The exoneration will give him carte Blanche to openly ask Russia...or any other nation to ratf$$$ this election.

It would have to be an ally who could be of help against Russia. I don't know. This is uncharted territory and the Democrats will likely not employ an unethical election strategy. But make no mistake: Ethics aside - It will now be legal to invite foreign help to get elected.

all of the lawsuits against him have been appealed to the Supreme Court and he is even getting stays on those decisions until after the election.
Even then, what authority makes him abide by a Supreme Court ruling against him? He owns the attorney general who is threatening anybody with an axe to grind.
He is aware of this, and the election will be flipped by rigged voting machines, and there will be witnesses that turn whistleblowers that get silenced and all Court cases get buried for years.
It is over. Money and fear have beaten moral justice again

It sometimes sickens me that the left doesn’t play dirty as the right always has, we don’t lie with such ease, even to cover another lie, just repeat it over and over and somehow it becomes fact.
Packing the courts with biased judges is like buying off the refs in football. Allowing an obvious cheat go unpunished because he is croud favorite, plus the jury seems to be walking away with a cash bonus.....But if we stoop to cheat just as they do, there leaves no integrity in the game, in life, at all. What is the point of a law if it isn’t enforced?
They are liars and cheats and for those who show a shed of guilt or remorse, they shall be expelled or exploited for their weakness.
Why can’t it be as obvious to everyone else as it is to me?

History and Civics, patriotism, pride are all GONE. People care more about how many "likes" their cat photo got on Fakebook than they care about the country. I am glad I am not going to live for much longer. If that were not the case I would happily jump off a bridge after Election Day if we lose. I have said this for 3 straight years and am NOT joking. My family and friends know I am completely serious.

Oh well, I wanted to live long enough to take care of my little senior dog and I will, so I am happy. I am also happy I chose to never have kids. I would make the same choice now in a nanosecond since I would add tRump to the top of my list for reasons not to procreate.

I have found myself apologizing to my children and grandchildren about the world they are being left to survive in.
I am more concerned about the effects of global warming but they also will have to live in the age of fascism. Our generation fucked it up for them.

I must say that I am glad to read that birth rates are dropping for the first time since 1900 and Climate Change was the number one reason people gave for their decision. People have more sense than I thought.
