Nope. Most of her speech was showing how easy it is for a "bad guy" to be in Congress. And how it is even easier for a president.

I disagree with the president part because skeletons are more closely looked for. Just like how Donald trump paid off stormy Daniel's and it still came back to haunt him.

Either way, she did a good job in the speech, even if one dislikes her for socialism or anti-trump..

Alot of people dislike her for her socialist ideas, but I doubt anyone can knock her for this. At least she is saying something about our current system that is so easily corrupt able.

Hopefully she puts her focus on anti-corruption.

Seems to me she is exposing the corruption and putting it out there, did you know exactly what she was talking about , we're you aware exactly how this specific corruption played out?

Why isn't Trump calling out this corruption and having a go at fixing it.?

Why do you support a corrupt government?

You're absolutely right.


We should coin a phrase, make it viral.

How about. . . "Drain The Swamp".


Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Not really, drain the swamp is just a catch phrase, trump has done nothing to address these very real issues, he removes one swamp monster and replaces them with another swamp monster.

The phrase in reality is " replace the swamp "

Our "swamp" isn't passive. It will never just "drain".

Especially when it has supporters.

I constantly criticize the government for its misgivings, you on the other hand cheer on one side of the political landscape.

Care to elaborate on just exactly what you think my post history alludes to?

You only criticize one side of government.

QED.

I disagree with you there, the whole government is corrupt, and it's not just a U. S problem it's global.

Yes really, it's disgraceful that corporations can pass money under the table to influence government legislation and law to increase their profitability and power.

No not at all, nothing wrong with capitalism, however there is a problem when corporations create monopolies then starve out the competition and use the government to get to that goal through "donations" .

I'm sorry I don't understand your response, shes talking about the corruption in government what has that got to do with socialism ?


Socialism always breeds corruption. Just look at the latest Socialist country. It is over run with corruption.

Let's see what we have here...

- she is Dr. Mengele in a sheep disguise
- it's socialisms fault
- attacking "bad persons" is an attack on Trump
- water is wet
- people addressing corruption are supporters of corruption
- a critique of corporate cronyism and corruption is anti-capitalist

Did I forget something? It's a good thing we have The Experts (TM) around, innit?

He has been...

Why do you think that he's being investigated in one country after another?

They're pointlessly throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping it'll stick.

Think about it this way.

It's kind of like the regular law enforcement for you and I.

Let's say you and I get in a fight. Whoever makes the call to the police first gets to press charges. The other has to pay the fine, defend themselves in court and raise counter charges. Doesn't matter who started it (in most cases).

It's the same thing here. If Trump goes after anyone, they quickly throw investigation after investigation at him so IF he decides to TRY, even just a little, he looks like he's just retaliating. This makes he look like the bad guy. He fired a couple of people since in office. Look how much negative publicity he's gotten. He's called out person after person and when he does, he's just a twitter troll. Any investigations in the people he's calling out? Nope.

ok.. maybe hillary but do you really think they're REALLY looking in to it? Looks like it's the same people as the first time when they found not a fish in a barrel full of fish. They couldn't see the tree in the forest. Know what I mean?
