  1. She’ll make a great Governor. We can’t beat the direction our country is going, sadly. But we can at least keep Arkansas socialist free. Our Governor And our two Senators must remain Patriot Republicans. Our country has no legally elected President, so we have to govern and live within our own secure borders. Pray for what’s left of Amerika.
