There is increasing talk here in the United States that President Trump may be impeached. It seems like a long shot to me, but the fact that Republicans are active in many of these conversations is making the possibility of Trump being ejected from office more…possible.
I said many blog posts ago that there would be a counter revolution to the Patriot Movement that would balance the forces calling for fundamental change. If you’re not a US citizen or don’t follow our politics, I’ll provide some background
When Obama became president, a thinly-veiled hate group formed primarily of white Americans. Their clarion call was America had to return to its roots, which to them, included removing Obama from office.
Public trust in the government remains near historic lows. Only 20% of Americans today say they can trust the government in Washington to do what is right “just about always” (4%) or “most of the time” (16%).
Their effort to remove Obama failed, but many of their other initiatives were quite successful. It was the Patriot movement, funded by very well-heeled people in the US, which created momentum for Trump’s election.
I speculated back when Bernie Sanders’ campaign began, that no matter how the election ended up, there would be a Democratic version of the Patriot movement, that would form to resist any White House taker who was not a Democrat.
Well, today we have exactly that. A massive resistance movement has sprung up in the wake of Trump’s win. What’s really remarkable is, that movement includes some on the right who are appalled with Trump and his followers. All this amid even less trust in government.
What does this mean for fundamental change? It simply means the world is ripening more and more, creating the backdrop for acceptance of once-thought “radical” solutions.
Hang in there. Change is coming.
