I am speaking out against the threat to  American democracy and oppression because I love being an American citizen. I respect and honor the liberties of being in America. It is hard to stay silent when people are protesting against the injustice of race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status,  while being arrested, tear-gas, threatened, bullied, and harassed because those in power do not agree with the protest. It is hard to stay silent and be a witness to oppression. We, the people as a country is better than this oppression and bullying. We, the people, welcome any protest against any system, which is the foundation of this country. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people."

I am encouraged by the number of folks in Portland willing to fight back.

If the not for the pandemic, many more would join them, I am sure.

A government that gasses mothers, fathers, the Mayor and peaceful protesters, is one that no longer serves the needs of its people, and reminds us to to reread the Declaration of Independence; When, over the course of time....

Folks, we currently live in a "craphole" country, under a government that is acting against its own citizens.

I believe John Adams took up against British rule for the exact same reasons.
