I learn so many things from my @Twitter people that I did not know I needed to know.
Imprisoning a former President is the kind of thing that happens in developing countries - America should avoid falling into this pattern if at all possible. The focus should be on winning in 2020 and solving the problems that got Trump into office.
I would be happy with his complete and utter financial ruin and public humiliation once he leaves office.
I would be happy with good progress on immigration, social security, debt, health care, economy, foreign policy, etc. I don’t much care about personalities and palace intrigues. I don’t trust the current democrat party to make that progress.
I don’t hear you complaining about Mitch McConnell and how he is basically stopped every bill coming from the house. Or the reality that Trump has helped pioneer virtually no meaningful legislation or policy in any of those areas.
True. I think McConnell is doing his job. The dems have passed a lot of left wing nonsense bills in order to gin their base. They knew the senate would ignore them. The same thing happened when the roles were reversed.
Ah: the tired “they did it too.” Very different scale of suppression going on here, Bob. And even so, the GOP controlled House - before the 2018 elections - offered up hardly any meaningful legislation. Your specious arguments here do not work.
Bob, I love you man, I sure as heck do not understand your political position.
I’m a libertarian leaning free-market conservative. Government should be small. Taxes low. Regulations minimal. Safety nets austere. Immigration legal. Military strong. Congress should make laws. Presidents enforce laws. Judges interpret laws.
