I'll readily admit...it's tough fighting propaganda from russia that the right wing here in the U.S.A. accepts, just to win an election

Anybody but Trump!
Again...Where was Obama on this issue?
This has been discussed many times...

A partisan tightrope

Former Vice President Joe Biden also has complained that the White House wanted Republicans to join in a bipartisan statement announcing and condemning the interference campaign. In Biden's telling, however, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., wouldn't go along.


But that didn't stop then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., from alluding publicly to the Russian campaign in a letter to then-FBI Director James Comey. And Comey reportedly wanted to announce the active measures in an op-ed column, as Newsweek reported in March 2017. Two sources with knowledge about the matter told Newsweek that Obama administration officials blocked the effort.


There's no way to know what difference it might have made for U.S. officials to have confirmed and condemned the Russian interference in real time.

Can The U.S. Combat Election Interference If Some Don't Believe It's Happening?


Obama administration officials have said they worried about appearing to put their thumb on the scales for Clinton. Combined with Obama's belief that Clinton would win, their political calculus appears to have boiled down to: Let's ride this out.

Obama himself said in December 2016 that he wasn't convinced that he should have done anything different.

But true Americans know that we will prevail from the assault on our Democracy.

Political power is power. When a party chooses to let a foreign government aid them in having that power, it destroys what America is all about.

When the President, the Senate, and the DOJ is working against what is supposed to be America...

...we all die, as a Republic.
We won't preserve our democracy without a fight.....and the apparent enemy of democracy is Trump and his Republicans. They willingly spread Russian propaganda, conspiracies....as it helps them maintain power. Never mind that it's destructive to our democracy.
I do wish that so many Americans hadn't flunked high school civics OR are simply gullible folk and have no sense of how to keep our democracy and why that's important.

Here's a few...


Fraudulent Social Media Accounts

According to the indictment, the defendants and their co-conspirators created hundreds of social media accounts impersonating real and fictitious Americans — and they paid for ads promoting their posts.

The accounts focused on issues like immigration, the Black Lives Matter movement and religion. Some were used to encourage minority groups not to vote or to promote accusations that the Democratic Party engaged in voter fraud.

It's all in the Mueller report, too, but Trump, probably under orders from Putin, is hellbent on disappearing that investigation and its conclusion......to pretend that Russia didn't interfere in 2016....when they did.....and that there's no question about Trump's 2016 election win.

There is NO real proof there, just a story from a highly partisan "news" source that is itself propaganda. They provide zero examples of said "Russian" propaganda, just as the Democrats do on this forum, because it's all fictitious.
So, the entire premise is false.
We knew that.

Speaking of flunking civics! Here's the very best example of flunking civics:

THE US IS NOT A DEMOCRACY. It is a REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC.
ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE IS LYING. Conservatives understand this.

Already admitting defeat? I thought everyone hated Trump? I think you have loser candidates and you are making excuses. The polling machines are not on the internet, if the Russians did change the 2016 outcome, we must ask Obama why he let the Russians do it.

BTW...What happened to "Open Borders?" Wait that one is closed?
Yes, they are on the Internet.
