Her op-ed went on to issue a warning of sorts, explaining, 'I have seen dictatorships around the world, where blind obedience is the norm and truth-tellers are threatened with punishment or death. We must not allow the United States to become a country where standing up to our government is a dangerous act.'

Have a browse through this "defection collection". I'd hardly call it an eye opener, because mine haven't closed for nigh on three years, but in light of information like this, all one can wonder at is this narcoleptic audience of deterioration called the Senate, and perhaps consider abolishing it.

It's rather like the "House of Lords", in Great Britain, who swallow whole the notion that preference has a place in a democracy like ours. Here, there are no Lords, are there? And why do they get the Last Word on anything?

The founders did their best to structure our Government, but it ain't set in stone. In fact, it's set up to change with the times. "Go ahead, change it!", they said, "Here's how!"

Don't abolish the Senate, but make the Senators Representatives of the States like they were before 1913.

I think she had a perfect right to resign if she did not agree with Trump's policies or actions, and, equally, Trump had a perfect right to fire her for the same reasons.

I've searched online to discover exactly what the "smear" attempts against her were, and the only thing I was able to discover was that people in the Ukraine, principally Giuliani and his team, were sending messages back to Trump that she did not support him, which seems to have been true charge, not a smear. Also, as far as I have been able to determine, the only "danger" she faced was that of being recalled. That's the only one she, herself, has referred to, I believe.

Perhaps she's correct in her evaluation of Trump, but her evaluation seems to have little to do with anything that happened in Ukraine, either to her or anyone else. As far as I can tell, the articles don't give any substantiation to those charges, either, most especially to, "I have seen dictatorships around the world, where blind obedience is the norm and truth-tellers are threatened with punishment or death. We must not allow the United States to become a country where standing up to our government is a dangerous act."
