    I honestly think the only real hope is that the democrats with bigly, gerrymander the GoF into oblivion, and hope that after 10 years enough of the crazies have died to force a change in the party by 2030.

    I'd be perfectly understanding of anyone in this thread who thinks that's too cold hearted of a perspective, however.

    Thank you for once again demonstrating that leftists are being duplicitous when they pretend to oppose gerrymandering.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Sure it worried a military commander. Why wouldn't it? Your problem is that you're assuming, wrongly of course, that it's not possible to be worried about something that is unverified. Remember, this same commander also said that it was never proven to him.

    As for telling our allies, again your unfounded assumption is that we would only do that if a claim is true, but it could also be a case of "Hey, this popped up on our radar. We don't have any confirmation, but let us know if you hear anything."

    The fact is that everything we know about this at the moment is that it's uncorroborated. That's the word from the Commander in Chief on down.

    I oppose gerrymandering of course. I just oppose fascists having power more.

    But do *you* oppose gerrymandering, may I ask?

    Drumpf just admitted in a video-taped interview that he's never talked to Putin about Russian-paid bounties on US troops.

    Conservative silence is proof of their contempt for American soldiers.
    I can solve the problem of evil without interfering with anyone's free will. So can your God, but he refuses. This is why I'm His moral superior.
