    What can we do as true Americans to stop all this evil vs good? Christians in America need to stand up and stop letting foreigners tell us how to run our Country! All Christians I’m sure feel the same, is there something we can do as a whole to show these people who are trying to change America to fit non Americans, we will not stand by and let this happen?!? America was and should still be based on God!!

      Will Ms. Haley run for President in 2024? There will be a power vacuum after President Trump that the Dems and Socialists will be more than happy to fill. We need strong borders and a system that educates Americans on what socialism is and what it would do to average Americans.

    I don’t know why the Republican Party nationally opposes common sense gun control measures, such as universal background checks and banning purchase of assault type weapons. Individuals can still own hunting rifles and hand guns. I favor allowing hand carry for responsible citizens. I hope Nikki Haley speaks out on this issue.

    I personally believe unless we Americans, 100,00, march on DC waving our Americans flag like Hong Kong nothing will happen. We can talk all we want but it’s going to take hard, long action.
