In case you have been living under a rock or in an underground bunker somewhere and have not been paying attention to real news, you are now seeing what America has fought against from its beginning. When our government allows anyone to take away our freedom of speech, that means the government does not follow our constitution.
This has been coming on for a long time, and now it is here for all to see. There is a reason why our leaders have used an invisible force to cause our citizens to become unemployed and dependent upon the very government that is supposed to protect us. There is a reason why the speaker of the House has proposed banning ordinary words on the House floor like mother, father, brother, or sister. How can a representative ask for a corruption investigation of the incoming president’s family?
Did you ever think this could happen in America, the beacon of freedom on the hill, the land of opportunity, the land where rule of law and fairness reside? When Americans see the dumbest lawsuits ever and also courts not allowing an investigation into voter fraud, there is nowhere to turn. At least half the country, the ones who pay the bulk of taxes, are totally backed into a corner with nowhere to turn for fairness or the enforcement of laws. We are at a very bad crossroad.
I hope cooler heads prevail and that someone in our government can bring back the hopes of citizens who feel America has passed its time as the world leader. This is what a communist takeover looks like.
