    ELIMINATE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY The ENTIRE Democratic Party is the Epitome of Deception!! Democracy IS an Illegitimate Form of Government… America IS a Constitutional Republic. That would make us ALL Republicans! A Republic is Self Ruling by The Rule of Law… Democracy IS a Falsehood! We can no longer afford to believe we are a Majority Rule…

    BLM and Antifa are terror groups and must be stopped. These terrorists are working for the Democrats.

    This is all on Biden, he was obsessed with reversing anything Trump did. Stopped building the wall and opened the border. Why should taxpayers now have to foot the bill for his stupidity?!

    This did not need to happen. It was under control. Our president and VP are no where to be found. The woman in charge has quit. This administration is a joke. A joke on the American people.

    But how will our elections ever be fair again? Georgia finally got its head out of its rear end and did the right thing, but will other states follow? What’s the point of even going to the polls when they can just rig them again if they’re losing, and just dump more mail-in ballots?

    Biden and the whole bunch of cronies in Washington need to come off the hip and pay for their illegal friends.

    The Biden administration agrees with Trump on the SALT caps for taxes, will keep the middle-class tax cuts Trump signed into law four years ago, and now could restart border wall construction.
