    Yes, you're saying that we SOMETIMES lives up to our ideals, just not "24/7 365 days a year." Correct?

    It is very comforting that the elections were held in as close to perfect a manner as possible. Speaks volumes for the peple and the system itself. Kudos to everyone that worked so hard to make it so. Trump is merely verifying that the US election system is a very good one. Barr got some gonads and spoke the truth for once......... Word is that he is leaving soon. (don't have details yet) That might be samrt........as he should get out of that crazy Trump vortex.

    Barr has always been all talk and no action.

    Did he also call for an end to world hunger? Humans on Saturn by 2025?

    if he does, start a thread.
    this thread is about what Barr said.
    I know you don't like that, but too bad.

    Yeah, too bad. Because he already said it. Can't mock it or point it out for what it is, now. 'Cause too bad. When is he resigning? Friday?

    But this chance to turn the USA from a free republic into the autocratic dictatorship he had always wanted it to be was just too good to pass up

    The OP is about what Barr said.
    Barr said the remedy was full audit.
    Hope you kept the envelopes

    Poll watchers being told to leave and then continuing to count votes is "as close to perfect a manner as possible?" Surely you can't be serious! There's no reason to believe that this election was NOT the most fraudulent in US history! And there's plenty of evidence to suggest that it WAS!

    I won't lie, I'm kind of impressed that he showed some integrity in this.

    There is no evidence. Poll watchers were free to come and go as they pleased and the entire counting process in question was filmed and live streamed. And, no, it wasn't a "suitcase" and it wasn't "hidden."

    Donald Trump is not an evil puppet master mastermind. He is just delusional, narcissistic and not very bright.

    Elections can be complicated to run. This one seemed well organized, maybe a few glitches, but nothing major........ GREAT turnout.........( population enthusiasm) and most of all , it is being proven to be that way via Trumps multiple lawsuits. (in his attempt o overturn the results because they did not favor him. The people spoke and that should be respected. Trump is beavering badly and NOT presidential. An election is a massive undertaking..........and yet it was done smoothly and did America proud. It is troubling that Trump is so determined to over throw what the people decided . as per democracy . One wins,one loses. That is reality. .and until this time the transition has been handled with dignity, tact and good form ........ even when one party is disappointed. It is the nation......and the constitutions that maters......not one person with megalomania cal tendencies. Trump is undermining democracy and that is scary. (IMHO)

    How is it being proven with the lawsuits?

    So was it also "undermining democracy" when Democrats called Trump's 2016 victory "illegitimate?"

    Have you read the little screed Barr wrote which most people say was a major reason Trump made him AG? He disagrees strenuously with the Constitution's limitations on the powers of the Executive to the extent of there even being any. He really believes the President ought to be a completely unchecked dictator and thinks that the best way we ought to run the country
