FDR:
Signed an executive order that allowed him to unilaterally intern around 120,000 American citizens of Japanese descent. Not only was the policy deliberately racist, it amounted to a full-bore attack on about half the Constitution that he had sworn to uphold.

Woodrow Wilson:
Regularly said things like, "a Negro's place is in the corn field". Re-segregated the civil service, personally firing more than a dozen supervisors for the sin of being black. Pushed for, and then oversaw the enactment of, the Sedition Act. Threw dissenters and political adversaries into prison, instructed the postmaster to refuse delivery of literature he deemed unpatriotic, and a created an unconstitutional civilian police force that targeted Americans for political dissent.

John Adams and Abraham Lincoln:
Suspended habeas corpus, the latter without any congressional approval. Surely, denying citizens their fundamental rights of due process is a more serious offense than Trump's rhetoric and actions.

Andrew Jackson:
Ignored courts and laws and used his power to ethnically cleanse lands that he also sometimes happened to have a financial interest in. ignored courts and laws and used his power to ethnically cleanse lands that he also sometimes happened to have a financial interest in.

Teddy Roosevelt:
Threatened American citizens with military intervention.

John Kennedy:
Shared a mistress with a leading Chicago mobster Sam Giancana, whom he met in the White House, setting himself up for blackmail or worse.

Lyndon Johnson:
Nixon may have lost his job after obstructing an investigation into freelance GOP spying on his political opponents, but Lyndon Johnson skipped any pretense, and just asked the FBI and CIA to spy for him. CIA officials, illegally operating inside the United States, spied on the Goldwater campaign in 1964 and brought Johnson information he used to undermine his opponents at every turn. Johnson also lied about the Gulf of Tonkin, escalating the Vietnam War, and then kept lying about the war until he left office.



Nope - not political at all. I guess it's worse to do what Trump did than to murder millions of native Americans, lock up citizens because they are Japanese, or throw folks in jail because of a political belief (communism).

Who knew?


Nixon should of been impeached for messing with the Vietnam peace talks instead of Watergate.

Perhaps Mr. Trump will only be censured for his actions but there is likely some fear spoken by Democratic officials, unspoken with Republican officials that he will likely continue his behavior and what's to stop him? The sheer arrogance of Giuliani continuing his actions in Ukraine while the impeachment debate rages is a continuing affront.

I really don't understand why some do not want to admit they are backing Dems.

Maybe they are not but just anti-Trump?

How does that affect you or this conversation in any way? Not everything in this world is black or white.

I've voted for every Republican President since I could vote except for Trump. I've voted 90% Republican for most everything else as well. Once the party gets back to its senses and finds some morals/new ideas again I'll probably return to voting for them.

I think they have come to realize that nothing makes sense at this point, so all they do is to hate the man because he is rich and they are not.

You and I have talked about this before, but I'll try it again (insane I know) Everything they are selling? Of course not, but in my eyes they are the only ones with some new ideas on tough problems and are the more fiscally responsible of the two parties (which isn't saying much, but they at least propose paying for their ideas instead of funny money/pie in the sky accounting).

Instead you have top Republicans continuing to enrich the top 1% while increasing the wage gap and there followers ideas for immigration are building walls (which the new ones have already shown not to work recently) or shooting people at the border. Remember that back and forth?

The 50s US was a myth anyway and it is never coming back no matter how bad Trump and other baby boomers want it to.

But a hilarious one for running against Trump. He likes to call him Little Mike but you know it has to irritate him endlessly that Bloomberg is far wealthier than he is (and actually self-made).

Idk. But I do know Trump is POTUS. If he doesn't make the cut and Trump is reelected, well that's a spinning back fist to the ear that no amount of zeros will heal.
