It’s shameful that NY-21 elected Stefanik

I think that knowing U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik’s support of the U.S. Constitution and her position regarding law enforcement, the congresswoman should support articles of impeachment in the U.S. House of Representatives when they are brought to the floor.

Having had time to review the events of Wednesday in the Washington and reflect on the values of our governmental institutions and the assaults thereon, she will show her true colors. Although she has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, she will see in her own heart that the president went beyond any normal behavior and is not deserving any longer — is not capable any longer of being our leader. From the viewpoint of a scion of a lifelong Republican family, her seeming to change her mind at this critical time will be acceptable.

Empathy

Elise Stefanik has been serving on an advisory committee for the Harvard School of Government. After recent events, the dean asked her to resign the committee. Stefanik refused to resign to she removed her directly. Her decisions regarding supporting trump are less than sensible.

We will soon see higher taxes on everyone. Companies that received a break under the last administration will now be forced to lower wages and trim their operations here in the states. Legislators like congresswoman Stefanik will be treasured by corporations that were able to prosper during the Trump years and they will fill her campaign chest. Thank you rep Stefanik for remaining loyal.

Yesterday I read the transcript of the President's speech on Wednesday. The news was full of "inciting insurrection". Since it was the media I decided to read it rather than CNN telling me what he said or what he really meant. Maybe the letter writer should read it too. Nowhere in that speech did he encourage violence. He specifically encouraged peaceful protest. The individuals who participated did that on their own. They saw this protest as an opportunity, as they do for all protests, to create chaos. The Democrats are acting like rabid dogs that have a wounded deer down. They are salivating as the kill is near. They are talking about cleansing the 74 million who support Trump. Ruin the rest of their lives if they can. The only diversity they don't like is diversity of thought. They wanted to impeach him 19 days after he was inaugurated. Five years of hate and division by the left is all riding on getting the coup de grace. Nothing else matters.

POUTS - Today I will lay out just some of the evidence proving that we won this election and we won it by a landslide. McConnell - Nothing before us proves illegality near the massive scale that would have tipped the entire election," McConnell said. "The Constitution gives us here in Congress a limited role. We cannot simply declare ourselves a national board of elections on steroids."

He continued: "The voters, the courts, the states – they've all spoken. They've all spoken. If we overrule them, it would damage our republic forever. This election was actually not unusually close. Just in recent history, 1976, 2000 and 2004 were all closer."

Except for that whole rights of states part. It should be up to Congress what votes to count from what states.

Oh, and let’s not go putting all the blame on Trump. There’s plenty to go around.
