Comment: Whether the American electorate realizes it or not, the 2020 election provides two choices—freedom of individuals and the guarantee of their rights, or the road to the enslavement of mind and in many cases, body. The following post is well worth the entire read.
"The Looming ‘1984’ Election"

For a variety of reasons, the 2020 election is going to be a referendum beyond Donald Trump’s record and his Democratic opposition.
The furor that Trump has incurred, and the radical antithesis to his agenda and first term, have redefined the looming election. It is becoming a stark choice between a revolutionary future versus American traditionalism.
The choice in reductionist terms will be one between a growing, statist Panopticon, fueled by social media, a media-progressive nexus, and an electronic posse.
