The VAST majority of Americans
wanted NO Impeachment... What did the Republicans do? They
elected to ignore the wishes of the American People.... Now they
and their party will answer to the American People for many years
of Democratic Government that alleges to be....
FOR the People, BY the People and OF the People??
The Saga Of The Republican Apocalypse
by Ralph F. Mariano
Gotta tell ya.... Good Bad
or Indifferent, all must pay attention to what's going in today's
politics. Reps. Delay, Army, Solomon and Livingston along with
Sen. Lott (all Republicans) have proven to me just what the word
"PARTISAN" means. It's definition is no longer cloudy.
It means selfish, self-serving, one-sided, and finally,
horse-blindered. I must admit that I really should congratulate
those mentioned above.. as they will, in their rabid Republican
pursuit of President Clinton and the Democrats, just about ring in
the death knell for the Republican Party as far as the Year 2000
Elections are concerned.
Sound strange? Consider
this. The Republicans, as most know, outnumber the Democrats in
both the Congress and the Senate. How then is anything to be voted
upon that's to be considered fair when everything thus far,
relative to Clinton, has been dead on the Republican "Party
Line". For example, have any of you heard anything along the
lines of "let's wait and see what the vote brings?" I
sure haven't. The Republicans have boasted; "Clinton's
Toast... He'll face a trial in the Senate and on the Senate side
we hear Lott exclaiming "he'll get no deals here, I refuse to
support him in this current action...." Cripes, the
Republicans haven't left a bit of margin to or for democracy,
they've got Clinton all wrapped up and shucked like an ear of
corn. This is all before the actual vote. So much for Democracy
and true fairness. Again a marvelous example to set for our
country's youth. The younger set hears left and right that the
majority of Americans want NO Impeachment. Yet they see the
government stampeding toward just that! Totally ignoring the
wishes of the country's taxpayers and citizens.
Now, let's look at one of
two bottom lines... the whole shtick is over.... Clinton has been
ousted and the Vice President is in. President Al Gore has a very
special "ring" to it. Its called incumbent. Its also
called... a seasoned, well versed and very well liked politician.
Ah.... you're beginning to get the picture. President Al Gore will
be part of the Presidential Elections in the year 2000. The
Republicans PUT him there. Any of you realize how difficult it is
to unseat a sitting President running for election? Take a look at
Of course, the other bottom
line is Clinton is NOT ousted.. instead the censure option
is taken in the Senate and now we see Bill Clinton still in
Office. What has the Republican party accomplished?
They hung themselves. Oh sure, they did a number of
They made it abundantly
clear they care not what the public wishes...
They lost a Speaker of
the House (its only the beginning)
Leadership, in their Blind Zeal, brought the Democratic Party
The GOP will be handed
the most embarrassing loss they have ever endured in the Next
Now comes the loudest
footfall. This is the heavy weight. People such as myself and
untold scores of others will not forget how the Republicans
totally ignored our wishes relative to impeachment vs. censure.
Oh, how we will thank the Republican vendetta for having opened
our eyes to egomaniacal politicos and how we are now able to dump
them like so many hot rocks. The Presidential Elections for the
year 2000 will result in a Democratic majority the likes of which
this nation hasn't seen since the FDR era.
We will all owe a
debt of gratitude to the four horsemen of the Republican Apocalypse.
Delay, Army, Solomon and
They did their job
They did... the G.O.P.
