    1. BC says the Republican cannot win with 46.9%. Right now they are way under that figure after so many left them following Jan. 6th. Republicans only hope is to wash the Trump stink off but that’s going to take time and a lot of soap.

    2. That’s why they are pushing the voter suppression laws so hard.

      Can’t earn a vote? Just suppress one instead.

    1. It’s not what they ‘believe’. They know Trump couldn’t win a fair election.

      So they want to end elections.

    2. When have you called Obama the former President? instead of President Obama? When was Biden called former VP Biden? instead of VP Biden? Bias much? There is no such title as “former” President or VP. If they carry a number they are that President or VP (unless becoming President) for life.

    3. @Jason Boyce On the contrary lol, the whole reason there is an audit is because AZ and many more states to come have reason to believe the party that is not up on Mount Rushmore is trying to make themselves more important than they really are because they cannot win a fair election and have to insert themselves by force through fraud. I can say this if you are claiming the 2016 was not a fair election after a two year investigation on tax payer money says it was fair. Projecting your 2016 conspiracies on the current audit does not help your case. Where’s our two year investigation? while you point that conspiracy finger at everyone except at the mirror?

    4. @AnimeFanNo3 Wow what a strong argument! Trump is telling you it was and you STILL won’t believe it.
      That’s how you sound.

  1. For a party that hates cancel culture, they sure love canceling members of their own party who disagree with them

    1. @Reason You wrote: It’s the same concept for any politician. If the people who put you in power don’t like the way you’re leading they can remove you from that leadership role.

      So that means if you are voted in the majority you can do what you want. Stack the Supreme Court. Use Reconciliation and give a huge FY finger to the minority. And the Justice department can investigate anyone they want. Hopefully put the January 6th terrorists in prison for 20 years. What did Bush call it? Oh yeah political capital. Thanks for bringing that up.

    2. @lance carona: Correct. And if the people who put them in power don’t like it (in that case, the voters) they can remove you from that leadership role. Like we did to Trump.

    3. @Reason The problem is that there really is no legitimate reason behind the removal. She’s essentially following ethical rules of being a Representative. No one else is being removed from being a Representative for breaking them.

    4. @Ronald King: Saying things that most of her party disagrees with and not leading the party where they want it to go isn’t a legitimate reason to remove her? (Not that I agree with Republicans here. I think Cheney is correct in what she’s saying). But most of her party doesn’t. Also they can’t remove her from being a Representative. She holds a leadership seat in the House Republican Caucus. THAT is what they want to strip her of.

  2. In 2016 Lindsey Graham said: ”If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed…….and we will deserve it.”

    1. @Ellis James Ever since Reagan has it been out in the open, however i. TRUMAN pointed out how Republicans didnt care about the people
      Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home — but not for housing. They are strong for labor — but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights. They favor minimum wage — the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all — but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine — for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing — but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing — so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

  3. Moscow Mitch didn’t vote to convict tRump and he’s right back up to his old tricks.

    1. Mitch Meconial did not vote to convict President Trump twice because the Democratic party could not make a case after the kangaroo court the first time and the Posse hanging on the second try!

    2. @Richard Christian The posse hanging? The only gallows I recall seeing is the one constructed by the insurrectionists.

  4. It’s amazing to me that most of Republicans in Congress are guilty of sedition and are getting away with it!

    1. @Mman Heh, reason I stated it that way. Is due to everyone being born without intelligence. More or less malleable to the influence of everything around them.

      However, some take the ignorance all the way throughout their life. Hence, the second part, have they always been. I figured this is a fair enough way to word the question given the circumstances.

    2. @Your Mom What kind of example are you setting by being a disinfo-spreading halfwit and failing to use any punctuation whatsoever, someone’s mom?

    3. @Your Mom Dude! I went to school. I learned there. Why would you not know what sedition is?

    4. @Ashlynne Shain Right on! I have had hate in my heart, but it’s a feeling I never want to hold onto. It really must be exhausting for magaheads to maintain such a level of agitation. What an empty life they must lead. Sad.

  5. As long as the U.S. Republican party continues to preach or tolerate ‘the big lie’ they will continue to lose their voters in massive numbers.

    1. @Gabe Dudley No, a party cannot live on an absolute lie. Half of GOP voters are just not THAT stupid. Your party is shrinking in numbers but growing louder with insane screechers of lies. Just because they scream it, doesn’t make it true. Just because you are yelling louder only shows you are only growing in decibels, not voters.

    2. We can only hope, and write our senators and representatives and share our views. If an elected official becomes invaluable to the outsiders (the voters) then the insiders (elected officials) will have a rougher time.

    3. @JJ Strumr my party. Oh thats right, anybody who questions the obvious propaganda is a republican trump supporter right? I guess that makes them white supremese qanans too? Here is the reality. It was never about trump unless you are indoctrinated by the leftest propaganda. Then your mind is consumed my him. Its about a currupt government establishent that has been around long before your hate of an orange man.

  6. Depends on what the definition of stolen is. If stolen means your candidate got destroyed because of tweeting, golfing, and rallies then yes, election was stolen

  7. Liz Chaney aside, it’s always a “former” GOP leader” that speaks out against trump. Are they the only Republicans with nothing to lose? Are they the only Republicans not on some blackmail list?

  8. The only ones that are still on the election are total psychopaths, let them rot in their own foolishness, the rest of us have a life to live.

    1. They had a.easy out and did not take it. The money they’re making is too good. Sad and scary.

  9. At one time the GOP used to have ideas, it wasn’t just about currying favor with the ignorant and misled. That was a while ago.

  10. Sanity to the crazy people looks like insanity, how do you change something that won’t change?

  11. “Former GOP members” are all vocal now. I wonder if they would have the balls like Liz Cheney if they were serving members?!

  12. Two things to know. “A liar is worse than a thief”. “If a thief steals from a thief, God laughs”…

  13. DAD ALWAYS SAID — “If you’re going to steal, don’t take more than you can carry.”

  14. Dear Barbara, with all due respect to you, you must have gone crazy if you expect such steps from that orange pack. Liars and criminals like them will never do that. And that’s the raw truth.
