Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana has a way of getting right to the heart of the matter and saying things in a simple way. One of the things I have heard him say before and also recently is that the “republicans are not perfect but the other side is crazy.”
In his criticism of the latest democrat spending bill, he said, “It is a special kind of stupid to raise taxes on businesses during a recession” and went on to say, “I don’t think Senator Manchin intentionally wants to hurt people. I don’t think he wants more Americans to live in a tent behind Whataburger, but that is going to be the result of his bill.”
In discussing the 87K new IRS agents that will go after the middle class, he scoffed at Biden who said the IRS will target the wealthy and not lower-class earners. Kennedy said, “With respect, if he believes that, he also believes in the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny and that Jimmy Hoffa died of natural causes…”
Kennedy understands the lies evil that are behind the democrat party’s agenda and policies every bit as our Founding Fathers did when they warned us that our destruction was likely to come from within our own country.
With the democratic party focusing solely on retaining their power and wealth, we are on a trajectory that will bring about the end of this Great American Experiment. What we don’t know is how fast it will come. As Ben Franklin said, we have a republic “if you can keep it.”
Ben Franklin also said, “I agree to this Constitution … and I believe, further, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other.”
According to the National Center for Constitutional Studies, we have had some major departures from the original philosophy, principles and intent of the Founding Fathers including increasing centralization of authority in the national government; eroding of principles of separation of powers; departure from the basic values to which the founders subscribed; destruction of the founders’ monetary system based on a money with intrinsic value; and the loss of citizen understanding of constitutional principles and the philosophy underlying them.
All of the things noted above are a result of the democratic party’s policies and in order to save our republic and keep it strong, we have to remain constantly vigilant against them and find patriotic, fair and just men and women who will push back against them.
Ben Franklin believed that we can’t be free if the people (and those who represent them) become wicked and immoral. The people will want a police state if we fear for our lives and property – and the democrats are making sure we are moving in that direction.
John Adams also said we need virtuous people to make the Constitution function. He said: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
And then there is George Washington who, like Senator John Kennedy, can get right to the point with only a few words. He said, “Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.”
