Adam Schiff is Atticus Finch

Send signed letters to [email protected]

Having seen “To Kill a Mockingbird” on Broadway and now the impeachment trial at the Senate, I find both Congressman Adam Schiff and the play’s protagonist Atticus Finch argued their case in the same closed-minded court shamelessly marching toward a predetermined verdict without intention of seeking justice.

Senator Lamar Alexander’s observation that the evidence showed Donald Trump was indeed guilty of scurrilous actions and behavior but that it did not rise to removing him from office forever damns the Republican party with dishonor.

Following Senator Mitt Romney’s vote to remove on the one count of abuse of power the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) decided to disinvite him from its convention, thereby tainting conservative ideology with dishonor as well.

George Will describes in his book Conservative Sensibility two types of conservatives; American, one who seeks to preserve the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and European, one who seeks to preserve the monarchy and church.

Call me an American Conservative. One who is ashamed the Senate chose to forswear the Declaration of Independence and give the President unfettered autocratic power of a king. One who feels the Republican Party has shucked aside its core values of honor and prudence and capitulated to the mob. One who is disgusted to be identified with Trump just because he is a conservative.

This November I will be the Libertarian candidate for Darien’s State Representative District 141. The Libertarian Party is to be the refuge for American Conservatives to resurrect true North from the ashes the GOP left behind. There is much a new party with no attachment to the status quo can do to declutter Connecticut’s accumulation of regulators and agencies holding its economy back just when strength is needed to cover the long history of irresponsible decisions over pension obligations for which both major parties can be blamed.

In the words of John Boehner, ex-Majority Leader of the House and Republican—-the Republican Party has fallen asleep and the party that exists now is the Party of Trump. A guy who has lied 16000 times in the past 3 years. This isn’t about a Democratic coup d’etat, or a Russian or Ukraine hoax. A majority of Senators felt Trump was guilty, but a majority did not find it appropriate to remove him. That’s not an acquittal. An acquittal is after a criminal trial when a jury votes unanimously that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to find the defendant guilty. At best this was a hung jury—but they also didn’t want to see the evidence…at least many of them…Could you imagine the outrage if HIllary Clinton would’ve even suggested not testifying in Congress? Pathetic—-Thanks Vincent Arguimbau for calling out Republicans. Too many Republicans have become Lemmings

Please don’t try to portray this as a good vs evil with lying on one side only. Both sides of this coin are equally fake and full of lies and ill intent. Schiff is no hero, but was part of an attempt from the beginning to overthrow an elected President who was voted in after an equally extreme President from the opposite evil generated enough reaction to put his polar opposite in office. And the liberals were determined to oust him from the start by whatever means necessary, and when all those dire predictions of a collapsed economy and violation of human rights never came to pass, this partisan impeachment is what we ended up with. And the next President will likely be a socialist as a knee jerk reaction in response to this President, and we will likely have another scenario like this as Constitutionalists will fight against a new President and Congress imposing redistribution of wealth and extremism to the left.

Trump Derangement Syndrome alive and well. Whoever counted and listened to and found something contradictory to 16,000 statements should probably have a restraining order in effect. And what does this have to do with Norwalk and State leaders fleecing our citizens?

What happened on the House side was 100% partisan and what happened on the Senate side was 100% partisan. The word lemming is defined as person who unthinkingly joins a mass movement. Anyone who thinks that the Republicans in the Senate were lemmings but the Democrats in the House were not are either hopelessly delusional, 100% partisan or maybe both.

Ever since the Bret Kavanaugh circus no one should take the Democrats seriously. Just watch a video of Sheldon Whitehouse questioning Kavanaugh if you get the chance. It literally belongs on Saturday Night Live.

It’s all swamp in DC. Posturing and catering to lobbyists. Anyone who ingests news from the right sources knows how corrupt DC is, way beyond what most people realize. Both sides are to blame but the Republicans lately have been going the extra mile to prove their sliminess. The populace doesn’t help either. I read 40% of Americans won’t buy Corona beer because of the virus breakout. Shocking how stupid Americans can be.
