    1. A low misinformation voter is someone who votes for one party no matter how detrimental it is for them. The right and left both do it. In fact, I guarantee that you only vote left even if it isn’t good for you. The hypocrisy of the left sees no bounds

    2. @Maximilian Houk … sorry you nitwits are the party of q-anon trailer park Scientologists and treasonous white supremacists now… clean your own house before more “butbutbutwhataboutism” excuses…

    3. @Maximilian Houk Biden would not have been my first choice for president, but I would vote for him over Don the Con in a split second. We have had 4 years of lies and a year of election propaganda from a man who would do or say anything to anyone who dared the get in the way of his bid for reelection

  1. It was pointed out that many people just vote by party line, so it’s possible that that’s how she was elected. What A crying shame.

    1. The Republicans turned into the trumpkin’s, lies and deceit are the order of day and they push hatred, to divide the masses. A sadstate in which we live in today

    2. @Cortez The Killer everybody is whining about some lady spouting off a bunch of nonsense that people know is a bunch of BS anyway. Those same people are perfectly fine with the hate and poison ilhan Omar says or a Chinese spy in the office of Eric Swalwill that sits on the intelligent committee. Where is the outrage about these house members??

    3. @Rodney Bean The Democrats don’t want to bring firearms into the Chambers of Congress. MTG and her buddy Bobert both defied the laws that are in place by sidestepping metal detectors and refusing bag checks. If you go on a commercial flight, you have to remove your shoes, belt, keys and anything metal, place in a box while you walk through the metal detector. If you beep, you get ‘wanded’. If you go into Health & Human Service office, your purse is X-rayed, and you are wanded if there is no metal detector. Why should it be any different in the House? These gun-packing conspiracy-theory spouting princesses think they are above the law.

    4. @Winter Spring no one is above the law not Republicans not liberal Democrats no politician of any rank. If everybody is not allowed to bring their pistols in then nobody should. That is why I leave my gun in my truck if you’re not permitted to carry it inside…

  2. Thanks Mr Riggleman, we need more Republicans speaking out against these lies and calls for political violence. It’s a shame there are so few Republicans in power with the courage to do so.

    1. If the republicans could face the truth. They don’t want trump. All they want is his voters. That’s quite a fall for the republican party.

    2. @Bill Robbins you are right but Trump has a stronghold on his base. To get to his voters, Republicans gotta go thru Trump

    1. Me too. There is a new party in town and Marjorie Green is the face of it. That party is the new GOP-Q. Deceptive and demonstrative like no other.  Our greatest weapon to defeat them and protect America is our vote. Reject their lies with truth. Spread the word and protect America.

  3. My family and many friends have gone to the dark side…………and they say I’m brainwashed because I spoke out against Jan 6th…………I told them I don’t deal with fascists, they are now membersof ya’ll quida and the Que Qlux Qlan

    1. Thank you for the work you are doing. I am not a Republican but I totally agree with you. There can be no talk of policy if we cannot agree on what’s being discussed and what is reality.

    2. @Nick Harley absolutely right on the bigotry trump just made it much more acceptable to openly show it and it sucks but we as a country cannot heal without addressing the problems. I’m optimistic that the vast majority will eventually learn that they were used as pawns in the name of one person when we are not a country of one person we are a country of laws. This narcissism I’ve been noticing a lot lately is just as dangerous too people who are trumpers just can’t admit to being wrong and learning from the mistakes they make. I was politically ignorant before Trump was elected it was his dangerous presidency that made me more aware about politics as a whole. I’m hopeful that things get better but without us all agreeing on what is true and what isn’t true no progress can be made.

    3. Always remember what Trumps oldest son stood there and yelled We Are Comming For You.?That ‘little oily haired Teump Jr.did not go for anyone the little Coward like Dear Daddy went back to the buncker and watched what they helped cause.People being mamed and killed.

  4. Interesting: with the exception of a handful of republicans, it’s always former congress people saying these things. I would bet dollars to donuts that if he was still in congress he would either skirt the issue or change the subject. Freakin’ cowards – the whole lot of them – selling their country for job security and power.

    1. @Dahra Brofford There is a new party in town and Marjorie Green is the face of it. That party is the new GOP-Q. Deceptive and demonstrative like no other.  Our greatest weapon to defeat them and protect America is our vote. Reject their lies with truth. Spread the word and protect America.

    2. @Dahra Brofford Yup, I mean I disagreed with the Bush administration on almost everything, but there was still a level of respect there. This new party though, making death threats to other politicians and election officials, the odd baseless conspiracy theories, it’s like within 4 years their entire party has literally gone crazy!

    3. @Sam Harris let’s pretend today Biden were to be found out that he paid Russia to help him win the election, and there is actual evidence of it, and he resigned today to avoid being impeached and removed from office (because let’s be real here, the Democrats would impeach and remove their own party’s president if the evidence showed he did it), so you believe that Biden, because he resigned, shouldn’t be able to be impeached and disqualified from holding office after he is no longer in office, simply because he reigned on purpose to avoid that fate?

    4. @Sam Harris He was still prez when process was started. What he is accused of was done while he was still prez. How is impeachment invalid?

    1. Kooks. Although GD Republicans have been the anti-science party since the time of Reagan, and they have long cultivated the lunatic fringe, making them seem legitimate. So, naturally the lunatic fringe have gained political power. They have not changed but just become more overt.

    2. There is a new party in town and Marjorie Green is the face of it. That party is the new GOP-Q. Deceptive and demonstrative like no other.  Our greatest weapon to defeat them and protect America is our vote. Reject their lies with truth. Spread the word and protect America.

  5. The truth matters above all else. Unfortunately a good portion of america doesn’t know what is or isn’t true and until the misinformation and lies are completely destroyed it’s going to be an interesting ride.

  6. The Republicans want to cut the money for education in the relief bill. We need to teach critical thinking, discerning truth from lies,
    starting in Kindergarten! Especially with the internet, this should be a core part of Education. Also, education in responsible parenting, including
    Nutrition, should be embraced.

  7. It sure looks like the requirement to being on the right these days is a degree of this out of touch from reality consperocy nonsence, just based on how the GOP leaders have responded to these Congress members.
