Well said mate. Four hundred years of capitalism has given Americans a culture where a good salesperson can convince you that you aren't wearing any pants.

Side: Yes

"Today, I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the national guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets.

Mayors and Governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled.

If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents,

then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them."

The words used are clearly not a present decleration of "martial law". You have intentionally used a future tense wording and pretended that it's a present tense wording, even though it was projecting a possible future ultimatum. This is a tactic typical of dishonest people.

So, just his intent to use martial law in the future if he disagrees with how states police themselves, right?

NO! He declared himself a DICTATOR who has no use for our Constitution! Hopefully, those with some common sense will get control of our "Dear Leader" ... our PUTIN!

I understand he called ol' Put'. Likely he got some advice on how to run a dictatorship from the great one.

When Republican governors imposed restrictions in their states, was that "the left"?

Did the Federal Government do that? No, the states did it. (closed the park) With GOOD reason ... to protect those kids from a deadly park!

Funny how so many conservatives say the states should run things, and when they DO, they criticize. What cons actually want is state governments that follow a "Dear Leader" with a tiny group of strong-armed oligarchs that hold all of the power ... and most of the money ... while the states keep control of the people and Dear Leader can do photo-ops of kindness. When the states struggle with their appointed duties, he does photo-ops of toughness. At NO time does he do photo-ops of compassion and understanding .... unless it's for the good people on the other side ... HIS White Nationalist side!

He is supposed to be the President for ALL of the people. He HAS to blame the ones who ARE to blame on BOTH sides, and show compassion for those who are fighting the GOOD fight. The (d)emocratic fight.

Side: Yes
