We have watched the Dems screw this Country for 8 years.


I don't know about anyone else, but I've watch a Right Wing obstructionist Congress block everything this administration has tried to do.

So much for a government of compromise.

I absolutely blame this Right Wing Congress, not the administration.

I do believe they gave Obama everything he wanted, and it was Obama who vetoed the attempts of the Republicans to get anything done.

Got a list of things they stopped?

Actually it's intended to be obstructionist.

Compromise means both side must be willing to yield. I have not seen any yielding from this ideological administration or Left Wing Congress.

Theatre.

The two parties feign this division so that they can bring us the worst legislation possible and help themselves and their cronies reap the most profit from it. Believe it.

What is sold to the public is never what we actually buy.

Case in point: The Affordable Healthcare Act...not even one single republican voted for the Affordable Care Act.

What we got with the ACA is an unaffordable social healthcare option, no public option, but an option for those in need of healthcare to just pay a once a year fine for not being able to actually afford it. Republicans are not responsible for what was passed.

I'm not gonna go to the Conspiracy angle on this.

I wasn't even thinking of the ACA.

I used to research a lot, but can't really now with an 8 year old.

Interesting stuff though.

Didn't know there was a Republicans for Obama website. (1st term, I'm not trying to be sneaky

I was there. Took part in many of the delegate events throughout the week. I'd be surprised if any of the law enforcement tasked with protecting the city vote democrat. Maybe the most memorable moment was seeing a line of delegates maybe 8 blocks long clap as maybe 20 officers walked alongside the line, by the time they got to me several officers were in tears. Lots of love like that between delegates and law enforcement. And the protestors were all little misfits with nothing going. Clearly this election is a vote between the haves and have nots and that dichotomy couldn't have been clearer this week.

Mandela effect.

Because we live in a DEMOCRACY where two houses of congress write bills so the president can make law.

Congress doesn't exist just to be a yesman to the executive.

Those checks and balances remember those ?

It's not so much a conspiracy as it is a joint political strategy they can all profit from by cooperating while pretending to not cooperate.

ETA: And by not being willing to go there, you are missing the truth the evidence points to.

Are you actually interested in why I made the decision to vote Democratic again and against Trump?


Because you like 'extremely careless' and 'highly unsophisticated' narcissistic liars ?
