Response to Mr.Bill (Reply #36)

61. I'm waiting. I've been waiting for years.

I waited for the Mueller report. Nothing happened. I waited for indictments of Trump on obstruction of justice after he left office. Nothing happened. I waited for all the emoluments lawsuits. Nothing happened. I waited for the end of Trumpís presidency so Individual 1 could be prosecuted for campaign finance violations the same as Michael Cohen, who spent time in jail. Nothing happened, case dismissed. I waited for the inauguration committee fraudóstill ongoing four years later, but will anything happen? Probably not.

Iím tired of waiting for justice to be enforced, but it never seems to come for most rich white men like Trump. For all the crooks like Bernie Madoff who do get caught and sent to prison, thousands more just skate around the law and never suffer any consequences. So far, Trump has been one of them.

I no longer believe in the basic fairness of the US legal system. It is filled with lawyers and judges who protect white people, especially rich white people, and businesses to the detriment of everyone else. Republicans have been passing laws to give their state legislatures the right to overturn the votes of the people. Lawsuits have been filed, but I doubt that many of these laws will be overturned because states have the right to regulate elections. One federal law, Senate bill 1, could negate most of these laws, bu Congress refuses to pass it. What does that say about our desire to maintain white privilege in this country, even if democratic principles get trampled into the ground to do so?
