Fox and Facebook have righties really worked up. My God loving brother-in-law is 70 years old,

wealthy, and angry as hell. I mean he is loaded financially and hate Democrats with a passion. He is like just wait until Trump goes after his enemies. Here is his text:
ď History doesnít matter itís all about now and heís the right man for the right job at the right time heís going to drain the swamp and his second term for sure going after all those assholes. Theyíre going to pay for what they did to it youíll seeĒ.

I mean he has 2 grown kids, a wife, 3 houses worth millions, about 25 expensive collectable cars and millions in the bank. I asked him , WTF are you so angry about? I asked him do You really want the President to use the police powers of the State to go after his political enemies like Hitler, Stalin etc? We need to not only win 2020 election but we need to deal with Fox and Facebook and others.

I love Warren. I want her to be President but I want to beat Trump first. I would love to see Biden

run for 1 term with Warren as VP and next Dem candidate in 2024. Biden to concentrate on foreign policy and Warren in Domestic. Or Biden/Warren 2020 and Warren/Biden as VP in 2024. It sounds crazy, I know, but it is certainly a change. I will support any Dem candidate but electability is the most important factor.

Just think about the disproportionate power Senators from sparsely populated states have over the

majority of Americans. As the divide between Rs and Ds becomes more extreme the structural defects of the Constitution will become more and more evident. The minority of the population will continue to force their religious and moral beliefs upon the majority which looks nothing like the country the Founding Fathers envisioned. It may take another depression or economic disaster that creates tremendous hardships to convince hordes of Trump loving supporters to realize that Republicans have nothing to offer. Not until they are penniless, unemployed and dying without healthcare will they realize that it was us ďLibtardsĒ who offered anyone other than rich corporations and billionaires any chance at a good life. They will get their rapture in the form of a corrupt American political, social, and economic system whose once great institutions were destroyed by the likes of Trump, McConnell, Roberts etc. we are at the beginning of the end of so-called American Exceptionalism.

A portrait of a coward. Roberts will be remembered as a failure as CJ. America was built on many

strong and principled CJ and Justices who took bold positions to shape America. How Roberts sat there and listened to lies all day is beyond me. Many Federal Judges are known as behemoths not to be trifled with. Roberts, like the cowards all Republicans are, just sat meekly by as he watched the republicans ripped apart the constitution and the law with absurd arguments. As a trial lawyer, I would dare not make such ludicrous arguments in court. As the representative and arbiter of the Constitution, Roberts sat silent as the fabric of our legal system and Constitutional order was ripped to shreds. We are now officially a banana republic.

We Dems have seriously under estimated the hatred the right has towards liberals. We have let them

define and contort who we are to such an extent that people who most depend on liberal polices vote against their own interest. Iím not sure how being intelligent, moral and caring people has turned into ďlibtardsĒ. I guess I do know, we have allowed Fox and RW media to shit all over us portraying us as weak, gun-hating baby murderers who want to take and redistribute rich peopleís ďthingsĒ. I know so many wealthy people who all say the same thing, liberals want to take their stuff and give it to lazy poor people who donít want to work. Thatís how we are seen. I mean itís surreal to watch a Trump rally full of mostly poor white trash worship a man who wants to take away what little they have and give it to the rich. Itís a reverse Robin Hood syndrome. My neighbor is a neurosurgeon and was telling me about all the people she sees in her office who just want something for nothing. All the while, her practice is mostly dealing with people who had an accident and were referred to her by accident attorneys and she performs surgery on them to hike the value of the their cases. Everything is upside down. We will never recover as a nation though as long as Fox continues itís war on liberals. I wish I lived in Canada. The USA is an ugly place these days and for the first time in my life I am ashamed to be an American. Sorry for the all over the place rant.

I suspect the impeachment rules prohibit objections. I haven't watched the trial because I stomach

the lies. If objections were permitted I suspect the Republicans would have disrupted the Dems presentation like they tried to do in the House impeachment hearings. However, while Iím sure Roberts doesnít want to put his thumb on scale, the Constitution provides that the Chief Justice of SCOTUS ďpresideĒ over the trial. In my view that gives him broad authority to do what he wants. I donít practice in Federal court other than bankruptcy proceedings, but Federal judges can do pretty much whatever they want. Roberts sitting silent while Republicans spew lie after lie is disturbing. You are correct, Republican arguments over process are not disputes over the facts for a jury to determine. They are just lies that subvert the rule of law, our democracy and Roberts not correcting the record or calling out the Republicans is unforgivable. He is doing as much damage to our country as the Republicans. Roberts is as complicit as the Republicans at this point. Roberts could do so much to restore confidence in our legal system but chooses not to. If he called out the lies being told about the process the Republicans could do nothing, zero about it. Like Trump, Roberts is untouchable. Dems arenít going to agree to impeachment proceedings against him for calling out Republican lies so why he sits silent is a testament of what a coward he is.

I hate him as much as anyone, but, incredibly, hate McConnell even more. That's a whole lot of hate.

Now consider that Magats hate us as much, well thatís a whole lotta hate and spells doom for our country. Never thought I would envy Canadians.

recentmy read a post somewhere, I think on DU, from Yale psychiatrist who said when people are

removed from cultist like surroundings, when that stimulus is removed they snapped back to normal. There will be a day when Republicans look back at their actions and say what the ďFĒ was I doing. Hopefully they will be out of office or better yet behind bars. They are living in a sick, demented Fox fueled bubble of fantasy and lies. To see the likes of Senators Johnson and Graham etc. spew complete and utter nonsense and Russian propaganda and burying their noses up Trumpís ass is difficult to believe yet everyday it gets worse. This insanity must snap at some point and stoking a war with Iran may just be the last straw. Here we go again, Republicans get in trouble and they play the fear card. I donít see Americans buying the we have to fear Iran and when American serviceman start dying there is one person to blame, their messiah Trump.

And the ultimate justification I have heard them them use, "It's God's will" that Trump is President

I heard this from a very good Christian woman right after he was elected. I never quite understood how such a good, decent woman could support Trump. They profess to believe God made Trump President for a reason but donít apply the same reasoning to issues they donít like. Well if God made Trump president then God made people to be LGBT, made abortion doctors etc. If they are right that God made Trump for a reason, letís hope that reason is to bury these far-right radicals forever. That after Trump there will be a progressive revolution that will fix the structural problems with America. That America will never again be held hostage by these Republican terrorists. If Godís hand is in this mess we are in then conservatism is finished forever and American will emerge a better nation. So letís hope God made Trump President for a reason, to destroy the Republican Party.

Stay strong and positive. We will outlast these traitors and bastards and I'm sure we all feel this

way at some point. In the end, evil always loses and the liberal backlash when he is gone will be severe. They will pay, vengeance will be sweet. There will be no turning the other cheek when this group of traitors is gone. We will see justice done. We will pick each other up and if you donít have the strength to carry on the fight rest assured we will not stop by until Republicans pay for their actions. Take care of yourself, we are all here to help and support one another in the days to come. We wil force America to correct course, we must.
