We are currently seeing unrest around the world. Seeing unrest in countries you never would imagine. Our brothers and sisters to our north Canada. They arenít refugees, terrorist, just regular people trying to do the right thing. Letting there government know they are tired, frustrated. Want there freedoms back they had prior to this pandemic. My grandparents parents fled oppression. To live free. When the government refuses to listen to you, know whatís best for you. And mandates you. All in the name of doing whatís best for everyone. You are no longer free. Oppression comes in little bits at a time. Like cancer. Pretty soon you are consumed with it. You have 2 choices IMO. Fight or let it take you. You may not succeed in the fight. But I personally would rather fight. You may not win. But at least you tried.

That's one of the problems in today's world. No one likes a warrior until the enemy is at the gate. Then it may be too late.

I heard something the other day , said by Kershaw a Historian who studdied the Nazi's

Kershaw made the notable claim that "the road to Auschwitz was built by hate, but paved with indifference." By this, Kershaw meant the progress leading up to Auschwitz was motivated by antisemitism of the most vicious kind held by the Nazi elite, but it took place in a context where the majority of German public opinion was completely indifferent to what was happening.

we are at a very similar place where the ruling Elite have a disdain for the working class , they have a disdain for well everyone they feel is below them but they say they things they know people want to hear to buy their vote.

you can hear this when Trudeau speaks , you hear it when he talks to the people of the capitol city , it is almost like lines from the Hunger games movie , where they have oppressed the other districts for decades but still see them selves as victims.
you're hearing it from Biden and his people if you listen.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Spot on fellas. Listen to how our politicians speak openly about fellow Americans. Hillary Clinton called Americans deplorables. Openly spoke it. John Kasick Ohio Past Governor spoke openly how people need to be governed. Some arenít Kingsley enough to be in charge. The road to (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman). Was paved with good intentions.

Government becomes illegitimate when enough people say it's so. Asking a tyrant to stand down never seems to work out.

The people that fight get singled out and called extremists or terrorists by the left wing media that spins the truth and the masses believe it.

With a brainwashed society with government approved education, it was pretty easy here in America to get where we are.

Been chipping away at our freedom for years. Kind of like a frog in a pan of water and the heat just gradually turned up until it cooks. We are almost cooked and 50% of the people in this country are asleep at the wheel.

Kind of why I hope the left is called the winners in the next few elections. They will keep pushing and make enough people will wake up and have enough.

If the right wins they will back off just a little and people will go back to sleep.

So as of today. They are using tear gas to clear the bridge between MI and Canada. Biden and Trudeau spoke last night. This could of been resolved so easily. If the Prime Minister and other elected officials went out to the protests and listened. Ask yourself this ? Doesnít it seem strange our elected officials fly all over the world to listen to concerns of other countries. But wonít interact with there own citizens. Frightening and enlightening all at the same time.

Wife ask what I was doing. I replied we are going to church. Boys got ready and jumped in the truck with us and we went to church. We were the only ones there Sunday after Sunday. NO one tells me I canít go to church No one. I thought it was very important to show the boys we are free men. If you want me to wear something to shop in your store I go elsewhere. If you want me to take something I donít want. I wonít. Iím free


Everything the left touches it destroys

Good for you! It's refreshing to see there are some people willing to take a stand. If everyone did this we could get somewhere.
