watching america turn to shit in slow motion.
Funny. All it would really take is just one person. One lone person. Doing the right thing. But nobody will step up to that plate. And so . . . ALL is lost.September 28, 2019 at 8:34 am #853396LisforLeslieGuest
A group called “republicans for Rule of Law” is running ads in specific areas (Tennesee, Vermont and others) directed at Republicans up for re-election asking them to stop putting policy above law.
Not sure if it will make a difference but it would appear that even members of the GOP are hitting the panic button.September 28, 2019 at 8:55 am #853397
Jeff Flake (coward) says there are at least 35 R senators who would vote for impeachment in a secret vote. That’s cowardly but it’s a start. I do think the dam has broken and now they’ll be trying to save themselves.September 28, 2019 at 3:02 pm #853401Part-time LurkerGuest
One important thing to remember about impeachment is who’s next in line. Pence. While Trump is a rabid dog, Pence is an insidious cancer.September 28, 2019 at 3:18 pm #853402
Right, I know that, and agree Pence is way worse, but Pence is implicated in everything Trump is, so he could go down too, or resign. #presidentpelosi.September 30, 2019 at 10:35 am #853502BittergaymarkGuest
Pence has zero charisma. Nobody likes him. He is little threat. Once Trump is gone, the masses will quickly turn on him.September 30, 2019 at 11:02 am #853506courtney89Participant

Yep, this. 100% true.October 1, 2019 at 12:33 am #853526SaraGuest
When I feel similar to BGM and others I channel my energy to what I can do instead. Not sure what states you live in but mine is a swing state so I’m volunteering to register people.
Even though it’s small I feel like doing something makes me feel better. There are also phone banks, post card drives, letter writing campaigns, and canvassing opportunities.October 1, 2019 at 4:58 am #853531
Yup. We live in Boston which is dark blue, but my parents went up to NH to canvas in 2016. They went door to door in some neighborhood with another couple they had just met. No one’s going to turn my dad away from their door – he’s the type everyone stops to ask for directions. Anyway, NH went blue by the tiniest margin!
