  1. All of these people were somehow taken in. How was that done? We really need to find out how they became convinced, entranced, hypnotized or whatever happened here. Did they listen to Limbaugh or a constant barrage of subliminal messaging? Were they raised to believe that they are Christians without having a clue to what the Bible says so they joined alternate religions? Was there some intent of control by outside forces these people were not aware of. The devotion to Trump seems indicative of some sort of mass hypnotism. The infiltration of these sorts of forces into our country is probably more than deliberate and we are all victims of it. We need to start asking who had the ability to do this and how, why and to what extent. Someone has a major agenda to start a race war and to ruin this country. Don’t you want to know if there is truth in this? It isn’t a conspiracy theory when you look at the numbers and the effects. Was this part of an old KGB operation taken forward using technology and messaging? Who has been complicit? Obviously some of the major politicians have been involved in subversion.


  2. Teresa, did you just try to assign blame on Republicans, Christianity, or Conspiracy? You, ma’am, have been hiding too long in your little bubble. These criminal types, almost 100% liberal non-Christians, plague every major city. The problem is simple and is rooted in early childhood. It is the lack of morals/values from their parents, absence in pride in God and Country, the everyone gets a trophy group, and the failure to fail students “because they have it rough at home”….that is what perpetuates this sort of human being being prevalent in today’s society. We are just now seeing these of the “time out/do not spank” generation grow up. It’s time we get back to raising our kids with a switch in hand, learning how to deal with and overcome failure, and how strong character and discipline will get you far in life.
