I think what Sen Collins wen through, the various violent means the Democrats (and deep state) tried to use, and inflicted on her, is a clear warning flag of the danger our sciety faces right now. The mere fact a sitting Senator was abused this way, all for "her vote" and the whole circus the democrats ran, says it all, especially when Ayn Rand said:

As Ayn Rand put it, “the government is the means of placing the retaliatory use of force under objective control.” (“The Nature of Government,” in Capitalism: the Unknown Ideal, p. 331)

Obviously the democrats do not subscribe to Ayn Rands views....

    I have a lifelong friend who went into public service and is a person of great integrity and always tells the truth. I respect him very much, although we do disagree on much of politics.
    He has been personal friends with Senator Collins for a number of years, and although he will not give any specifics, apparently what she went through was for worse than has been divulged.
    I was personally horrified and very ashamed of my country and what we have become as a result of following Kavanaugh's confirmation process. It was sickening.

    As a skeptic I'd say "PIty the poor politicians. They cash in at our expense and then expect our sympathy although they consistently betray us and fail to deliver on promises."
    Maybe Sen. Collins is a patriot; maybe her staff are good, but confused, people.
    What I see are people who suck from the federal tit and produce nothing but misery for the rest of us. When they stop compromising their principles and deliver on promises, then I will be moved by such a story. Until then, I consider it as just more propaganda.
    (No offense to you, nick;^)

      No offense, freedom. A valid alternative view, and a possible scenario. I don't know what is real and fake anymore, except democrats are all guaranteed fake. Some Republicrats are real and honestly seem to reflect their voters, very few, but there are some.
      The audio book I just listened too "Give me a fast ship" (A history of the Revolutionary Navy) illustrated that we have had this very problem since the inception, John Adams played games with favorites, as well as Ben Franklin. Many politicians then only tried to get rich off the revolution. Many didin't even discharge their duties, and John Paul Jones was more obsessed with fame than following orders. So, it is not surprising to me to see this going on now. The way they treated her though is not only rude but totally disrespectful of the office. If someone had done that to "Spartacus" Booker, it would be all over the lamestream media, and riots in the street...

    When I ran for re-election to the City Council and learned an evil man was paying folks $20 to vote for the 25 year old arsonist drug addict who was running against me, I decided to give up on politics and withdrew my name!

      And guess what! The arsonist drug addict got elected and later arrested! Paybacks are fun! Just what the good old boys deserved! My husband said I scared him! Not hardly. He wore a tan colored beret and black pajamas and lived in the villages with the Viet Nam popular forces!

    She has jumped ship and gone to the "other"side many many times in the past. I think she realized that on this one she could "recover" some republican cred by voting for Kavanaugh. She added the flowery language in her "statement" before voting to recover more points.
    Maine is FULL of liberals that she must please. Unfortunately I will never believe her vote and showmanship was nothing more than a show.
    Nonetheless I am happy with her choice.
    However, I predict any important votes in the near future will send her back to the dark side.

    Senator Collins is one courageous and very intelligent little woman.
    Jackass Party evil and cowardice lost for the outcome of the Kavanaugh "hearing."

      No, she isn't. She's a hand-wringing 'moderate' and a Pragmatist with no political principles, known for often siding with the Democrats and who is wrong more often than that. They only went after her instead of someone else because she was the last one to figure out what was obvious long before without all her hand-wringing histrionics. Her chronic Pragmatist, 'moderate' indecision and trembling speech-making as the last one to decide, and then only after a meaningless "FBI investigation" she helped extort to delay further, only encouraged the irrationalists to believe she could be swayed by non-rational means. This time she happened to eventually land on the right side. The whole ordeal of delay she spawned, along with the rest of her record, is not a sign of great intelligence or courage.

      The manufactured circus did, however, manage to create a distraction from the necessity of hearings exploring a judge's political and judicial philosophy and how he implements them (no concern of a Collins Pragmatist), resulting in a new justice who is not at all a clear good choice. But under the circumstances he had to be confirmed on behalf of civilization against the goons on the Democrat left and without the otherwise inevitable further delays resulting in an even worse choice.

        Well, she had some kinda guts to give that speech shortly after being threatened by some crazy dude following her and yelling at her all by her lonesome on some sidewalk.
        As far as what you have stated about her, me dino never heard of her before the Kavanaugh hearing circus. Don't care to research her either at this point.
        Got stuff to get ready for a Christmas party tomorrow.
        Merry Christmas, by the way. Gave you +1 for a present.

          Collins has been notorious for years for frequently being a single 'holdout' vote blocking her own party on behalf of Democrats. That included supporting Obamacare at a crucial point. You can read the Collins background here on the forum https://www.galtsgulchonline.com/post...

          Her 'speech', dramatically delivered long after others knew what the vote was about and she continued hold out in the name of "consideration" and "deliberation", contained nothing that many had not recognized and already been saying for weeks. Yet she is suddenly regarded, dropping all context, as a Republican hero for not voting with the Democrats -- this time.

