1. Call "speaker" Ryan's and any "Republican" office you can and leave a stinking message

These supposed "representatives" of ours need to be inundated by calls and action from us.

Ryan: (202) 225-0600

This is insane. Tillers speaks out against Russia and in support of UK and this is what happens. It is so blatantly obvious what is going on here... We need to throw the bastards who are letting our country be taken over by Russia OUT!

The important passage from the Declaration of Independence is:

"...all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

The time for abolition of the dumpster's administration is NOW! We can't wait any longer. They (meaning Russians and the dumpster crime family) stole the election. Hillary was the rightful winner. They didn't just steal the presidency either. They stole key seats in Congress also.
