    If Trump wins, we will get the president we deserve.

    I hope and pray that the universe has mercy on us.

    I still dont feel it.... I'm usually a pessimist but on this one, I just don't think so (although I hope it's not just my terror of it happening obscuring my view :lol: )

    New news. FBI is now going to investigate new emails.

    It is a witch hunt that is never going to end.

    so they investigate hilary, fine ok, although the timing leaves a lot to be desired.

    but they wont investigate trump for sexual abuse despite any number of women saying they were abused AND video of him admitting that he does it!

    wow!

    I was saying the same thing easier, it makes me so cross that he just seems to be untouchable.
    Guess money talks in this case.

    Well a couple of leaks over here from legal firms have suggested that the trump campaign feels it's going to lose by a smaller margin than expected but still lose because of four key swing states and they believe the FBI letter has come too late in the day to avoid that loss. Apparently if the rumours are to be believed, they're looking for opinion on whether to spend the bulk of the money on disputing individual state results or whether to go all out for an early impeachment of Hillary and they're talking of nov/dec timescales

    Impeachment simply means they are brought up on charges. To be impeached means they actually have to be in the office to begin with. If they are then found guilty the VP becomes president.

    Bill Clinton was brought to impeachment, but cleared.
    I honestly don't know what in our country's laws allows anyone who has been charged with rape, (or any other very serious crime) run for office.
    A frequent comment, at least one put forth by the media all too often is, that this is a choice between the lesser of two evils. I do not believe that for one second. This is a choice between our democracy and the destruction of our constitution. To vote against democracy is to vote for the end of our constitutional rights and protections.
    Fear is a nasty and powerful tool. That tool is being used with impunity and through the perpetuation of proven lies and corruption on the part of the Trump campaign.
    No one really knows where it will end. We'll all just have to wait it out and see.
