    The problem is that those who do have the power to file charges (such as Holder) applaud what happened and have absolutely no desire to file charges.

    That's just our present reality - progressives are extremely partisan and hateful to anyone who opposes their ideas and if they have power to do so they will make like hell for anyone who opposes them....

    Nothing done about the IRS scandal? Shocking...shocking I say.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't like anyone who believes they can circumvent the Bill of Rights or Constitution because it "makes sense" in a remedial or political way to them - or whatever their intent is.

    I stand by the founding documents and "pot meet kettle" does not apply to me because I'm not partisan in any way shape or form.

    I may strongly disagree with a lot of people but not because of political affiliation - but because of their tyrannical collective ideas as a group - republicans included.

    The instructions that Internal Revenue Service officials used to look for applicants seeking tax-exempt status with “Tea Party” and “Patriots” in their titles also included groups whose names included the words “Progressive” and “Occupy,” according to I.R.S. documents released Monday. - See more at: So IRS Didn't 'Target Conservative Groups,' After All | Crooks and Liars
    Would it be actually possible that the tea party movement was much bigger than liberal or progressive groups. How many liberal groups filed a application vs conservative groups? You guys are comparing the count without actual knowing how many applied.

    Was that a policy or an isolated event? That's the only thing I've heard that was actionable.

    Regardless, you asked, I answered, now you want to dismiss it as an 'isolated event', so, ok...Who got fired for it? Who went to jail? How far up did that decision go?

    Seems y'all's "scandal" has been reduced to an isolated event having little if anything to do with "suppression of expression.

    Do you even know if it was intentional? Is it possible an error occurred during the avalanche of applications post CU? Is this allegation even true? The others weren't.

    Well, we just don't know that do we? Unless a Special Prosecutor is appointed that question is successfully covered up...

    BTW, you didn't answer ANY of my questions....Why?
