One-Party Government

More Americans want it. Because the Left has succeeded in dumbing down the populace about the founding principles of the Republic. I agree with this:

…since the GOP will almost certainly hold the House — and looks like it’s got a good chance with the Senate — if you want one-party government you need to elect Trump. On the other hand, Trump’s so different from the Republicans in Congress that it would still be divided government, really. Which I personally find more of a comfort than a disappointment.

Yes.

Political Correctness

Without it, we might not have a terror problem at all.

From (Democrat, AFAIK) Jonathan Turley:

Of all of the individuals who would warrant immunity, most would view Mills as the very last on any list. If one assumes that there may have been criminal conduct, it is equivalent to immunizing H.R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman in the investigation of Watergate.

Why, it’s almost as though there was no intent to seriously investigate.

This is gangster government, and it will only get worse if she gets into the White House. At least Trump will be more likely to be reined in by Congress (perhaps even impeached and removed).

Good question, from a smart prosecutor: “What more would she have had to do to get you to prosecute her?”
