When the Mueller report comes out, even if Trump is linked to so-called "process" crimes and nothing else, the first message I'm sending to my Republican congressman is, that he already let Flynn, Manafort, Cohen, Gates go down and you didn't go to bat for them, are you now going to let Trump be above the law?

I posted this video last week and it got zero feedback from anybody. WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED? Everybody wants to whine about the problems with our democracy but nobody wants to recognize what's broken and the steps necessary towards fixing it. When you look at the YouTube comments, everything is sooooooooooooooooooo predictable. Righties automatically hate it because it's an actress and Hollywood is full of pedophiles and corrupt (I'm exaggerating...sort of). Lefties love it because it recognizes what's going on and has some sensible reforms to fixing it, regardless of who the messenger is. The tax voucher is just one AWESOME idea that GUARANTEES that each candidate will campaign for it instead of relying on PAC money and wealthy contributions.

.

And for the record, the DNC did not cheat Bernie. He lost the primary by almost 4 million votes. Hillary actually beat Obama in the popular vote by 286,687 in 2008, to put that into context. You can't cheat 4 million votes, no matter how many times you try to falsely claim that illegals voted in droves.

Donald Trump is the symptom of what's rotted at the Republican Party over the last decade, i.e., they overreacted to Barack Obama, a good man who pushed for compromising solutions time and time again, to the dismay of his base. Did Hillary make mistakes? Yes, she did. Is the left EQUALLY to blame for electing a despicable human being as the role model for our children and leader of the free world? Oh heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllllll no!



I've seen this shared a lot on Facebook but didn't watch it till you posted it again. Thank you, great video and I agree on all points. Make the government accountable and then we won't need to even have contentious threads like this!

Hopefully it won't disappointing. What about, Finding Steve McQueen?

Because it'll never work, it's pie
in the sky thinking. It would open
the door to even more corruption,
not less. Our political system
isn't 'broken'. I've been hearing
that crap since I first voted in
1968. Anybody who says they
have a better way really means
they have better way to get
'their people' elected and screw
everybody else.

I love how she says we're in the
place we're in now because we
had two of the worst candisates
in history in 2016. LOLOL!
Hillary was the most qualified,
they said. She was the smartest
woman in the world. She could
do no wrong. So she lost and
now she's a pariah? What a joke.

And Trump is a GREAT president,
he ran a great campaign. He was
one of the best to ever run, not
one of the worst. He bested 17
others to get the nomination,
she acts we had no choice but
him. Because they had no choice
with Hillary, they were stuck with
her.

Well, maybe it has been broken since you first voted. Guess I wouldn't know; that was a bit before my time. I really don't think most people were thrilled with the candidates. I know I sure wasn't. I heard the phrase "lesser of both evils" more times when picking candidates than I have ever before and that was speaking about with of them.

I watched the entire video. I was okay with it until the usual slant came into it--all kinds of stuff that sounds like H.R. 1 with nothing about keeping voting clean with respect to knowing that everyone who votes was eligible to vote, the vote was cast legally, and in the right place.

Maybe part of the answer is to stop paying retirement and great benefits to members of Congress, and the President for that matter (Presidents will make money from speaking and writing books anyway for the most part). Monitor how much wealth they gain in office to make sure they aren't selling themselves to the highest bidder. I hear at least one of them is trying to give Congress a raise in order to "increase diversity".

Federal judges have ruled against the Trump administration at least 63 times over the past two years, an extraordinary record of legal defeat that has stymied large parts of the president’s agenda on the environment, immigration and other matters.

In case after case, judges have rebuked Trump officials for failing to follow the most basic rules of governance for shifting policy, including providing legitimate explanations supported by facts and, where required, public input.



Quote:

“What they have consistently been doing is short-circuiting the process,” said Georgetown Law School’s William W. Buzbee, an expert on administrative law who has studied Trump’s record. In the regulatory cases, Buzbee said, “They don’t even come close” to explaining their actions, “making it very easy for the courts to reject them because they’re not doing their homework.”

Two-thirds of the cases accuse the Trump administration of violating the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), a nearly 73-year-old law that forms the primary bulwark against arbitrary rule. The normal “win rate” for the government in such cases is about 70 percent, according to analysts and studies. But as of mid-January, a database maintained by the Institute for Policy Integrity at the New York University School of Law shows Trump’s win rate at about 6 percent.

And the Dem that survives the 2020 primary will regret the day the won the primary. They will be blamed for failing to beat the “worst” President ever. The problem will be they offered a vision for America only a few crazies actually believed in. Most legal Americans don’t want Free stuff, they want to earn what they have. They don’t think Republicans want to kill gays, linch Blacks and starve Grammy.

It’s a losing strategy and any sensible Dem candidate won’t survive the first debate where it will be a race to the bottom to offer the most free stuff.

I would like to think most people on here see that as well. But TDS is stopping them for thinking rationally.
