Learn from history - it we come out of this Dems must crush Republicans

In my lifetime, Nixon was let off with a Ford pardon, Reagan/Bush were not held fully accountable for Iran/Contra, Bush/Cheney were given a pass. In each case the Republicans came back and were worse, because they didn't pay a heavy enough penalty.

This time we need to prosecute each and every one of them. None of this, "we need to move on for the good of the Country."

For the good of the Country we need to penalize them to the fullest extent, use every means possible to strip them of Govt Pensions, jail them for crimes committed against the United States. If not, then ten year later we will be dealing with something worse.

2. And strip them of their ill-begotten wealth, ALL of it. Personally I'm fantasizing

about the asset known as Trump Tower being seized and it's value being distributed among all the immigrant families he caused to be separated.

10. Would love to see

the kook brothers, shelly and the rest of the kleptocratic billionaires forced to disgorge the tax cuts, ALL of them going back to saint ronnie's. They have been stealing from the rest of us for decades.

Make this country functional again!

15. Did some quick math on that

works out to about $40 per individual based on Trump tower being worth about $450 million.

Of course Trump tower is totally leveraged, which brings the payout into the sub 1 cent territory.

8. Ford made a grave mistake

When he pardoned Nixon. That act has led to Trump and his enablers.

11. They are setting up a prescedent that presidents are above the law.

It needs to stop now. I was livid when Pelosi took impeachment off the table and when we got no inquiry into torture and war crimes under W.

Beyond that, the repukes have been waging war on the dems for at least 24 years, and the dems never seem to get it. I feel like I've watched them trying to fight a gunfight with a butter knife since I've been old enough to be aware of politics.

I hope the democrats will finally learn this time. No more kid gloves, "moving on", or "reaching across the isle". Frog march the trumpsters into court, don't pardon them, and hang their crimes around the repulsive party's neck for the next generation.

14. Just one more reason

Pelosi has to go.

A new poll out shows Democrats want new faces. I agree, we need a big generation change.
