There are times in our history when we are forced to fight. Fight for our freedom, justice, and democracy. Our country is moving toward a political dictatorship. We are coming under the increasingly methodical control of a madman and his corrupt conspirators. We are going to fight NOT out of hate for Donald Trump and his corrupt regime. WE are going to fight for love of our country, our loyalty to the United States Constitution, and the democratic values we have fought for and died for over the last 250 years.
We are losing our country. Our government is in chaos. The time to FIGHT is now!
IMPEACH TRUMP!
