Just to be clear, we do not live in a "democracy" in America. That's one of the biggest lies perpetuated again the populace. We live in a Constitutional Republic, which is what the folks who started this country intended. That creation allows power to be centralized, and it allows the illusion that the voters have a "say" in what happens.

We don't have a say, and we never have.

We are NOT A DEMOCRACY, we never have been. WE ARE a Representative Republic, which is what we were created to be. To your point, a Republic REQUIRES an involved populace, and it requires that those persons in the Republic help run it. However, what has happened in the past ~140 years is that we have a common enemy in the form of Communism (and its acolytes) that has determined to take this Republic down from the inside. Those of us hard working everyday Americans haven't paid attention, simply because we've been working hard trying to provide for our families and thought everyone else was doing the same thing--and we were WRONG. We have an organized, determined enemy of the people that we were WARNED about more than 70 years ago (at the very least), that we have IGNORED. We now have a bloated, gargantuan government that was NEVER intended to exist, and we have those in Congress who intend to keep growing it. WE THE PEOPLE MUST STAND UP AGAINST THIS TYRANNY, or we will fall prey to it. CONTINUED GROWTH OF THE FERAL GOVERNMENT WILL NOT CEASE UNTIL WE THE PEOPLE FORCE IT TO. Get involved! Contact your Representatives and Senators and let them know you will not support the growth of Government, and will vote against any who do.

I think Trump was corrupt and full of himself. Having said that, i think biden is proving to be much worse.

Ive given up on both partys. They both have supported corruption and greedy politicians that give in to company lobbyists.

I think people are crazy if they still trust in their R or D party.

When people start to realize their differences are manufactured and have been used to institute a greater evil, we can all start to slowly come back together and find common ground.

Not so. I heard much the same from the far lefties of that time as the far conservatives of this time. It goes part and parcel with extremism.

“ Feral Government “......lol, such a good description in sooo many ways ! May I quote you ?

Anyone who’s ever dealt with feral cats can tell you there is only one way to solve the problem, FIX the cats one by one ! No easy task ! Heck maybe that’s what the agenda is for us !? Thing is, fixing a small group of Feral cats makes a lot more sense than killing all the domestic cats just chilling and trying to live a happy cat life....

Right... but it's still a form of democracy.

As for the communism bit, that's typically hyperbolic and used as political banter.

Socialism is usually more fitting, and I'd agree that there is an issue here... Though I'd disagree that there's only one sect of people in the country trying to enact some form of it.

One party wants to give handouts to people, and the other wants to use tax dollars, subsidies, and or policies to prop up corporations which deteriorates every level of our society. I don't like either approach.

IMHO, it all ties back to this, The Genisis 6 conspiracy.
There is no earthly way to fix this mess.
Ephesians 6:12
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places".
I just said this in another thread, we're in the end game now.




I think we are in the birth pangs of the end game.

Edge Lord is an edgy person. In memes format, it would be someone posting Hitler memes because of the taboo factor saying how great he is. They do it to get a reaction but can also be a controversial statement. Like siding with one extreme group over the norm. They use shocking/extreme language and most the time they don't even support it but still use it to shock people. An example, was a group I was in and a guy constantly gives these over the top speeches of why woman shouldn't vote. (upsetting all the woman, causing them to argue with him) saying things like, the only voting a woman should be doing is asking me how many slices of ham on a sandwich etc etc etc when a girl asked me what was up with him? I said he loves being an edgy lord, just ignore him.

The come clean initiative is a bill however incomplete at this stage, I have on mind that should see a Congressional vote pass it into law. IMO a return on our forefathers initial investment, if you will.

I don't see any Rep taking the initiative to hear me out. Have msgd reps on gab, and twitter, even local broadcasting in my area...

Nobody that CAN pass a background wants to submit to such a scrutiny I propose.
535 people unmotivated to come clean for the good of the nation that by default would create huge jobs numbers in the field of private investigators...

Like all pipe dreams, I'm sure it has flaws too.

So is Rand Paul so squeaky clean they don’t have anything on him?

Or is his time running out….



Being Ron's son, I would say odds are real good Rand is clean as a whistle. They may give out degrees but no Doctor ever was given their Medical license without putting in the work. After they get out and work on their own is when the Pharma money influences their Medical Practice financially if we lament the sell outs for CV19.

You missed a huge point: SOCIAL MEDIA and censorship. Without them, this wouldn’t be as rough. Lobbyists and term limits are also an issue. Appointment limits should have been in our constitution... dammit founders!! I wish it was in it. “No member of congress shall represent their state for more than a period of 12 years.” a reply to: Sublimecraft

it's a paradox.....the imperfect seeking and demanding perfection . Do you really think those who overturn all governments and institutions will somehow be morally superior ??




If these morons in charge now are doing half of what we see in the data, then most any of us would be morally superior who are not currently in the elite (Pedo loving?) club. George Carlin said to us "there is a big club out there, and we ain't in it, we ain't in it". "They don't care about you"! "It's all a sham".

We have idiots running things because bigger idiots voted them in.

No, we had theives putting themselves and their people in place after the votes were counted and claiming their people won. When good people win, then they claim voter fraud and Russia, Russia, Russia!

You can blame whoever you want, but as long as there's a system in place that gives people only a choice who will play king for the next few years nothing will change.
It's not a democracy if those who have to bear the consequences don't get to decide what course of action should be taken.
Because we believe we the people are too stupid to make good decisions.
Because we believe we the people couldn't handle the truth.



By all means move to China. You don't have the guts to be an American. You need your daily routine dictated to you minion.

It's our freedom to be critical of our own country.

Hell, it's in our founding to question authority and TPTB who seek any form of imperialism.

Doing so does not mean China is the only other option. One of the key differences between us and China is we can question the state.

I never thought Trump was more than a brash New Yorker that is rough around the edges from dealing with New Yorkers. However, he has shown us, IMO, that he told the truth on so many levels. He calls them, good or bad, how he sees it. The real problem is people like him are hard to like unless you like a person who does what they say and they really try to be fair about things when talking with others.

That is different that espousing a love for something we weren't intended to be. Slaves to the elite is not American period. Free choice is what that posts was against, and not the something something, 'Merica Sux you caught. It was YOU AND I ARE TOO STUPID and MUST be told what to do.

Is that gonna work for you?

Rand Paul was a Doctor who had a dad in Congress. The Medical Career came first.
