How are Trump and his GOP allies not in prison yet?

I don't get it. Every single day, it's proven that Trump is still committing crimes, and the DoJ is just letting him do it.

10 Republican members of Congress were at a meeting to overturn the election. 6 corruptly sought pardons. Why aren't they arrested?

There is no legitimate reason for Trump to not be in handcuffs right now. None. If any one of us did 1/1000th of the crap he's done, we'd be in jail for life.

Question for those in or close to the military

In the event that violence increases, especially if the Supreme Court ends voting rights next year, what is your opinion on how the military would view things?

It's commonly believed like most law enforcement that the military is very Republican. There were members of the military at the insurrection.

In your experience, do most members of the military respect their oath and hate the rise of right-wing fascism? Would they stand up against the MAGA terrorists trying to create a dictatorship?

Supreme Court just announced they're ending Democracy next year

They're taking an election-law case that would give legislatures the power to control all elections, meaning any Republican state can just block Democratic wins with zero consequences.

It will effectively end voting rights.

Scary comments from Rep. Clyburn to WaPo

We must restore the 2nd Amendment to its original intent

4 mass shootings today in less than 24 hours. Scalia and the Republicans' absolute butchering of the 2nd Amendment has massively damaged this country.

But we all know, there is no way we're getting a new Amendment.

So, our best chance to change the Constitution is what Republicans are doing with things like Roe. Reinterpret the Constitution.

If we can get a majority of pro gun law Dems on the Supreme Court, we can have them overturn Heller and restore the 2nd Amendment to the original intent, which included heavy restrictions on guns.

Here is an interesting read on how the Founders and Colonies viewed gun laws when the 2nd Amendment was adopted. Registration required. No general open or concealed carry allowed. No loaded weapons in the home. No stand your ground laws. And a loyalty oath was required.

How do we combat Republican terrorism?

Ted Nugent was at the Trump/Dr. Oz rally last night calling for Trump supporters to murder Democrats.

Why isn't the FBI arresting Ted Nugent and the people at that rally for inciting violence? How do we contact DoJ/FBI and get them involved in this?

I feel incapable of doing anything about all this.

Why have no higher ups been arrested?

MSNBC has been covering the John Eastman emails all day. He carefully orchestrated a plan to throw out ballots in enough areas to give Trump the win.

Why hasn't he been arrested yet? Why hasn't Mark Meadows been arrested? Why hasn't Navarro been arrested? Why hasn't Trump been arrested?

If you or I did a fraction of what these people did, we'd already be sitting in jail.


This really feels like the Mueller report all over again. We think something is going to happen, and never does.

What is Garland and the DoJ doing? There is no justification for zero arrest warrants for these people.

Are Americans going to tolerate living under Fascism?

I'm having a hard time trying to comprehend what's about to happen. Will 70% of Americans tolerate Republicans turning us into the Republic of Gilead or Nazi Germany?

It feels like Civil War is inevitable to me. I honestly think we need to reform as separate countries, but I know that's not a popular opinion.

Since precedent no longer matters...

If Democrats get the majority on the Supreme Court again, we can overturn Heller and restrict guns again like we have for most of US history going back to the 1700s.

3 Trump-appointed fascist judges uphold Florida racial voter suppression

We really are living in an authoritarian country. I guess most Americans are just going to accept that fact?
