    Why is the GOP the party of criminals?

    GOP administrations still have 29 times more indictments, 64 times more convictions, and 24 times more prison sentences than Dem administrations.

    Note that the above does not factor in Trump administration indictments, convictions, the charts were done before Trump. So, overall, it's much worse.


    So, if you were serious about draining the swamp, vote for democrats.

    Because democrats are not prosecuted for misdeeds. Right now in WA we have an Attorney General persecuting a citizen activist on BS charges that are unconstitutional and yet heís not been indicted. We had a state Senator on the budget committee try to extort female agency employees for funding for their departments, no criminal charges and he was allowed to resign.

    The democrats political coalition is stronger, and so they rarely prosecute their own

    There have been democrat misdeeds prosecuted, so your premise is false.

    Name one President and his first lady that have had 25 years of investigations?

    Now why would republicans, after millions spent, all those investigations, not prosecute if they had,
    in fact, found something they could pin on them? There is no logical reason they would not.

    There is only one logical conclusion, there were no misdeeds that rose to a level a prosecutor would want to prosecute.



    What is not false is the fact that GOP administrations still have 29 times more indictments, 64 times more convictions, and 24 times more prison sentences than Dem administrations.

    It's the comparison that is being highlighted here.

    Moreover, there are 17 investigations going on in the president, a level unprecented in history, and none are yet completed. There have been numerous indictments and convictions surrounding the president thus far.

    Re: Why is the GOP the party of criminals?

    My guess is the Democrats are up to at least as many criminal shenanigans as the Republicans, but the Democrats are smarter about covering their tracks.

    Now I wonder who that comment pissed off the most, Democratic DP members or Republican DP members.
    <-- That is a winky face. If I use it in a post then that means I was more interested in being silly, sarcastic or hyperbolic than being accurate, factual or sincere at that particular moment.

    May I suggest that you not guess and stand behind a position, and back it up?

    If you are including the Trump administration in those stats, they are automatically skewered, imo. The Trump administration is the most corrupt in my lifetime (which is long and substantial, lol), but I can honestly say that looking back, I see little difference in the "criminal" offenses between democrats and republicans, although comparing Nixon with Clinton, Nixon tilts the scales slightly toward the "more corrupt" while Clinton tips it more in the "more sleazy" scale.

    Apparently the stats in the OP predate the Trump administration, which surprised me.

    Whoa. Then Republicans lose, Democrats win... hands down, lol. Politicians basically suck, no matter which side of the aisle they claim, but once the Trump administration gets factored in, there's no danged contest! Guess Reagan's Iran-Contra was the "winning" formula in the OP's statistics.

    Short answer, OscarLevant? And this is under the presumption that you are asking honest questions and not just engaging in some trolling before hitting the hay. With that presumption in mind, I question I would rejoin would be: What were most of the convictions for? If they were for obstruction of justice and perjury, that is because most Democratic politicians and administrative officials know when to lawyer up and exercise their Fifth and Sixth Amendment Rights to avoid obstruction of justice charges and being caught in perjury traps. Most Republicans do not.

    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.
