    Your description makes it sound like the link is the full movie and I wasn't interested in watching a movie. But it's a trailer, and other people might be interested in that because it's only 4 min.

    You said the system is broken because they're debating, but the debate is part of the system. Therefore the system is not broken.

    Tom Paine wasn't an American, but he came to help us in our great revolutionary struggle against the kings, and queens, and the tyrants. In 1776, in the crisis, he wrote these beautiful words, it was a very tough time for the country, people didn't know which way things were going to go. Were we going to win, against all hope? Because for most of the rest of human history, it had been the kings and queens and tyrants and nobles lording it over the common people. Could political self-government work in America, was the question.

    And Paine wrote this pamphlet called "The Crisis," and he said these beautiful words…He said, "These are the times that [try] men and women’s souls. The summer soldier and sunshine patriot will shrink at this moment from the service of their cause and their country, but everyone who stands with us now will win the love and favor and affection of every man and every woman for all time. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered, but we have this saving consolation: the more difficult the struggle, the more glorious in the end will be our victory.

    Good luck in your deliberations.

    Case by the house managers was devastating. If they don't convict, my belief is it's because they've been paid off. Every other country with corrupt politicians works like that. Bribes. If the same happens here, that's why. I know they're craven, but blind loyalty needs actual returns.

    Just like years of priming his supporters for violence, Trump has been priming Republican Senators and House reps to comply and support him at all costs.
