In the lead-up to the 2018 midterms, Trump warned supporters that if his opponents won, they would “overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently.” He added, “You’re one election away from losing everything you’ve got.”36
On a Saturday night in July a Georgia Representative stood before the crowd at a town hall in Athens to give a similar warning. “As you all know,” James Jackson said, ‘ “there exists . . . a political organization banded together by . . . one common tie—hostility to you and to your property.” Politicians, college professors, writers, poets, ministers, elites, and congressmen all were determined to dominate and destroy both the property and the culture of beleaguered southerners. They had illegally taken over the political system to destroy “the equal rights of every citizen of every State.” This political cloud “is black and ominous, and threatens to discharge its flood of fury—its storm of hail and lightening [sic] upon you at any moment.” It had to be stopped, he said, “or your peace is at an end—your property destroyed—your land now blooming like a garden, left desolate as a desert.” The government’s role was to protect life, liberty, and property, and the minute that protection for private property fell into doubt because of regulations or restrictions, allegiance to that government should end.
Jackson was speaking in 1860, warning his listeners what would happen if “black Republicans” reined in the institution of human slavery and gave rights to African Americans. The politician he stood against was Abraham Lincoln. When Lincoln won in 1860, men like Jackson would make good their threats to take their cause to the battlefields, unwilling to continue in a Union that yoked them to “Socialists, Communists and Abolitionists.”38
Three years later, in the midst of the carnage that would take more than 600,000 lives, Lincoln would attempt to destroy the oligarchic principles of the Confederacy once and for all. He rededicated the nation to the principles of the Declaration of Independence, and called for Americans to “highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

The Rich Elect; The Poor Vote.
“Whenever someone starts quoting the bible, I know they’re full of shit. People only bring out that goddammed thing when they want to justify immoral behavior."

"You sound like a fuckin' Hemingway."
"Fuck you, asshole."

Don't forget to update your inflatable Trumps to reflect Twitter banning the raging baby.
