Oh the irony.... For 4 years all we heard about from the frothing-at-the-mouth lefties and the main stream media was how Trump was going to act like a dictator, Trump wanted to be a dictator, etc...

And yet when Trump granted the governors a wide latitude on how to deal with the pandemic in each of their individual states, low and behold it was a bunch of blue governors (Walz, Whitmer, Newsom, et al) who took that ball and RAN with it, acting PRECISELY like dictators and it was a number of red state governors (DeSantis, Noem, et al) who took a different tact and balanced the science, the data, and the will of the people when it came to how best address the situation.

With the Dems controlling the WH, Senate and House, just which way do you think this thing is going to start going? How soon before we are a completely socialist country?

Also, if you think that Biden and the Dems are going to usher in socialism and authoritarianism, shouldn't you lead an armed revolution? I mean, I've been told repeatedly that we can't infringe on 2nd amendment rights because we need guns to overthrow an authoritarian government.

So which is it:

a) You don't ACTUALLY believe that autocracy and socialism are coming
b) You don't ACTUALLY believe that citizens can/would/should use small arms to overthrow the government

Has to be one of the two.

Probably a smart move; I wouldn't address the stark contrast in how various governors handled their brief chance at supreme autocratic power either.

You didn't ask me to do that. You asked me to tell you when we'd become a completely socialist country. I told you. It's never.

I did, however, make a specific ask of you, and you dodged it neatly.
