It is often accredited to Albert Einstein, as the one who said, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Watching the impeachment-happy Democrats brings that saying mind but for many, it has already become a song played one too many times.
Maybe it is because we have all become rather numb to it. Perhaps many of us have begun to turn down the volume on the story ( or non-story if you will), about the impeachment of the President.
Don’t feel bad if that is you, it isn’t like you don’t have a viable argument based on that premise!
In fact, taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, your decision to “tune out” the ongoing impeachment news could appear smart, and very sane.
On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. That is as of this writing, 2 years and 3 months ago.
If you prefer, that is 27 months and 5 days or 825 days. Any way you try to say it, what it means is that the Democratic cry of “impeach” has gone on for far too long.
Truth be told, those murmurs and impeachment seeds started even before the President was sworn in.
Now, after more than two years, there is still no evidence, no reason or no grounds that have been deemed as, impeachable.
It is no secret that the entire Democratic party was shaken to its core when Trump won the Presidency, but at some point, we have to let go. Sooner or later we must get back to the business of running this great country.
At what point do we finally say it is time to lay this battle down and begin fighting real problems?
At three years? Another 6 months… ever?
What really makes these futile efforts so awful is that they actually require time, money, and effort. That is for those pushing this agenda, the President and his team defending these attacks and for the citizens of the United States.
President Trump recently responded to yet another round of impeachment cries by tweeting:
“How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russia, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?”
It doesn’t stop there, however, because this is President Trump we are talking about.
The President did more than challenge the very credibility of the impeachment effort as another story reported. Trump also has cited using the Supreme Court to defend himself and fight these seemingly endless challenges.
This is where the aforementioned effort, work, and money becomes real.
Here is where it stops becoming hot air and begins costing us real money, valuable time, and energy wasted.
This is the type of nonsense that pulls our elected officials and our President from the things that matter.
We have borders to protect. We need to stay vigilant against terrorism today. We need to keep creating jobs, fighting for gun rights and most importantly, we need to continue the work of “making America great again.”
Creating chaos, embarking on witch hunts and spending more than half of a Presidential term trying to find some wrong-doing, is not getting the job done.
In fact, it is actually preventing, delaying and keeping us from doing the job at hand.
Unfortunately, that is why we can’t continue to ignore the repeated assaults on the highest office in the land. If it wasn’t costing us progress, betterment and hindering the goals of our nation… but it is.
It has been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. So we have to ask, don’t we?
How much longer before these efforts to impeach President Trump officially become, a diagram of insanity?
