I do read and listen and watch. I watch the News in 5 languages, read the news in 3 languages, I was alive and studying Revolutionary and Early American history when Mr Nixon was asked to leave. I am NOT tring to alter any Americans political veiws, I dont live there and its none of my concern what conspiracy theories are believed or not.
I only know what is said on CNN, ABC, CBS and Fox News, as well as EWTN as far as US news media is concerned. But I also know from RTV (Russia) and CCTV (China) and France Carate (France) and the BBC and BSkyB think of what is being done. I even watch El Jezzera and Iranian PressTV, so I dont just pick up titbits floating in the either. My past job was analysis of FACT and gossip for a Government arm, so I do a lot more than just pick and choose.
Impeachment is your countries standard, outlined in the Declaration of Independance and Constitution not mine. I may be old but Im not that old.
All I said was the people mentioned had not been impeached for criminal activity by the second arm of your Government the Congress, nor by the third arm The Supreme Court. Nixon was.
Hold on there, Patrick, before you get so defensive.
You offered an opinion in a forum about Abraham Lincoln that you thought Richard Nixon was worse (or words to that effect). Some of us pointed out that Richard Nixon was in no way nearly as bad as Abraham Lincoln. You started out your reply to me with the words, "All I know is..." (which implies, I don't know much, but from what I come across from your news sources, et cetera, et cetera).
I then state, "It sounds as if you are picking up bits of information that reach you from the US (or words to that effect)" and you get defensive and storm back here telling us how smart you are.
And I point out the lack of logic in your argument. If impeachment for criminal activity is the standard, then you would have to put Bill Clinton up on the list near Richard Nixon. This of course wouldn't make sense, because Bill Clinton did not push the role of the presidency anywhere near the point Abraham Lincoln did. So the argument using impeachment as a standard did not (and does not) make sense. (And I suspect that you like Bill Clinton, and probably don't remember what you were doing in December 1998 when the Articles of Impeachment against him were passed by the House of Representatives.)
Impeachment is hardly a metric to measure how good or bad a president is, regardless of how well you might remember it.
