Worst of all in this tragic turn of events of the past three years, really, is Senator Lamar Alexander, who knows better, but declared that the remedy is the election season that starts this week in Iowa, when the whole point of the impeachment Articles is that he was and is determined to cheat in that VERY ELECTION.
Alexander was the Director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard, and, in an yet another death of irony, was a protege of the revered Senator Howard Baker, who famously asked the question of Richard Nixon, “What did the President know, and when did he know it?”
Without a radical redress of this impending decision not to have an actual trial, very soon, it is not an exaggeration to say that this is the beginning of the end of the American Republic, and the beginning of a system not based upon representative democracy and the rule of law, but instead the rule of the powerful and the enabling of them by that new system.
This reminds me of nothing other than the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the new system of caesars under the first of them, Julius Caesar.
Ironically, the subject of this post would be flattered by the comparison. In fact, there is nothing that he would like more.
His supporters wouldn’t mind either.
Most of them know absolutely nothing of the end of the Roman Republic, and it is largely not their fault.
Absent the election of a healer like Joe Biden, we are in for greater tragedies in this nation.
