Bigger than Watergate?

Post by Cybrludite » Fri Jan 19, 2018 7:42 am

Looks like the Democrats' chickens are coming home to roost. Looks like there is proof that the Fusion GPS file was used to justify a FISA warrant targeting the Trump campaign.

Yeah pretty much this. The last administration allowed people to be killed in Mexico to usurp our 2nd Amendment rights... and no one cared.

They are not even going to look at this.

Declassify it, and release everything to both the so-called media, AND online. Including names, party affiliations, etc. Have Drudge and Fox provide links to it.

Then sit back and watch the bugs scurry.......

Democrats don't care. The media cover for them, and the people are too emotionally driven and free of the ability for rational thought to be able to think about it. The media will distract the people with some other National Enquirer type story.

Republicans are too scared of their own shadows to do anything meaningful.

We haven't been a nation of laws for years, so the corrupt power brokers are increasing the daring of their egregious acts.

We are a nation of a corrupt elite, demagogues, mobs, and a hapless remnant who understand what our society and country should be.

I seem to be pessimistic today.

Much bigger.

And I'm afraid it won't matter. Look at how many people *voted* for Hitlery, knowing full well what she is, and just not giving a fuck.

Although it does matter in that it pushes the needle that much closer to a Convention of States or a Lexington and Concord moment.

So it's gone from 'Civil War 2.0 is practically inevitable, and you won't enjoy it' to 'Civil War 2.0 is practically inevitable, and you won't enjoy it'. So looked at that way, it doesn't matter.

From a slightly different view, it doesn't matter in the whole sense of 'can wake up the blue half of our population from their toxic fantasy without having to kill them, before their fantasy destroys us all'.

If the only way you can find where it matters is as an additional indication of 'yep, gotta kill 'em', I'd prefer for now to leave it at it doesn't matter. Blind unrealistic Pollyanna optimism, I know, but I'm known for that. :lol: :lol: :lol:

OK, I was getting too pessimistic and argumentative. Never seen that before. :?

There is a good way this does matter. And that is to the conviction and morale of the remaining sane people. Another reminder that opposing the left is the absolutely correct thing to do, that the left has achieved unprecedented (in the US, anyway) heights of corruption and deliberate abuse of government power, and that purging them root and branch and never allowing them access to governmental power isn't extreme or cruel in the least.

Another example of how Trump has been an unexpected complete fucking miracle that we do not really deserve.
