    It’s our congressional leaders’ faults.

    It’s our congressional leaders’ faults. I fault the majority and the minority leaders of both congressional chambers, for their failures to bringing a vote censuring Donald Trump to the floors of their respective chambers. This is the very least they could have done and that’s without regard...

    Bad precedent to penalize Greene

    Bad precedent to penalize Greene. Sent to my congressman: I fear penalizing congresswoman Greene for anything done or said prior to being accepted as a member of the House would set a bad precedent. I urge you and your fellow members of congress to consider her activity only after having joined...

    To next U.S. Senate leader:

    To next U.S. Senate leader: Senator Schumer, since 1959 when I left the military service, I voted in every general election and failed to vote in extremely few Democratic primary elections. During President Obama’s first administration, the Democratic congressional majority shamelessly failed...

    Democratic agenda.

    Democratic agenda. Congressional Democrats should be able to simultaneously chew gum and walk. Congressional members should carry out all other of both their chambers’ tasks even if the house is considering impeaching Donald Trump. Respectfully, Supposn

    Congressional votes of censure.

    Congressional votes of censure. A Congressional House or Senate vote of censure has little if any legal standing within federal law. Republican and Democratic members of both chambers should as an act of bi-partisan agreements, censure President Donald Trump for the inclusions and absences of...

    "Civil Discourse" and "Standards of Decorum" in CONgress

    Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts admonished both sides of "The world's greatest deliberative body" for violating standards of decorum and not maintaining "civil discourse." Yes, yes, both sides are "guilty." But this is like comparing a pathological, psychotic liar with someone who...

    Iran, Declaration of War, and Congress

    I don't believe they have yet, but what scenario would play out should Iran declare a "state of war" against the US? According to the War Powers Act, Congress alone has the ability to declare war. Although, the War Powers Act was ignored by President Obama on two separate occasions, once in...

    Pelosi and impeachment: Congresswoman Pelosi is doing her duty to the nation. President Trump has left her no honorable alternative. It doesn't please me that Democratic house members will honestly vote for impeachment. I do not want impeachment not continuing to be a highly abnormal...

    Does the Legislative Branch Have More Power Than the Executive Branch?

    Let me explain my thought process... I've relatively recently decided to get myself into politics and can't start college classes until the spring because of moving in a few weeks. Because of this, I've decided to start doing my own research so I don't seem like a total idiot when I do get into...

    Will Congress reopen with a flurry of attempted gun bills?

    This one sponsored by Houston's Sheila Jackson Lee was proposed before they went off session: If it somehow passed, you would have to obtain a license to own a firearm and/or ammunition, and it would require you to undergo a psychological examination by a government-approved psychologist, a...

    The Catalina Lauf campaign

    Note the difference in language and demeanor. While Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar spread hate, promote violence, and spaz out like toddler’s throwing tantrums, Catalina Lauf shows leadership by being a composed uniter. Meet Catalina Lauf, the young Republican...

    The extreme division between the Democrats & Republicans

    What troubles me greatly is the wide division in this country politically at this time. It seems to be the worst division that has ever existed between the two parties since 1945. (Baby Boomers - correct me if I'm wrong with when it was worse) It's just down right hateful. How do we expect to...

    If one exists, I couldn't find it. They are coming back from break shortley. To me, the most Hilarious line was when Chuck Grassley asked William Barr if the Steele Dossier was a Russian "plant".
