|I do believe impeachment will come sooner or later. I think it's at least more likely than not, though I do have some doubts given how some of the GOP have all of a sudden changed what they said earlier. (Even Pence, who previously said: "Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional." in December 2015) There's a lot of nefarious stuff going on in addition to the headline stuff, so I holdout hope. Nearly 50 republicans are needed in the House of Representatives and 19 republicans in the Senate, so it will take some time. The House members will see protests in their districts that they will not be able to ignore and the Senate should come on board sometime after. With Pence, there are more normal politics involved. It's beyond what we have seen in modern times, but still mostly politics. He will not be able to get away with overturning marriage for all and separation of church and state gets blurred sometimes, but there will not be enough turnover on the Supreme Court to overturn that founding principle. With Trump, it's beyond politics. What Trump is doing is not political and both sides of the aisle are starting to stand up for what is right. People may disagree on political policies, but not founding principles. I have hope! But if he doesn't get impeached, people will stand up for what's right every step of the way.|
I want to try to avoid taking too much about it here, focusing more on the science stuff that is attacked. I don't really consider this part political, but some might. There's the normal back and forth in politics, but this is very different. And also, facts do need to remain things that are facts. An odd statement, but one for the current times.
