We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Number 5: Obama issues secret preemptive pardon now and issues secret "Executive Action" instructing FBI/Justice to do nothing further. Probably illegal, but so is the majority of what Obama is doing these days. And we may never know about it if Hillary wins presidency.
"So we are left with the equation of what happens if Hillary isn't indicted?
The most obvious part is that the rule of law will have, for all intents and purposes, ended in the United States. Equal justice flew out the window. How does the public react to that? A good portion of it will roll over, but a certain percentage will not. Their reactions will be contingent on a number of things -- whether Clinton is elected anyway (unlikely at this point, but possible), the steadfastness of opposition politicians and media, etc.
But in the final analysis, a democracy cannot exist without the consent of the governed. For that percentage in opposition, consent will have broken down pretty much completely. Then what? "
What about the Lois Lerners, Menendez, the Charlie Rangels, the Black Panthers in Philly, people too numerous to count on the Left that have committed crimes but are walking around free, prosecution apparently unthinkable.
How long will the system work when one side has a get out of jail free card while the other side gets indicted (figuratively) for jay walking. Look at all the people in Wisconsin that supported Walker that were SWATTED and had their homes raided, Palin be hounded from office by petty lawsuits and ruinous legal fees, Tom Delay, I believe, who was driven from office on a bogus charge. It happens again and again to people on the Right. Lefties, not so much.
I am rather surprised we have put up with it for so long. Maybe we are okay with it?
1. HRC used her non-secure personal email to send/receive classified government information, some of which contained information that places lives of brave US agents in life threatening danger.
2. It is a safe assumption that foreign enemies hacked into the Clinton's server and gained access to information stored there.
3. It is also a VERY reasonable assumption - given the Clinton's history of lies, duplicity and nefarious acts - that HRC knowingly used this private server in blatant disregard of federal policy/rules for the express purpose of hiding things she was doing and saying from public record.
Thus, it is very apparent that HRC deliberately endangered the lives of American agents for the purpose of furthering her political career and fattening her wallet. I cannot accept conclusion of anyone who claims that if it comes down to Trump vs HRC, they will either vote for HRC or stay home (remember, not voting for any Republican candidate is the same as voting FOR the Democrat candidate).
Even more serious are the allegations that the Clintons were selling their influence to foreign counties through various mechanisms such as Bill selling speeches, laundering money through Canada to go to the Clinton Foundation (and then disbursed to the Clintons and their cronies as salaries, etc). Stories say the FBI is now investigating that as well.
Just remember, Obama has set up a similar foundation. No one is looking into that yet.
