    This needs to be stopped. NOW. The GND is and always has been a push to force people to follow a socialist way of life against our will. Americans are NOT a socialist people. The resolution has been dumbed down and sugar coated so this poison pill is easier to swallow, but it will force farmers off their farms (which I am sure Tlaib will try to use Eminent Domain to take so that they can further control the means of production) The Americans who are poor and who live in rural areas will be heavily affected and despite the racism in the resolution, you can bet there's going to be a brown bag check for aid. They specifically state they're going to focus on Indigenous and minority communities. Top this off with the fact that they intend to punish hard-working Americans for the supposed crimes of their ancestors. These people did NOTHING wrong except they were born white. To allow the implications of this resolution to go unchallenged would be a mistake. I am watching you three carefully and I will personally do everything in my power to see that your constituents know if you vote in favor of this. No, that is not a threat. It's a promise. And before you label me alt-right, I am nowhere near. I am simply sick of the fact that anti-white bigotry is allowed or even encouraged. "Repairing historic wrongs to indigenous people" is a euphemism for "Kick people off their land and give to the tribes." While I think everyone should have equality of opportunity, we all DO have that. But to punish Americans by taking their land, money, and freedom, and redistribute it as THEY see fit is NOT American. There is FAR too much ground to cover in a comment/letter to my representatives on this GND matter. The entire thing is repulsive. They are using the scare-tactics of "We're all going to die!!" to try and force socialism on the American People. If you do nothing this WILL end in civil war. Americans are the most Proud people with an unbreakable will and the thing we treasure above even our families is FREEDOM. Telling me what I can eat and what I can drive and what I can wear and say is NOT freedom. It's slavery. And I am NOT a slave.
