  1. The US governments attempts to stop citizens from reclaiming their country will surely fail as there are more patriotic Americans than criminal government lackeys


    • You are a buffoon. I went to high school with Kelly Meggs and feel sorry for that utter fool. You “reclaim” your country by voting, volunteering for candidates, etc., not by storming the US Capitol to interfere w/the certification of a US President. You may want to try reading a book about how the United States of America works. Or you should move to Russia or Saudi Arabia. You may like their system of govt. better……
