    A) It's not Y'all, I will only vote Democrat for the period of time people like Trump rule the GOP because it is the lesser of two evils. But I am fiscally and morally conservative.

    B) There is nothing being made up, except for the lie there is something being made up. Trump tried to coerce the Ukrainian government into finding dirt on Biden, at the detriment of US national policy and the Ukrainian effort to keep their own country and their bid to be part of NATO. Consider why is Trump trying to convince people abuse of power is not a crime?

    Indeed - as Trump gains confidence he will not lose the impeachment, that those around him will stay with him and so he more and more comes clean on what he did, it is more and more a judgement of those that continue to support him in spite of the fact he did what he did, is doing what he is doing.

      Are you sure you aren't a leftist because accusing others of doing what you are in fact doing yourself is part of their M.O.
      If that is what I'm doing and that makes me a 'leftist', then you must be a leftist too.

      As with my last post where I placed equal blame on both sides, you came back as if I've only assigned blame to one side. Is that on purpose or are you having difficulties processing information these days?

He's not only an abuser of his power, he's treasonous.
        Oh baloney. He wanted Burisma investigated, not Grampa Joe himself. And no one has tried to SHIFT anything. Both Russia AND Ukraine interfered in 2016.

            You are right, which is why Trump will win and maybe even the House will become Rebublican.

            Oh the irony Jim spews out.

                  It was just an observation. Not laying blame.

                    Nope - that doesn't fly. You said:

                    That is laying blame. You are saying they are at fault, that they don't respect the constitution. You've judged them without trying to understand them first. Again, that is not laying down the sword, that is wielding it.

                      Wrong, Jim. It is an observation. They admit that they believe the Constitution is a "living document". Logically speaking, that means they do not respect it as-is and need to grow and change it.

                              I am pretty sure the reason we have a two party system that constantly fights, was by design. That way government is kept too busy infighting to do any real harm to the country.
