How Middle America Is to Be Dispossessed ~ VIDEO

Opinion USA – -(Ammoland.com)- In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College.

In the Golden State, Dem...

Or does that not sound more like a plea, a wistful hope, rather than a deep conviction? For Biden surely had in mind the debate that exploded in the House Democratic caucu...
