    I suppose the better question to ask is: do we really want "crazy" Joe Biden to finish Obamy's term?
    Could you please explain how this is even remotely pssible?

    Impeachment isn't going to happen, but damaging the Democratic platform as a sham and corrupt is a good idea. Damage Hillary as inept is worth pursuing. She's a peacenik who couldn't pull the trigger and people got killed. Not someone we need in the WH. Do you want a corrupt IRS managing Obamacare?

    Do you want a government that thinks it has the right to ask you what you pray?

    So far, the only group that we know was that denied 501(c)(4) status was a progressive group who didn't campaign or engage in the political process. Instead their mission was to educate women so that they could run for office.

    The IRS rightly rejected them. Thats not a predominantly social welfare mission.
    Targeting of conservative vs liberal was something like 97 to 3. I'm sure there will be readily available data.

    A debate about the proper way to finance advocacy belongs elsewhere. Under the law of the land the conservatives were victims of discrimination.

    Really?

    Scrutiny of Political Nonprofits Sets Off Claim of Harassment

    The agency plans this year to press existing nonprofits like American Crossroads, on the Republican side, and Priorities USA, on the Democratic side, to justify their tax-protected status as “social welfare” organizations, a status that many tax professionals believe is being badly abused.

    That's fine and probably something that should be done, but it's off-topic.
