“Yet the families and working people still keep voting Democrat. They will never wake up”
What’s wrong with letting the half of the country that depends on handouts vote?

“You have reached the Portland police department. Your call isn’t very important to us...”
“Your call is important to us. Please stay on the line. Average hold time 3 hours. Thank you for calling the Portland Police.”
