    The problem is DC as a whole, we have far too many politicians that have been there too long and stopped representing the country a long time ago. With the way districts are made it is extremely hard to unseat a sitting member of Congress.

    Quite the severe TDS.....if such was the case Hillary and her aides would be locked up. Comey, Clapper, Brennan, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Baker, would be locked up. Not to mention plenty of Democrats.

    But then credibility was never your strong point.

    It was Barack Hussein O who DID use the DOJ and FBI as an American Gestapo.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Article V convention of States to propose amendments. It can happen. But we, the nation are running out of time. If you love liberty you know what you must do.

    Absolute RUBBISH!
    As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. --H.L. Mencken,
