View Full Version : What concerns me more than Trump

The Republican Party has supported him without question.

He nominated a lot of unqualified people to cabinet positions, but THEY confirmed them.

There were not two GOP senators with enough integrity to refuse to confirm anyone to a stolen Supreme Court seat.

They hold meetings to make laws without inviting anyone from the other party.

There was a bi-partisan immigration bill that would have passed, but Boehner wouldn't let it have a vote.

When Obama was being sworn in, the GOP was developing as their strategy to block anything he tried to do. 438 filibusters, I believe.

All the attention Trump is getting is a distraction from the rest of the GOP

You've certainly got a point, John.

As Gerarddm's signature line states: Next election, vote against EVERY Republican, for EVERY office, at EVERY level. Make Lincoln great again.

Collectively, they suffer from a perceived victimization, of being marginalized unfairly. More than a decade ago they realized that they were unable to win anything like a majority at any level of government if they were willing to settle for a fair, democratic election. Thus, the cries of voter fraud (a dog whistle excuse for exclusive voter registration rules), the need for gerrymandering (yes, the Dems do the same), reducing the number of poling stations and/or the sudden deployment of road repair crews to produce impossible detours around what poling stations that might remain. They'd love to be able to instate a modified form of the 3/5 rule, where it would apply to anyone not voting Republican.

Coming from this GOP "Normal," it's not surprising that the GOP collectively is totally committed to winning at any cost, regardless the cost. They simply MUST retain power. The destruction of the institutions of Republican Democracy is considered acceptable collateral damage because in the end, they'll be the ones calling the shots once the dust has settled.

None dare call it treason, except Oznabrag and I.

And I've been asking as to when that line is crossed.

……...cue several million dollars in lawyers fees just to determine when an 'enemy' is an enemy, and when 'treason' is treason.
And don't expect much clarification from Government, Congress or, ultimately, the totally political USSC.

What concerns me even more are the voters who vote for those miserable creatures.

Chopped liver?

Not at all, Garret!

It isn't, it's a huge tent.

Room for everybody!

Well, except those who believe in the Mendacious Messiah.

Which line? The legal definition is quite narrow.
