If you think any political party is going to be good for the country, dream on. However, having all three branches of the government controlled by one group is a recipe for disaster. We have to break up that party before we are all screwed, and our first opportunity is this November. Stop them.

Promises made.... Promises kept.


Just another piece of the puzzle.
Who did that? Isn't Texas where they are cancelling American birth certificates so they don't get to vote? That doesn't sound like returning power to the people to me.

By all means, I dare you to accept a complete and total end to all gerrymandering. No more "districts"...everything will be at large.

You cool with that?
Don't be shy. Come up with an example of Democrat gerrymandering. If it happens in every blue state, that should be easy.

Yeah. Thanks for posting. I figured once Trump is president for life the rest just doesn't matter...

Absolutely! And tell all your friends and relatives to get out and vote and to make sure they are not purged from the rolls prior to the midterms. The GOP has been in the final stages of a hijacking and are now for the most part a crime syndicate. The Democratic Party needs to go back to its Progressive roots once it take back power or we are ****ed and the grand experiment is no more. The Dems became Republican-lite and that was a contributing factor in this travesty we are witnessing now.

yes and peace to all. That is the only sentiment I can agree with.
when a lefty starts moralizing about someone cheating I start laughing at them. because you people haven't cared about morality for 3 generations.


so go find someone who doesn't know the history of the democrat party for your silly tripe
