A Bit of Wisdom From Give 'Em Hell Harry

“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear." Harry S. Truman

A perfect example of this is when Trump tear-gassed peaceful protesters in front of the White House so he could have a photo-op holding a Bible upside-down in front of a church he doesn’t attend.

    Even you know that most of the thought police are on the left. You just throw tantrums whenever anyone has the gall to not agree with you :)

      Instead, many just make up their own facts.
      The idiot in chief comes to mind.

        People have the right to their opinions. Not just your opinions. The left are just thought police

          Trump keeps trying to silence the opposition, but every 5 minutes he makes another completely stupid statement or tells another blatant lie.

          It's tough, when you are your own worst enemy.

            Even if you hate Trump or merely dislike him like I do. He is about as pro free speech as it gets.

            He gets mad at the "fake news" when they censor not when they don't

              And he calls the media the enemy of the people anytime they release an unflattering story.

Truman was so correct!

So correct! The republicans continue to try to silence the democrats falsely believing everything must be the republican rich people way or the highway. Those less than rich are peons and dirt on the floor to the republicans. So wrong.
Without the peons doing their work they would be nothing.

Like how the main news media, Twitter and FB are censoring anything that might be bad publicity for the Left, and doing what they can to slander the Trump Administration.
A whistle blower, associate, and business partner, one retired Navy Lt Tony Bobulinski, who has evidence which has been handed over to the FBI, that shows Joe Biden being the "Big Guy" in their partnership worth millions, and Joe using Air Force one and his VP to further the family's bank account.
And as of right now, "Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, ripped into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, accusing him and his social media platform of improperly censoring reporting from the New York Post that reflected poorly on Joe Biden, despite not acting consistently regarding stories about President Trump"

If Biden wins, a Special Prosecutor will be investigating all of it 😁

YOU WONT SEE OR HEAR THIS ON THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA
Posted on: 2020-10-28 11:05:20   By: Anonymous
 
Former Vice President Joe Biden says he wants to “transition away” from fossil fuels if he is elected president — a move that energy experts and economists say would eliminate millions of jobs, cause gas prices to skyrocket, and wreak havoc on the economy.

The oil industry has flourished under President Donald Trump, which has led the country to energy dominance. The U.S. no longer has to rely on unstable, oil-rich countries, such as Iran, because it is leading the world in oil and natural gas production. Experts say a Biden administration would threaten national security by empowering rogue countries, like Iran, as well as insert uncertainty and instability back into the price of gas at the pump to the tune of $6 a gallon.

It's on Newsmax but most Democrats are too scared of reading real news.

        No really, not regarding oil. We won't see $6 gas for years. Why? Because of oversupply and demand. The world is swimming in oil and there's no demand. And there won't be demand until there's an economic recovery. And there won't be an economic recovery until we're past the covid crisis. 2-3 years, at least. So planes aren't flying, and people are restricting their driving. Natural gas, solar and wind are replacing oil demand in electric energy production. For all we know gas may never be $5 a gallon again. Oil is dirty, inefficient and cleaner and cheaper alternatives are replacing it. But if you prefer the psycho babble scare tactics, enjoy!

I tried a wind mill on the roof of my Toyota, it blew off and now I’m facing a million dollar lawsuit because it hit some Libtards windshield that did away with gas. I was doing max speed, 20 m.p.h., but it still blew off!

Socialism is a scare word they've hurled at every advance the people have made. Socialism is what they called public power, social security, deposit insurance, and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for anything that helps all people.

--Harry Truman, 1952
