We don't need a repeat of 2012. Republicans HAVE to show up and vote this time and NOT think it's in the bag and they don't need to go to the polls. Make sure that your family votes, encourage your friends and business associates as well. Voting is both a right and a duty and should be taken seriously.

The biggest issue here is the failure of voters to show up in 2012. That apathy has led us to where we are today. I'm just hoping that voters turnout in November and every November after to exercise their DUTY to vote.
"So, fear not my conservative friends, there are many ways to maneuver through an electorate to win elections." And the most direct way is to SHOW UP AND VOTE!!!
The only way that will happen is if Republicans and Independents want it enough to SHOW UP and VOTE. If we don't, we deserve everything we get...!

Those "others" that are "almost certain" to vote had better turn out this November and encourage their like-minded kin, neighbors coworkers, etc to do the same. The "certainty" of the 2012 Presidential race had too many people staying home because they "knew what would happen." They did - it didn't - and we see where we are today. If they stay at home again, we get what we deserve.
The DC Taxicab Commission tried to do something similar, going so far as the commission administrator setting up a "sting" and having an Uber driver arrested. They have apparently worked things out. Hopefully, VA and Uber will do the same.
This link from the Congressional Research Staff doesn't implicitly state that the Senate HAS to try it but doesn't say they can reject the articles as presented by the House: http://www.senate.gov/reference/resources/pdf/98-806.pdf Another somewhat less authoritative link: http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/thepresidentandcabinet/a/impeachment.htm And yet another: http://www.law.cornell.edu/background/impeach/impeach.htm None of these say the Senate can demure the trial aspect of the proceedings.
Can somebody please explain exactly how this episode (the latest among many) doesn't constitute "high crimes and misdemeanors?"
