There are many millions who feel just like we do.

I will vote in November if I have to crawl to do it.

Fortunately You now have a Democratic Governor and I have a Christian Republican who allowed an all Mail in vote in the Primary that went smoothly.

in the very questionable event that biden can defeat this stable genius we have our work cut out for us, no money, a ruined economy, a deplorable insurgency, and a pandemic.

Far too many people take liberal government for granted.

think that the Trump government is far too liberal.

I believe that the root of the problem is based upon racism, hate and frustration.

What they want is an America of the white people, by the white people and for the white people and they are willing to sacrifice everything to attain it. They believe that they have been held back from their full potential because too many people get free stuff, that they are paying for. If they can get rid of the minorities and the liberals that support them, they will be free for the first time, with the government that they believe the founders intended for them. They blame all of their personal failures on what ever minority group that is handy. These people are losers of the first order.

The videos we are seeing of the tiny minority of the vocal "open up" protesters is a great recruiting tools for the losers. Because the protesters are not seeing counter protests, they think that they represent the overwhelming majority of Americans. In my state, Florida, there was an "open Florida" rally at the state capitol that was attended by around 50 people our of a state of 20,000,000; .0000025 of our population. This rally was a regional news lead complete with video. If the coverage had been balanced it may have entered the news like this: In Tallahassee today, a handful of protesters showed up at the capitol to protest social distancing. and that would have been in the local news and without video, and in the local section of the news paper.

Personally, I am unwilling to give up the America that I love to a tiny minority of loudmouthed gun toting bullies.
