A poll to put us in the mood for a Democratically led House

I am SO looking forward to the Democrats finally bringing to the House some real oversight and investigations with teeth.

I've found myself wondering:

If Drumpf were given non-consecutive jail sentences for all the crimes he's committed since he turned 18, and the sentencing was just, what do you think his total jail time would be?

Cheers for a brand new shiny 2019.

A cute idea, but clones do not share the same mind or consciousness. royable Jan 2019 #4

Thank you, everyone, for voting. I'm struck by the bivariate (two peaked) distribution. royable Jan 2019 #3

Just for Two Scoops, why have him cheat multiple concecutive sentences by the expedient of dying? Have a cloned body ready for transfer so he can serve out all of the sentences, knowing not even death can release him

Or is that too Hellish? It sure sounds like it would meet the "cruel and unusual punishment" test. Maybe context would allow it

Just like one identical twin not being responsible for what the other twin does.

Of course consciousness transfer would have to be in place too. Transfer the person onto a backup body, no reason to punish an innocent clone

Judging from this relatively small and self-selected sample, apparently about 1/4 of us think Drumpf deserves about 1/100th of the jail time that the other 3/4 of us think is appropriate.

0 from 0 to 1
0 from 1+ to 5
0 from 5+ to 10
6 from 10+ to 50
1 from 50+ to 100
1 from 100+ to 500
4 from 500+ to 1000
14 1000+

Thanks again!
