so we're now at the point where we're talking about jailing our political opponents?

short answer is "yes". That's actually where we're at. We have a president leading the effort . One that's using our Justice Department to "investigate" those within the department that he sees as a threat . He's finally installed his own head of the department who is willing to carry out his purging of those he fears will bring him to justice . Along with our own fellow citizens of this nation cheering it on in heartbreaking ignorance .Yes. Our own fellow American citizens , who grew up in a free society - NOT AN AUTHORITARIAN DICTATORSHIP - pleased with the prospect of jailing their former president , or who ever Trump declares is an "enemy of the people ". In fact , not just pleased. They're nothing short of gleeful at the prospect. This president has managed to tap into the darkest impulses of our fellow Americans, inciting their deepest grievances , and turning them against everything that truly makes America great . All because it makes them feel better about their imagined slights. While the rest of the country looks on with a broken heart . Hoping against all odds that they'd look past our division and come home. Where they'll find themselves welcome at long last .

Well ...theoretically.

News flash here for you .....

Jailing our political opponents is what Mueller was doing.

The AG and the DOJ will now be jailing people for commiting crimes ..... despite political association.

It's called the rule of law.

You know that thing the Left seems to have so much trouble with applying to their own.

Not payback OBAMA APPOINTED Inspectors General has already Issued a recommendation to prosecute for McCabe, IMO I think Comey, and Clapper are next, followed by Rice.

These are REAL felonies, not made up crap purchased from Putin like the Democrats have tried to sell us, and you swallowed hook line and sinker.

Here on PH, we’ve already had one poster call for the “annhilation” of “leftist ideology” and “re-education camps” for liberals, and another poster gleeful at the prospect of Charging trump opponents with treason and imposing the death penalty.

During Argentina’s Dirty War, the military junta set out to eradicate leftist “subversion.” They “disappeared” some 30,000 people in the process (not all of them leftists; some were family members of leftists and others were unlucky enough to be on someone’s shit list).

Guess what. They failed to eradicate leftism.
