Vote Like Your Life Depends On It - Because It Does!
The Dems don’t merely want to win - they want to destroy all opposition.

First, they took over and perverted the education system from teaching basic studies into propaganda indoctrination of leftist Marxist dogma. That spread into the media-entertainment complex, pushing it so far to the left that they no longer make any pretense of being objective. Far from it - they now proudly trumpet the fact that they are a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC and the Deep State.
Take a look at the contempt they now display for old journalistic standard of "objectivity."
Jim Rutenberg infamously announced in January 2017 his profession’s proud defiance of now ossified norms in a new age in which reporters would “throw out the textbook American journalism (that) has been using for the better part of the past half-century.” Christiane Amanpour felt she was now released from the old chains of professed “objectivity.” “Much of the media was tying itself in knots trying to differentiate between balance, between objectivity, neutrality, and crucially, the truth,” she said just a few weeks after the 2016 election. “We cannot continue the old paradigm.” Univision’s Jorge Ramos more or less ridiculed classical journalistic training and embraced the liberation from the old bourgeois idea of “neutrality.” In Orwellian terms, the media has now come to adore the omnipresent progressive party line: “You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him: you must love him.” And the recent releases of Russian intercepts about the Clinton gambit to fabricate a “collusion” election narrative, (no one) has ever said “We were wrong” - because they really think they were “right” in pushing even untruth, given their hatred of Trump.

Thus it should come as no surprise that should the worst happen and the Dems lie and cheat their way to power, they have no intention of simply governing and respecting the rights and freedoms of all Americans. No - just like tyrannical regimes have done throughout history, they have plans for their enemies. And those enemies are those who love America most.
Therefore, in case you need further proof that this election is not simply the choice between freedom and tyranny - liberty or oppression - it is time to realize that it may literally come down to a choice between life and death.
If you think that’s too strong just think for a moment about what the Nazis, Bolsheviks, and Communists in China, Cuba, and Venezuela did when they took power. They had all of their “political enemies” arrested and thrown into concentration camps or prison. And right now that would put at least half of the population of the United States in imminent danger of losing not just their “Liberty,” and "pursuit of happiness," but their life itself!
Think that’s alarmist? Take a look at what former Clinton official and Democrat spokesman Robert B. Reich had to say just last week. University of California-Berkeley professor and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich proposed the radical idea for a post-election commission to censor speech, and name and shame every public figure who supported President Donald Trump's rise to power.
He wrote on Twitter over the weekend that "when this nightmare" — or Trump's presidency — "is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe."
Read plainly, it appears Reich is envisioning a committee that would oversee a massive censorship campaign of things purported to be "lies" by the president and a massive blacklist campaign of Trump supporters. Both of which sound like characteristics of dictatorial transitions of power that occur in third-world countries.In response to the tweet, several Twitter followers agreed and even raised the stakes of his proposal.
"I am thinking more of using the postwar Nuremberg Trials as a template," one Twitter user wrote, speculating that criminal trials should be in order. "Felonies were committed as were treasonous behaviors. The guilty should be arrested, tried, convicted and forced to do time." (2)
In fact, they are doing it right now.
In New Hampshire Trump supporters have found thier mailboxes stuffed with the following threats:
"Dear neighbor," the letter read. "You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election." It continued by suggesting the homeowners check their home insurance to ensure it covers fire damage. (3)
However revolted we are at the totalitarian dictatorship mindset behind these statements we shouldn’t be surprised at them. Tyrants the world over and throughout history have always relied on terror, censorship, and intimidation to extend their corruption and silence dissent.
So by now, we should have learned that when they threaten freedom, democracy, and human rights we should take them at their word - they mean it!
Thus it is incumbent upon us to make sure that we and everyone else who can be persuaded by the power of reason and love of liberty, votes… like our lives depend on it. Because they do.
