    1. @Tate Chasers NYC and LA metro areas are only 10% of the population, they’re not going to ‘run the country’. They’ll have 10% of the vote. As they should.

    2. To that end, what do you think of dissolving the union into 50 sovereign entities and starting over from scratch ? Surely there are enough bright minds among us to come up with a more responsive system of government. What we have now is clearly not working.

  1. This new trouble with Quomo was executed on behalf of Trump too. Sad we the Dems will demolish our own trying to be morally sound. Look at Al Frankin

    1. @Patricia Reynolds It came out a short while after his death that the fire extinguisher story was probably incorrect, but they’re still not sure exactly how it did happen.

    2. I agree. I think they for the most part want to do what’s right, I just think they over do it at times. Al Franken is an example of that.

    1. @wcwright44 54% of white women voted klan in 2016… trump did not get there by himself.. lots of introspection is needed.

    2. GOP SENATE & GOP CONGRESS is BROKEN on LIFE SUPPORT and VERGE of DEATH & EXTINCTION. THEY WILL NEVER STAND UP & ALWAYS PROUDLY STAND BACK ON ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT PUTS AMERICA FIRST. THE GOP is the PARTY that MAKES AMERICA LAST; A DISGRACE to ALL Other Countries and USA Closest Allies: The GOP STANDS STRONG FOR MAKING: THE UNITED STATES MILITARY LAST, UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY LAST, THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION LAST, UNITED STATES RULE OF LAW LAST, UNITED STATES ECONOMY LAST; GOP PARTY IS THE PARTY OF the SPINELESS, SILENT & WEAK – REPUBLICAN (GOP) PARTY is AGAINST ALL THAT THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN IS BASED UPON.

    2. Well, the government could be governed like a family, one small unit, pay the bills, provide health care, shelter, food, etc., get rid of all political parties and have a board like a company, no doners, no casino run Wall Street, keep it small, simple and practical, would save trillions of dollars and lives, no more corporate doners or political parties call it the government of USA Flowers or something positive and bright because what this government has been especially run by Republicans these past years, the lies, the waste of money free humungous tax gifts to the rich one percent well it ain’t working well. Stop the insanity and go big a new world with open arms the good of humanity this land is your land and my land…this world is our world, maybe things would turn out better for the human race.

  2. Trump built a base on hate, tainting our high offices, ie, police, FBI, immigrants…he crested divides plural. He spoke to this division and fueled it and grabbed who showed up. Then he began lies that fit with the ugly divide he created. With lies and off world…

  3. I will tell you what’s wrong with the soil of America.
    It’s all the manure that they spread over on Fox News.

    1. Absolutely! Add to that Newmax, OANN, Steve Bannon, Rush Limbaugh, etc. They are being funded to disseminate dis-information, in order to brain-wash the uninformed!

  4. Remove money from politics. It’s what is corrupting the people in office. They should run on merit, not money.

    1. @T D They had a system to do that. We don’t. Canada has a single branch of government, the house of representatives which holds all the power, and it can be attacked by the voters if they’re unhappy and replaced with new people. We have to overcome the non democratic senate and supreme court so changing things is near impossible. They call these checks and balances and we’re told they’re good things. They are not. If the will of the people in a democracy is not heard, eventually they will revolt.

    2. @peter baxter You’ll have to argue with the constitution about that. The Supremes are nominated by the president, and either confirmed or not by Congress. The process is specified as the job of Congress in the constitution. There’s no direct “democratic” say by “the people.”

    3. @peter baxter You clearly either are not Canadian or you don’t have a clue how the Canadian government works. Canada has four branches of government, the Crown, the Supreme Court, the House of Commons and the Senate. (There is no Canadian “House of Representatives” …. that’s American). We don’t vote for an all-powerful sovereign every four years. The American one rules by Executive Order Decree because the two legislatures cancel each other out, are in permanent gridlock and can’t make law, anymore. Our head of State has little (some) political power and Canadians vote for a Party, not a Leader. Currently, the party in power has a minority of the seats in the House of Commons and they stay in power by negotiating with other, smaller parties. The plug could be pulled n the current government at any time. It has not been as no one but the dimmest bulb wants to have a General Election during a world-wide natural disaster and anyway, the opposition has become so flimsy and weak that an election tomorrow would just give the government a majority, anyway. We can always kick the bums out and over the last half century, Canadians have fired their governments about every ten years.

    1. Where’s your $2000 stimulus from dictator Biden? Democrats are just as evil and self serving as the worst republicans.

  5. The GOP has been dismantling the administrative state for 4 decades. Let’s all stop pretending that the GOP has any love for democracy.

    1. Majority of the Senators who voted to acquit Trump were his co-conspirators in the insurrection, they participated in the big lie and by implication in the attempt to overthrow the constitutional order.

    2. You’re referring to the dismantling of democracy solely in the hands of Mitch McConnell. A cancer upon our government.

    3. GOP SENATE & GOP CONGRESS is BROKEN on LIFE SUPPORT and VERGE of DEATH & EXTINCTION. THEY WILL NEVER STAND UP & ALWAYS PROUDLY STAND BACK ON ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT PUTS AMERICA FIRST. THE GOP is the PARTY that MAKES AMERICA LAST; A DISGRACE to ALL Other Countries and USA Closest Allies: The GOP STANDS STRONG FOR MAKING: THE UNITED STATES MILITARY LAST, UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY LAST, THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION LAST, UNITED STATES RULE OF LAW LAST, UNITED STATES ECONOMY LAST; GOP PARTY IS THE PARTY OF the SPINELESS, SILENT & WEAK – REPUBLICAN (GOP) PARTY is AGAINST ALL THAT THE GREAT UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN IS BASED UPON.

  6. In the past 30 years, the republicans have won the popular vote one time so this country clearly favors democratic policies.

  7. The cogs of government are broken, it’s time to rebuild the law to serve it’s people and not political self-interest.

  8. The soil the Republican Party grew out of is easy: at first Right Wing Talk Radio and then Fox “News”. For over 40 years now…

  9. Republican Party searching their souls? More like searching for their souls, absent so long they are apparently no longer missed.
