Just look at this angry mob of Democrats!!!
These are people who literally camped out overnight to vote in Florida.
And there wasn't even a Beyonce concert or an iPhone! release And it wasn't Black Friday, either.
Easily the most racist piece of propaganda I've seen so far this cycle, and that's really saying something. Duncan Hunter is a liar, a crook, and a coward. Looking forward to @ACampaNajjar kicking his ass.
1/ " In a DEMOCRATIC society, majority rule must be coupled with guarantees of individual human rights that, in turn, serve to protect the rights of minorities--whether ethnic, religious, or political, or simply the losers in the debate over a piece of controversial legislation.
2/ "The rights of minorities do not depend upon the goodwill of the majority and cannot be eliminated by majority vote. The rights of minorities are protected because democratic laws and institutions protect the rights of all citizens."

Thank YOU to all who are responding to my request for help.

Convicted felon and viable GOP candidate for Senate, Don Blankenship, who calls Mitch McConnell's wife's family "China people", has surged in the polls. It looks like he might be running against Manchin in November.
This is the GOP frontrunner for U.S. Senate in West Virginia.

(Over speaker. Indistinguishable garble)
