Ironically, the former guy may help Democrats do what Americans need them to do
That Trump is even conceivably 'in the running' makes my blood boil, but also makes me realize what a sick joke our political system has become. We are continuously sucked in and then, pretty much, made to feel helpless as those in Washington who truly represent us play 'by the rules' and those who wish to own/control us don't - and have literally gotten away with it. Without a balanced or ethical Supreme Court, without swift accountability for an insurrection, without truth as staple, and with greed leading the way for control of us, there's no responsibilty. Freedom without the latter is chaos and (continuing) destruction of a democracy.
Have you considered running for president, Robert?
A society is about more than the economy. We use capitalism for our economic system. A capitalistic system does not remain healthy if it is being dragged down by poverty. If you can't keep your consumers solvent the economy will lose stability. Life has to be about more than separate individuals clawing for wealth and hiding it, hoarding it. Trump is a failed businessman and yet people expect him to save America. It is economic imbalance that is destroying our economy and the belief that being wealthy makes you better, makes you lord of the manor and above things like paying taxes.Trump governs out of ego and chaos. He will destroy us.
I am beginning to suspect Sinema has NOTHING in her head.
It is an outrage that an instigator of a heinous, deadly coup attempt is allowed to perform at his circus as if nothing happened.
Manchin is holding dearly onto his multi-million dollar investments in fossil fuels, while wannabe beauty queen Kyrsten Sinema just wants to be queen of the hop. Let's not expect honesty or sanity from either of these unprincipled loons. They're both determined for mostly unknown reasons to avoid rationality and sink the Democratic party in 2022 and 2024. Where are the firebrands in the Democratic Congress who can rouse the people against this destructive nonsense?
Trump is still a danger!! We must be vigilant and protect and expand our Congressional majorities in 2022.
I listened to part of his speech in Iowa it’s only great when he’s president according to him. Maybe he will march on the White House and threaten everyone there directly. With a gun too for optics I wonder what the oddsmakers would place on him even being charged with anything. When Reverend Jesse Jackson called New York a racially tainted word he was crucified for a long time. M Green spouts off about Jewish Owned Satellites in space beaming lasers down starting forest fires and crickets not even Israel had an issue wow this is starting to expose certain agendas I’d say and since the laws mean nothing anymore are we going to get a grand inquisitor soon in every state controlled by Republicans except Wyoming. I’m going to get on a raft and sail to Cuba for sanctuary soon.
Joe Manchin, and Kyrsten Sinimeh need to be voted out of office, for their betrayal of democratic principles!
I don't think it's surprising that Trump is making a prospective 2024 presidential election all about him:
1. He doesn't seem to know anything about anything but himself, though his knowledge of himself is tragically inept or radically dissembled.
2. His solipsism and perseveration have served him pretty well with "his" voters.
3. More and more, I think that a major attraction of the Republican Party is an appeal to laziness. Jimmy Carter talked of our national malaise, and Ronald Reagan said, "Aw, we're the Best Ever!" And on and on, relieved by initiations of ill-conceived and largely unplanned violence that continue on and on, draining energy and all other resources.
As a counterpoint, Sarah Longwell (of never-Trumper 'fame') just published her latest podcast...a Pennsylvania focus group. They harshly assessed Biden's performance (as well as the Democrats) and Barry mentioned Trump or the GOP. The optimistic notion that the midterms or 2024 will be a referendum on Trump seems increasingly unlikely. Authoritarianism and propaganda are more normalized than I would have believed possible at this early point in Biden's administration. Personally I don't believe that either voting rights legislation or infrastructure will pass, and Democrats will be blamed. The Democrats have weeks to fix the downward slump...they had a year to pass policd reform.
I am observing that many elections at every level across the u.s. have become referendums on trump. My state is electing a governor in a month and the democrat incumbent is running on a platform of "I am not for trump and my opponent is", the republican has proclaimed allegiance to trump, though not overtly in his campaign ads.
One crafty and incredibly corrupt sociopath has highjacked this entire country. Want a road map? Read William Shirer.
This is giving me a headache. I can't believe they will let him run. What about the financial wrongs he has committed? What about the rapes Trump committed? He's being investigated, so how can he run for anything?
I think the calendar is working against the Democrats for a voting rights bill, which should be the main focus now, but because the Build Back Better bill is so popular, why wouldn’t it be beneficial to have that on the line as congresspeople begin campaigning? Let them explain to their constituents what is at stake.
trump will always be about trump he thinks he is some kind of world savior just ask him ha ha
I take great exception to the term "the former guy" which I think was og used by Biden. The term and the idea is almost cute, and completely nonthreatening. It's like saying hydrochloric acid is fine to drink with dinner. Now if TFG stood for the f#c&ing gangrene, I'll go along with that...
Just contacted sin-enama AGAIN about her latest sci-fi episode re the climate bill.
IS there any hope for a Trump and co indictments and accountability ? Is the DOJ WILLING AND ABLE ?? Thank you for being precisely awesome !!
