Quote
Just weeks before the 2016 presidential election, Steve Curtis told his radio listeners “Virtually every case of voter fraud, that I can remember in my lifetime was committed by Democrats or do I not have the facts?”

Now Curtis, the chairman of Colorado’s Republican party in the late 1990’s and a former talk show host for KLZ-560 AM, is on trial in a Weld County Courtroom, charged with forgery, a felony and election fraud, a misdemeanor.

The 58-year-old is accused of forging his ex-wife’s signature on her 2016 mail-in ballot after the couple divorced and she moved to South Carolina.

Another way that Kid's favorite tax "reform" bill will "Make America Great Again" - no more student loan forgiveness for those who enter public service.

Dictatorship?

Come on.

Why is this hard to follow?  The only barrier between Authoritarianism and Democracy is our Constitution, and the only way to ensure that the Executive Branch adheres to the Constitution is Congressional oversight and the threat of removal.
And your point is what?


That the more fascist republican stooges we can drum out of office and replace with Ds and Is, the stronger our democracy will be and the better chance our national experiment as a free and constitutional governed country will survive the decade. Republicans can only do harm now. They are all bought and have no spines at all.

Absolutely correct, facilitatorn. One can’t exactly recommend the Democrats as the answer because they themselves are such a lame party these days, but they are the only way to stop these Republicans at this time. And they must be stoped if we intend to keep living in a free America. There are no ifs, ands or buts about this. The bottom line priority must be to get rid of Trump and his enablers, the republicans. If it has an (R) next to its name, they must be defeated.

The point is clearly stated in the section you edited out of the quote, as well as the post that preceded this one.

Tell us REDSTATEWARD, what action do you think Congress should take if Trump fires Mueller?

RNC follows Trump and goes all-in on Moore, because since separating themselves from him after he was credibly accused of child molestation, evidence has emerged that has cast doubt on those accusations polling has been released that shows the race tightening.

2018 is going to be fun.

Remember when Conservatives were so mad when Obama was supposedly using tax policy to punish their supporters?

Now they are openly doing it themselves:

“It’s death to Democrats,” said conservative economist Stephen Moore, who advised Trump’s campaign on tax policy.

63% are happy to keep him.

So, no, not all Republicans are contributing to evil, but plenty are.

My irony meter broke some time ago, given that the party that has sold itself as defenders of morality is now backing Moore.

Good piece in the NYT this morning on why impeachment of #45 makes more sense than prosecution.
