“It isn’t black vs white. It isn’t left vs right. It isn’t red vs blue. It’s State vs you”

“It’s not red versus blue. It’s the state versus you” (or “It’s not red vs. blue. It’s the state vs. you”) is an anti-government saying. The saying means that the problem is not red (Republicans) or Democrats (blue), but government itself.
   
“Republicans vs Democrats will be the end of the end of this country as we know it. Everyone is so busy fighting over red/blue or black/white that you can’t even realize that it’s actually

We’re hearing unconfirmed reports that gas lines to the Third Precinct have been cut and other explosive materials are in the building.
If you are near the building, for your safety, PLEASE RETREAT in the event the building explodes.

Much of the government spending that caused current inflation occurred during the Trump administration.

I know we’ve talked about 1984 as if it’s a real prophecy…but without the context from animal farm you’re just a conspiracy theorist. People…wake the f up. It’s not a red or blue issue it’s the state versus you. And you’re losing…bigly

Left and right aren’t the only positions on the political spectrum.
You can support ending the drug war without being a leftist. And you can support free markets without being on the right.
Don’t feel the need to pick between two authoritarian sides; choose liberty.

The inflation has always been a house of cards…the issue isn’t blue vs red policies…it’s the state versus you. The central bank controls that…not the government. Stimulus didn’t help…but 31T in debt is the real issue.
