  1. Widespread doxxing of partisans on social media.
  2. Boycotts of products and companies that seem partisan.
  3. Hacking and cyberwarfare against partisan media organisations.
  4. Hacking and cyberwarfare against party organizations.
  5. Paralyzing government at all levels with legislative obstruction.
  6. Impeachment and threats of impeachment routinely employed against opponents.
  7. Widespread tax revolts when opposing party in power.
  8. Interdiction of goods transiting between cities and countryside.
Cliff, you grossly over-estimate the sophistication of Americans. This would all make sense in a civilized nation, but this is 'Merica, where God and Guns are the great drivers in everything. I can't see the militias sitting on the sidelines and not firing a shot at those they see as enemies of their way of life, and their very limited view of the constitution many of them have sworn to defend. I like your perspective on this, but many of these concepts are just too far over the head of the average American.

Peter knows not to reply to posts with one word responses. This was his own undoing.

Yep. We can't even agree on whether or not to allow pickup trucks in a single family residential neighborhood without almost killing each other.

My letter carrier jobs allows me to observe so many people in so many different neighborhoods.

I have never seen people as nasty and plain inhumane to each other as I have recently.

It's getting to be very traumatic actually.

Granted, I am in South Florida but still.

We're supposed to be the "progressive " part of the state. Wow.

I just know you two had a bit of a bromance going on, you noticed minutes after he was gone, and I know you both really appreciated my banter, so,,,, just wanted to let you know.

Lol, 6 months of him saying the Russian meddling was "FAKE NEWS" and a made-up excuse by the Dems for losing the election. Now he's flat out admitting that it happened? What a f'n idiot. Just when you think he can't be more of a jackass, he just keeps surprising us each and every day.

Why wouldn't he? It works. His core support eats that #### up and he's going to face no consequences for it.

He can say whatever he wants, counter his PR staff however he wants, make himself look guilty as hell and in the end it means nothing.

I could probably spoiler tag this as it's horrifying and requires acid to wash your eyes out, but then again haven't you always wanted to see the President's panty line and fat ass?

I hope I can be president some day. The amount of leisure time in that job is incredible. Basically, a semi-retirement. Nice.

All Trump lies to date.

Not a typo, just letting people know they're getting rid of those pesky child labour laws.
