This is a vital year in our nation’s history. We’re down to the nitty-gritty of actions that will determine if we remain a free nation. Since Inauguration Day of last year, we’ve seen the true colors of the Democrat party. Their platform promotes lawlessness by defunding and ‘handcuffing’ the police and politicizing the organization.
The Democrats have successfully used Covid to perpetuate excessive fear while maintaining strict control through mandates and harmful lockdowns.
Rather than holding open meetings, our Democrat legislators seek refuge in Zoom meetings which severely limit, if not cancel public attendance to monitor the meetings. Any concerns or dissenting opinions of policies are being crushed and as we see daily, censored or ridiculed.
What may be the end goal in keeping people’s anxiety level high is to proclaim that in order to keep people safe we must exclusively use mail-in ballots in our elections. There goes election integrity right out the window! Ballot harvesting and ballot traffickers stuffing ballot boxes will cancel out legal votes.
Without regard for American citizens in need, the Democrats have flung open the southern border to allow anyone and everyone to freely enter our country, with absolutely no vetting. Drugs, sex traffickers, terrorists, sickness and disease and who knows what all is freely and deliberately allowed to enter our country! And to top it off, our tax dollars are being used to transport these illegals all over the nation, many flown or bussed during the dead of night and dropped off with no warning to local officials. This puts a huge burden on communities which are already suffering from a mismanaged and collapsing economy.
Republicans must have a clear agenda to focus initially on these 3 issues:
1) a strong police force that defends law and order and which remains free from politicization
2) freedom to speak and confront (without reprisal) issues that concern people’s lives – jobs, informed consent in their medical decisions and awareness of their children’s school curriculum
3) insure election/voter integrity by voting in person on Election Day showing a valid ID.
