I am a Trump supporter. In today's world that means I am a very dangerous person. I am in favor of dirty air, trampling on the rights of people, hating gays and illegals and basically anyone who is different from me. I am accused of espousing the ideology of Adolf Hitler.

In reality, I am an 80-year-old grandmother of 11 and great-grandmother of five. I live a peaceful life, pay my taxes and my bills and basically don't bother anyone. I would love to put a Trump 2020 sign on my lawn, buy a MAGA hat, and put a bumper sticker on my car. Do you know why I won't? Because I'm afraid. Yes, I'm afraid of the far left, which has moved so far to the left that anyone opposing them is their enemy. I'm afraid my car and my home will be vandalized. This is what my country has come to. I am afraid to express an opinion that is not keeping with the current ideology. I grew up in a free country where a free expression of opinion was tolerated. I have lived long enough to know that we are heading down a dangerous course. No longer are you free to express your opinion. The founding fathers believed that they might not agree with what you say, but they would defend to the death your right to say it.

Workhard, how did Obama make a mockery of the constitution with DACA? Trump tried to add the citizenship question to the census when Article One of the Constitution explicitly put the census in the hands of Congress, not the president.


workhardgetahead

Just watch, DACA will be unconstitutional. Trump tried to make deal with the Dums but they didnt want to put a limit on all of those illegal votes


amerigirl

Could you stop with the name calling, it is so childish. Does your mom know you're doing it? Trump took away DACA to use as a bargaining chip, you would have to be blind to see that, everyone, even repubs were against it then. He took it only to have something to hold over the Dems head to get what he wanted, which is why they didn't fold. I have no clue what you are talking about "illegal votes" they can not vote in Federal elections and right now there isn't a state that allows them to vote in state elections. There some municipalities that allow them but very few.


amerigirl

Workhard, Wrong again, he has been under an impeachment inquiry since Nancy Pelosi announced that she had formally started an impeachment inquiry. The sitting speaker of the House must give her/his approval for impeachment proceedings. There are no votes for an inquiry. The committees do their investigations and if the find articles they want to present as articles of impeachment they vote on them within that committee. Those articles are turned over to the judiciary committee. If the Judiciary Committee approves any articles of impeachment, the full House will vote on the charges against the president. At least 218 out of 435 representatives are needed to approve any of the articles of impeachment to impeach and move it to trial in the senate. Then the Senate passes a resolution setting trial procedure and how to handle witness testimony and evidence. Typically, members of the House Judiciary Committee manage the argument for impeachment and the president has his own defense lawyers on the floor.











Why do you keep making up things? Trump violated campaign finance laws by seeking a “thing of value” from foreign governments in support of his reelection campaign. He is using his office to benefit himself which violates the Emollients





ChickenChucker

Girl, you be watching too much CNN and MSNBSC. Your aledged facts throughout this comments section are your opinion and have no basis in actual fact. Get real, you hate Trump and no matter what he does you are against it. Where do you get all your anger?


amerigirl

Common chicken, show me an alleged fact?Then tell me why it isn't a fact because I know you can't. I do hate trump. Someone that corrupt doesn't deserve to hold that office. He is destroying this country, killing our democracy, and making a mockery of the Constitution, any true American should feel the same way.


workhardgetahead

Obama made a mockery of the Consti


workhardgetahead

Constitution, with the executive order of DACA


ChickenChucker

Amgirl, any true American would believe in due process, not secret meetings behInd closed doors .with only one party conducting interrogations. Dems on a par with the Gestapo of WWII. Those are the facts. You should avoid the .ru's for your facts. It could be considered Russian collusion. The alleged inquiry officialy started the day after the election. With the infamous anti Americans, Pelosi, Shumer, Shifty, and so on. Just the facts Ma'am. But in the great tradition of Democrats, if there aren't any, make some up. Just lie.


workhardgetahead

Article 1 Section 2 of the US Constitution



The House of Representatives shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.



Amerigirl, that is from the US Constitition. It doesnt say Speaker of the house or 1 party has the Sole power, it says the entire House has the power.



TAKE A VOTE!!


amerigirl

First, there is no rule that the full House has to vote to start an impeachment inquiry. It constitutionally acceptable for the House speaker to initiate an impeachment inquiry. She speaks for the house, thus the name.




jke

Making up her own facts, lol!


tolerantleft

Careful, or amerigirl will red flag you. 😎


amerigirl

No, I actually fact check, more than I can say for you and your conspiracy theories.


workhardgetahead

Yeah Amerigirl, you fight truth with facts and so does Joe Biden.


tolerantleft

Brought to you by today’s Democratic Party, owners of post-birth abortion, illegal immigration and anti free speech


amerigirl

















Too simple to look at the facts

workhardgetahead

Too simple to look at a You Tube video catching Biden on a Quid Pro Quo


amerigirl

Workhard, look at the entire speech not the partial video the right put out.


