Who is keeping the Republican Party honest?

Democrats used to be the counter-balance to the Republican Party. Sure, they are (were) two wings of the same bird, but since the democrats decided to go off the reservation and go full-on socialist and anti-Constitution, who is keeping the Republicans in check?

Democrats have double-downed on uncivil disobedience. They want guns gone. They abuse and insult the 1st Amendment almost daily. They have tossed out the 5th Amendment and now you are guilty until proven innocent. They want higher taxes, bigger government, free college and free healthcare courtesy of everyone who pays taxes. They want open borders and the abolishment of ICE. The federal departments they want to keep they have weaponized. The FBI and IRS, DOJ are/were just the 21st Century equivalent to the Gestapo.


But Republicans are no treasure either. They are the counter to the extreme leftists but in doing so, they have become extremists themselves. They are doubling down on free expression, pot legislation, nd I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to push back on gay marriage.


ANY political party is a danger to all of us if it isn't kept in check.

We need balance.

Unfettered ideology only leads to a loss of freedoms, if history is any indicator. We've lost our balance with the extremists calling the shots in the Democrat Party.

We can see this in the bolder Republicans who inhabit the Senate.

Now some may think that the left gaining control of the House will provide balance again. I think it'll make things worse. Because the democrats don't want balance, they want it ALL. They will hurt/harm/insult the very foundations of the republic in order to gain power.

And that will cause the republicans to counter to even further extremes.


It will tear this nation apart.


Just my opinion, mind you, if I knew the future I'd have bought a lottery ticket and said #### everyone!

I used to say we weren't at the level of animosity that would lead to Civil War because we weren't beating each other nearly to death in the well of the House.

But then Steve Scalise was shot and nearly died because someone disagreed with his politics.

I think we passed that Rubicon.

What's next? Who's going to be all John Brown for the left? Are we going to reach that point? Will there be a Harper's Ferry?

Republicans became extreme back in the Reagen days.

And have only gotten worse.

I guess the Democrats have caught on that the only way to get attention is to be as bad as the Republicans.

You reap what you sow I guess.

Kudos for seeing the implicit danger regarding checks and balances.

The "private sector" working class are seen as the "tax cows" to them.

If you work in the private sector and are not rich, you are a fool to support the Democratic Party as you will be paying for everyone else's freebies.

The only thing to keep the Republican party in check is NOT the Democrats... it is the "People".

If they want our vote, they will represent us.

TLDR; whatever bad things the Republicans do are the fault of the Democrats for not keeping them honest.

Probably the most ironic thing I’ve ever seen you write.

Yeah.

I guess it sucks to be us.

The party of RULE or RUIN.

There is absolutely no level they wouldn't stoop to and would gladly let America (and Americans) burn to the ground if it meant they could get the upper-hand.

You really should read it. Otherwise your opinion sounds like fluff and ignorance.

Extreme... LOL

I listened to Holder's little speech and everyone was fixating on the whole "they go low, we kick them" part.

Me, I listened to the part where he is proud of the Democrat's history.

So slavery, the wrong side of a civil war, the KKK, segregation, the rise of Progressivism, Japanese internment camps... he's proud of all that.

Which party is extreme again?

Truth be told, the only reason they are going batsnip crazy is that someone finally got in that has upset their power base.

36% approval rating Trump has with blacks now.

You can't run as dog catcher as a Democrat without a 90% black vote.

Took the Supreme court from them.

Now Kanye has wandered off the plantation and is telling blacks that thinking for themselves is OK.

He is ruining everything for them.

I noticed he is also not calling for increased violence like the left is.

So you want extreme?

Look in a mirror.

What is he saying in your opinion?

Now some may think that the left gaining control of the House will provide balance again.


All Republicans have to do is maintain control of the Senate. ( very likely)

And the force will have balance.

The blue wave will amount to nothing more than the blue water left from a toilet bowl scrubber.

I'm assuming you haven't watched the news in the last few weeks or read a poll...

Desperation on the Republican side?

Why?

The Dems just handed them the midterms.

And if we think they are violent now? Just watch, if they lose again. "Not Joking"

I just wish we had reasoned, sensible democrats.

I may not agree with all their approaches, but it was never anti-Constitutional.

I don't trust the republicans. I think they have just as much propensity to violate the Constitution if given the chance.

What desperation?

Trump is kicking arse.

After the Kavanagh confirmation he's been nominating lower court justices to get rid of political hacktavists.

Great economic numbers.

Even the bad day on Wall Street was the direct result of the FED being sniphats.

The attempt character assassination of Kavanugh killed any chances of a blue wave they had grand delusions of.
