Not to mention getting away with murder.
Government is a disease...
...masquerading as its own cure
Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV
Yeah, the Democrats seem to have a monopoly on that. LBJ was accused of that back while he was in Texas and I'm not talking about the Kennedy assination. He was very underhanded. Bill Sol Estes testified in 1984 after LBJ was dead the following:

Estes testified that Lyndon Johnson, Cliff Carter, Malcolm Wallace and himself met several times to discuss the issue of the "loose cannon" - Henry Marshall. Marshall had refused a LBJ-arranged promotion to Washington headquarters, and it was feared that he was about to talk. Johnson, according to Estes finally said, "Get rid of him," and Malcolm "Mac" Wallace was given the assignment. According to testimony, Wallace followed Marshall to a remote area of his farm and beat him nearly unconscious. Then while trying to asphyxiate him with exhaust from Marshall's pickup truck, Wallace thought he heard someone approaching the scene, and hastily grabbed a rifle which customarily rested in the window rack of the truck. Quickly pumping five shots into Marshall's body, Wallace fled the scene. Suicide.
That 1984 grand jury testimony accomplished only one official action. Marshall's death certificate was finally changed to read: "Cause of death - murder by gunshot." All of the guilty participants were dead - Johnson, Carter and Wallace. The only one left was Estes, and the U. S. Justice Department, getting wind of the Robertson grand jury testimony, wanted to talk to him. A letter was sent to Estes, requesting a meeting with him to discuss the provocative charges he had made. Estes enlisted the legal services of Douglas Caddy to represent him in the matter. Caddy then wrote a letter to the Justice Department asking for the protection of immunity, among other things for his client. In his letter, Caddy outlined far more than the Justice Dept. had bargained for. In addition to the crimes Estes had testified to for the Robertson County grand jury, Estes listed seven more murders directly linked to Lyndon Johnson, one of them being that of President John F. Kennedy; and all of them at the hand of Malcolm Wallace.

I could have ended the war in a month. I could have made North Vietnam look like a mud puddle."
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
Sorta like the Jim Jones debacle, only in slow motion.

I heard Rush Limbaugh was telling his sheep to vote for Hillary. That has to be the stupidest thing I ever heard of. That would just keep her in the race and even give her better odds to win. What ever happened to voting for the candidate you wanted to win. Everyone wants to play the politics game.
Apparently, he thinks McCain can beat Hilary but not Barak. I tend to agree. Hillary has ticked off a huge majority of the nation.
Why would you even want to take that chance? What if there are just enough wackos in the world to vote her in? Wouldn't that be a foolish mistake.

Besides, it's fun to watch.
