Skip to comments.Pelosi Says Impeachment Will Correct Voters’ Error [semi-satire]
Posted on 11/24/2019 9:50:03 AM PST by John Semmens
With polls showing voters turning against impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) told fellow Democrats that fact alone makes it even more imperative that we complete the job of removing Trump from office. We must reject the weak and dangerous suggestion to just let the voters decide whether to vote against letting him continue in office. I mean, do I have to remind you that we trusted voters to choose wisely in 2016. Well, we saw how that turned out.
The speaker urged that we trail blaze a new process for selecting a president. In parliamentary systems like they have in most other democracies the chief executive is chosen by the party that has a majority in the legislature. This strikes me as a superior method. Rather than allow relatively ignorant voters to separately elect a president, why not have the better informed members of the legislature make the final determination? We can let voters cast ballots for whoever they like. If the House is satisfied with their choice no further action would be required. The election day results would stand. However, if the voters make an unsatisfactory choice, the House would impeach and remove the person chosen and schedule a new election.
Pelosi rebuffed criticism that her proposed new process would be unwieldy or undemocratic, saying that at first it might seem so, but I believe that eventually voters would learn to make better choices and relieve the House from having to undo poorly thought out choices like the one they made in 2016. In fact, by pledging to impeach Trump should the voters mistakenly reelect him in 2020 I think we will considerably accelerate the learning process.
In related news, the House of Representatives reauthorized the Patriot Act in an emergency funding bill. All 230 Democrats voted for the measureincluding waiving the normal 72-hour period that would have allowed representatives time to read the bill prior to voting. Pelosi justified the haste saying the surveillance powers granted in the legislation are essential. Without them the FBI would not have been able to legally spy on Trump and his loathsome supporters. There must be no unsurveilled gaps going forward.

Nancy is a necessary error of the human genome.
I am the only FReeper who HATES satirical articles? I think they are needlessly stressful at first glance, and substantively USELESS and a WASTE of bandwidth!
Don’t read them.
What, in the name of all that is gracious, is a Semi-Satire?

I’m still leaning to the idea that the fascist democrats want to generate a civil war because they believe this time they will win and everyone will support them.
The only error committed by voters and their “representatives” was when the democrat party was not declared illegal in 1865, the leadership North and South was not hanged for treason, and the rest never granted full citizenship again.
This is not 1865 you shriveled bitch.
People think they’re being clever and funny, but neither really seems to happen.
Could be worse. Could be worthless Count Vlad postings that no one listens too.
You know that’s what they’re thinking...
