When approaching the upcoming midterm elections and beyond, all members of the Republican Party up for re-election must be defeated. Trump’s political infection has reached every level of Republican candidacy, including Paul Ryan, the current Speaker of the House. He has been rolled so many times by Trump and his enablers that he has had a difficult time maintaining his balance. He has completely abrogated his responsibilities in terms of his role as a true participant in the “checks and balances” assigned by the Constitution. From city council member to county commissioner to state representative and beyond, Trump’s followers have fouled every aspect of our representative democracy. Since the beginning of his presidency, greed and corruption have been made the hallmark of his presidency. It is time to put an end to his treasonous actions. Arrest him, try him, convict him and lock him up, making certain his jailers include women, the handicapped and minorities every step of the way.
Friends don’t let friends vote Republican.
