This is a disaster. Every person who can vote must show up to boot these people out of office. Every last one of them must go, it's like cutting out a cancer.
You know, I was just thinking today, that voting is not enough. We need to drastically change this country in order to prevent anything akin to the GOP to have such power. Sure, we may be able to vote enough Republicans out of office and replace them with Democrats, but that won't stop the authoritarian, bigoted, liberal-hating Americans from doing all they can to do the same thing - vote the Democrats out and replace them with their own kind. It will be back and forth, back and forth. No, you need to get to the root of this problem and then cut out the cancer. It's like going to the Mothership and destroying the base there.

And the thing is, Democrats are leaning more towards socialism apparently, while Republicans are leaning towards fascism. Can't get anymore different and divided.

The one thing that gives me hope is that young people, 35 and younger, are mostly left-leaning (I think they are?). Sure, you would always have the right-leaning in this demographic. But if young people are against the Christian Right, racism, patriarchy, and everything else the GOP represents, then maybe there is hope for this country. Too bad it will take eons to fix itself out, and by then, there would be a huge mess left to clean up.

We need to split the country up. There’s no way around it.

Can’t assume this moronic thinking and policy of the GOP and their base can ever coexist with anyone but their own.

They care more about inflicting damage, trolling the other side than their own side prospering. Because they cannot prosper as long as liberals exist.

So time to let that thinking move on and die off on its own. The “elitist” have been supporting this group for far too long. Cut them loose

And here is the tweet about Obama I predicted earlier lol.

So President Obama knew about Russia before the Election. Why didn’t he do something about it? Why didn’t he tell our campaign? Because it is all a big hoax, that’s why, and he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win!!!

Now he's looking into revoking the security clearances of Brennan, Comey, Hayden, Clapper, and Susan Rice.

Punishing political opponents totally isn’t something that despots, tyrants, and dictators do.

That said, I am wondering why those people still have a security clearance. I have to admit I'm not up to date with the current roles of those persons, but do they need the clearance for that?
From a security point of view I can understand that someone's clearance is revoked once that person does not need it anymore for their job. But yeah, doing that now and for these reasons, that's beyond petty.

I had "secret" security clearance when I worked for the DOD. It was good for 10 years, but I honestly don't know whether it was automatically revoked when I left federal employment.

I think this is more symbolic assholery than anything else.

So I think we can point to one possible reason for Trump's Twitter outburst today:

I dunno about that.
Especially thinking of all the African-Americans, other people of color, and minority religions that's be stuck in those predominantly Red States, many may not the means to get out.
