You know the US has become insane today when:

The answer to endless wars is more wars.

The answer to the police state is more tyranny.

The answer to a dead economy is starting a trade war.

The answer to regulations is more laws.

The answer to endless debt is more debt.

None of us supported Trump, but you do realize Trump has only been in office a short time, and the gop'E has yet to send him any meaningful Legislation.
So your issue is really with leftist rhetoric painting Trump as this all powerful entity with the ability to personally rewrite laws?

We didn't support him, but we'll do our damnedest to see he does the Right thing.

See my open letter to Trump.

Oh, and to the OP, yeah, I hate the fact we even have a Homeland Security and NSA spying on us, but keep voting out the Marxist GOP scum like McStain and we might just get rid of the behemoth.

Your a day late and a dollar short.

Edmund Burke (1729-1797) said "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.". George Santayana (1863-1952) said "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.". The full quote from The Life of Reason (1905-1906) by George Santayana is as follows:

Who said Those who do not learn from the past are doomed ...

Oh, by the way, the FISA Section 702 Snooping Act?
It is set to expire on Dec. 31 and Congress has yet to send Trump a working Bill.

Congress still does bills? I thought they passed a bill stating they no longer have to write or pass bills because it's really exhausting and cuts into their fundraising and TV time.
