Because they have lived a life of ease where they had no accountability for anything. Daddy or somebody at his direction cleaned up their messes. It is quite surprising to these entitled brats that they have to explain anything to anyone.

Not giving up on my country.

Went through the Nixon/Watergate era as a late teen/early 20's. Yes some things about this are crazier (tho, I'd have to really think about it for surety)- the sometimes now lightening fast 24 hr news cycle fueled evermore by the net & social media.

But the country was very divided. The"hard-hats" epitomised by blue-collar flag-waving construction workers vs "the hippies"/or the " anti-Vietnam War protestors " which often were not the same group. I'm guessing tho that there might have been some people seeing the best of both of protesters and hippies.

It was damn crazy back then!

maybe because I went through that, I'm not ready to declare my country "gone".

Same. Or bobsaget or Mrs Garrison (I don't know if they're still posting elsewhere on the forum).

And yet, at the same time, I feel like my head would honest to God explode after, like, five minutes of reading their defense, too.

Not sure I could take much of their defenses either should they offer them!

And well said, anitram.

As WTF this past year has been, I think today will go down as one of the strangest in history books(if we survive this century and still have those).

I think about that, too. Where would you even begin explaining this mess to future generations?

All we can do is hope that this white nationalist, pussy grabbing, Russian-aided, fake news, tanTrumping, science destroying, I made half of America hypocrites presidency is only an asterisk in future museums. If not, I can't fathom how we're not fucked as a nation.

I think it's important to be skeptical of the Russia situation because there's a lot of misinformation out there and people like Louise Mensch who are insane. I've always been skeptical of collusion because there wasn't evidence for it (although there was good evidence that Russia tried to sway the election). But, we have some actual evidence that indicates collusion now.

Except back then even Republicans came around and sided against Nixon.

All we're getting is crickets from the other side. Do you see ANY reason to believe that the Republicans will put country first? I sure don't.

Actually think republicans still didn't break with party back then. Has the process gone further it sounded like there wouldn't have been enough votes to throw Nixon out. But maybe that was before the tape

I think this was Russia's play all along. They don't care about trump being in charge to get favors, they want our entire system to collapse and what better way than to have a reality tv star in charge

To be fair it took a long time to go from Watergate to resignation. Admittedly we probably know more about what is going on now then they did back then, where it came out as a tickle... But still.
