Yesterday I was somewhat stunned to learn of the citizens amassing at Lansing Michigan in protest of their Governor’s abuse of her office.
To my fellow citizens in MI – you are not alone!

I saw another one more general to this – citizens ready to reclaim ALL our rights and liberties. We need this. The nation needs this.
Sunday Gov Ralphie in VA “proudly” eliminated voter ID in the commonwealth saying “every voice in our democracy deserves to be heard” [paraphrased].
Ralphie – you are either incompetent or arrogantly pompous – take your pick. Our nation, our commonwealth is NOT A DEMOCRACY! Democracy is equivalent to MOB RULE. Ours is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC and as such we have a document to prevent tyrants such as yourself from abusing the office you were entrusted with and the citizens of this commonwealth.
WE THE CITIZENS OF VIRGINIA AND THIS NATION are poised to reclaim our birthright. Either repeal your unconscionable and illegal decrees and so-called “legislation” or face the consequences. We will no longer tolerate your abuse. We have the authority and if necessary we WILL exercise our right to dissolve this commonwealth and begin anew.
“whenever any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, inalienable, and indefeasible right to reform, alter, or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal. “
For the record – THAT is democracy!
