I oppose renaming highway US Highway 260. Considering that even Sen. Mitch McConnell stated that former President Trump was guilty of inciting the violence on Jan. 6, and only voted to acquit because the former president was out of office, I oppose honoring the man.

The traitor Benedict Arnold’s wounded foot has a monument at Saratoga, but we shouldn’t honor bone spurs.

Trump acquitted a second time because he was not guilty. Your Trump Derangement Syndrome is showing

But not exonerated. Your intelligence is showing.

Trump was "acquitted" by a minority of Senators, who represented a minority of Americans by over 75 million. He was "elected" by a minority of American voters in the first place, and only became "president" by a quirk of the Electoral College. He was voted out of office by a margin of over seven million Americans. He never reached more than a 49% approval rating, and left office with the lowest approval rating in modern history. Don't delude yourself - Trump was one of (if not THE) most unpopular presidents in American history. The rest of us know that.

The majority of GOP senators said that they did not vote of Trumps guilt but on the fact that they didn't think that this was the appropriate venue to hear the case.

John McCain Highway sounds like a good name.

Yes it does, great idea!

All senators, including GOP senators take the following oath of office:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same..."

By voting Trump not guilty, the majority of GOP senators, violated their oath of office and supported the enemies of our country and our Constitution that launched the attack on the seat of our U.S. government, the Capitol. GOP senators showed the rest of the world, that they are cowards and lack any kind of patriotism.

The GOPQ is making Patriot a bad word.
