Ignoring the due process from the U.S. Constitution is what lynch mobs are made of. If enough people individually consider their own particular "perception" as "fact" it becomes mob rule. Interesting how many people in our government succumbed to mob rule...either didn't understand their oath or ignored it.
The question is, how do you fight that?
If that is the case, then why are we so happy that Franken is resigning? I mean, he wasn't convicted of anything right? If we go by that standard, then we should be against him resigning for that reason, otherwise we're just hypocrites.
Does anyone here not believe that OJ killed his wife and her boyfriend? He was tried, and found not guilty. So why is he viewed as being a murderer? Because he lost the civil suit? Civil suits require only that you convince half of the jury, and are not criminal in nature. But we all agree that OJ got away with double homicide. Heck, I even call him a murderer. You know what, he more than likely did do it, but according to the courts, he didn't.
Regardless of how everyone feels about Moore's accusers, just reading the responses in this thread regarding Moore, you can clearly see why women tend to not come forward with this stuff.
Are some of these women liars? Possibly. There should be an investigation and a trial to get to the bottom of it.
From my experiences throughout my life, where there's smoke, there could be a fire, but when you see smoke billowing, it's definitely a fire.
Our politicians should be held to a higher standard than those on the left....they should be beyond reproach. The last time I paid attention, it was 8 women who accused him. Where there's smoke billowing, there's a fire. I hope to see all of them take it to the next step and prove it in court. If they don't, then we'll have an answer regarding whether or not he did it.
There's a woman running for congress in Colorado, as a democrat, and she just dropped out because a guy that worked for her claimed she sexually harassed him. Should we believe him, or or give her the benefit of the doubt and wait until all of the facts are out? That's just one guy, not 8 people. I'm assuming everyone commenting in favor of Moore are fine with her continuing to run though right?
