    Are Republicans "Pressure Testing" our Democratic Institutions?

    Gerrymandering and attacking voting rights

    Anti Civil Rights

    Tax Cuts for billionaires who bought politicians

    Protecting a president who is engaging in:

    Using the government to make money
    Obstruction
    Collusion
    Putting family members into the White House

    Creating massive debt

    Undermining US Intelligence agencies

    Trashing US Treaties

    Making enemies of our former friends

    Cozying up to dangerous dictators and authoritarians

    This is a moment isn't it, where a true batshit Republican in the white house is held to no accountability by the Republicans in Congress and I think they and the money behind them are getting a feel for how authoritarianism here could take hold with the least opposition. They know for sure that demographics will render Republicans nearly unelectable in the near future with their extremely narrow vision that came right out of the 1890s. They also are watching the attacks on unions across the board with great glee, something the lecherous far right wealthy have wanted to do away with for a hundred years.

    The country will survive, and after the fool is gone, we can pick ourselves up and return to a sane government. Hopefully we will have learned to never allow such a crook to become president again. That looks like the only good thing Trump-0 is capable of doing for our country.

    If all the silly claims about Obama were true, you might have a point.

    You said in the title he was a five time draft dodger. An obvious lie. Four deferments were student deferments. The exact same deferments that every male in college got. Are you saying every student in every university was a draft dodger jackass? You lied.
