President Trump should be thankful for living in the United States of America, still a free country. If he had been living in the Napoleonic era his eyes would end up staring blankly into the sky from the bottom of a basket. Napoleonic era – WikipediaGuillotine – Wikipedia
The Senate impeachment trial facts are convincing, yet most Republican Senators look the other way. The trial is about free speech. One side uses free speech to spread lies. The other side uses its freedom of speech, to tell the truth, How can the justice system, or anyone uncover a lie? The GOP remains loyal to Trump. The GOP’s silence about domestic terrorism is deafening!
“Hannah Arendt spoke about extraordinary cases in which an entire society is being lied to consistently. She said that the consequences of such lying are “not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie – a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days – but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows.”
The Republican-controlled Senate does not want to support impeachment. Why do they want to hang on to the lies that have been spread to the voters? What are they afraid of, truth?
Speakers at Trump campaign rallies have been spreading the lie about the election being stolen from Trump by the Communist-Democrats until they have millions of people believing and got them mad enough to riot.
The truth could start a massive new lawsuit. Thousands of people will want to share in a class-action suit. They will all claim they went to Trump campaign rallies as innocent voters and came away feeling the election got stolen from Trump. The Republican National Committee could be sued for every nickel it has.
Who knows? In this crazy world, that might be why there are so many Republicans remaining quiet. Just like the church in Germany remained quiet until Hitler came after the church, then it was too late. We have to live with our decisions, that is why truth and words matter so much.
The United States, as we know it, could start to heal with the truth. The people could remain divided and filled with hate for years to come if the lies remain.
