Yes Schmidt an excellent summary; but yeah who reads it? I'm of the same opinion ,but that does not help much. Sorry to say half of this country has no clue at all, let alone has analyzed what is going on. The stock market is doing well,so Trump can use this again to promote himself. So I wonder what will happen in the coming months; it won't be pretty at all. My prediction.
Yes an long and difficult story ;My only comment is live your life as an individual living,breathing person who should have all the same rights as anyone else who lives in this country. Don't consider it an handicap to be able to think and analyse the world around you; lots of voting people have "something" so don't worry you are on this world to live your life as it suits you; your body is your own; it is not the property of any government,religion or even an doctor..Do enjoy life to the fullest, regardless of "gender"
Yes this stupid backwards country "voted" this imbecile into the W.H. The main reason is due that our laws are totally outdated including the election process,
The "impeachment" process proved this again; this process was absolutely not as our forefathers intended. Due to the fact that no proper "system" was described by them onhow such process should be done. Also they forgot that everything right now can be bribed such as the "votes" with lots of privileges and money..
Yes, and the people here keep on sleeping. He has "bought" the whole government by injecting all his "loyal" mafia friends into strategic positions.
Yes this country is doomed, but the people here like to stay naive.
The way he's acting, it looks like he's indeed ready for the next attack; his face turns red as a beet because he gets fast upset. I've had an heart attack,so I know what I'm talking about.
Forget him as President; wake up America; select an sound healthy person with an healthy brain.
Yes, the problem with this country is that they always first elect someone and then afterwards screen such person. They always start at "Z" and end up with "A". That is how we got Trump.
Pathetic is the word. Attach all of them to an lie detector before nominating them.
Somewhere I heard Bernie is the "new" Fidel Castro.
Schmidt, wishful thinking. Don't underestimate again the influence of the "red"States and the impact of the "electoral college".
Don't forget actually Hillary won by more than 3 million votes; the electoral college killed it.
Also a lot still can happen before any election; just look at the "border" disaster; this may become the main issue for the elections.
Yes Jared, how low can you go; why is this guy still in office? In any other civil country he would have been gone. I guess the antique stupid laws here manipulated thru centuries by greedy lawyers are the cause, Finally Warren says the "electoral college" should be scrapped, but if that ever happens I doubt that. Sorry to say, Trump may even get an second term, because of all the corruption via him and his family. This country thrives on corruption even in the election system. I bet he will go even lower than the McCain thing; no one stops him, even if he kills someone on Times Square. Amen
Schmidt, an excellent piece. I suggest to have the Washington Post publish it. My only comment is: How can you remove such con-man from office if the Trump party sticks with him? Even if Mueller comes with an damming report they will use every roadblock they can find to prevent removal. Also the 2020 election may not be the solution, because the "red" States have only become more fanatic. I don't want to sound negative but it may take an long long time to get this country back to "normal" unless you remove the "electoral college".
If this country would have proper "laws" then such societies likely would not get as far in politics as here. The same applies to the NRA and others like the KKK.
Freedom of speech is nice, but should not be "unlimited"
The Constitution and its few amendments are flawed because they did not keep up with the times. The Mormons were banned in Europe, thus came here just like an lot of odd religions; therefore "religion" never should interfere into "governing. There should be an strict separation between church and State. In elections there should be no money involved; also the money from Kochs and others should be banned. Do as they do in Europe; elections without church influence or its "money".
