    So you're arguing it wasnt rigged? Like I said, you and Hillary.

    Dont bother voting in the DNC primary next year. Your vote doesnt matter.

    But you knew that already.

    Now... your turn.

    Do they have the right to issue subpoenas or question witnesses?

    The only media that trump thinks is good is those who praise him and say good things about him whether or not they are true.

    Yes the rules did, but it smacks of the secret star chamber proceedings. What do the Democrats have to hide but their own Iniquity's.

    Why are the Democrats holding hearings in the secret Star Chamber style? What do they have to hide?

    Do the Democrats in the Senate?
    While the committee issues subpoenas all members get to question witnesses.

    But their questions and answers are never heard. Secret hearings befitting a 3rd world nation the Democrats are trying to turn America into.

    The Constitution for the feds doesn't control local elections, or maybe you could point out where in the Constitution where it covers the election of school board members.....Go ahead I'll wait.

    they predicated EVERYTHING bad could happen so when anything bad happens they can yell told ya so. It’s the same tactic used when Global Warming was shifted to climate change. Before it sort of had to warm for you to call it warming. With Climate Change, ANY shift in anything is a man made disaster. Easier to sell it. It’s all Marketing 101 tactics as old as the first time someone decided to sell their first shiny rock.

    Probably the same reason Trump & company are refusing to allow certain people to testify and refusing to turn over various documents. It's a two-way street partner.

    Sorry, would you want to be dragged into a hearing with anonymous accusers in a secret hearing? That's something they do in 3rd world dictatorships. But, that's where the Democrats are today. It should be a teachable moment for everyone who cherishes liberty and democracy. Your argument is ludicrous.

    If I'd done nothing wrong, sure. All I'd have to do is tell the truth. How tough can it be? I think my argument makes perfect common sense.

    Repealing the 1st and 2nd amendment would be the end to democracy.

    What a ridiculous statement. I am not going to get into the difference between a Republic and a Democracy - lets leave it at "democratic process". We have not had a functional democratic process in decades and that disfunction grows bigger every year.

    There is no such thing as a functional democratic process - when there is no fair and free media - the electorate does not understand what the founding principles are and what constitutes legitimate Gov't authority.

    Our politicians are "Selected" not "Elected" - and that has been the case for some time.

    Trump just put a few more nails in the coffin of freedom and liberty - while increasing the power of Gov't - and the Establishment ... urging congress to reauthorize the NSA en mass domestic spying program.

    Freedom of speech, information and the Press continue to be attacked under Trump.

    We live in State Sponsored Propaganda land.. the MSM is controlled by the Establishment international financiers and National Oligarchs who dictate foreign and domestic policy.

    It's startling to me that we have no functional federal election board now when we face greater challenges to our democracy than we have faced since the civil war - when we have an administration that has refused to acknowledge the rights of congressional oversight, when the president had his campaign managed by TWO foreign operatives, when he's explicitly and admittedly used the national defense of an ally (Ukraine) against a long term enemy (Russia) to coerce our ally to attack Biden, who is running for his office.

    There is no time in our history when we would have tolerated this.

    Yet, TODAY we have a Republican party staunchly backing THIS as what America means by "democracy"!!!

    Used car salesmen on oyster shell car lots are thought of more highly than the MSM.
