I do not care for Trump as a human. I will take a wait and see approach to his tenure as prez to see if he changes the way our gov does business for the better. The bar has been set really low.So, forget about Trump for a second...are you saying we should all let it go, and never implicate our elected officials in any crime? That's the definition of 'above the law'.
Eisenhower told us to beware of the Military Industrial Complex (tool of the Deep State) in the 50ís. This is not a Trump made topic or concept by any stretch.
Is there any decent percentage of our elected officials that are not criminals of the highest order?
I am fascinated by the pass being given to the work done by our government over the last 100 years. Too many people are acting like they have been doing a great job compared to our current leadership. News flash its been a joke for 100 years. Murderers, theives and treasonous despicable behavior is all we have from our past presidents and elected officials.
Where was all the complaining and finger pointing for the last several decades?
Just to get a feel for some of this check out ďConfessions of an economic hitmanĒ by John Perkins. It will open your eyes if you are interested in truth and facts about our governments participation in crazy criminal activity. Its a good place to start but there is no shortage of info on this subject.
By the way, I see it was your first post: Welcome to CB forums where politics is the sport of the off-season.
Hey thanks for the warm welcome! Posted here way way back in the early days but before one of the purges. So I guess its a welcome back.
Definately not suggesting we let it all go and appreciate that you said ďforget about Trump for a secondĒ because that is an important exercise. Im confident(and saddened) that with enough effort we could find dispicable behavior and criminal activity behind anyone powerful enough to get to the White House.
What I dont want is a return to regular business if/when Trump is removed. IMO our governments idea of regular business has been and is a complete failure. Its so bad that I have found myself rooting in a sense for Trump despite how I feel about him as a person. Hoping against hope that he could effect some change in the nature of our governments behaviors being that he wasnt politically indoctrinated to ďthe processĒ
I cant understand why we havent been this upset about our leadership all along. All of a sudden we are concerned that our president is likely a criminal?
Im glad everyone is finally ticked off. Ive been mad for 30 plus years about it. I just hope we place the same level of scrutiny and rightousness on all of our elected officials and begin to demand that our leadership gets their collective you know what together.
Despite all the noise it still feels like dumping Trump would lead right back to the belly of the beast for us regular folk and our country. Hoping against hope again that I am wrong.
Cant wait for what I hope will be a glorious Celticís season to start for a much needed distraction.
