    Hey Jake, this one is for you.

    I recently received an email notice from  the Ron Paul forums that I joined a couple years ago - but forgot about.

    Geez louise, talk about vitriolic choir rooms ... Jake you would have a field day on this one. You recently compared this HP forum to Breitbart and Alex Jones forums - and I criticized you for that comparison. Well, I haven't visited those forums, (if they have forums), but I got your point.

    After a return vista to the Ron Paul forums, I am even more convinced of how wrong you were.

    Folks; Left, Right, Liberal, Conservative, Independent, and I-don't-knows - pat yourself on the back. No matter how you disagree with your fellow forum members, you make this HP forum one of the most sensible I have found on the net.

    Want proof - visit Ron Paul's U.S. Politics Forum

      Hey GA: In case readers haven't noticed, Alex Jones and RT (Russian TV) two of Comrade Bozo Trump's greatest advocates are GONE for very good reason, removed from Wash DC airwaves and I've noticed they've been removed from my local airwaves as well and perhaps yours and everyone elses:

      What did they have in common? Lies Lies Lies and Ridiculous Crazy Right Wing Republican Conspiracy, Conspiracy and MORE Conspiracy just like the dangerous nonsense spewed almost daily by Bozo Trump, Imbecile Deven Nunez and hot airbag Sean Hammity which is an abuse of freedom of speech: I'm just surprised it took this long to start pulling the plug and purging all the fake right wing propaganda polluting us from everywhere: Is fox next?

      Here's just a couple reasons why I'm concerned about HPs future: Unlike lazy yellow belly perched in our oval office who according to press reports, was apparently afraid to grab a rifle and serve in our military when required to do so, in stark contrast, there is absolutely zero doubt in anyone's mind that late Senator John McCain was one of our greatest American heroes in history and there's no legitimate debate about that in the real world, yet there is actually a discussion on HP which asks the FAKE question whether McCain is traitor or hero: Every true rational American understands the fact that it's nothing more than a FAKE question: Believe it or not, there is also another discussion which asks why it's okay to be a racist: And there are more examples of this insanity which who knows, may cost HP standing in the future::

      This is nothing more than breitbart and Alex Jones style crazy right wing republican propaganda which is just destructive junk and the powers that be seem to be finally realizing this:

        I still say you should be a comedian!  GA, when I got the email noticed I wondered who is HP?  Now I get it!  Thank you for the compliment ... I think.

          Not sure if you're talking to me or GA diane, but unlike Bozo Trump, I'm humorous when appropriate and there's absolutely nothing humorous about the disturbing press reports and shocking books recently released depicting a massively and irreparably dysfunctional white house which appears to have been in an emergency state from day one: UNREAL:

          And then there was this utter abominable disgrace yesterday televised from our oval office, the peoples house believe it or not on 9/11: Unthinkable, somewhat incoherent, poorly delivered grotesque remarks from a person who as reported in the Washington Post, is beyond dishonest and obviously disturbed:

          I think even many Trump cultees are finally waking up to reality in America, they've finally had enough of this unmitigated insanity day after grueling day with Trumps' and republican's shameful attacks on our healthcare and economy: We've had all we can take of this atrocious blasphemy and it's reflected in Trump's sinking polls and will be relected as it has been on election day with a giant blue wave of progressive salvation just on the horizon, to wash the darkness away:

          Just unimaginably pathetic:

            FYI - I read one of your posts to my husband a few weeks ago and he loved it so much he now asks me every morning to "read a Jake post" to him. He cannot stand Trump and the cowardly Republican sycophants, so much so that he switched parties and is no longer a Republican.

            You add humorous sarcasm ... how 'bout that!  It amazes me that GOP legislators are admitting in private that they are concerned; HOWEVER, they will get voted out if they speak up.  Something is reeeeally wrong with that.  When I am convicted that I am right (after examination of my position), I'm speaking out!  If they don't like it, vote me out!  It is so amazing to hear confessions about how they want to stay in what they consider "thankless low paying servant" positions.  If they really support Trump, then speak up!  History will write the final chapter.

              LOL  Precious few politicians are more concerned about honesty or truth than they are about that "thankless low paying servant" position that gives them money and power.

              Regardless of what has (or has not) happened since the election, it is a primary reason Trump is in office.

                Politics is a game.  People enter politics to gain fame & many view it as a career move.  Politics is a VERY LUCRATIVE business.  Remember as the saying goes that politics is celebrity for less attractive people. People enter politics because it is a lucrative business, they could care less about the constituents.

                  +1  Agree whole heartedly.  It is a game, a business and a lucrative one at that once one gets past the state level.  And sometimes at the state level as well.

                    DEFINITELY.   Politics is nothing but a career path to fame.   Use politics correctly & one can be a MULTIMILLIONAIRE who has IT MADE.  My late father indicated that Nixon stated that he entered politics for the sole purpose of becoming a millionaire.   While I believe that one should make as much money as his/her talents, intelligence, & education allows, do a job/have a career because h/she feels some passion/care regarding that career.  Don't be MERCENARY regarding success.
