If I see no protests of a magnitude such that the MSM can't ignore them, I will finally have to concede that the American spirit is broken.
The WORLD needs to know that Americans have never stood for this Orwellian pseudo-fascism, and we DO NOT stand for it now.
I don't know what I am going to do that can help reverse this horrendous trend.... so don't bother asking.... but damnit..., I am an American in my

There is something ethically wrong here.
