Once again, an irrefutable fact; Mitt Romney is the only true Republican in Washington. The remainder of those who claim to be members of the GOP have deserted their party and chosen to become members of the Trump Party. They abandoned what was left of their principles and morals and continue to bow to their fascist leader.
After his vote to convict Trump in the senate, Senator Romney explained his reasons eloquently and definitively. As he expected, the men and women who bow to fuhrer DJT began to viciously attack him for doing the right thing and remaining loyal to his oath of office. He is the only Republican in the senate and the only man to refuse to obey the demands of Moscow Mitch McConnell.
What happened last Wednesday offered a small glimmer of hope. Since Trump’s election, Republicans have bowed to every evil and harmful action demanded by their fuhrer. Only the late John McCain had the courage to criticize and defy the egomaniac’s personal agenda. Wednesday one man found the strength to tell the truth and retain his dignity and self-respect. 52 other senators surrendered their principles and violated the Constitution, allowing the worst illegitimate president in history to remain in the White House.
Fake Republicans who denounced Senator Romney resorted to the usual, falsely attack Trump’s adversaries.
Disgraced former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich tweeted: “Just remember Mitt Romney 1994: ‘Look, I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.’ Nothing surprising in today’s announcement. If someone won’t defend President Reagan they probably won’t defend President Trump.”
Representative Lee Zeldin: “Mitt Romney absolutely despises that Donald Trump was elected POTUS & he was not. The sore loser mentality launched this sham impeachment & corruptly rigged & jammed it through the House. It looks like Schiff recruited himself a sore loser buddy on the GOP side to play along.”
Senator Romney spoke of his expectation that Trump’s puppets would attack him for his actions.
“Does anyone seriously believe that I would consent to these consequences, other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?”
Since that sad day for America I often wonder what President John F. Kennedy would think about the cowardice displayed by Moscow Mitch and his minions. His famous book, “Profiles in Courage,” was a tribute to eight senators who displayed not only great courage, but their patriotism to their country. They cherished the Constitution, and performed their responsibilities to the American people with energy and pride.
With the exception of Senator Romney, a book written about Republicans in the senate today would be titled “Profiles in Cowardice.”
Now it’s up to you, the American voter, to do the right thing. Republicans have proven themselves the enemy of the Constitution and the American people. It is your obligation to stand up for your country and vote all Republicans up for reelection out of office on November 3rd.
Never forget, we, the people are the United States of America. This country belongs to us; not to a failed political party.
