Thank you, my friends. What we face now may well require significant courage on our citizens' part, and to that end, we need to keep repeating the mantra of Impeach. Convict. Remove. to everyone who will listen, if we're even going to make the baby steps to put this country right again.

Though in principle, I'm loathe to adopt the tactics of the opposition, but in this case we have but little choice.

The rule of law cares little about oral sex. It should care much more about constitutional perversion that threaten our basic liberties and rights.

1998 was a smokescreen. This is a full blown conflagration that must be stopped at all costs.
