“The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing.” John Adams
We have all known and understood what the new face of the modern Democrat Party looks like, but it hasn’t been clearer than it has been in the past 14 days. The modern Democrat Party has put it all out on the table. They are holding no more cards close to the vest. I am sure that I am not alone in saying this, but this is a new low for our Country as a whole. Are we as Republicans going to let the Democrats get away with this?
I hope that the answer is no.
We need take the advice of former White House Chief of Staff for Obama, Rahm Emanuel and “never let a good crisis go to waste.” People are upset, and rightfully so. If there has even been a time that we need to unite as a party, it is now. There is an election in November. This is when our voices will be heard. We must be louder than the Democrats to win in November. If we don’t win, and the Democrats regain power, we know what we will see for the next two years: impeachments and investigations. This is not speculation; this is the platform that the Democrats are running on.
We all need to do our part. Can we count on you? Can our candidates count on you?
