‘Government tyranny’ is finally here, but this time it’s being met with crickets from the Republicans

I have been listening to “conservatives” blast government tyranny since I was an 8-year-old boy watching the “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.” Every time liberals want to use government to address a problem, from enforcing civil rights laws, to protecting the environment to lifting the burden of expensive health insurance, “conservatives” have found a…

I have been listening to “conservatives” blast government tyranny since I was an 8-year-old boy watching the “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.” Every time liberals want to use government to address a problem, from enforcing civil rights laws, to protecting the environment to lifting the burden of expensive health insurance, “conservatives” have found a way to equating the federal government to evil.

Well, now we have this evidence that it was all a con.

I’ll have more to say about this later, but for now, please don’t given them the benefit of the doubt. State’s rights and local control only matter when it’s good for them politically, and by “them” I don’t mean the normal people of the United States.

    The non-reporting of these events in MSM is scaring me almost as much as the actual abuses of the Administration. I am beginning to think November 3rd will not save us! We will be too far gone down the rabbit hole in the next 4 months, let alone the next 4 years!

    I think this is a 4-part stunt by this administration to a) appear “strong” to its base, b) promote the narrative that “these” (i.e. Democratic run) cities full of “those” people (blacks, Latinos, liberals) are out of control, c) distract from DJT’s monumental failures, and d) intimidate Democratic leaning demographics.

    Let’s not allow any fear dissuade us from voting this dumpster fire administration from office. These fascists are going to do what they do but our focus should be on what we must do regardless of their actions. The next week and the following 6 months will be very challenging but let’s keep our eyes on the prize.

      Mr. Prayer, would you mind if I borrowed your 4-part thesis? With credit, of course.
