The Theocratic Monarchy Bullet that Grazed the USA

If this seems inconceivable to you, simply look at what Trump did to religious “freedom,” bail outs of big corps, pandemic non-response, public school, postal service, and promised to do to Social Security & Medicare but never making a federal health care plan to replace ACA.— Lamb’s Harbinger (@LambsHarbinger) December 14, 2020 Paleo-Conservatism is what …
