When the signers of the Declartion of independence

Was signed.
Those men knew that it could be the end for them. They could be killed possibly their families. Any power and money they might have be taken away.
But they did it any way. To take a chance on a future government.
So now The majority of the repubs are willing to throw that chance away for their political futures worried they won’t get the vote from trumps followers
Worried that their lives or families might be in danger from those same supporters.
So they don’t have the same guts or values that the signers had. Then they don’t deserve to be in charge of our country.
They need to think this they know trump rallied his troops to do damage multiple times he did so that day they did not stop until he told them to stop.
They also need to turn and look at the fellow Republican defending t and ask themselves if that guy was in on this.

Because so many could of been killed that day and that includes them.

So that is the fight they need to fight stop it now so it doesn’t happen again because next time it might not be able to be stopped.
