The Blue Buus... is callin us... Driver, where you
What if you’re the first of those things in terms of who you lean to because you think they might have a broader appeal and therefore be more electable but you’re not the rest? You do know it’s more nuanced than you suggest

I responded about that to Dax 20 mins later and to Fog in greater context.

As I've said before you cannot serve two masters, especially if the big business master is dictating policy for the working class which is, essentially, what's been happening stealthily over the years.

People have ignore it until the shit hit the fan.

Only criminals need pardons. Anyone who asked for a pardon is clearly demonstrating their consciousness of guilt which is a pretty big deal.

Like you say, they 'should' be f*cked.
Please don't take this as me defending the people on this list, they are some of the most vile characters on the planet and lengthy jail sentences for any of them would make the world a much better place.

People that think they might be attacked for their political beliefs also would be interested in pardons. To be clear I don't think thats them, but they might have thought so

Extremely interesting and informative analysis on the makeup of the Republican party and the waning power of the religious right. For example, it turns out that only 32% or regular Republican church-goers voted for Trump!

The issue with this is that the Religious right and Republican church-goers are not the same thing......between 75 and 81% of White evangelical Protestant voters went for Trump

Their political beliefs are protected under the First Amendment. They not only knew what they were doing was unconstitutional, but that there was an element of criminal liability attached to their actions, hence the need for a Presidential Pardon.

The USA is still a Democracy where people aren't generally prosecuted for their political beliefs.

Sorry perhaps I'm not getting my point across correctly..... this isn't my position, but it could be the position of someone looking for a pardon... indeed MTG(one of the people on the list) has said this point.... saying that the 1/6 rioters are being locked up for their political beliefs. Again this isn't my view but one of the people we are talking about
