    You support a party that wants to pay millionaires, yet you will never be rich. You support the elite blue bloods of the realm that actually look down on working class and middle class people. You say you love democracy, yet you refuse to accept the will of the people. You scream against abortion yet you refuse to give aid the babies after they are born. You claim to be Christ like, but you want to kill in wars of conquest. This is why your power is dwindling and you will never win because we see through your lies.
