Reform of pardons, norms, accepted practices, answers to subpoenas by Dems

Screw all that. Trump doesn't get to monkey the entire system, and then, the Reich Wing ensnares Biden and the WH in "reforms" brought on by the excesses of the Orange Baboon Ass.

Try out those reforms on any future Reich Wing Administration.

Retribution is a governing practice for the Dems now. Anything short of that is appeasement.

1. pardons cant be reformed.

that would require a constitutional amendment. 2/3 of both senate and house, 3/4 of states legislatures . not going to happen.

5. again !! have you read what i wrote ??

the "passing" involves convincing 2/3 of senate and house to vote for it then 3/4 of state legislatures to do as well.
This is impossible.

6. Yes, I did.

amendments are not "impossible" to pass. It has been done before. Difficult, yes, but not impossible. Like I said, let's see who else he pardons. At this point, nothing should surprise us.

7. sadly i think this time has passed.

over the last few decades the country has become so polarized its not going to happen any time soon . last one was in 1992 more than 28 years ago and was not controversial, it was about forbiding congress to change their salaries in the middle of an existing congress. Incidentally, it was proposed in 1789... we had quite a few passed in the 60's and 7o's .

All that was before internet and right wing radio/tv . Nowadays I cant imagine any way to get there. We no longer have reasonable politicians .

3. Thank you!

 

We don't need to to overhaul the system. We need to elect leaders who can be trusted not to destroy it.
