    I gather the legal opinion is that he can be tried AFTER he leaves office, and in fact the impeachment itself could even be delayed. The POINT would be to:

    1 Make sure he can never hold another public office

    2 Reduce the post-presidential expenses by order of $couple of million per year (worse?)

    3 And of course make it clear that enough of us care about democracy to make it happen.

    Impeaching Trump for the second time is not about punishing Trump; it is about sending a message to the next wannabe dictator of the United States that such ambitions will not be tolerated.

    To those Republicans who want “healing” by not punishing him, who say that they don’t want to “upset Trump’s base,” I say put the political bullshit aside. Not impeaching Trump is is capitulation to the rioters. It affirms that the violence, the deaths of people, the intimidation of elected officials and their attempt to undo the Constitution was justified. It perpetuates Trump’s lies and when Republicans lie, people die.

    Appeasement never works; ask Neville Chamberlain. His “peace for our time” lasted a couple of months and went on to kill millions of people.

    The best thing for everyone concerned, including Trump is for him to resign. That would be good the nation, but Trump has never been interested in doing what is good for the nation.

    Well.. the first one didn’t take (and look at the consequences) so there is little chance that the second one will. Take a lot more than a needle to stop trump.. in days of old they used a silver stake.. kind of frowned on today though

    If the Republican’s don’t convict on this crime, they should be viewed as accomplices and removed from office also.

    If he’s impeached and convicted, it would be more of a “deep cleansing” for the nation.

    Trump would refuse – he thinks he’s already immune from impeachment, as well as any negative consequences of his actions…

    He’s going nowhere. The fascist support for him is not exactly taciturn.

    Trump doesn’t care about being impeached again. Going to prison, kicked of most social media sites and losing PGA golf events at his clubs is what makes him worried and enraged.

    I have encountered an interesting development over the last few days. While i eschew reactionaries and radicals, my friends and members of my family range from liberals through conservatives (REAL conservatives, not the reactionaries who abused the conservatives and moderates of the Republican Party by pretending to just be a different flavor of conservative like the Nazis did to German conservatives in the 1930s before they turned on them, too).

    Recently, conservative friends are asking me what I suggest that they can do. They are seeing big problems but feeling lost because they can not correct big problems.

    So, to others who have not yet asked anyone each of these questions but are wondering about them:

    Rediscover the main stream media and follow more than one station or one paper. It has to fact check; retractions indicate responsibility. If you don’t encounter fact checking then try others instead. Undermining trust in the media is one of the major tools of dictators.

    Not ready yet? Then begin with non-partisan fact checkers. The two very best are probably Politifact and Fact Check:

    The other really important thing you can do is something that good parents do all the time. In fact, one of the people who asked me is among the best parents I know.

    You set limits, realize when those lines are being dragged too far, express displeasure about and to those who try to manipulate your limits and you decry the public figures who do so. It seems small, but it really adds up when a lot of people do it consistently. It was the major tool set when liberals set limits on radicals in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Although it takes time and vigilance, it works.

    When you talk with friends and with family typically the problem is the message rather than the messenger, so judge the situation and phrase your wording accordingly.

    You can turn off the radio or tv stations when they put on reactionary talking heads, and let their advertisers know that you will purchase from their competitors because they finance reactionaries.

    Be aware that it is easy to just flow along with things you are hearing instead of thinking about them. The written word gives you a better chance to pause and realize when an argument is illogical or manipulative. You owe such critical examination to yourself and to our nation.

    When a friend or family member expresses support for a reactionary you can express displeasure about the reactionary being supported. It does not have to be a long statement or an angry one. It needs to be firm.

    You can refuse to vote for politicians who are reactionary or to enable reactionary candidates. If you want, you can vote outside your party based on what you learn about candidates and their voting history (rather than promises which are often self-contradictory hot air). Otherwise, you can simply withhold your vote from the bad candidates and vote only for others. You do not need to vote on every row of a ballot.

    When enough people tackle the small problems then usually the large problems can be avoided; that is not always true, but usually it is.

    What will happen to Trump supporters after this? I think of roaches when you turn on the kitchen lights; they scurry under the refrigerator and into other nooks and crannies. They’ll still be there, but they won’t be seen again until we turn out the lights again like we did in 2016.
