    I think it's quite clear they don't believe in our system of gov't. Many senators admit the house managers have proved their case, but that trying to rig an election using a foreign gov't is not an impeachable offense.

    The GOP is an authoritative party that is lost back by supporters who are largely white ethnocentric.

    No principles, just pure corruption.

    They must be destroyed.

    These are uncharted waters for this country. You've never had an executive exercise so much power in this nation's history.

    The question is how far will he go in his remaining time whether it be a year or 5 more years or beyond.

    I suppose now we will find out how much of a threat to this country he is, as the chains have truly been taken off and he now has free reign to do what he pleases.

    Give it a fukin rest already, the shameless Dems will be drawing up another impeachment when Trump sneezes without a hanky. His approval is growing because of the persistent clown show which is the Democratic party.

    Well, at least we're starting with a constructive proposal.

    As a Republican, am I and my fellow republicans to be destroyed in a Concentration camp ala Auschwitz? 60+ million or so?

    Well, it's so low that it often can only go up. It's literally been lower than every other president...

    Also, the only president in recent history whose first day approval rating was sub 50% lol, let's not pretend like most of the country likes this guy.

    Make sure you wipe your mouth when you get off your knees for Trump.

    Because the crime he has committed is about trying to rig an election.

    A man who cries falsely about how elections are rigged - is it no surprise that he would try to undermine our own election?

    If this is ok with you - then it shows that winning is more important than the integrity of our system to you.

    I heard he had Mark Zuckerberg create an algorithm that rounds up the decimal points in the voting machines. By the time anyone figures it out he'll have finished his second term.

    Is that the plot of Office Space?

    Let me guess, he's also in the Oval Office doing two chicks at the same time?

    Are you saying you don't believe he tried to get Ukraine to announce a fake investigation against Biden?

    Tell us something we don’t know. Citizens united corrupted our political system with money, and it drove the electorate to think it was so bad they wanted to blow it up.

    Only to have someone blow it up but at the same time have a party that doubles down on the corruption in broad daylight. He took an opportunity to seize power through a pissed off electorate.

    Im with the others though that I’m more concerned with what now... what and who is doing anything about it?? Yes people will vote but we are now dealing with a party who don’t really care about elections and will steal the election even more blatant than they did with Bush/Gore. Voting isn’t really the only solution when the party in power openly rigs the election.

    So I dunno... what’s being done about it? What do you want to do about it? Thoughts and prayers?
