WATCH IT! IT'S POLITICAL

It’s about integrity. When we put ourselves out there knowing our views will not be taken lightly, we can only take a deep breath, and live with our decision.


Take U.S. Senator Mitt Romney who sets himself up for a situation of major proportions. He had to vote either for or against accepting a bill in the U.S. Senate to throw the President of the United States of America out on his ear.


He votes yea for impeachment of Donald Trump.The other Republican senators, all 99 of them, voted nay.


Romney felt it was the right thing to do. And stuck by his conviction. A brave man. The consequences? Who knows.


He could not consciously vote against it. A man of principal who stuck to his guns.


Here’s an opinion piece by journalist Andrew Cohen in Saturday’s Globe and Mail.

“Before impeachment, Mr. Trump was a strongman unfazed by convention, unmoored by law and unencumbered by decorum.” It goes on: “After impeachment, Mr. Trump remains a strongman unfazed by convention, unmoored by law and unencumbered by decorum.”


Author’s comment: I heard CBC’s Sunday Morning with Michael Enright asking author, sociologist, Arlie Russell Hochschild to sum up President Trump and his relationship with United States.


Here’s what she said. “…with every challenge to his power and authority, he redoubles his effort and strikes back. So what’s in his heart now is vengeance. I fear that.”
