    Alabama Sen. Shelby: 'I couldn't vote for Roy Moore'

    Alabama's senior member of Congress comes out against Roy Moore. He didn't have to. He chose to do this.

    He said:

    He must be one of the Republicans who actually remember what the party of Reagan stood for (I voted for him, remember). As much as I beat up on Reagan for the disaster of supply-side economics, he would never - ever - have tolerated someone like Roy Moore being in the GOP, much less supported him for Congress. And Reagan would have outright rejected Trump.

    I honestly don't know what's going to happen between now and 2020. I had thought that the GOP would come to its senses concerning supporting Trump (and especially Moore), but I was wrong. I can't help but wonder what's going to happen if Trump (and possibly Pence) gets impeached and removed from office - will there be an armed uprising by Trump supporters? I honestly can't discount that possibility.

    Actually you aren't off very much at all. I work for a very conservative organization and they were ready to buy guns and march on Washington if Hillary won the election. Last night I was reading someone's comment on here and they were poking fun at Trump's 2020 Democratic challenger. Basically asking people who they thought the Democratic Unicorn was going to be. Who was going to defeat the almighty Trump in battle? No one can!!! These people don't want Trump to leave, and if Moore wins, it will be reaffirm everything they believe in and they will feel emboldened enough to try keep Trump in office as long as possible!!

    This leads me to believe that Moore's time before the Senate Ethics Committee may not be the slam-dunk pass, that I thought it might be.

    I find this statement to be rich in hyperbole! March with guns, really?

    I don't doubt that he, and you, support Ronald Reagan. Throwing integrity to the wind, his administration armed and training terrorists, blurred the lines between religion and politics, supported corrupt bailouts of the Savings and Loans, disgracing our country before the international world court, and championed the corruption of the military/industrial complex. People like Ronald Reagan epitomize the decay in American politics of the last 30 years.

    Without a shadow of a doubt I believe that you long for the corruption of the Reagan administration.

    I heard Pier 1 imports stock peaked around the time of the Charlottesville ‘Rally.’

    The U.S. treasury has paid out more than 17 million dollars as part of a slush fund to sexual assault victims as a result of inappropriate behavior of members of Congress. Many of those members are still serving. Before even thinking about starting some crap with more, the ethics committee should investigate the people still in office right now.

    For example...the people might choose Moore, warts and all knowing his history. There are member in Congress right now that are serving and people don't know the details of what they have done. Start there, with those people currently serving.
