Pence's inaction and Congress' foot-dragging on Trump Removal is dangerous
Trump needs to be out. As of the 6th, really, but any day since then would have been better than now, or later.
Yes, yes, he only has a few days left in his term. So what? What happened on Wednesday was literally a rebellion. People stormed the capitol with the intent to force the subversion of the November elections: it's by definition a coup. The fools chanting "USA! USA!" in the background are just too stupid to realize how ironic the chants were, while they engaged in a rebellious act against the country.
Trump is the one who incited these people. He can't claim ignorance; he's been an insider into their rhetoric from day one. He--and the people who made their petite rebellion that resulted in these deaths--are responsible, and should be held accountable.
That starts with getting Trump the hell out of there. If that isn't done it will be one (more) indication that our political "leadership" doesn't actually give a damn about our democracy--they're in it for the the wealth, the power, the ego-inflating pomp and circumstance. More importantly, if it's not done and done quickly it sets a dangerous precedent. The political class cannot be allowed to incite rebellion in the manner Trump has, and the all the delay in removal does is suggest to future Presidents that they have, and can possibly use, this as a weapon in the future.
I don't like what transpired last week. The sedition is one thing, but the potential future, without action now, is frightening. History has a lesson for us to learn: if our leaders don't take action now, they're setting us up to move in a direction the world spent its blood to defeat almost a century ago.
