What’s going on? Not sure. Maybe check in on the Current events/Political Forum that seems like the right place to ask that question. Oh and bring your thread over there as well.

Man, I just have to say it is uncanny how often I read a thread, have a thought and as I am reading through the responses you say almost EXACTLY what I am thinking! It is scary how often it happens...and by scary Iím mean for you, I am probably the last person anyone would want to think like! LOL

Republicans can’t stand the democrats and their low level attempt of ruining the scotus pick with a fictional rapist story

Democrats can’t stand the republicans and their support for a rapist who’s going for scotus

Abortion.

It's all about the left's obsession to retain the right to kill babies.

They will destroy anything that they think will challenge that right.

The left are destroyers.

I know and respect you to be a man who deals in truth, without bias. I have ALWAYS respected that about you. I also know that as much as I try not to, I probably have at least some level of bias. But I still try to see every situation "from both sides".

That said, do you believe this man should be labeled a rapist? Based on the evidence we've been given?

Yet, with all of their hypocrisy on display, they declared that if BK was confirmed that millions of people would die. A week before said declaration they claimed that BK would overturn Roe vs Wade all by himself and take away the right to kill millions of babies.

His accuser is not even accusing him of rape sooooooooooo the only answer is no. His accuser is accusing a 17 year old boy of trying to grab a boob. But it wasn't even BK

She says he pinned her to a bed and tried to remove some clothing. Evidence to back it up? She has none. The 4 people she claims were there have no recollection of a party or anything happening at a party. One of them was her best friend at the time, she also stated, under penalty of perjury, that there was no party, she never met Kav and she has no idea what the accuser is talking about. She can't remember when it took place, she can't remember where it took place, she can't remember how she got there. She can't remember how she got home. But somehow remembers it was him, 100%.

We already have term limits. It's 2 years for Representatives and 6 years for Senators. After that, the people get to rehire them or fire them. Imposed term limits sound good on the outside but if you step back it's not democratic at all. You would be basically telling the citizenry who they could and could not choose to represent them. Now, the intellect of the citizenry is another topic.

As far as I'm concerned, the wheels fell off when they passed the 17th Amendment and allowed direct election of the Senate instead of letting the state legislatures chose who represents the state since that is what a Senator is supposed to do in the first place. The House is supposed to be the people's voice to the Legislature, the Senate is supposed to be the State's voice.....that's how the Founders designed it anyway.

Republicans and Southern Democrats were still livid over FDRís New Deal. They wanted to ensure that couldnít happen again. Truman went along with it because he agreed that too long in the office could potentially lead to bad outcomes and corruption.

You also have to realize that the people were never meant to elect the president as far as the Founders were concerned. Thatís why thI set up the Electoral College.
