America is not democratic. Senators representing the public are trying to prevent witnesses or evidence at the Trump impeachment. America once symbolised and promoted democracy but today their impeachment processes undermine it. To hide facts and not hear witnesses is not at all democratic. So much for the rule of law. There are countless opinions but also facts which should be explored.
I don’t know why they don’t just approach impeachment directly. Everything must be reduced to us versus them. Indeed us versus them has been a cornerstone of US culture. Internationally the them is China, before it was Russia. Us versus them is what American culture is built on. Economically it has been their strength, competition. Anyway the rest of the world should stop holding them up as a super power. Perhaps they should be taken as a dangerous nuclear power.
