Ive tried to stay out of politics here lately...but I think that this deserves special consideration.

Russia has done a ton of this, the US govt is looking into it and I think we need to educate ourselves as citizens about how we can be manipulated.
Russia's goal is to make themselves larger (Crimea) and fracture everyone else to make them weaker (California secession movement bankrolled and controlled by Russian interests)

Its about how the Russians have been frelling with us for years...

Its about how a foreign government has played on the gullibility of people to cause us to fight amongst ourselves.
The intent of the meddling, the indictment says, was to "sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election."
Its about how alot of the far left and far right trolls are full of crap and how Russia has been waging a new kind of war on us, that has (until now) been sorely undercovered.

And no, before you kneejerk yourselves, this is not an anti-Trump post...there is still no proof of Trump collusion, this is about a foreign government manipulating Americans into thinking the most divisive things possible...the world is not black and white; right and left...maybe you guys will listen this time.

Russia has had a system in place for manipulating the US internally since the beginning of the cold war, if not earlier. Why is everyone suddenly so surprised? If you think this is a new thing and the first election that they have swayed, you'd be naive.
