CHILDREN OF THE SCORN

CHILDREN OF THE SCORN “The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.” […]

His rallies are regularly attended by sold-out crowds of thousands of people, when his political opponents, […]

THE CONVOLUTED PRETZEL LOGIC OF THE LEFT

Democrats and other criminals are killing other Democrats and others, including illegals, in Democrat-run cities, using illegal guns illegally in gun-free zones, where only criminals have guns.
