America is polarized by relentless banter on radio, TV, and the internet. Mainstream media allows “talking heads” to make their case for/against impeachment by repeating the same words and phrases approved by their “corporate” bosses. It’s like watching a movie in fast motion where no one can really follow the storyline. It’s not only maddening, it’s intentional. Information overload is the perfect tool for creating followers, instead of thinkers. When people aren’t willing to listen, discussion stops, and sides are chosen. Less citizen participation means politicians get their way. The only recourse is to understand the system. After all, IT’S YOUR SYSTEM!!
When Constitutional principles are weaponized, our republic is in grave danger. Never has this been more apparent than with the recent Trump impeachment “inquiry” kicked off by Nancy Pelosi- despite the lack of the serious offenses (treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors) required to do so.
Venezuela is a damning example that under Socialism, “free things” come at a hefty price. Now their entire country is riddled with corruption, and citizen protests are commonplace. As Americans, we should all take a good look at our own government, its leaders, and the true messaging behind progressive politics, so that we don’t suffer the same fate.
