    1. Oh and let’s not forget all the bogus investigations (Russian collusion, Ukrainian impeachment with no quid pro quo, second impeachment with zero proof that President Trump orchestrated the “armed insurrection” LOL) where Dems weaponize the judicial system and impeachment against their political opponents like General Flynn and President Trump. Total fishing expedition occurring right now by Cyrus Vance in the Southern District of New York. No probable cause just a lot of immaturity and lack of ethics on the part of the Democrats.

    2. Looked the other way as cities burned and Kamala Harris bailed out the “peaceful protestors” while the Democrat Party raised money. LOL. Yeah but Dems are the ones who aren’t aggressive. You have to be completely brain dead or have no sense of self-awareness to believe that big pile of bovine waste.

    3. @Al Jirou you mean the Republican senate intelligence reports that stated russia and trump worked together

    1. @Frank Dorner having no parties would allow people to vote based upon the individual, furthermore would allow the people to see whom is financially backing/endorsing each candidate for each position. This would hopefully lead to less politicians, and more individuals that focus more upon the subject matter they are targeting to fix.

    2. @Frank Dorner you are one of the few people who seem to understand that both parties fighting is the real problem. It has become less about the good of America and more about winning as though this is a game or something. America seems to root for their favorite team regardless of what that team stands for. This goes for both parties.

    1. @M VB Come to Lebanon, Oregon and wee will make those trumpsters pay, I promise I’m not setting you up lol.

    2. @M VB Sure, republicans are trash, but locking people up is the way they do things. It’s not the American way. A few republicans have committed sedition and should be jailed, but we can’t lock up every ignorant fool that voted for them.

    3. @Mister Hat So you’re saying Cheeto voters and those who believe the crap Marjorie Taylor Greene says should be free to spread their hate? How is this nation going to heal and move forward?

    1. @A black socialist You’re a fake progressive. Don’t call yourself a progressive anymore. Progressives don’t claim your kind.

    2. Well Leon no logical answer to that one ?? Notta nothing lol hmm I have more I will gladly prove
      Trumptardism 11

    3. @ScottCleve33 “Some people did something” on 9/11. That’s the Dems of today. You’re absolutely right.

    4. @ducati1212 Being for our country and its founding principles is not radical. Stop with the both sides do it garbage. There are the leftist Democrats who want to destroy our country and then the rest of us. THEY are the traitors and tyrants.

    1. We’re going to be talking about January 6 long, long after the republicons want it to go away.
      Oh right, we’ve already hit that point. It happened last Friday, when republicons said, “No, we don’t want to be part of a bipartisan investigation into this terrorist attack committed by Americans on American soil”.
      Consider the republicon shark officially jumped.

    2. @Gregg Chambers

      You and the ATF have lots of fun on your Ruby Ridge escapades while bringing the war on terror home to your neighborhood.

      I’m sure it’ll work out fine.

    3. @Gregg Chambers How about you talk about all of the left wing riots and violence instead. Those actually did some harm.

    4. @Ofay Hussein Fun fact. Ruby Ridge will be SMALL in comparison to the consequences the seditionists reap. We wouldn’t have a “war on terror” in our neighborhoods if we didn’t have GQP terrorists, you know!

  1. Ugh. “Our problem is that we’re too nice and too sweet, and too good-looking, and just very good boys and girls and we’re just too perfect, inside and out. Agh!”
    Narcissists.

    1. If you were listening he said that democrats care more about decorum than policy, and that’s what makes them ineffective.

    1. They always were the kinder compassionate people. Republicans have always been very aggressive and stop at nothing to get what they want. Dems need stronger people like AOC and Katie Porter Stacy Abroms. The older Dems are Corporate owned. We need young strong people to stand up and do what the old Dems did would not. They would not have won the election and 2 Senate seats if it were not for young and people of color.

  2. Term limits for all politicians. Both Democrats and Republicans. Three terms is more than enough.

    1. @Beezow Doo Doo Zoppity Bop Bop Bop Why is it that we the citizens can put initiatives on a state ballot but not a national one? Do we not have the same rights to control what our leaders in Washington do as we do to “override” our state leaders?

    2. @VidWatcher1X They don’t actually DO anything either. They just talk and talk and talk. I wish I got paid for just talking. They let lobbyists write the bills, have their staff and interns do the manual/reading/research while the ones we actually elected do nothing but bloviate.

    3. @VidWatcher1X I”ve been advocating for your plan for years. Makes sense to me. Count me in on this one!

    4. @Kirk R that’s a tough question, but a good one. Ben Franklin gave us a good warning about that, saying that (paraphrasing here, dont want to look up the exact quote) direct democracy is bad because if people could legislate gifts for themselves the system would crumble. Interestingly enough this is also a great argument against communism, long before karl Marx started penning his ideas

    5. @wily wascal I don’t understand what you think term limits mean. Like how you think it will limit voter’s votes and choices. The presidency has a 2 term limit, without a limit then the same guys can run for office EVERY election and THAT is limiting choice. In fact creating more rotation in the Senate would insure more choices and mitigate corruption.

  3. The problem with politicians is that they are indebted to their campaign donations. We as Americans, unknowingly sold our democracy to big corporations decades ago.

  4. Anybody else remember when James Carville said “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find” ?

    1. Having observed Carville for many years, I’ll consider the apocryphal “Sara Palin” answer more illustrative, and on point.

  5. I like the metaphor of bringing a soup ladle to a knife fight. We do and I am frustrated that my party lacks the courage to act with the authority and power that we gave them. They have a clear mandate and they are ignoring it. When fascism comes then we, the Dems, are morally culpable for our inaction.

  6. The lyrics go from Kenny Rogers, Coward of the County it sort of fits in here so

    “Promise me, Son, not to do the things I’ve done
    Walk away from trouble if you can
    Now it won’t mean you’re weak if you turn the other cheek
    I hope you’re old enough to understand
    Son, you don’t have to fight to be a man”

    “I promised you, Dad, not to do the things you’ve done
    I walk away from trouble when I can
    Now please don’t think I’m weak, I didn’t turn the other cheek
    And Papa, I should hope you understand
    Sometimes you gotta fight when you’re a man”

  7. My Lord, so many people follow a demented Judas goat right over the cliff. So sad America is no more.

    1. ~MSNBC is Satan’s propaganda machine. The Peacock is Satan’s symbol.
      Satan is known as the Peacock Angel Melek Taus/Shamash/Utu.
      The castrated Crown Prince of Allah/Nanna Sin.

  8. I’ve been saying this for years. Dems bring a badminton racket to a rugby game. Aikido is what we need.
