Punish the russian and belarussian governments and military leaders in every way possible. Demand our government support Ukraine to win.
Stop supporting china's communist totalitarian system that enabled and approved russia's unprovoked invasion. Every dollar you spend on chinese products funds the communist's goals of world domination, repression of human rights, and our own prosperity.
If you believe the cure for Fascism is to emulate Hitler, the cure for racism is to use more racism, or the cure for poverty is to eliminate prosperity, you are wrong. If you trade with entities that abuse and threaten others then you share responsibility.
The reign of dictators, kleptocrats, and "social" totalitarianists is over. Everywhere. Now.
FREEDOM, SECURITY, PROSPERITY - for ALL.
