    I think everyone who commits violence against another outside the bounds of self defense or defense of another should be subject to prosecution, regardless of their political persuasion.

    Good. Itís a shame that most of our Republican politicians donít feel the same way.

    Have you polled them or did some TV propagandist tell you that?

    Iím sure Trump appreciates jpís efforts to keep his legend alive, but I donít think we need to worry about where the next bogeyman will come from. If history teaches us anything, is that there will always be another one in the pipeline. It appears Ron Desantis is already being groomed for the role.

    I am not Alan, but the people who rioted in Washington D.C.and threateing politicians there, and damaging government property, need to be prosecuted for their crimes.

    I would like to see the same thing happened to rioters and damagers here, but there is little political will for it.

    Trumpism is an ongoing problem.

    Adam Kinzinger is one of the few decent Republicans who have called Trump and his bootlickers out on the Big Lie. We need more like him.

    Jp, are you at all cheered at the thought of many oldster Trumpers becoming incapacitated by Covid19 because they are not vaccinated? I dont mean “cheered” as in happy they they are sick or dead, but “ cheered” because they won't be voting.

    God this is exactly right, Donald Trump is thrilled that Donald Trump resides in jp’s head, “keeping his legend alive.”

    let it go, bro. It is best for you, for me, and for our country.

    When Ron Johnson says things like “by and large, it was peaceful protest,” while arguing that “it wasn’t… an insurrection.” and “To say there were thousands of armed insurrectionists breaching the Capitol intent on overthrowing the government is just simply a false narrative.” I take him at his word. And in this case he's an anti-American shitbag lying to protect the leader of his party. But I'm sure Wisconsin's republican voters are perfectly fine with that.

    No, what's best for our country is to make sure that republicans are never again allowed to try and steal an election with their lies about voter fraud. It's wishful thinking to pretend that if the republicans had controlled the house that they would not have installed trump as the dictator in January. And if they get a chance to try again under those circumstances it's perfectly reasonable to expect that they will do so. I really don't want to be coming here in 3 1/2 or 7 1/2 years to say "I told you so."
