To Impeach or Not?

In 1923 a charismatic leader along with his associates attempted a Coup.  It was called the Beer Hall Putsch. It failed.  He was tried for treason, found guilty and sentenced to five years in jail.  

He served only nine months.  In those nine months he wrote a book, Mein Kampf.  Upon release he enlarged and built the Nazi party to begin the “Third Reich”.

The second impeachment trial of Donald John Trump and its outcome is unimportant because it fails to realize the real danger.

That danger is Trump’s supporters within the government by insurrectionist senators and house members whose sole goal was and is to seize and control power. 

Outside of the government the followers of Trump’s propaganda continue to follow him and try to take power by any means necessary.

Let’s be clear.  The real danger is not Trump, but the person his followers will next to choose to follow.  The person will be the one who can convince the Trumpsters that they understand their victim status, and that they alone can bring about the change that Trump promised but failed to deliver.

The Better “Final Solution”

The “Final Solution” was the term used by the Third Reich under Hitler which was designated to be used for the extermination of the Jews.  The Jews needed to be exterminated as the “scapegoat” for Germany’s problems and the economic drain on German society.

The decreasing and eventual elimination of Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and aid for veterans is the Republican Party’s “Final Solution” in the tradition of Ayn Rand.  The Republicans view the poor, sick, elderly and veterans as no longer having productive lives.  These other citizens, the Republicans believe, are the cause of the economic strain on society caused by the programs supporting them.  These other citizens paid for these programs with tax dollars from their years of work, service or, in the case of veterans, to their death for our country.

There is a “Final Solution” that would be beneficial to the Republicans and those they want dead and gone.  It would be a win, win solution.  They need to pass laws that make euthanasia legal for those who are terminally ill, economically not viable or have the desire to not be slowly starved to death medically or financially.

The tax dollars needed to support these “others” will be greatly decreased or no longer be wasted on programs like Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security or veterans.  Those tax dollars could be used to decrease the debt caused by the tax breaks on the wealthy and endless wars.

Is there less morality in allowing the suffering of these our citizens to continue while we blame them for the trillions of dollars in debt that continues to mount under this and past administrations?  Is it not the decent thing to allow them to free themselves with dignity from a  slow agonizing life and death?

A final solution, not by governmental economic starvation; but with human dignity would seem preferable.

Some would object to euthanasia on moral grounds.  Let their arguments be heard as long as they stop imposing THEIR “final solution” upon our fellow citizens.  Can they support one “final solution” and oppose the other “final solution” without hypocrisy?

Is euthanasia the better “final solution”?
