The men and women of law enforcement are the new blue-ribbon endorsement that most politicians will need to be successful.

With the arsonists and other violent criminals ripping up the lives and property of average Americans, most people are awakening to the brutal realities of a lawless society. Your life and the lives of your friends and neighbors will never be the same again after a gang of marauding vandals rolls through your community.

The only thing standing in the way of the destruction of people and property are police officers. The only thing keeping convicted criminals behind bars and away from their potential victims are corrections officers. Today, the left-wing activists are determined to defund police departments and abolish prisons. They literally want to open the gates, release convicted criminals, and make sure there are no police officers to prevent the wants and desires of the criminal class in America.

Thankfully, the people in law enforcement are feeling appreciated by the “silent majority” that has decided it isn’t safe to be silent any longer. All over our great country, there are grassroots movements to stand up for the police officers who stand up for our great country.

It doesn’t matter what the anti-police politicians say because they have lost the argument and they have lost the trust of the people – and one by one, many of them will be losing their power.

The people of America trust their local police and they are listening to what their friends and family who are in law enforcement have to say about candidates for office.
