  • A Person the Republicans in Congress Might Emulate

    Without the profanity, of course, but he is on point:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/cel...cid=spartandhp
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    His view "I don't give a **** what the public thinks?"

      That's the motto of the Left.
      Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

        The point being that Representatives and Senators should back up the rule of law and the US Constituion without being concerned with being reelected or sucking up to the president.

        Once again, it should be nation over party.

                      And yet by your thread title, you didn't apply that to Dems, only the GOP?

                        Because the GOP refuses to stand against Trump no matter what-right or wrong it just doesn't matter. And that is with the exception of the Twelve.

                          Oh? So, Trump's own party in your view should be opposed to him as virulently as the Democrats are hum? Do explain why they should do that. Oh, scratch that. We already know the answer: TDS.

                            And Senator or Representative, regardless of party, should oppose anything that is wrong, illegal, or immoral. And many of Trump's shenanigans are just that. The senators and congressman are there to do what is best for their constituents and the nation, not to do any president's bidding. Lemmings we don't need-men and women of principle we do.

                            Nixon, who was as big a crook as Trump (except a lot smarter), resigned because the Republicans turned on him. Did they have a made up psychobabble malady also?

                              What is illegal about Trump's executive order? Now, illegal was Obama's DACA order. That effectively changed immigration law for a whole class of people. That's illegal. Issuing a National Emergency order is legal. Congress gave that power to the President. It also allowed him to repurpose funds.
                              How the hell is it "immoral" to want to uphold US immigration law and stop illegal entry? What's immoral are sanctuary cities, encouraging illegal immigration, and the like. Those are immoral as well as in many cases, illegal.
                              "Wrong" is a matter of opinion here. I think a wall is a good idea. The Obama administration tried a "virtual wall" that Congress spent billions on and it was a total failure.

                              Even the NYT and WaPo call it a failure.

                              A physical wall will help, and it's much cheaper. But, the Democrats don't want effective immigration control. More immorality on their part.
