Who are the ‘bad guys’?
Jim Gier suggests that we examine history and facts to understand why Democrats are the bad guys.
Well, here goes: Actually, the present day Republican Party is largely made up of and influenced by, former “bad guy” Democrats.
The switch was made in the ’70s led by Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina. It was a rebellion against the passing of the Civil Rights Act, that terrible piece of legislation, which granted equal status to black folks and others. Every state, which was once solidly Democrat, suddenly switched over the Republican Party where they were warmly welcomed and remain so today.
Now, with reference to impeachment, it is similar to an indictment by a grand jury calling for a trial. If the accused party is found guilty, the punishment is removal from office. No president has ever been found guilty in such a trial. Richard Nixon (that great Republican) escaped a trial by resigning the office.
Finally, Ted Turner has had nothing to do with CNN since 2006 after it was sold to Time Warner. It has become the most respected and honored news organization in the world.
Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News, on the other hand has been found guilty of “hacking” personal e-mails in order to get information for his network.