amerigirl

Virginia, you have been watching too much fox tv and listening to too many conspiracy theories. Did you know that all the terrorist murder’s in the US in 2018 were right wing extremists? In 2018, right wing violence went up 35%? It was republicans who sent the pipe bombs and ran down democrats in Charlottesville. The number of terrorist attacks by far-right perpetrators rose over the past decade, more than quadrupling between 2016 and 2017, thank you trump


tolerantleft

Well said! There are 63 million Americans behind you. Stand up and speak out. Trump 2020!


amerigirl

speak out about what? It's the right that is threatening Violence over gun laws, civil war over the president, mailing pipe bombs and doing mass murders as ethnic cleansing.


tolerantleft

Sure list your examples


Chris McHale

That can't be true, they are the party of safe zones.


amerigirl

What do you mean safe zones?


workhardgetahead

And cuddle puppies!


workhardgetahead

I am also a proud Trump supporter and also a retired military veteran. I took an oath to defend this country's Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic and the left wing is a domestic enemy.


DavisB

I expect that you are now seeing that Trump is someone we need to defend the country from


amerigirl

If so name what they have done? They are not anyone's enemy except the right wing conservatives. It's the right that has a rapid increase in domestic crimes, watch the news.


workhardgetahead

The left wing are nothing but a bunch of Socialist and Communist and are in the middle of trying to overthrow a duly elected President via a soft coup. Thats what they are and what they are doing. The left hates the Constitution and would get rid of it in a minute if they could. They want to flood the judicial branch with activist judges. They want open borders, unfettered immigration, a weak military and high taxes. They want to control lives and take certain freedoms away.i.e.



the 1st amendment, the 2nd amendment.



They are the enemy within.


amerigirl

Workhard. It is your duly elected president who hates and has repeatedly violated the Constitution that he took an oath to protect. "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." He does not deserve to hold the esteem office of the presidency. Even fox News' senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano in May warned that Trump had continued a "very dangerous trend" by violating the Constitution's "separation of powers" three times in the past week alone. Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution by making money off of his resort properties, ultimately prioritizing his profits over the interests of the American people, suggesting holding the G7 Summit at his Doral golf resort in Florida. His arrangement to have Pence and the military stay at his failing Doonbeg hotel in Ireland. The President has violated the Clauses due to his failure to divest his business holdings in Trump hotels and other private enterprises. He also blocked twitter users he didn’t like which violated the 1st amendment



Then you have things like his power grabs like taking money that only congress controls for his use. The Air Force has come forward saying that without that money they cannot guarantee National Security. He took money from FEMA at the beginning of hurricane season. He took money from Puerto Rico’s recovery fund. He declared an emergency at the border when it was a political emergency of his own making.







You just repeat the same old republican talking points and have NO, absolutely NO idea what the democrats want so you make things up. What freedoms do you think they are trying to take away? That is the most ridiculous statement I’ve ever heard. The enemy of the people are those who spread lies, never bother to fact check anything, and blame others for everything that has ever gone wrong.


workhardgetahead

In the words of Archie Bunker, that's a bunch of Crappola. I'll make this short since O work for a living. What did Beto ODummy say at the last debate? He said, Quote, "Damn right we are going to take your guns from you".



That's called infringement on the 2nd Amendment Look it up. Now I have to get back to work to make money since I'm a Capitalist.


workhardgetahead

Right wing is correct, that why they are called the right


amerigirl

And yet ALL deaths caused by extremist in this country last year were performed by the right wing. You must be confused or on the wrong side. If you took an oath to defend this country's Constitution then why aren't you going after trump for all his violations against it? Like the reason he is under impeachment inquiry?


workhardgetahead

I dont know about that Amerigirl, the person in Ohio was a Sanders supporter. We dont have much info on the Las Vegas shooter. The synagogue shooter in Pittsburgh wasnt a trump supporter and the person who shot Steve Scalise was a Bernie the Commie supporter. Get your facts straight, PLEASE!!


amerigirl

workhard, my facts are straight, learn reading comprehension. Like I said, last year, 2018. Scalise, didn't die. Ohio and Tree of life were this year.


workhardgetahead

He is not under impeachment inquiry. There hasnt even been a house vote. It's called a Faux Impeachment inquiry. They are just trying to find a law that he broke. The only law that he broke in the dems eyes is that he is a Republican.


DavisB

Workhard - what do you mean he is not under impeachment inquiry - have you not been watching the news? What do you think all the commotion is about? In case you have not been paying attention, it is an impeachment inquiry - they are doing their duty to investigate and decide if there is enough evidence to impeach - what else would you call it?


workhardgetahead

I stand corrected, Ohio was a Warren supporter and Pittsburgh was an Antisemite. Anti Trump lunatic
