    It is pretty ignorant thing to say that the Dems are protecting the Constitution. I would it hard to find anyone in the House or Senate that was trying to adhere to the Constitution. The Dems mildly less adhering to it than the Reps.

    President Trump is trampling the Constitution, abuse of power, attempted bribery, inviting foriegn interference in U.S. elections, emoluments violations, obstructing justice, obstruction of Congress etc. etc. and the republicans are complicit in their defense of that trampling. The Dems are standing fast against that, i.e. they are defending the Constitution.

    I am honestly confused as to whether it is gullibility on his part as you suggest, actual insanity plain and simple, some sort of really serious brainwashing... or perhaps it's a consequence of the speed of light possibly changing as it passes through water as your sig suggests.
    My guess is that it's a bit of brainwashing. He's simply mouthing right wing talking points without, as you said, having the slightest clue what he's talking about. It's like the christian apologetic who has little actual knowledge of the bible. They're believers because they grew up in the tribe, though they don't really understand any of it, their brains were impressed with the talking points, and they can no longer see outside of that box.

    The Dems are protecting the Constitution by adhering to their duty of holding the president accountable for asking Ukraine's president to investigate past and future political opponents for his own personal political gain. This is in violation of the constitution.

    I hear that Trump wants to pursue an effective strategy, which is not 'spread the massively overpriced costs around'.
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    And the US doesn't have any communists, nor would I support them if it did.
    You mean when Obama came up with his horrible one? yes they had ideas once that Obama never let come to the table. tort reform(get rid of frivolous lawsuits against healthcare providers that caused higher rates in malpractice insurance), transparency of costs(I.E. letting folks know what they were being charged for aspirin) , allowing people more choices for insurance by allowing people to go with health insurance from out of state they felt gave them more for less, plus letting folks keep their insurance when they changed employment.

    any other foolish questions you want to ask those of us who know what was and is going on in OUR own COUNTRY and watched the democrats attempt of taking over 1/3 of our economy?

    CPUSA (Communist Party of the United States of America) has been here since 1918 following the split within the Socialist Party of America. Back in the day they were a key player in the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) which latter became part of the AFL-CIO (the largest federation of unions in the U.S.). Much more recently they decided not to run their own candidate and with a bit of reluctance backed Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    He's a distant third on TWeb for me, behind JohnMartin and Magellan.

    I think it's misplaced trust, ignorance and laziness. Some-one told him the Democrats were wannabe communists, just like some-one showed him those creationist videos, and he didn't know better and didn't check.

    I fail to understand.

    What is wrong with having healthcare providers issue itemised bills so that patients can see how much they're being charged for aspirin?

    None of that is true except "President Trump"...
