    Does Putin have something on Obama?

    President Obama knew about Russian meddling prior to the 2016 election, but did nothing about it. Oh, he claims he wagged his finger during a summit and told...

    And I think there are far more than you suspect, and the rest would just need a little persuading.

    I didn't claim it was a counter-balance. I meant the D never-ending push left is in contrast...

    Re: Should the US have a Secure Border?

    Let's round the cost of a secured border up to $20 billion. That would be a one-time expenditure equal to about two days of the annual federal budget. That isn't much in terms of relative cost, and...

    Re: Religious Test for the Supreme Court

    You're against using religious views as a factor in confirmation. Check.


    But you want to make absolutely sure religion won't factor into any judge's decision making, so you're going to apply a...

    What if Senators suspect a nominee will do so, but have no proof - is that legitimate reason to vote against confirmation?

    Hey, you. Yeah, YOU! Start a new thread.

    If you think ODN needs more variety in debate topics, or someone with a different point of view, start a thread.

    You’re focusing on a couple year segment when R moved right, several years ago, rather than a summary of the entire data set. You also refuse to consider how D now embraces Socialism,...
