The amazing times we live in

Currently, major Democratic and Republican Party candidates for president are under federal investigation for serious crimes yet still appear to have major support from their respective Parties.
Think about that. Let it sink in. There are people that could very well be voting for a candidate, in the Tuesday primary, they hope to be president of the United States that they know is under investigation for very serious crimes.
What the hell is wrong with our country when this is "ok"??

Please don't insult my intelligence or your own by making excuses or spinning tales of "vast right-wing conspiracies" or laughable attacks on news sources. That is bullshit. What is happening is real. There are real federal judges. Real FBI agents. Real IGs. Real reports from real intelligence agencies. Real Justice department attorneys.

3. And we've become a country where being corrupt is okay as long as the

corrupt person happens to be on our side. It's not okay for the other guy to do it but it's okay if my guy does it. We truly have become a cult of personality culture.

5. Yeah, it's sickening.

They respect corruption. They think you're a fool if you're not dishonest, you know the 'it's part of the game' mentality. This shit began in the 80's with Reagan, but it's totally acceptable now.

6. Apparently it was totally acceptable back in Reagan's day, too,

because even though his administration ranked highest in the number of administration officials who ended up being investigated, indicted, and even convicted (138 in all), it apparently didn't hurt the Republican brand.

7. Yeah, now it's both parties, and no one ever gets convicted.

The formation of the DLC played a crucial role in the corruption of the Democratic party.

4. Maybe instead of governing from the White House, they can from the Big House.

 

This country is such a joke, why should this even slow us down?

8. LOL, Hillary's "very serious crime" is a nothing burger of interest mainly to the VRWC.
