I’ve written a lot about politics. I also have quite a few friends on the Left. I’ve been told, they read what I write, because I tend to debate and not demagogue, discuss and not disparage. Yesterday, I reposted a meme that lumped the Democrats all in a group that would be fighting against Americans in the coming battle for our country.
They were not amused.
Several of them were shocked, (shocked, I tell you!) that I would have the audacity to consider those on the Left as a monolithic group that hates those of us that support Trump.

You are either part of the solution, or you’re part of the problem. It is no longer “business as usual.” I wish it were. But the DNC, the media (but I repeat myself) and their Socialist masters have screwed the pooch on that one. Pick a side. And if you don’t believe me, there’s this:
