Castanza Posted May 19, 2019 Share Posted May 19, 2019 There has only been one person in government (within my lifetime) who I have respected. That person is Ron Paul. In my opinion, he will be the best President we've never had. As of the past few years there has been another that I've come to respect because of his (Justin Amash) bipartisanship and most importantly his ability to adhere strictly to the constitution. Today, Mr. Amash came out with his opinion on whether or not Donald Trump should be impeached. He feels that he should be impeached. Do I like POTUS? Not so much. Have I defended some of his policies and positions? Absolutely! Have I criticized his policies? Absolutely! Do I think he should be impeached? I have no freaking idea. It's difficult for me to look past all the wrongs the past administrations (within my lifetime) have done and think "Yes, now someone is truly worthy of impeachment." I guess this is another reason why I respect Amash so much. He is able to look at things without a biased filter of any type, except that of the Constitution. And for that reason alone I trust his opinion on POTUS and the future actions that should be taken. This is why we elect congressional members to vote instead of voting on each issue ourselves. The average person simply isn't cut out for it. And to be honest , the average member of congress isn't either. Surely if the GOP begins to follow the lead of Amash (the smart ones will) then there is going to be serious uncertainty in the market. Really curious how this will affect trade talks and tariffs over the next few months. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/republican-rep-justin-amash-says-trump-should-be-impeached/2019/05/18/be3c3b3c-79a6-11e9-bd25-c989555e7766_story.html?utm_term=.764f8a73cf9b Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
