  1. The problem is that all these Republicans are afraid to be called some kind of ism or ist or many other labels the Democrats use to strike fear this is a reflection of no spine that’s why I’ve been saying the entire Republican party is spineless pathetic cowards we should never vote for any Republican that’s been in office since 2008. I mean voting for them is like voting Democrat. So they are criminals just like the Democrats in my opinion

  2. What a tricky question! Although DeSantis has been a good governor for Florida, he does not have what it takes to stand up to & come against these corrupt, demonic, satan worshipping, deep state/globalist scumbags! God placed Donald J. Trump in our midst for such a time as this! ALL the filthy deeds of these Luciferins are coming to the surface for all the world to see. DONALD TRUMP IS OUR PRESIDENT AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO BE. NOT DESANTIS!

    • Anita, great post! You’re correct, because there’s a big difference in running a State than an entire country. I also can appreciate DeSantis’ handling of the absurd ideologies and policies of the Democratic Communist Party and their complicit fake news media outlets. But, what a lot of people don’t seem to remember is that DeSantis was not always a fighter of the radical left. He learned how to fight back from the original, Donald Trump.

      I hear the anti-Trump people pushing Ron DeSantis for 2024, but in my opinion he can throw his name in the hat in 2028. As a life long conservative, President Trump is the only president who has kept the majority of his campaign promises and even more accomplished. President Trump has proven and EARNED his second term that was obviously stolen from him!

      Couldn’t agree with you more Anita!

  3. I’m reading some of the comments from women and men, who are hurtful on how they feel. We are all Americans, and because we are, each American has the right to their privacy and not be condemned. I cannot hate anybody, because of their personal choice! In judgement day, all of us will face our God, and we’ll know if he will say, you’ve done well in our life!

  4. Don’t you ever get tired of spewing your hateful talk. For all of you that continue your submission to brainwashing, there are some that actually can think for themselves. God help us all if any of you should become “King of the World’”. Trump is a thief,formicator, liar and is criminally insane – now there’s a great human being – NOT

    • Chris, you’re a radical left wing moron, emulating the same tactics as the Nazi Party straight from the ideologies from Adolph Hitler!

      Your accusations that it’s the conservatives in this site that are spewing hatred, is laughable, when the truth is they’re actually fighting back against The New Liberal World Order, which manifested by the Communists Globalist Elites! Your accusation is a common tactic of the radical left! The left accuses conservatives of the very act they’re doing.

      Moreover, your, “King of the World,” imagination is exactly what your anti-American party is all about. Your party, like the Nazi Party, wants censorship of the news media outlets and conservatives who do not agree with their ideologies and policies. They also attack Christianity, due to their strong influence that may not align with their views. The ignorant leftists twits like Chris want to disarm law abiding Americans , so they’re more easily controlled. The radical left want to control parents children at young age to brainwash them to their hatred of America. Hitler’s Nazicrat Party started the Hitler Youth, which the Dem’s now call CRT!

      Chris, you’re about as stupid as a box of rocks and sharp as a bowling ball.

  5. The Bible tells us that being Gay is an abomination to God, which means that it is a SIN, that has to be Forgiven by God when the Sinner Repents and ask God to Be Forgiven. Gods World, Gods way, No Exceptions .. Since America is Pushing God out of Everything l, things will only Get Worse. We are living in The World of the End. Read the Bible it is our B – Basic I- Instructions B -Before- L Leaving-E Earth.

  7. Now that we know the 12 republicans that are RINO’s we know what to do people. I believe in compromise but not when it is an issue that is against nature. To give power to people to sue is not right in so many way. They had the same right before the bill but now it is going to be hell for everyone that speak against there evils against children.

  8. As long as there is unlimited mail in voting Dems will never lose again. Biden is a prime example. Obama is a corrupt disease

  9. The political party affiliation of a government representative should not matter. They are all supposed to be representing all American citizens once they are put into office. We need to be united as American citizens and not divided by political affiliation, gender (only 2), ethnic background, social lifestyle choices or any other diversities between us that make us unique individuals.

  10. I though that Joni was a woman. This is what’s wrong with the GOP. They don’t stand together and with people like Romney you can see why.
