Terms like "RINO" and "DINO", uni-party, corporatist, free-trader etc get thrown around a lot

What I would I really like to see is people explaining what they believe and stand for that links them to a party and not what they think the other side is or is not.

The Senate can get things done quickly

Who knew?

"The Senate on Thursday unanimously approved a resolution warning President Trump not to let the Russian government question diplomats and other officials, shortly after the White House released a statement backpedaling on a proposal to allow Moscow to help interrogate U.S. citizens such as former Ambassador Michael McFaul."
