I so look forward to the day that more than a handful of Freepers have the realization that the GOP was not blind to this or any of the other scandals. We don’t need to ask why dems do this crap. We have long known they are closeted dictators half way out already.
We need to be freaking the hell out as to why it is that the GOP continues to not SAY, much less DO anything about ANY OF IT.
Anyone want to say in public with a straight face the GOP did not know this? Anyone?
Then why do we collectively keep silent about it? We are doing the country or ourselves no favors to defend the people who REFUSE to defend us.
I can’t speak for anyone else but I don’t doubt this kind of thing has always gone on. What’s changed is that we are learning about it all at once and getting a clearer picture of the damage and ugliness.
For a long time I was fixated on terrorism - 9/11 changed me utterly. But the more I’ve discovered since then the less trust I’ve had in the ability of my government to protect me from “enemies, both foreign and domestic”.
I don’t care so much which party is responsible- I care that NO ONE IS DOING ANYTHING TO STOP IT.
The beltway GOP is just as vested in big, authoritarian government as the leftists are
