3. No, foreign interference in our elections is NOT silliness

Foreign interference in US elections, particularly by unfriendly foreign powers is an assault on our republican (I emphasize lower-case republican here) government and not only thwarts the will of the American electorate and disrupt US governance.

More than a few of us DUíers are former Cold Warriors and see no valid reason to believe that while meddling by the former Soviet Union was bad, recent meddling by the Russian Federation is now OK Because it benefits the Republican Party. Itís still bad, itís still criminal, and American politicians who knowingly solicit and accept such assistance should be prosecuted and imprisoned.

I remember right-wingers howling in indignation about Al Gore unknowingly accepting a donation from foreign Buddhist nuns. Putinís meddling is interference on a far, far larger scale. And to trolling right-Wing ďbut-but-butsĒ reading this, your chosen party has left the norms of decency and legality far behind. You choke on gnats while swallowing camels.
