    I'm admittedly cynical enough to believe that virtually everything in Washington DC ties to political advantage. Diogenes would have required an endless supply of lantern oil to have been successful in his search in DC.

    It's sarcasm that comes with a notable dollop of truth.

    Sure....but at some point enough is enough. I texted with my old cubicle partner today. He is a die hard Republican and conservative. He said anyone who who entered the Capitol should have been shot. Whether or not I agree, I appreciate that he has some beliefs beyond rooting for his red team. Isn't there some point at which reasonable people can agree that the trump path is horribly wrong, regardless of your political party ?

    Just in good natured fun. But you know that--the GIF was for others who might not be as insightful.

    Do you or anyone else think what trump is doing is good for anyone ?

    That is what is most dissapointing/distressing to me. How can any conservative/Republican watch this shit and not wake up and turn away from it. Leave that asshole behind and be a conservative party based on principles, not a cult of personality

    I would disagree for the most part, but at least i could understand. Blindly following trump is really tough for me to comprehend. And the number of people who do is depressing

    Here's the dirty little secret: Republicans don't actually stand for anything and the trite platitudes they've foisted upon the rest of us for the last 40 years have been made in bad faith.

    What's MOST distressing to me is the idea that our vision of separation of powers was all a lie. While it didn't happen this time, the concepts were in place. President does *whatever he wants*, president appoints judges who say that the president can do whatever he wants. President continues doing whatever he wants, up to and including making himself a dictator. It didn't happen this time, but it *could have*.

    Where's the checks and balances?

    the least you could do is switch to your alt if you are going to have a conversation with yourself here.
