I kid you not.


Bigotry-hunts are the Dem version of McCarthyism. Or worse, the literal witch burnings in Salem in the 1690s.

Thats where this party is right now.

Black Politicians are the worst. They are the true bigots.

Did you hear about this now? Sheila Jackson Lee is now claiming the passenger who got bumped so that her fat black ass can get the seat is only upset at her because she's Black. You can't make this shit up.

Democrats want to impeach Trump because he had the audacity to win an election over their anointed queen. They have spent the last year in collusion with the mainstream media attempting to de-legitimize the Trump presidency. It's an attack on democracy and similar to the ridiculous antics of Roy Moore, tbh. Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.

Same way the GOP chanted death to ACA and voted every year in lock step to repeal it...but then when they had a Republican president to sign off on it, suddenly...they couldnt get the votes.

All a show folks! This one was 8 years long though..

They did repeal it in the House. The Senate has a much slimmer majority. Anyway it doesn't matter because the individual mandate was repealed so the ACA will die anyway.

Nice comparison of apples to oranges though.

Every GOP senate member voted for the repeal, with a majority, in 2015. They brought the same bill up in the summer this year and suddenly a handful of them renegged. They played you for a fool ro0f!

Meh. It matters not. Republicans are allowed to have differing opinions and can vote accordingly. It's not like the dems who have to follow party rules like it's a damn religion or something. Anyway the ACA is dead and this thread is about impeachment. You fail miserably on both issues so I guess it's a win-win.

But what differed in their opinion to vote yes every year, and suddenly vote no once it was capable of being signed and passed? Why the change of heart? What happened Roof! Maybe our wise philosopher friend in the OP can help us out...

There were things in the Senate bill that some senators didn't like. What's so hard to understand? Anyway you are arguing a moot point since the ACA is essentially dead and this thread is about impeachment. Make a new thread about Obamacare if you want.

I don't know, you'd have to ask them. If their motives were simply political, then of course I'm disappointed. But then, as a conservative, I expect that kind of thing from politicians and that's why I support limited government.

As someone always stumping for the big government liberal policy agenda, you seem to be a fan of bureaucrats holding big power and deciding who has to give what to whom, do what for whom, say what to whom, etc.

You want these guys all deciding everything. Impeaching Trump is the exact kind of thing YOU vote for politicians to do.

I don't expect politicians to be anything but self-serving politicians.

You do.

So I guess that's the difference here.

Why didn't your elected social champions impeach Trump?

Yes... it would be nice if we could hold our politicians accountable. You dont seem to be a fan of that which is why things will never improve. Democrats do a half ass job and thieve along the way. GOP thieves as well but does...no job. You literally elect people into careers that pay 200k salary a pop (plus bribes) and are in charge of running the public framework of this country... whose whole matra is to do...nothing. Whose whole goal is to NOT run anything successfully. Except military...which wastes trillions of our dollars so these guys can pocket the spoils of war.


You and people like ya are why we have one of, if not THE most incompetent government in the entire world. Its all you expect, and all you want confirmed by this poast. Sad!

You just...

You just literally said politicians should be hording authority and passing invasive, self-serving, unconstitutional laws on a regular basis... because they make $200k per year and we need to justify that expenditure.



I...
