Democrats should think twice before impeaching

I do not like Donald Trump and did not vote for him. I would though remind the Democrats of why we got Trump in the first place. It is not because of Russian interference or anything of the kind. For 8 years under Obama, the Democrats accomplished nothing of substance, in their arrogance they pushed the country further and further left contrary to the wishes of the voters who they claim to value so highly. Don’t believe me, look at the results of congressional elections from 2008 through 2014.

In his 2008 Inaugural address Obama said he was going to heal the divide in the country yet he left the country more divided than ever. In their arrogance, the Democrats nominated a candidate who at best promised more of the same and throughout the campaign all I heard from her was how bad Trump would be and little or nothing about what positive things she would do.

The Democrats should look at themselves first before proceeding with an impeachment for purely political reasons. They were looking for an excuse to impeach Trump the day after the election, and Trump was dumb enough to give it to them.
