Quote of the Day

“In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them…. I destroy them.”
― Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game

This is why we must (a) love our enemies and (b) understand what makes them tick.  Until then, we can never destroy those who hate us and our country.

    BTW, I understand them well enough to skip the love stuff and go straight to appropriate action.
    We know what they want….a socialist/communist country with open borders.
    They believe they are going to accomplish their goal of destroying the US Constitution by abusing the freedoms it includes.
    Hopefully the new A.G. Jeff Sessions will take the necessary steps to secure our streets before the heavily armed among us do it.
