Representative Louie Gohmerts “Balanced Budget Amendment” = National Suicide.

“section 2. Total outlays for any fiscal year shall not exceed 17.5 percent of economic output of the United States.

This struggle is masked by the Dem vs Rep veneer. At its core it is class warfare and these lobbyists are their soldiers.
It should be no surprise that progressives rejected the establishment this past election. These prior Democratic fundraisers are loyal only to money.
Fundraisers who raised cash for Clinton’s campaign are helping corporations lobby to overturn net neutrality, deregulate finance, and build prisons.
What the entire Republican Party intend to do in the United States; is what General Augusto Pinochet had to establish a Military Dictatorship to do in Chile, essentially PRIVATISE EVERYTHING, yet a large number of Americans are taking it laying down and large minority activly supporting it (60% do not turn out to vote in mid-terms for the Legislative Branch).

A candidate who seemingly does not exist, Rodney Stooksbury, got more votes than Jon Osoff. Osoff and the DCCC spent $30 million on the GA 6 district race. Stooksbury spent $0, didn’t campaign, and doesn’t exist. He got more votes than Osoff….

The party has been hemorrhaging seats in Congress and state legislatures for years, losing power in state after state, with no plan for getting it back. Anyone anywhere near the top of the party who refuses to acknowledge how dire things are needs to be forced out immediately.”
As far as I know, Rodney Stooksbury is an actual living human being. I have even spoken with someone who has spoken with someone who
Anyone as cowardly as this man should never be a cop in the first place. This cop should be in prison for murder. There is no excuse for this
