Left around the world = corruption, fraud, death
Who cares? American politicians buy votes every day.

They just can't accept that those who have lived in socialist/communist crap holes, never want to again.
Stupid USA in allowing illegals crossing our borders....
we dont need any more blinded leftist fools in this nation contributing to the homegrown whack jobs already corrupted.
"Left around the world = corruption, fraud, death"
And people support it.
It is about Power
