    Later in the unbiased Trump loving Vox article:
    "In January 2017, the top US agencies — including the CIA and FBI — put out a public report saying that “Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election,” adding, “We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.”

    And when Mueller released his report in April, he had an entire section devoted to Russia’s efforts to meddle throughout the campaign. He followed up during his only public appearance as the special counsel on Wednesday by reiterating “there were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election. That allegation deserves the attention of every American.”

    Did any thinking person not realize the author was trying to imply Muller said Russia tried to elect Trump?
    He said they were trying to interfere.

    They didn't buy my vote, nor any Trump voters. People that liked Trump, liked Trump...... a bunch of squeaks here and their on internet blogs din't change anything. Russia probably discovered how ineffective that was. They will probably try different methods next time.
    "Thanks" :rolleyes: .............I suppose, to the Trump witch hunt, we are much more aware of what they are able and not able to do.

    I'm done with this stupid tirade. I have too much on my plate to try and convince anyone how to vote or how dangerous Trump is. A president should unite the country, not divide it with hate speech, bigotry and fear mongering.

    Worst thing is taking the news seriously. They make stories out of what are really non stories.
    The media montra is constantly telling how Trump is destroying America when it's obviously not true. ................ and he hasn't. Economy is great, employment is great, ethnic employment is great. .......and yet the racist brags about it. Kind of silly ain't it?
    The media is wearing no cloths, yet 1/3 of the population takes them seriously. They need to find news stories instead of spending the majority of their news hour fanning the flames against Trump.
    The economy will re-elect him, then it's somebody else's turn. In the following election, I can't see anyone on either side right now that I'd pick. The Democrats have all united in socialist mumbo jumbo a, tax the rich, tax the corporations......... yet Trump dropped their taxes and unemployment and the economy is very steady. This just proves that what he's doing is working. The Democrat threats of raising taxes on business and corporations and forcing minimum wages on them, and forcing them out of business through whoops like carbon taxes and other regulations will immediately stop them from expanding. That right there will make unemployment rise and business get hurt.
    What's happening now is working isn't it? The only thing wrong is watching the news ............other than the weather. Actually game shows have gotten anti-Trump political now too, so don't watch them either. It's hard to escape.
    This isn't that big of a deal, we will have elections in the future and life will go on just like it always has.

    @Real CandaceO

    To the people who fly private but lecture us about the environment.
    To the people who live in gated communities but lecture us about building walls.
    To the people who travel with armed guards & lecture us about guns:
    Your bottomless hypocrisy is why America chooses Trump.

    But he is the only democratic candidate that's not an extremist. The rest want's to ruin the country with tens of trillions in rediculous "save the earth" mandates on the taxpayers and free everything for all. We are already closing in on the tipping point because of the debt. Neither side seems to care.

    Thanks for keeping free speech alive. I was a bit ticked when this shut down. It's just fun poking each other with our points of view and knowing full well that the other side is always wrong. Not my side, the other side. :D

    I'm not fully happy with any of the candidates running right now. I like some of the ideas from different candidates but then each of them have some stupid things as well. Beto's plan to "buy back" guns is going to get people killed if he tried to enforce it-- but I don't think he'll win.

    Meanwhile the RNC is going full stupid mode by trying to cancel primaries so other Republican candidates can't run against Trump. That's just as crappy as the DNC trying to stop anyone else from running against Hillary. I think the main reason she didn't gripe about the election being rigged when she ran against Trump was bc she probably knew it was rigged when she ran against Bernie & that investigations into it would blow up in her face. I realize we are not in a true democracy, but it's not right to take away that choice from people. Republicans deserve to be able to vote in the primaries. If they want to choose Trump again, that's on them-- but at least they should have the choice. If they want someone else then that is good too.

    Media is wasting time blathering about Trump using a sharpie on a map. CNN was on when I was at the Chinese buffet & it was such mindless drivel the entire time. Ok, he used a sharpie, big deal. Move on. I think the fact that the House is launching impeachment inquiries this week is more relevant news. Then the next big distraction is the non-news about some fake meeting planned at Camp David with the Taliban leaders that was supposedly canceled-- only it was never even planned & file it under "even the Care Bears don't care". I'm more concerned about the emoluments violations & the wasting of military $$$ to fund the Trump resorts because that is actually a problem. Also, the redirecting of military funds (& relief funds for Puerto Rico) to go to the border wall is asinine. Mexico still is not paying for it. I won't even get started on the tariffs...

    The Democrats are just posting strongly worded letters & tweets but not really taking too much action.

    The protestors of Hong Kong are showing more American spirit these days-- waving US flags, singing our national anthem, & chanting.

    Slime like that should never ever should be invited on our soil.
    And now Trumps lover in North Korea keeps shooting off missiles with no consequence.
    Trumps the worst ever in diplomacy.

    Do you really see anyone to vote for? Or will it be another "lesser of two evils" election.
    I really don't like Trump. But I don't see a Democrat I could even think of voting for.
    Maybe I won't vote.

    What if a POTUS coupled the Patriot Act and a red flag law together? They could see what books you read and movies you watch and decide you are too dangerous to own guns.
