When one side is so hateful, dumb and delusional like this, there is no coming together with people who are basically the Taliban. Just need to get people to vote and nobody would pander to these people and we can shut them up so the intelligent people can work on solutions
Intelligent people are working on solutions. Dumb people are trying to figure out some way anyway to rest political power from Trump, as their sole function in life.

Trump is part of the problem, not the solution.

Also, these lyrics seem appropriate form Rush's Neil Peart, who recently passed:

When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow?

We turned our gaze
From the castles in the distance
Eyes cast down
On the path of least resistance

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise


The hypocrites are slandering
The sacred halls of truth
Ancient nobles showering
Their bitterness on youth
Can't we find
The minds that made us strong?
Oh can't we learn
To feel what's right and what's wrong?


Whoa can't we raise our eyes
And make a start?
Can't we find the minds
To lead us closer to the heart?
rush a farewell to kings lyrics

We allow free speech. We don't allow lies. You should try it.
If a government official is deciding what is and is not a lie and then stifling that person or group, then it is not free speech at all. You should try real free speech.

Enforcing the law and following the constitutional guidance regarding impeaching corrupt presidents should just get tossed out the window?

Yeah, but then we'd probably get Citizens United and an Electoral College. Our country has enough problems without that kind of crap.

When you not only accept but in fact embrace a president who lies continuously, do you expect anyone to listen to your advice?
