Allow voters to decide if Trump should leave office

In my neck of the woods, there are immigrants from Eastern Europe. Over the last 20 years, I’ve talked to at least four, one from Russia, one from Bulgaria, and a married couple from Poland. All mentioned extreme corruption in government and in the private sector as reasons for their immigration into the U.S.

Although no evidence, as yet, has been found against Hunter Biden, his involvement with Burisma was criticized by ethics watchdogs as a conflict of interest for his father, who was still vice president at the time and heavily focused on influencing both Russian and Ukrainian politics.

There is no doubt that Trump is guilty of something and, as Clinton was, he should be impeached. But considering the complicated nature of the evidence presented, like Clinton, he should not be removed from office. And especially when considering that Clinton’s crime was far less complicated and far more clearly evident.

A far better method would be to remove him with a vote in the 2020 presidential election. But the Democrats realize that the current clowns vying for nomination have little chance, so they’ve gone the impeachment route.

Recent history (eight years of Obama) has caused economic and social upheaval in America. America’s rejection of Sen. John McCain would be one of the costliest mistakes this country would ever make in national politics.

As a result, we (especially blue-collar workers) voted for Trump because we didn’t want four more years of Obama’s policies that were promised by Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, a nation of well-fed idiots we must appear to be in the eyes of the world.
