Looking for A Hero

 I’m not a Democrat or Republican.

I’m gonna try not to bore you by repeating the statements and arguments of the last few months, the lines have been drawn.

President Trump’s Ukrainian adventure benefited Donald Trump.

The vast majority of the witnesses who have testified, were appointed by the Trump Administration.

The majority of blocked (Executive Privilege) witnesses are Trump appointees.

While Trump denies any wrong doing, his Attorneys led by Alan Dershowitz said he did do it, but so what!

The Republican Party has become the Trump party. Membership requires members to be loyal to Trump.  Expectations of Loyalty is not realistic.

While Trump has most of the GOP electorate on lock.  Many members of the House and Senate are troubled by the President polices and the gutting of what was once known as the Republican Party.

Going against this popular President could damage or end a career in politics.

So many wince, to live another day.

I believe, when Adam Schiff spoke last week.  He speaking directly to the conscious of the Republican Senate.  I believe he was saying  ,you know this wrong.  

“You can’t trust this president to do the right thing, not for one minute, not for one election, not for the sake of our country. You just can’t. He will not change and you know it.”

He went on say “History will not be kind to Donald Trump,”

The other question is will History be kind to the Republican Senate who voted to keep Trump in office? How will members can explain what they did, knowing what they knew?   With the majority of the nation including some members of the Republican Party wanting witnesses, how will they spin their decision?

There was a glimmer of hope, when four Republican senators considered joining the Democrats to demand witnesses.

These are dark times for America and darker times if your a Conservative Republican. Individuals who have spent years fighting for an ideology that has been largely dismantled by a self adsorbed President.

American needs a Hero, it needs someone, who will place country before party.  If twenty Republicans stood together, it might change the course of America.  If they all stood together, they would permanently rid its party of a cancerous tumor.  But that’s my fantasy.

America needs a Hero, from the Republican Party.  Not a retiring politician, but one who will be their next week and week after.  Change often starts with one voice….

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
