    DOES THIS LOOK LIKE, SMELL LIKE, SOUND LIKE THE BOLSHEVIK REVOLUTION?

    WHERE IS THE GOVERNMENT WE ARE PAYING FOR TO PROTECT OUR LIVES, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS? SHELTERING IN PLACE EATING ICE CREAM! SENDING PORNO PICS ON THE SEXT MESSAGES! FONDLING YOUNG CHILDREN IN THEIR BASEMENT!

    WAKE UP AMERICA, WE ARE LOOSING OUR COUNTRY AND THE BILL OF GOODS WE SWORE TO PROTECT, SO HELP US GOD.
