I didn't say we shouldn't be able to impeach. What I said is it seems to be a partisan affair, not a rational or reasoned one. As it is now it is a sham. Or a shame of a sham, or is it a sham of a shame? None of them should be above the law, but it appears few of them aren't. Sort of, IYSWIM.<quoted text>
We need the ability to impeach the president even if it is expensive (it's not). I am not in favor of reducing our freedom for any reason, certainly not just to save a little money.
If the president, any president, is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, impeach the bastard and make him or her pay for it.
This is a product of a party system, especially a two party system. The founding fathers knew the pitfalls of parties yet acted in a fashion to develop them. Seems to be a natural inclination. Likewise there seems to be a natural inclination to villify the opposition to the max, often in a fashion that defies reality while completely ignoring the scum floating around in one's own party. Almost, as in damn near but not quite, to the point of deification of one's own party.
The lunacy we've got today isn't at all new. People were violent and aggressive from the outset. Pistols at dawn!
