    i think its important to point out that it really isn't about trump per se. trump is just the figurehead that shows that there are millions of americans out there, who have these very authoritarian beliefs, they like a strong man, they don't really care for democracy unless its making the laws they agree with. trump isn't really the problem, hes a symptom of the problem. the problem is reasonable races between pedophiles and democrats. politicians choosing there political party over democracy, over facts, and over learning the truth. choosing power over process. undermining process for power.

    we live in dangerous times, and not just because trump is railroading our economy into the shitter, and the american empire and hegemony is losing power at an exponential rate ... we live in dangerous times, because we are doing this to ourselves.

    and that, is scary as shit.

    "President Trump on Friday said he intended to nominate William P. Barr, who served as attorney general during the first Bush administration from 1991 to 1993, to return as head of the Justice Department.

    ?He was my first choice since Day 1,? Mr. Trump told reporters as he walked from the White House to a helicopter for a trip to Kansas City, Mo. ?He?ll be nominated.?
    That's how you know he had to be forced into it by an advisor.

    > Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn't have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn't get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!

    Don't even have to bother looking for the party this guy is a member of.

    this is why republicans don't want to protect mueller, because they are implicated in just as serious of crimes via the NRA:

    https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/mari...ry?id=59719083

    *Unrelated to specific presidential campaigns,* Erickson wrote in an October 2016 email to an acquaintance that was later obtained by the FBI, *I*ve been involved in securing a VERY private line of communication between the Kremlin and key [unnamed political party] leaders through, of all conduits, the [unnamed gun-rights organization].*

    And during an FBI raid of Erickson*s South Dakota home, investigators discovered a handwritten note suggesting Erickson may have been aware of a possible job offer from Russian intelligence services: *How to respond to FSB offer of employment?* Erickson scratched, an apparent reference to the Russian equivalent of the CIA.
    the GOP is complicit and/or guilty of treason.
