The Voting system in our nation is corrupt and it is time for people to start admitting it.
The incoming Democratic majority in the House of Representatives has the power to open a slew of investigations into the White House and President Trump when the new Congress is seated in January, and early indications are that Democrats plan to aggressively take advantage of their new authority, Fox News reports.
Bogging down the Trump administration with burdensome document requests and subpoenas could backfire, political analysts tell Fox News, but there is little doubt that the strategy — made more viable by heightened partisanship and loosened congressional norms — would impair Republicans’ messaging and even policy goals for the next two years.
“Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it, It is a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects. Will use the power strategically. In sharp contrast to the GOP Congress, a Democratic Congress will be led with transparency and openness, so the public can see what’s happening and how it affects them. … We will have accountability” ~ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Trump has flatly called Pelosi’s plan “illegal.”)
Tonight, the American people have demanded accountability from their government and sent a clear message of what they want from Congress.
@realDonaldTrump may not like it, but he and his administration will be held accountable to our laws and to the American people.

The Democrats are already talking about firearm bans and enforcing the HB 731, a bill which designated certain commonly owned semiautomatic firearms as contraband and required the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to seize them from their owners.
The language of the HB731 was clear:
A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Article 4 of Chapter 11 of Title 16 of the O.C.G.A., relating to dangerous instrumentalities and practices, so as to prohibit the possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets; to provide for crimes involving the possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets; to provide for criminal penalties; to designate certain weaponry and ammunition as contraband and to require seizure of such by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.
