    The Republicans became more libertarian after the Obama administration? Really?

    No, you said the Democratic Party "sure as hell isn't going to legalize marijuana" implying Republicans are more open to legalizing. Absolutely false and you know it.

    I said neither party will legalize marijuana. I never said that the Repiblicans were more likely to do so. What I implied, is that Democrat congressmen are no more open to it than Republican congressmen.

    Based on what I have heard so far, I am OK with Sessions being Attorney General for the following reasons:

    1) Yes, Sessions does have a racist past, but that was 40 years ago. But people change. My brothers and I were raised racists, but today I live in a black neighborhood, and one of my brothers is married to a black woman. Once more, people change. Sessions has prosecuted the KKK, and done other things to show me that he is not the same man he was 40 years ago. I am willing to give him a chance.

    2) Sessions is a far right wing Conservative, but Trump was elected, and a president's appointments serve at his pleasure.

    While I am strongly against Tillerson, for reasons given in another thread that I started, I don't see why Sessions shouldn't be confirmed. IMHO, he is capable, and his party did win the election, which means that Trump has the right to nominate the people he wants, and they should be confirmed by the Senate, barring any real legal or ethical issues. He may be against Roe v. Wade, and other laws of the land, but he said today that his job is not to make the law, but to enforce existing law, and that is what he would do. I will take his word on that. Until he commits an action which speaks otherwise, I am OK with his selection.

    the "nominates who he wants" and "should be confirmed by the senate", does this include supreme court justices? and did you feel this way about obama?

    You can't respond, so you resort to name calling. Typical liberal.

    You did post that we can't call the Republicans authoritarian after the Obama regime. So, how did that party change?

    Obtuse is name calling?

    Who passed Obamacare? Who wants gun control? Who wants to force American citizens to take vaccinations? Who wants to shut down segments of the private sector? Who wants higher taxes? Who wants more intrusive government? Who wants to pass hate speech laws? Who pushed for hate crime laws? It ain't Republicans.

    Yes I did. I think it was a disgrace that his pick was not even given a confirmation hearing. But, it appears that the Democrats are going to do the same.
