What do you say to those who block Republican communication to their spouse?

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: An anti-Trump says “Your everyday Republican has some galling views.” According to my critics/opponents, not only does everyone have the right to punish me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, everyone should punish me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. They especially want the following to punish me: a) Milton Township Republican Central Committee, b) DuPage County Republican Central Committee, c) Illinois Republican Party, d) all the Republican officials who represent my precinct, Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois, e) TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, f) Wheaton Chamber of Commerce, g) Illinois Center Right Coalition, h) American Association of Political Consultants, i) etc.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The views of rank-and-file Republicans, captured in voter surveys, are nothing less than galling. Let’s lead with a poll conducted by the global marketing firm Ipsos and reported by the Daily Beast. It found that 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” When asked if President Trump should shut down The Post, CNN and the New York Times, 23 percent of Republicans said yes. These findings are obviously troubling to me as a member of the Fourth Estate. But in the Trump era, assaults on the media come with the territory. More disturbing to me as a citizen is that those Trump cultists would knowingly and willingly give him the power to trample on the First Amendment, destroying an essential part of our democracy that he doesn’t like. That is appalling. They either don’t know or care about what Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black wrote in New York Times Co. v. United States in 1971: The Founding Fathers intended that “the press was to serve the governed, not the governors.”)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps use Trump to promote hatred against those who are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.
