A mark of a truly strong democracy is that the president will agree to peacefully transfer power to an opposition party, even when he only lost the election due to massive fraud.
Another serious indicator that your democracy is hitting high notes of vibrancy is that people get arrested for praying.
A “psalm sing” attended by more than 150 people Wednesday in the Moscow City Hall parking lot led to three arrests, including that of Latah County commission candidate Gabriel Rench.
Rench, a Moscow Republican running against incumbent Moscow Democrat Tom Lamar in November’s election, was one of five people cited by Moscow police for suspicion of being in violation of Moscow’s mask/social distancing order, according to Moscow Police Chief James Fry.
Of the five cited, two also were arrested for suspicion of resisting or obstructing an officer. The fifth, Rench, was arrested but not charged with allegedly refusing to identify himself to police, according to Fry.
Fry said the officer who arrested Rench knew who he was but that Rench refused to provide his identification after the officer requested it.
Fry said none of the five cited were wearing masks or social distancing.
That’s democracy freedom, buddy. Men died in wars so you could get arrested for praying. This is the freest country on earth, and every day our democracy grows stronger and stronger.

If you don’t like getting arrested for praying, then move to Russia, you freedom-hating scum.
The five mask order citations were the first given by Moscow police, Fry said. The mask order took effect in early July and states face coverings must be worn in indoor and outdoor public settings where 6-foot social distancing cannot be maintained with nonhousehold members.
Those who violate the order are subject to a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum punishment of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Fry said officers preach community policing, “but at some point in time you have to enforce.”
He said the department has been “very lenient” on enforcing the order and officers have tried to work with every group to prevent incidents like Wednesday’s from happening.
You see, they had to be arrested for praying because of the deadly coronavirus, which as already killed 200 trillion Americans.
That proves the strength of our democracy.
This democracy is so vigorous, it’s clearly time to take it on the road.
For the sake of human rights, I’m thinking the next stop on the democracy world tour should be Belarus.

In Belarus, not only do they not arrest people for praying, they don’t even have mask laws. Belarusians do not have the freedom to get arrested for not wearing a mask. Belarusians yearn for the democracy-freedom to be arrested for not wearing a mask.
Belarus is so utterly devoid of freedom that they didn’t even do a lockdown.
Their leader is pure evil – he wants to destroy democracy, out of virulent hatred for freedom.
They need to have the smooth flavor of American style freedom, which again, means getting arrested for praying.
Mike Pompeo will deliver freedom to Belarus like R. Kelly delivered love to underage teens – in a warm, golden stream.
