McCain’s time to be president was 2000, when he still lived up to his self assessment as a “maverick”. At that time, I was a progressive leaning independent and he might well have gotten my vote. How different would the world be now if he had been elected then instead of W?
For Trump, it really is not collusion. He has been doing “business” with Russians (and Arabs) for years. He is so pathetically (and pathologically) greedy and self centered that he thinks all the Russian bank loans and property purchases (at wildly inflated prices) are the result of his business genius and not the result of the Russian’s finding a stooge to launder their kleptocratic profits. He’s is blissfully unaware of that his “reciprocal favors” to his business associates is unlawful, much less treason. His motto is a paraphrasing of the old quote “What is good for GM is good for the country”. Except that in his view GM is just a mom and pop outfit compared to Trump Enterprises.
I agree with your assessment tb, as unlikely as it would seem, Trump’s supporters cannot be “shown” his crimes and malfeasance, they must “discover” them for themselves. At least one of them has already done so…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfS19YcO0Os
The U.S and the U.K., each destroying themselves from the inside out for the same reason… xenophobia.
Thanks for the tip. He’s also on Arcamax.
A very reasonable statement (/s), given that the Republicans have seated 2 presidents that have lost the popular vote in 2 of the last 5 elections. (However, I love the use of alliteration in your hyperbole.) I might also point out, that if we were to eliminate the democrats, whether literally or through subterfuge (gerrymandering), we would then have a one party system. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a one party system antithetical to a democracy?)
Sir Mix-A-Lot says….
Answer: The electoral college.
So what was preventing them from “leading” in ’17 & ’18 when they had total control?
