If the articles are deemed unconstitutional and the impeachment is defeated on that basis in the Senate, the whole process is moot as I heard the scholar.

You are right. I wish I found this article before wasting time finger pounding on an old i-pad and the link is easier to read and much easier to follow. :)

re: BillT@10:45AM

Whether Trump's policies can permanently alter the course of The Machine is hard to say. There's a lotta inertia in these matters and for all I know the invasion of the Third World into the First and the ongoing destruction of traditional American culture and industry was baked into the cake. Most of the rest of everyday legislation, tax policy, fights over EPA standards on the margin, the 1000's of smallish regulations and laws, are ephemeral.

Even a levee built from young constitutionalist judges might have no effect if the underlying mass of people aren't themselves interested in the Constitution.

The main Lesson of Trump is more educational than anything I think. The overstrong position and political beliefs of MSM, internet monopolies, various identity groups, the nation's federal police and intelligence services, were all flung into the face of average schmoes for the first time. If everyone comes out of this with a more accurate idea of the philosophies and power of these other branches of government, well, that's enough.

The Lesson of Trump.

Good points. Moving toward the parliamentary system? Just have the legislature hold a vote of no confidence, then hold a quick election, and get yourself a new government. Heck, have two elections per year to get want you demand. Now, to change the Constitution, you need 2/3 of the Senate and 3/4 of the State Houses. 3/4 of the State Houses? Another reason to get rid of the Electoral College and move toward “democracy”. Heck, let’s get rid of the Senate while we are at it.

re BillT 1141am - The casual reader of these pages should always note the absence of any progressives' comments on real issues facing Americans and Californians. They focus mostly on their 'hate Trump' campaign snark. And issues like California leavin' are vehemently denied since it illustrates most clearly the effects of their decades of socialist governance from Sacramento, and totally contradicts their narrative about what they have done to the Golden State.