          Crazy people wandering the streets have not been a factor in the past for Senators making speeches in Washington. All prominent politicians receive death threats from crazies. She should have had better sense than as a US Senator to be wandering deserted streets at night -- the way normal people have the sense to stay out of dangerous dark alleys regardless of who is at fault in an attack.

          None of what she did makes her "courageous" and "very intelligent". If she didn't have such a bad reputation for undermining her own party and hadn't delayed to dramatically make herself the center of attention, her "speech" would not have become such a hullabaloo. It's like lavishing praise on your dog for not killing and eating the neighborhood cat. Anyone with any common sense (including the dog) would have done the same thing without the hand-wringing histrionics, delays, and threats of siding with the Democrat goons.

            Me dino has a problem with anyone who supported the unaffordable Affordable Health Care Act about which Nutty Nancy said just before pinheads made it a law: "Let's pass this bill to see what is in it,"~a statement that stunned me as the most stupid, reckless and unbelievable blather that ever came out of a politician's mouth.
            BTW, the post that link led me to did not deserve a zero. Merry Christmas on that too.
            Me dino is always interested in your opinions.

              Have a great Christmas party. (And remember that Collins is not part of it and not something to celebrate!)

                The only reason me dino is thinking of Collins right now is because you just mentioned her.
                Note to me dino self~Think of Collins? Think Obamacare. Then think of crackers.
                Collins is crackers. Collins is crackers. Collins is crackers.
                There, now me dino goes back to not thinking about her any more this Christmas day.
                Merry Christmas!

        ewv, that is a good point, perhaps they wanted them to make it a circus to get someone in who is reliably conservative, and not have to worry about actual down to the facts philosophy and understanding. Although not many hearings in the 40 years seemed to go to that extent beyond "How do you feel about Roe vs Wade".

          The Republicans didn't want Kavanaugh's philosophy discussed, whatever it is, because they can't and don't think in principles or want any philosophy discussed. They are afraid of trying to publicly defend their own positions on principles beyond mouthing slogans of vaguely being for the Constitution, without regard for what in principle that means.

          Remember that they did the same with the latest Obama judge -- Roberts: In his hearings he had been coached to say as little as possible. The current strategy for all of them has been to avoid meaningful discussion to avoid controversy, and otherwise 'ram it through', while the other side tries to create controversy to derail it.

          They make 'pragmatic' assumptions and don't know what they are getting, then are surprised, and the public is surprised, at how it turns out later in Supreme Court decisions compared with what we had been vaguely told to expect (again, like Roberts). The losers are the American people who are denied meaningful discussion with and about the judicial nominee in the hearings and in the media, along with the consequences for the Court. Pragmatism does not work.

          But there's no evidence that Republicans wanted the circus with its irrational, anti-intellectual antics and mudslinging that the Democrats created in the hearings and in the news to be as disruptive as possible. For all the Republicans' flaws, including Collins', they at least for once stood up on behalf of civilization and meant it.

          Once it happened, they did politically exploit and denounce those antics to try to make them backfire in the elections as they appealed to what is left of civilized premises of the public. That helped them keep the Senate -- getting a larger majority not so dependent on Collins' 'swing votes'. So we're back to the Democrats' radical left nihilism versus Republicans accepting and managing the decline with their Pragmatist 'me too but slower' as all that is left of civilization in politics. That distinction is also illustrated by Collins herself as all that is still available from the Maine electorate (and which can be expected to further decline in that state).

    It is an accepted tactic by the left. The more terror the better. They are using it against everyone who is not in agreement with their agenda, like Tucker Carlson of FOX.

    Ford raised $700,000 on "GoFundMe" that the "poor" woman used to secure her home after her "testifying". according to her. She said it was a terrifying experience but I did not see/heard anything specific, she probably made it up like she did her "abuse".

    And yes, FFA, Collins is a great Senator, having the guts to stand up and spell out the truth. It is not propaganda, as you say. This is the moral standing expected from all Senators but sorely missing.

    I confess that I did not look at the whole video (as it was apparently about 14 minutes long and I am allowed only limited time on this machine). But what I saw was outrageous enough. Conduct like that would be bad enough out on the street. But when it occurs in what is supposed to be a deliberative body where the laws of this country are passed, it goes beyond even considering tolerating it.

    Oboy, don't we wish! Merry Christmas all. I personally for the first time in my life, am experiencing a "Scrooge' attitude. I may straighten up and shop after Christmas. My BFF (the car girl) fell on her 'beautiful' and fractured her femur. Her blood sugar was 500! She is fine, however. One of my doctor friends was praying for me! He said he knew she'd be okay but I was having a meltdown. I'm so desperate I am going to drive over to my daughter's for Christmas dinner and I don't recall her being able to cook. She is a great RN though! Maybe I'll just drink the wine and raise my level somewhat. Again have a Happy Holiday!

    How Rand could look on the debates in Congress -- even that long ago -- and have faith that the result would be "objective control" boggles the imagination. What was she thinking?

      She was describing the nature of proper government, not modern Congress. It did not include "faith" in anything. "What was she thinking" is explained in the article. She spent a good part of her career explaining that the contemporary government was not a proper government. Why would you "imagine" the opposite?
