How primary elections work in Illinois.

Here in Illinois, in a primary election, we choose either a Democratic ballot, or a Republican ballot.
We don't register as a member of any party. A voter can ask for either ballot.

Do any of the other States operate this way?

When the 2020 primaries come around, I want all my fellow IL DUers to ask for a Republican ballot,
and vote for anyone on there but Trump. Don't let that prick make it onto the ballot on Election Day.

Personally, I'm voting for whomever the Democratic candidate is in the General Election, so I'm not worried about
taking a primary vote away from any particular Democratic hopeful. I'm more interested in trying to help crush Trump's candidacy.

It took a while, but I read the 2nd section of Mueller's report.

I'm no lawyer, so I had to do some re-reading, and searching for legal definitions.
There were serious attempts to obstruct the Mueller investigation.
Trump, and others, are criminals. The evidence is in the report.

A starting point to learn who, and what, William Barr is.

It's important to know exactly who this character is , and why he does what he does.

"Senate Republicans Won't Convict" is a very lame excuse.

Of course, the GOP won't convict. That's not as important as one may think.

Impeachment inquiry and proceedings will bring a lot of information to light.
The public will learn more and more about the criminality of Trump as the proceedings go on.
There will be damning evidence for all to see. The GOP will have to face the public.
At the same time, Trump, GOP Sens, and GOP Reps will have to try and run a campaign for re-election.
The press will hound the WH, and the Republicans. Major chaos, any way you look at it.
Once all the evidence is in the public's ears and eyes, the GOP will have this choice ---
Convict Trump, or attempt to convince an angry nation why they shouldn't.

Barr isn't defending Trump. He's defending a right wing coup.

Why would anyone risk their career over Trump? Trump is temporary, and only one person.
Right wingers wouldn't think twice about hanging one person out to dry.
Trump is a puppet. We need to cut off the hands of the puppeteers.
There is much more at stake here than the WH. The Mueller Report is being suppressed
to prevent further investigation which would expose a lot of nasty shit, and a lot of people.

Those involved in this coup need to be exposed and dealt with very, very harshly.
