    Is that why you support impeaching Biden?

    In a civil trial. I can hold two thoughts at the same. I know that Simpson is a murderer, but also know that he’s not guilty criminally, I also know he’s guilty in civil court. I think that criminal conviction supersedes civil conviction. Just to be clear, if Trump is convicted of insurrection and congress disqualifies him then I will accept that, unless the Supreme Court overturns it.

    Do you think that a person who holds political power should be held to a higher standard than the average citizen?

    No, I think that they should be held to the same standards under the Constitution. They should have equal protection under the law.

    Every American citizen should be held to the same rights under the constitution, including terrorists who are American citizens . Period. The constitution is absolute law of the land. If you are a Christian then you you should believe what Jesus says, “render unto Ceaser what is Ceaser and unto god thins that which are God. That is my belief.

    Trump won the primary last night. I'm sure you guys are going to enforce the law to prevent his candidacy any time now. :waiting:

    I’d say that this is an area where we could agree to disagree, but let’s face it: There’s more than enough evidence to convict Trump on any number of shitty things that he did before becoming president that he was never charged with, that if you or I did, we’d be in “Federal pound me in the ass” prison, that he never got charged, so I’d be willing to have him subjected to that same standard as we would.

    There is fog’s law Whoopi will onset to the best of my ability, but there is man’s law. If I have to choose m, I’m going to obey god’s law. Fortunately because of free choice, I can do both accordingly.

    So, what you're saying is that man's law takes priority over what Jesus might have said. :chris:

    On the other hand it is only 1am on my side of the continent and I am doing important research into late 20th century cinematography.

    Because a central thrust of the Irish peace process was to get him and his colleagues into office. His direct successors are on course to be heads of government both sides of the Irish border soon. :ramen:

    Just because you are too ignorant to see how trump and his supporters are trying to subvert democracy does not mean opposing that is anti-democratic.

    What is fascinating is that you see treachery in Biden, but not trump.

    Guys, this dumbass doesn’t even know what an insurrection or democracy is. There’s no point in engaging with him further.

    Agreed in general, but there should be more reflection on what a democracy is, or ought to be. There's going to be an election between two candidates who are wildly unpopular with the public and both of whom have a policy platform way out of sync with public priorities. This would be the case even if Trump were barred from running. It's fairly clear that while there is voting and a lot of the trappings of democracy, the system as it operates has filters in place - financial, ideological and others - which do not lead to the will of the people being implemented.

    Definitely! The US federal government is no longer the democratic institution it was set up to be. It’s been bought, lock, stock, and barrel, by the wealthy. The American people have no voice in our government. It’s a facade. So, we’re forced to argue with idiots like @Steal Your Face because they believe the nonsense coming from the marketing teams.

    I guess there are some rules laid down by the actress who played Guinan or something? Other than that, not really sure what the fuck FF is on about, except he doesn't know what an insurrection is.

    Apparently he thinks it needed to be successful. I'm sure all those dictators Trump loves so much definitely wouldn't have had the members of failed coups shot at dawn by that "logic".

    If the billionaire class were so unbeatable, Elon wouldn't be throwing his tantrums, retail stores wouldn't be scared liquid-shitless of even the microscopic possibility of unions, and Mitt Romney would have been president in 2012 thanks to the magic of Koch Brothers money.

    And if elections don't matter, what was all the "he's a socialists!! FEMA death camps!!" conspiracy screaming over Obama for?
    He was moderate as fuck, and even moderate was too commie for the Nazis.
    And they were very obviously scared of him.
    Unbeatable people aren't scared.

    The rich are beatable.
    They just don't want you to know it.
    They give it all away with their blubbering though.
