It is evident that now, in 2019, sex reigns in the U.S.A. in the minds of many of our nation's representatives and senators. I often wonder why individuals join with like-minded people on a "power trip" to strip freedom from people they oppose.

They become "thought police," in reality saying "We're not going to allow you to believe and act the way you do because you disagree with us, and we have the ability to shut you down." Unbelievably, this is our current federal government in action.

This legislation is deceptively named "Equality Act." HR 5 has already passed in the House and is headed for the Senate.

We remember the famous statement of Patrick Henry, one of our founding fathers: "Give me liberty or give me death." If HR 5 passes, we will be a dictatorship.
