but not a single one has ever worked alongside our mortal enemy to help destroy America.

Wow. Three conspiracy theories all in one short sentence. :-) Where to start? :-)

Well, first off, based on what Rosenstein said yesterday, we still don’t have a politician that has “worked with the Russians” to do anything undesirable to the US. “Trump worked with the Russians” was always close to “there are UFO’s all around us”.

Now, “Members of the Trump CAMPAIGN worked with the Russians” was always a more likely possibility, but now, that’s dead in the water as well; and even if they had, it would have been splitting hairs to convince the US citizens that it’s OK for the Clinton campaign to hire a foreign national to do opposition research, but it’s not OK for the Trump campaign to do it.

Further, Russia is not and never has been our “mortal enemy”; the USSR was our mortal enemy, because they had declared their desire to extend their ideology all over the planet, and obviously that would have entailed wiping us off it. But that’s the USSR, not Russia; the fact that we have some geopolitical rivalries does not make them a “mortal enemy.”

And finally, nobody outside of a sanatorium thinks that Putin wants to “destroy America”. Putin himself would have to be insane to have that as an objective, and anyone who’s watched Putin operate in the slightest realizes that although he may be Machiavellian…..he’s definitely not insane.

Trump, along with his rightwing propaganda machine, has worked relentlessly to undermine the peoples’ faith in our democracy, its ideals and the institutions that protect it. It you can’t see that then you are either a Russian agent or a blind ass true believer.

Somebody here is a true believer, but it’s not I. Our nation was founded by men who intended us to have a healthy suspicion of government and politicians, and history teaches us that at the times that we’ve had too MUCH trust in our politicians and institutions, we get Joe McCarthy and J. Edgar Hoover.

So, you can take your last sentence, which essentially translates to “if you don’t agree with me, you’re either compromised or stupid” (boy, that’s some enormous ego you have there, Jim) and shove it right up where the sun don’t shine.

The fact that you believe something doesn’t make it correct.

Oh, and BTW, does the fact that you didn’t address my prior post mean that you agree that Warren is a demogogue? :-)
