Just a little disclaimer first. Yes, Patrice and I are selling our house. And yes, we'd love to have one of our readers buy it. But despite the headline above, the story I'm highlighting below isn't really about our selling. They're about you starting to think long and hard about getting out of Dodge while you can. Trump isn't your savior. He's just holding back the tide and giving you time. But he can't do it forever. And when he leaves office, the pendulum is going to swing hard. So, if N. Idaho isn't your cup of tea, that's O.K. There are a lot of other places where like-minded folk can find neighbors and friends who will stand together in the face of the coming storm. But if you're not there, you won't make it.
And now, a new reason why you should ...buy my house!
I don't know if this woman has a chance. Used to be I'd say not a snowballs chance. But...AOC, Ilhan Abdullahi Omar and Rashida Tlaib have convinced me that being 'openly socialist' and 'militantly Islamic' have become career enhancers in some parts of these Divided States. And being socialist or Islamic means that it is impossible to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.
The oath of office for a Congress person goes as follows:
The Congressional Oath of Office:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
This means that the congress-critters mentioned above and a large majority of their fellows are liars and oath-breakers. They are forsworn. They deserve nothing but contempt.
If you live in and around New York, Minnesota, Michigan or Massachusetts one of these members of 'the squad' is supposed to represent you. And if it's not one of them, there's still a good chance that your representative is every bit as evil. You're not going to change your State.
Change your location. Soon.
