Man, I bet Senator Braun is going to be so embarrassed when nothing happens to him.

I can't even be assed enough to post the gif.

Absolutely nothing will happen. Biden is handing this country to the fascists.

Eh, that's not even near the line for the GOP. You have to go waaaaaaay over there past Hastart, Gym Jordan, and Gaetz.

That's the thing... This country has always been run by the fascists. The system was designed to throw just enough of a bone out there to make everyone think we have a representative system without actually governing like a representative system.

Indiana. Not even once.
I moved back for family. Going to try and wait four more years to get vested in state retirement, but man. Not sure I can make it. We'll see how the Nazis do in 2022. This country and this state in particular is scaring me.

There is no line and no bottom for fascist scum like today's GQP.

Which, it always bears repeating, is the greatest thread the United States has ever faced.

Ahh yes, because what should be done is the Chief Executive should be loudly directing judicial actions against members of the opposition party in a different branch of government.

Didn't you just have four years of creeping authoritarianism? Why are you so damned and determined to continue down that road?  Is it because you're an authoritarian at heart, you just want to be the one directing the power?

What the fark is this?

No I am asking, what the fark is this?

This is threadjacking and attacking the dems in a thread about republican money laundering and illegal loans.

Assholes like you, and shiat like you post are the reason my adblock went back on and I will never pay this site a damn cent.

Try sticking to the actual topic, troll.

You can call me a troll, but you know it's true. The GOP cheats and the Democrats do nothing about it.

But if we find out about a Dem abusing campaign finances? Then something will happen.

The game is rigged. And I'm the troll for pointing it out, because rigging the game is normal.

You're being called out for obvious threatshiatting, and for be a willing authoritarian.

You want to not be called those things?  Stop doing those things.  It's not that difficult.

It scares a lot of people. Save your money and get out, man.

Indiana is a dead end.

Guys....I know that we're all pretty frustrated that they haven't perp walked Donny yet. We need to stick together because this entire thing is a stalling tactic trying to divide us.

/ There is a reason why nobody has ever really gone after the decades of double-dealing at Trump Org before now. This was always going to be difficult to accomplish.

You came in and shiat on Biden which is off topic.

You suck the right wing dick to attack the dems in a thread about right wing bribes and money laundering.

You are worthless. You are pathetic.

You are a right wing troll and no one is buying your, both sides or anything else.

This shiat was old 6 years ago, it was REALLY old during the election, it was WORSE during the trump admin, and now, now I am just done with the bullshiat and going to be calling it out constantly.

You wanna thread shiat, well I got a wheelbarrow and a shovel and will shovel shiat on each of your posts until the farking cows come home.

Ahhh yes.  I don't support authoritarianism regardless of which side wants to implement it, mostly because I don't trust any of you with that level of power.  I believe the actual laws should be followed, vs just cutting them all down to get at the Devil, only to have nothing to hide behind when the Devil turns around on me (you likely won't get the reference, which is just oh so telling), which, in your addled brain, means I want nothing to happen.

Thankfully, you, and people who think as poorly as you do not yet have that type of power, because as can be plainly seen, you'd abuse it all in the worst traditions of the dictator.  Perhaps you'd be more comfortable somewhere else. Maybe a Democratic People's Republic of somewhere...

Worst case is that this guy pays a fine from m his campaign funds that were illegal in the first place. Much bullshiat, so stupid.

The FEC is the only thing keeping people from doing The Producers in politics. Raise too much money, embezzle through creative consultation, and lose, then the FEC comes to investigate. If you win, it's dog with a bumper time and you're stuck with it.

Exhibit A.
A Centrist policing left-wing views because it might hurt Manchin's feelings.

It's true, Biden's Administration is not doing much about voting rights, the DOJ is doing squat nothing about white supremacist extremist organizations and Congress is completely refusing to pass legislation to change or improve the material conditions of the working class.

Fascism is coming, y'all are just too dumb to see it because you're view everything through rose tinted lenses and believe in some weird form of American exceptionalism. Trump is going to look like a sane, but dumb, president in comparison to whatever comes next.

Well, that's a lot of words replying to a bunch of things unsaid and unfounded, so bravo.

Sorry I'm not so willing to jump on the authoritarian train as you are.  Who knows?  Maybe your authoritarian future won't turn out like all the examples we have throughout human history (and hell, human fiction), but I'm not holding my breath.

I don't care about Manchin's feelings, or yours for that matter.  The rest of your rambling is just as unrelated to the topic at hand, and is thusly disregarded.  You want the appearance of victory, but don't want to do the hard work to actually earn victory, because it's actual work, not whining on the internet, and having to work with people not as committed to violating the law as you are is anathema to you.

Your cynicism will be your undoing, your willingness to betray your values (if you truly have any) will be a fine epitaph.

He's a politician, so that already means he lies often. He's a Republican, so that also means frequent lies.  He's a REPUBLICAN POLITICIAN, so that means he barely bothers to cover it up, because 98% of the time there are no consequences, and he knows that.  So he lies even more, and transparently.

You're an idiot. This both sides are bad but the Democratic president is double secret bad is just the same old treason and you're either corrupt, ignorant or both for claiming its relevance. "We" are the arbiters of this. No one else. You, specifically are unconditionally to blame. Get up on your back legs and help keep our hope and promise going or lay back down with the worms.
