Stopping Kamala Harris’ liberal agenda

“Dumb hick,” “ignorant,” “white trash,” “vile” —- Upon starting my campaign by launching an actual rocket with the liberal agenda into space, the left was quick to go on the attack.

I plan to be her worst nightmare when I get into the Senate.

Blacks, Gun Control, and the Second Amendment | National Review

He writes, “The real racism associated with the Second Amendment isn’t in the rights of gun ownership that the Bill of Rights cemented into the Constitution’s text. It is in the long and shameful record of those rights being denied.”
