10. I agree that delay is a mistake

This is the moment to address the undermining of our way of government by this administration. If we let it go, don't focus hearings, don't get maximal Congressional powers to conduct them by making them impeachment inquiry hearings, forgo a major platform to inform the public, then we aren't paving the way to reasserting a democracy. Democrats have failed to press the issue before, with elections like Al Gore's and John Kerry's, and with other matters, and that hasn't worked out well. Speaking as one person, I think we are right on the brink of being too late on opening an impeachment inquiry. If the House acts after Memorial Day, ok. If not, it will feel like a tragic error either in judgement or in what I'm not sure. Because our whole ship is now off course and could fail. None of us can really know what will happen with an impeachment inquiry. But I think I already have had it with Democrats being weak in the face of an onslaught. We went all out in the midterms to put the House in a position to effect change. They've passed a lot of legislation that can't get past the Senate. Nice show. The public knows a little about that, but not enough to carry the day, and it shouldn't carry the day. Because I don't know about you, but I worked in the midterms to stop the sinking of our democracy into autocracy/oligarchic dictatorship. There is a mandate for that. If the case for the need to act hasn't yet been made, then open an impeachment inquiry and make that case.
