    Politicians need to be slapped down whenever the opportunity arises. We have allowed then to believe they are rulers and not representatives. Everyone should support someone who doesn't kow-tow to these people.



    They use these hearings as a way to promote a partisan agenda. They aren't fact finding or working to develop solutions.

    Silly opinions like yours are what has created such problem in this country and why politics have been brought to stand still. The GOP has had to make a practice of pandering to low information and uneducated constituents.

    The fault is all on you.

    ^^ perfect example of abusing a member.^^ Insults, slurs............did I miss anything? Oh yeah, you have a link for all that crap you just spewed?
    and don't toss Mother Jones my way...............

    Who applauds AntiFa when they beat up a man in a wheel chair and then blocks aid to that citizen? OR threatens an 80 year old woman as she crosses a busy intersection?
    Who cheered when protestors burned cars and attacked police at Trump rallies?
    Who tries to silence the Truth by passing laws like it's illegal to call an illegal, illegal alien?
    Who's wanting to take the guns away so we cannot resist the plan to force us into the collective?
    Who wants open borders?
    Who hides illegal aliens that are wanted felons?
    Who promotes aggressive violence towards your fellow countrymen?
    Why, my goodness, that would be your party.
    How dare we stand against you.......................................

    So if politicians need to be slapped down whenever the opportunity arises, it's then okay to slap down the president since he is a politician.

    ...care to put your money where your posts are?
    Let's see how firm you are in this belief.

    I assumed you meant in 2020 Trump will loose the election, right?
    If that is what you meant, then let's put some money on it.
    $100 says Trump will win in 2020.
    call, raise.....or fold.


    Let's see how confident you are now.

    If the President starts treating citizens like serfs the way some members of Congress have been treating committee witnesses, yes. It would be appropriate to remind him he is a public servant, not our lord and master.

    We both mail the money to a moderator who holds onto it until after the election.
    The Mod would have both our addresses to mail the money to the winner.

    Very fair and impartial.
