I'm so tired of feeling helpless.

Pompeo is lying his face off on CNN this morning claiming Iraq wants the US to stay there right as they approve to expel all US troops, then he says the retaliation and death of American citizens is no big deal and "just a little noise."

The entire Executive branch is run by war mongering, corrupt idiots and there is nothing we can do to stop them for at least a year. We can't survive another year. These people need to be removed now.
We need to be in the streets demanding their resignations and removal from office. All of them.

1. Exhaustion, we all have it here at DU, but

thankfully we do have DU, a sane place to go to express our horror, dismay and now fear, with this rogue insane so called president. Yes, we need to protest! I think as spring and summer rolls around we will see lots of protests all across the country. THEN, come November...we can VOTE this maniac out of office!

2. I do feel a little helpless that decisions are being made by an Executive Branch and Political

party that I didn't vote into power. But I still have my vote. I still have my voice and my fingers to tweet
and post online. I'm encouraged by the increase in the numbers of people that approve of Impeachment. Given that the majority of U.S. citizens are now woke I'm encouraged that if we're
willing to see this through we can achieve a Happy Ending in more ways than one. That's more than I could've hoped for not too long ago.

3. Going into the streets will accomplish nothing...consider every election as life or death because it

it is and vote blue no matter who. It will be a different world if we support our elected and our candidate by getting out and voting.

4. I Am Hopeful about the Growth of The Peace Movement

I am hopeful tonight when I see growth in the Peace Movement. People are waking up to the disaster that are our wars in the Middle East. I went to a demonstration Friday and most people were between the ages of 20 to 40. That is a first. Also I think the media is turning against these wars. If the Democratic Party has room in its big tent for this, then we can win big! I see people on MSNBC that are getting fed up with the economic waste of war and looking to use those resources to benefit our people.

5. Let's stop saying, "Of course the Senate will not convict the President"...

and work to convince enough Republicans that, in light of Trump's latest actions, we must use the vehicle of impeachment and conviction to get rid of Trump and his minions now.

The first step of this process has already been accomplished!!!

Let's rise up and convince all of our senators to do their duty to protect the future of our nation and the world.
