Nobody will know that a user is a Trump-enabling moron unless

that user ACTS like an Trump enabling moron. Some of you are really overthinking the rules. If someone voted Trump (or 3rd party) and now regrets it, they'll be just fine here unless they post obnoxious, anti-democratic, pro-Trump/pro-GOP bullshit. If the person can't resist smearing Hillary and other democrats, and on top of that admits to enabling Trump, then yes, they should go.

It's common sense, no need to overthink it.

What if Trump strikes a "deal:" Offers to resign in exchange for immunity?

for himself and his family?

That would not sit well with me, at all.

I think we need to have a plan ready in case the repubs try this. Trump should not be allowed to walk off into the sunset, with his criminal enterprises not only intact but prospering for the first time in decades due to the shady backroom deals and executive orders that he made during his fake presidency.

I've thought about it. My parents are from different countries

so I'm not sure what to expect. It seems like I'd get more useful information by buying tests for them.

Also, I had more interest in testing before the heavy handed, patronizing Ancestry.com ads started popping up on TV. It seems like they're really trying to target (exploit?) African Americans. Frankly, anyone whose ancestors were brutally kidnapped and brought to this country to be a slave should be granted an ancestry DNA kit free of charge, paid for by the U.S. government.

I think Reince Priebus and/or HR McMaster are the leakers. Maybe working with Pence to get Trump out

Priebus, McMaster, Pence, and possibly some others in the House or Senate are working together to speed along Trump's removal. Priebus can go on to be Pence's Chief of Staff. McMaster is on active duty and not necessarily there by choice. We've heard very little from him since his awkward defense of Trump's shady meeting with the Russians in the Oval Office.

All of the others, like Bannon, Spicer, Conway, etc, know they will be unemployable when Trump is removed. So I doubt it's any of them.

"Why does everyone involved with Trump look like a scene-stealer in a Coen brothers movie?"


Why did Ossoff "lose?"

Seems like everyone has a different take.

If we don't start publicly acknowledging and fighting GOP voter suppression, purging & dirty tricks

the "losses" will continue to pile up. Too many of us want to bury our heads in the sand and pretend like our voting process is fair and beyond reproach. Wake up! E-voting machines with no paper trail are simply unacceptable! Are we a democracy or a third world dictatorship? Our leaders must 1) acknowledge that our voting system is broken and then 2) make sure EVERY American citizen is allowed to *easily* exercise his/her constitutional right to vote. Some common sense reforms:

- Voter registration should be automatic for anyone with a driver's license (or a state ID starting at age 18).

- Race and gender should NOT be listed on our voter registrations as that allows for easier purging and dirty tricks.

- Voting should not be a hassle. There shouldn't be long lines or last minute changes to polling locations without substantial fines. Also, just as people are forced to give up work days for jury duty, maybe the same can be done to get more assistance at the polls. Poll duty.

- Every vote should come with 2 receipts-one for the voter, and 1 for the poll workers. This might be asking for too much, but I wouldn't mind leaving with a unique receipt number that I can enter online to view my selections at a later time. Just for peace of mind.

But back to the suppression and dirty tricks:

Handel is irredeemably deplorable.

It might be time for Tom Perez to step down

Over the past few weeks, we've seen a completely out of control president & White House. Where is the LOUD and overwhelming message from the democrats? Now Spicer is rolling back the daily pressers--no cameras or audio allowed. Where is our representation???!!! We need to be shouting from the rooftops. Hysterical almost.

If Ossof loses tomorrow, Perez might need to step down. We need fighters right now!

What about the people dumb enough to do back flips in

defense of him?

I'll just say this... I've watched Bill Maher since the Politically Incorrect days. I don't think I've missed a episode since he started on HBO... Year after year I watched him become more and more offensive, making ignorant comments about President Obama not being black enough (according to Maher's dumbass stereotypes), disrespectful comments about women, gays, Muslims--basically everyone in the democratic tent except for white guys.

As usual, I tuned in Friday and then I heard that comment. I had to pause and rewind--did this mfcker really just say that? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of the situation, but for me personally, it still would have been highly offensive if he had said "I'm not a house slave." But it looks like he wanted to pack in as much disrespect as possible, so he said what he said.

Let's be clear: The Slavery of Africans in this country is NOT a laughing matter. 400 years of brutal rapes, abuse, murder and torture is not funny. So fuck any ignorant asshole who thinks it's ok to joke about that.

Do I think Bill's intent was malicious? No, but I see now that his disrespect for his fans (many who happen to be African American) has reached the point of no return. I'm not among those calling for him to be fired, but I will not subject myself to his abuse anymore. Enough is enough.
I almost blame myself for watching in the first place in light of his recent unhinged anti-Muslim rants, etc. I'm done!

Trump is done. How do we stop Pence?

Repubs are now openly using the "I" word and, according to CNN's Ana Navarro, McCain just compared Trump's actions to WaterGate. The tide is turning, so democrats need to think about the next steps.
