Shame!

The Republicans were too chickenshit to convict Trump, even though most of them admitted that he is guilty. So they let him off on a technicality (and a pretty lame one at that). I think we have uncovered a pretty severe flaw in our political system, but I have no idea how we can fix it.

Will it require our country to completely fall apart, so we can rebuild it from scratch? If we are very lucky, maybe it will only require the Republican Party to completely collapse, so it can be rebuilt. But I doubt that will happen.

    I think it will only happen if we keep the GOP from gaining any more power. Voting them out and keeping them out of public office if they spout off crazy conspiracy theories. Protecting election integrity by removing barriers to legal votes and stopping the gerrymandering of districts will help, too.

    If/when the Republicans realize they’re no longer relevant, they will have to change their platform, or face the end of their party.

    I think this is a fundamental issue with having political parties. The parties drive and take advantage of our divisiveness. And the idea that the Republicans can punish people for not toeing the party line is itself undemocratic. Our representatives represent their respective parties more than their constituents.

    Is there anyone else who hears these things and thinks of this.

    Rebuild the Republican Party? On the gods green earth, why? Let it go the way of Tyrannosaurus rex. The White Nationalist & Sedition Party needs to go away–permanently.
    Letting it die would be the right and conservative thing to do.

    This says it all about what people are up against.

    This is the letter Adam Kinzinger’s family sent him (and this is what is leading us into a dictatorship)

    Adam,

    Oh my, what a disappointment you are to us and to God! We were once so proud of your accomplishments! Instead, you go against your Christian principals (sic) and join the “devil’s army.” (Democrats and the fake news media). How do you call yourself a Christian when you join the “devils army” believing in abortion! We thought you were “smart” enough to see how the left is brainwashing so many “so called good people” including yourself and many other GOP members. You have even fallen for their socialism ideals! So, so, sad!

    President Trump is not perfect, but neither are you or any of us for that matter! It is not for us to judge or be judged! But he is a Christian! (If God can forgive and use King David in the Bible, He can do the same with President Trump.) Franklin Graham, Robert Jeffress, to just name a few, of many Pastors, who mentor President Trump, know that he is a believer! Obviously, you did not hear President Trump’s “Christmas Message” to the American people (fake news media did not cover his message) where he actually gave the plan of salvation, instructing people how to repent and ask the Savior into their heart to be “Born Again”! (To believe in John 3:16). When was the last time you proclaimed your faith Adam? (Oh, we forgot you now belong to the “devils army.”). You won’t convince us otherwise with your horrible, rude accusations of President Trump! (To embrace a party that believes in abortion and socialism is the ultimate sin.) We should list even more grievances against you, but decided you ae (sic) not worth more of our time to list them. We have said enough!

    You should be very proud that you have lost the respect of Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Greg Kelly, etc. and most importantly in our book, Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh and us!”

    It is now most embarrassing to us that we are related to you. You have embarrassed the Kinzinger family name. We are not judging you. This letter is our opinion of you!

    Oh, by the way, good luck in your fund raising (sic) endeavors. We are sure we know there are many others good GOP and Christian supporters, that feel the same way we do. Also very disappointed with the many other GOP have sided with the Democrats. (We should demand our money back!)

    Wow, that letter… So Germany has an abortion rate around on third of ours, not because false prophets claiming “45” is a good man, but because of socialist policies that don’t doom a woman to poverty. What we really need is vote fusion, we used to have it 100 years ago, but it gave people choices of what party to belong to and vote with, allowing multiple parties to combine votes for the some person.
