I'm not in favor of Putin's minions interfering with our democracy, imperfect as it is. Are you?
What I find weird is that people who seem to absolutely loathe the Democratic Party have invested so much time and emotional energy in picking its presidential nominee. Why isn't that the story?
Maybe she can bring it up in a debate.
so yeah, the Russians. fuck the Russians.
Because I don't care if they show Russian involvement - what they WILL show is that I have more fucking money than that overgrown tomato. Probably all of us do. And that's why he doesn't want us to see: actually, he has no money.
Remember, transparency and rooting out secretive quid pro quo style politics is bad if it makes the road to Clinton's inevitable coronation a bit bumpier. It is good other times, but this time it is really bad. It's her turn dammit!
Wellll... in its purest form, there is nothing wrong with wanting more transparency and clarity but the road to hell and all that springs forth from earnest intentions.
The danger in the Russians getting their sticky jam hands up in our shit is that they're attached to a dangerous man (Putin) who smart, methodical, and playing the long game. And he wants Cheeto Jaysus because Cheeto Jaysus is a grown toddler who is controlled and coddled by attention and praise and will let him do whatever the fuck he wants because Putin stroked his bloated whale carcass ego a little. The only difference between an actual toddler and Cheeto Jaysus is ostensibly one of these two entities only shits his pants literally.
Russia under Putin has been ratcheting up its anti-American rhetoric and behaving aggressively towards the US military. That's in addition to ignoring the rest of the world about Syria and making nothing about that remotely better. And Putin definitely has long term plans to roll back up on the Balkans and Ukraine and do whatever the fuck he wants to them. By the time Trump even really clues into what he let through the door, we're going to be in a fuckton of trouble.
I would be legitimately concerned where the Russians are involved under Putin when it comes to their long term intentions towards the rest of the world, which includes us. I'm not suggesting that we reverse course on impartiality and neutrality when it comes to our electoral process. But I am suggesting that we also have to be super concerned with who is poking flaming sticks at a system we all commonly understand to be broken to start with and what their intention is by doing that at this very moment.
So... Romney was right???
