There will most certainly be jail time involved.

Just ask convicted felon Hillary Clinton.

The worst part, imo, is that I haven't heard anything that the Bidens have done that would be illegal. Not yet anyway.

Should it be illegal to trade in your name and country after you leave office? Yes. Is it? Probably not. And THAT'S the problem. And no one will see jail imo because 90% or better of DC politicians are doing that same thing.
When it comes to unethical practices like selling influence to China, the acts don’t have to be illegal to disqualify a candidate for POTUS, in my opinion.

Putting ones self in a position to be blackmailed by the greatest threat to our national security, China, reflects a fatal character flaw for anyone aspiring to be President.

....The ONLY way I see this changing is armed revolt. The commies need to be purged from all positions of authority. However, I don't see that happening.
Armed revolt against what? Our constitutional form of government? Be careful what you ask for. Armed revolt sure didn’t do Russia any good in 1917. Their revolt only proved that stupid can shoot, too.
Our founding fathers wisely put all the tools we need to preserve our republic in the Constitution. We need only elect people who know how to use them properly. If there is communist stupidity among us, it’s only because we have been too lazy to educate our children in the correct manner. We have let television and video games babysit them, and let them think that college and professional sport were much more important than learning a trade or a profession. To quote the comic strip, Pogo, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”
The founding fathers knew that armed revolt was a last resort. That’s why they gave us all the tools we need to peacefully govern ourselves. If there is to be a revolt, it should not be against our duly elected government, but against those who would subvert it.

The simple fact is that for 100 years, intelligent, successful people have been having fewer children than less intelligent, less successful people-and we've created support systems to let those less intelligent children go on to do the same.
We're literally breeding the intelligence out of our population.

Don't get me wrong, I am not calling for or hoping for an armed revolt. I was only saying that I don't know how we can change our course at this point without some major event like armed revolt.

Yes, I agree we MUST restore our liberties more closely aligned with the constitution and we must educate our kids to the value of liberty.

How do we get back on track? The left owns the flow of information in this country. You tell me how we re-gain control of the narrative?

I've read posts for years on GT how Bob Barr would lock them up. Then Barr appointed the mean looking Durham and folks doubled down on jail time.

Seriously folks, the scales of justice tilt toward the powerful DC law makers, rich donor class and the military industrial complex.

It's every man for himself, always has been.

The Left literally doesn't care that Biden took $50+ million from the CCP.

I would be upset but this stuff happens all the time and they all get away with it even if their crack-head offspring drops a smoking gun in the FBI's lap.

I know you’re a smart guy, and you have agreed Biden won’t serve the interests of Americans well. I don’t understand how you can hope President Trump loses.

How can you in clear conscience support Biden when it is obvious that radical Progressives will take over Federal government if he wins? That will move us towards Socialism, redistribution of income and assets of Americans, eventual dissolution of our economic system based on capitalism, and other destructive changes.

I don’t get it R.B.
You WANT to believe those that do not support Trump are pro Biden, which is not true. This is why it will never register with you. I only voted for Trump because I did not want HRC to become POTUS.

I will ALWAYS be an American FIRST, and have been an independent voter for >30 years. I think both parties are bat**** crazy and prefer to keep Americans divided, and it is working!!

I've been telling folks lately my theory that citizens have been crying for transparency for years. Then Trump comes along and posts everything on Twitter.

People are shocked, they don't want Trump to be transparent after all.

Most folks like being lied to and snowed under with false hoods. It makes life easier, just let a crooked politician handle it.

1.5 billion to the Iranians? It must have been for a good reason. BATF running AR-15s into Mexico without a trace? Well that proves how easy it is to buy guns in America and take them to Mexico. Spy on Trump? That's Ok, he is a Russian agent.

Etc etc

Thanks. Your honesty is appreciated because you generally come across as pro Democrat.

If you think both candidates and both parties are “batsh!t crazy”, how will you vote? Is Biden the lesser of two evils in your mind?

I voted my conscience, like everyone should. We mailed our ballots about 2 weeks ago.

That is so true, and is why people applying for jobs in "the intelligence community" USED TO be rejected if their background check revealed unadmitted-to things that could be used by enemy agents to compromise them and extort (by blackmailing them) classified info out of them. It used to make some of us angry that the people above us on the I.C. food chain (and even in the White House) could get access to national security info without meeting that test, but those of us at the bottom were required to.

There was nothing in al capone's vault, and nobody listens to the boy who called wolf. Have a good day!
Uh, except that in the cases you mentioned, the vault was actually empty, and there was (initially) no wolf.

In the case of the Clinton/Biden Crime Family, the vault is overflowing, and the wolf has been ravaging the flock of sheep for decades. So your analogy is a bit inaccurate.

Had Hillary won in '16 none of this would have seen the light of day.
And that is a terrifying thought. Also imagine what crimes Bill and Barack managed to conceal because they won 2 terms. We may never know the real extent. Heck, JFK's "dark side" didn't come to light until 40 years after he was dead, in some cases.

I think we are at the point where you have to commit more crimes than the Clintons to be charged and nobody is really up to that.
It's funny: Libs used to say "There could be video evidence of Trump running over a pedestrian, and you Trumpers would still vote for him!" as a hypothetical, and now, ironically, there is actual evidence of Bidens committing crimes that might be that serious...and do you think those Liberals will switch their pro-Biden votes?

Mayor Pete very uncomfortably tried in a Fox interview to deflect news about the latest Bidengate revelations. Neither he nor anyone else on the Biden team will say ‘Joe Biden has never received money or promises of future payments related to Hunter’s business dealings’.

Biden could stop this scandal in its tracks with a flat denial of claims about about his involvement in influence peddling. Why won’t he deny it? His character and his candidacy are on the line.

He could take a polygraph and possibly clear his name if he passed it, but at this point do his supporters even think he is innocent? Seems like they have resigned themselves to "Okay, he's guilty of all that and more, but he's all we've got and it's too late to turn back now, so full speed ahead."
