You mean during the last republican administration where tons of people said a whole bunch of things and nothing bad happened to them for it?
You don't have a very good memory. Does Valerie Plame ring a bell?
Much like the Current administration who did nothing.. Oh wait.. who sent the IRS after people who disagreed with him and his party.
Which were never directly associated with the administration, and widely denounced by liberals at the time. Meanwhile, the Plame leak was tied directly to the White House.
And the Morality police? Are these any more numerous or rabid than the social justice warriors?
Yes, and they have more power. SJW can dox you or shame you on twitter. The Morality police actually have real police behind them that will throw you in jail. 'Member John Ashcroft?
Hillary has respect for the constitution? The DNC does? We'll crank the censorship time machine dial back, and look at Good old Al and Tipper Gore.
So you had to back 30 years to something she didn't actually do for an example? That's pretty weak argument.
Like or hate the 2nd amendment, there are rules and laws, and that is NOT how it is supposed to work.
You don't actually support the 2nd amendment, so stop pretending like you do. Almost no one in this country supports the 2nd amendment as written. Last polling information I saw, 90%+ of Americans are for some gun control laws. The only disagreement is over the degree of control.
Trump, on the other hand, during this election cycle has directly attacked the first, fourth, and eight amendments.
The problems of an increasingly militarized police state administered by an executive branch that has been radically expanding it's powers over the last 30 years is party independent. Who wins just shifts the demographics of who is in peril a bit.
This I can agree with, except we've never nominated such a thin-skinned, authoritarian like Trump before, which makes his control of that military all the more concerning.
