Over the past few years, we have seen the social media and internet giants censor conservatives and Christians.
In some cases, the censorship is reminiscent of censorship the British tried to impose on the American colonists.
It also resembles the censorship and book burning by Nazi Germany (Google and Amazon have tried to take action against some conservative books and materials such as the sale of firearms).

Trump can call for free speech protections for online postings, but with Democrats in control of the House, no bill will ever pass.
If Trump uses an executive order, some leftist judge will block it.
I firmly believe that there are only two things that can save America and our rights.
First is a total reformation to sweep the nation and bring the people and government back to God.
Second, short of a reformation, is rebellion leading to a revolution where conservatives fight to win our country back from the grasp of those who are intent on destroying our nation.
