The lemming is a small rodent found in the tundra and open grasslands of the Arctic. The story that they commit mass suicide is a centuries-old myth. But there is one species that frequently exhibits mass suicide tendencies: the Democratic Party. Today they can be observed marching around the U.S. Capitol and working to drag us into socialism.

We must remember the words of Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [the unalienable Rights of ‘Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness’], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.” A socialistic government is destructive of those ends.

We must not wait for socialism to take hold of our government. We must defeat it at every turn and every election. Socialists did not fight and win the Revolutionary War. American patriots did that. It was patriots, never socialists, who wrote these exceptional ideas in the preamble to our (not their) Constitution, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Our foes are socialists who are offended that a free and exceptional United States exists. They would destroy that freedom and enslave all of us.
