  • Unfortunately, Like yourself. Ideas and ideologies from the Left and Democrats are literally unsustainable for our society it will never ever work to keep our country the way it has been and what we have stood for throughout history. Our Declaration of Independence the Constitution what we have fought for in the past to be able to have the rights and freedoms that we have today in the society for everyone no matter left or right to express their own ideas and ideologies no matter right or wrong and who determines/declares those ideologies right or wrong. They are still open for discussion. But to keep the freedoms of our nation and our ability to continue to be the best Nation that we have been up to this point and enjoy the freedoms we all cherish. We need to keep those types of ideologies that will negatively affect our nation from moving forward and continuing to be the greatest country that there has ever been. Bottom line yes. We have our freedoms. We have our constitution. We have our Declaration of independence. Those are the things that our country was founded upon. And in short. If this is a country that you no longer want to be a part of with those instruments in place in order for the United States of America to continue to be the greatest country in this world. Then yes, you do have the ability to say no, this is not something I want to be a part of. You have the right to say these are not the beliefs I have. And if this is not something that you can live with. Then that is also your right as an American to freely leave this country. You have the right to go to another country which will welcome you and that are founded on your types of beliefs and ideologies that will welcome your beliefs and ideologies and they will welcome you with open arms. You will feel at home if these are truly the beliefs and ideologies that you personally feel would better represent the way you would like the society that you live in to function. So please, enact you're right to be free and to go where you want to go where to a country that will welcome you and your ideologies. Just please. Do not continue to live in a society that was founded on our constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration Of Independence which gives all of us the right to fight against tyranny against those that opposed our beliefs in which the United States were founded upon. (KEY WORDS BEING, IN WHICH WE WERE FOUNDED UPON) Obviously, if you DO NOT have the beliefs then it also gives you the right as stated to leave this country. Being an American citizen means exactly that. There is a reason why you are an American citizen. Citizenship means in believing in what your country stands for and you will uphold those beliefs that you had sworn to uphold as a citizen. When people are citizens of this great country you take on an oath. Which means exactly that. Just as all politicians. You as citizens take on an oath to defend our country's Constitution and Bill of Rights and to adhere to them. And yes, you are allowed by all rights to disagree. But you cannot be so far to the left in which your beliefs and ideologies change or go against our constitution to become something America does not stand for which is Socialism, Communism or Marxism just to fulfill your own ideologies, beliefs or agenda. Again, there are countries that will welcome you with open arms. We encourage you to be as happy and free as you like in whatever type of society you choose. Obviously, you are here now enjoying the freedoms that our country has afforded to you. Remember. You came to the United States of America for a reason. Looks like you have done pretty well for yourself since coming here. Why? Because we allowed you to enjoy the freedoms you have had up to this point to get you to where you are now. You have it better than the majority of Americans and your viewers currently do. So, stop bashing our current leaders and administration as they too have allowed you to flourish in the greatest economy in the history of America for over the past 3 years. Never once have you ever pointed that out to your viewers or anyone to that matter. But then. Why would you? You are simply part of the problem and its time for you to leave because America is such a horrible place to live according to your ideologies and belief system.

  • Stocks, Forex, and dividends market is constantly evolving with new features, market fluctuations, trading opportunities. You can make great profits fast but trading without experience and the right strategy for the particular market you can lose them even faster. Another thing is your risk management plan. Even if your winning system and trading psychology is good, lack of risk management skills will make you give back all your profits at some point. That's why it's always advisable to work with a professional and registered trader, I work with Mr taylor who has taught me how to capitalize on the stock market trends and his trading signals and strategies have actually proven to bring out best results with his knowledge and experience from stock trading, I'm always grateful because it has actually been helpful to me financially. So far I have made reasonable profits learning how to trade better through him. I recommend him, don't forget that as some are losing in the financial market, others are capitalizing and winning. You all can reach out to him through morgantaylor587@gmail.com or on WhatsApp +1 409 299 3921

  • I think things have gotten better in some ways but not in all ways. I am happy for his son. I have had talks with my daughter that is 15 now and when she was at school she had said they don't have bullying there. There are only a few black kids and they are treated equally which is awesome. We have had zoom meetings at work and a man who is mixed black and white said how he was bullied as a kid by both races but now his kids that are mixed the same as him are treated as equals. These examples of how people have changed give me hope that one day the people that are not racist will rise above the people that are racist. Have a great week everyone!

So, Whenever You & Yours Realize This VERIFIABLE FACT, Ta-Nehisi, Then Feel Free To Visit With Any MEMBER OF WE THE PEOPLE’S ALLIANCE Of 🇺🇸 Or 🌏 To Find Out How To PARTICIPATE In Bringing That About. 👍 💃🏽

  • It just goes to show the degree which movies and books differ is so wide. It can practically add something new that even the author is like "Well I didn't think about that when I wrote it" or it could not necessarily match the source material but this one did the first part. Adding dimensions to it.

Everything that you see effects race always affects men more. . it fare more common for a man kicked on the street by his wife. Paying alimony and child support to endanger the health & Live of the man then for pregnancy or child birth to endanger the life or health of the woman. But comparing 18 years to 9, months or until viability outside.. Or if less restrictions early . Is a false equivalence to only 18years
