What should you do when they lied to you at least these 25 times already???????????
I don't know that these issues can be corrected at the national level. Groups like Convention Of States seem like a good way to go to pull the reigns back on the federal government. Of course, they get canceled and blocked at every turn: the federal power structure has unlimited resources to spend on making sure COS don't get too far with their plans. Maybe the best thing to do is circle the wagons up on a local basis. There are strong secession movements in Hawaii, Texas, parts of Washington and Oregon, maybe others.

I assume that your avi means you are in Vermont.
If so, we have something in common.

My local public high school, James Madison High, produced several Liberal icons.
...Ruth Bader-Ginsburg, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders.

I don't know if Marxism is in the water here in Brooklyn....but somehow, it ended up with Bernie in your neck of the woods.


Apologies.

Don't get me started about Sanders. We used to be a mostly conservative state before his organization took root. Burlington still hasn't recovered from when he was mayor there, now it teeters on one failed socialist agenda one after the other. Of course the local news stations glorify Sanders, he gets all the free air time he wants.

Sanders is likely the single most conservative candidates out there.
Socialism is always conservative when it comes to things like fiscal responsibility.
I never lived anywhere Bernie was running, but WI was always socialist and had the lowest government spending.
For example, the transit buses, school buses, and garbage trucks were all municipal, so they could switch drivers or vehicles as needed. The garbage trucks did double duty as street snow plows.
Very fiscally conservative.
Anti war as well.

President Jimmie Carter tried to force the metric system on America but it didn't really work. Speed signs and distances were marked in metric and American cars had a metric speedometer indication. Democrat Carter assumed that Americans were ready to dump their culture and adopt an international outlook. He was wrong and in a couple of years U.S. speed limit signs went back to the old system.

I hate to politicize math and science, but it was sad. I think most people would have gone along with the international metric system. It just needed another decade of slow but steady changes. They still teach metric system in school, I believe.

You know, it isn't necessary for you to prove yourself a complete imbecile on a daily basis.

Readers have memories.

In case you get into one of those trivia contests....

A 102 kilometer (63-mile) stretch of highway in from Tucson, Arizona to Nogales near the Mexican border is the only metric highway in the United States. Known as Interstate 19, sign distances are provided in meters and kilometers instead of in miles.Nov 1, 2020

Tell me about that stollen election….


I would point out the irregularities but you'd just ignore them and go about your merry elitist way. Because truthfully that is a tenet and core of socialism.


Oh and it's stolen. Jesus learn to spell.

Why do you use so many question marks????




And why is your spacing so spastic?
And why are there different font sizes all over your posts?

All the above make you sound like an overemotional hot mess. Are you trying to be taken seriously?
Lol. Claims the anti American. Don't matter how she lays out the facts. They are still facts ...moron.

No shit sherlock. Facts are facts and lies are lies no matter how they are presented. That has nothing to do with my post to her.
