The majority of the Republicans that voted to acquit Trump are hours later speaking out about Trump’s lack of morality and how there should be further inquiries and possible legal actions regarding his violations of his office. Some say he should not be able to hold public office.
That is some fairly disgusting public evidence of cowardice, hypocrisy, and political party over all else by those who are charged with representing us. You want to see cowardice … there it is, in person!
If courage is a competency of leadership… there are few leaders in Congress… and an overwhelming amount of fear.
“Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles. Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances. Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it. Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.” – From Martin Luther King Jr.’s autobiography.

As always a great and meaningful Post.I can’t believe or understand the lack of our elected officials can not do “The Right Thing”. I hope I’m still around in five years to read the History of “The Trump Years”.
“The Grand Old Gang” must be so disappointed and ashamed!
If only the “Sheep” in Congress would be made to watch the “The John Adams HBO Mini series” and see and hear the Courage our First Congress had, perhaps they would get a spine.
