Richard, I literally got about 1 text per hour for MONTHS from the trump campaign during and after the election. How is turning his Twitter account off silencing him?

Twitter is a private platform, not a public entity. trump was treated like every other customer.

GOP lawmakers told Trump takes some responsibility for Capitol riot

Posted By Russ Carroll

Well, at least we know where the line is for the GOP faithful to call out trump: Armed insurrection against the US Government.

Now Liz Cheney is on board for impeachment.

Posted By Russ Carroll

Forget Nikki Haley, Jim B...LIZ CHENEY 2024!!

If she runs, she'll probably get the most financial support I've ever given to a candidate.

Trump told Pence he could be a 'patriot' or 'p----'

That ship sailed in November. If this ain’t a disorderly transition, it’ll do until the real one happens.

Corporate donors reject GOP members who participated in the big lie that the election was stolen. He and his family will be under investigation after he leaves office. For example, the shell company Jared set up to funnel half of their campaign money to the Trump family members to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. You have to wonder why Trump ever wanted the job. He's awful at it, and he's managed to destroy his brand and image utterly.

I even hear he's getting kicked of AMART

Any once or future conservative ought to feel free to answer.  I would vote for any of those candidates over Trump.  It would not be close in my case.
In order

1 Cheney
2 Romney

if they were the nominee, you can add

3 Haley
4 Rubio

If Satan were the Democratic nominee

5 Pence

Cruz and Satan are a draw, so I’d just not vote

They are one and the same, so it's irrelevant.

All of my previous answers presume the candidate rejects trump and trumpism, so there's that, too.

Even after everything that we have seen, the talk here is as if we just ended the college football season and are taking about next years. I just can't get my head around intelligent people not understanding how dire the situation is. This is how numb we have become after 4 years of trumpism. WE CAME PERILOUSLY CLOSE to many members of Congress being killed, and it is literally a miracle that it didn't happen. This has the potentially of ended our country as we have known it for 240 years.

It is STILL in great danger. Think about the fact that Lindsey Graham and others in the GOP say the Senate should not perform its constitutional duty and hold a trial of djt because it will lead to violence. That is EXACTLY how Italy became a fascist country. It is how the Nazi's obtained actual power. The WORST thing that could happen is this past and continued violence would lead to radical changes in the execution of our Constitutional democracy.

Like it or not, it is irrefutable that neo-nazi's and white supremacists have cuckold this party thorough donald trump. The trump supporters at the Capitol may not be part of that movement, but they were their battering ram to invade the Capitol. TODAY, it has the potential to take over the entire movement and put us into a war against domestic terrorists that make radical Islam seem quaint.

WE ARE BY NO MEANS OUT OF THE WOODS AND WE'RE ENTERING THE MOST DANGEROUS TIME IN OUR HISTORY.
