General Robert E. Lee once said that "a dead rightist is a good rightist".
The Framers gave us the 2nd Amendment so we could defend the nation from
rightist opressors, preferably killing them. A Golden Age for America.
Once the Republicans are defeated in the mid terms and Trump is indicted, the
retribution will come and rightists will be hanging by their necks from lamp
posts, dotting the landscape like potted plants. God will not protect the
rightist come Judgement Day.
