So this is how liberty dies...with thunderous applause



Such a fitting analogy to any trump KKKlan rally or the #TraitorGOP applauding every lie heís spewing tonight

Tea Party Republican, Joe Walsh, on #Cult45


I spoke in front of 3,000 Iowa Republicans last night. It was like a MAGA rally. I told them we needed a President who doesnít lie all the time. The crowd booed me. I told them we needed a President who wasnít indecent & cruel. The crowd booed me. 1/

I told them we needed a President who doesnít care only about himself. The crowd booed me. I told them the Republican Party needed to do some real soul searching. The crowd booed me. 2/

I told them that, because of Trump, young people, women, and people of color want nothing to do with the Republican Party. The crowd booed me. I told them Iím a pro life, pro gun, secure the border conservative, but we need a President who is decent and represents everyone. 3/

The crowd booed me. I got booed, yelled at, jeered, and given the middle finger for the 3-4 minutes I spoke to these 3,000 people. Afterwards, I realized again that 99.9% of these folks donít support me. They donít care that Trump lies, they donít care that heís cruel, 4/

they donít care that he cheats to get re-elected, they donít care that he attacks the free press, they donít care that he increases the debt, they donít care that his tariffs have killed Iowa farmers, they donít care that Trump abuses the Constitution and acts like a dictator. 5/

Afterwards, I realized again that my Republican Party isnít a Party, itís a cult. I realized again that nobody can beat Trump in a Republican Primary. And most importantly and most sadly, I realized again that I donít belong in this party. I have no home in this party. 6/

And I realized again that something new needs to begin. Whether itís a political party, or a movement, I donít know. But there needs to be a home for conservatives who are decent, principled, and respectful. Conservatives who embrace all Godís children, acknowledge that 7/

climate change is real, get serious about our debt, abide by our Constitution, and tell the truth. I hope to be a part of this new party. This new movement. But job #1 in 2020 is to stop Trump. And all of us from across the political spectrum need to come together 8/

to stop Trump. Letís make sure Trump is defeated in 2020, then we get back to respectfully debating issues. Instead of talking about Trump everyday. Letís put aside our differences on certain issues now and understand that Trump is the single greatest threat to this Republic. 9/

No wonder his approval is at a high!

Seth Abramson with a very astute observation on the candidates' responses from last night

One observation I want to make is that the two women behaved in a presidential fashion after the chaos in Iowa. Both gave gracious speeches and flew to New Hampshire. Meanwhile, Biden went to his lawyers, Pete declared "victory," and Bernie released confusing partial caucus data.

PS/ I like Joe, I like Pete, and I like Bernie. I also think it's way past time for a woman to be in the White House. And I think how the candidates responded to the chaos yesterday is telling. It'd be difficult for anyone to argue that Warren and Klobuchar didn't handle it best.

Caucus comment... heh

This caucus system really boggles Des Moines.

Iím sorry. Iíll show myself out.

Twitler was correct. Y'all didn't know Kansas had annexed west Missouri???

After twitler claims he's exonerated, guess what he and #TraitorGOP will do about the Bidens?

Not. A. Goddamned. Thing.

They wonít open one single investigation. No special counsel. No committee hearings.

Nothing

Oh, theyíll still spread lies and innuendo but they wonít actually do anything and their knuckle-dragging #MAGAt supporters wonít care.

US Constitution ... 1787 - 2020

ďThis house is a sanctuary; a citadel of law, of order, and of liberty; it is here-it is here in this exalted refuge-here, if anywhere, will be resistance made to the storms of political frenzy and the silent arts of corruption. And if the Constitution be destined ever to perish by the sacrilegious hands of the demagogue or the usurper, which God avert, its expiring agonies will be witnessed on this floor

- Aaron Burr, 1805 farewell address to the US Senate
