is what a Commander In Chief SHOULD sound like.
Before mentioning the National Rifle Association or even firearms at the gun rights group’s annual meeting in Nashville on Friday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, asked all the men and women in the audience who serve or have served in the armed forces to stand so they could be properly thanked.
“Freedom. Endowed by our Creator. Defined by our Constitution, but defended each and every day by the men and women who proudly wear the uniform of these United States,” Walker began.
He then asked anyone who is serving or has served in the military to stand and be recognized. Predictably, the audience immediately erupted in applause.
The governor said he carries patches with him every day to remind him of the men and women from the National Guard units in Wisconsin that are still deployed today.
“Freedom. Endowed by our Creator. Defined by our Constitution, but defended each and every day by the men and women who proudly wear the uniform of these United States,” That one sentence perfectly encapsulates what patriots understand, and have understood, at an instinctual level. And what the Prognazis detest. Granted by God, not the almighty government, codified by the Constitution, thereby restricting their statist desires, and defended by men far better than the leftists could ever hope to be. And also note the proper terminology of these United States, plural. A collection of sovereign governments united together, not subservient functionaries of the federal behemoth.
We have a fine crop of young, intelligent, and passionate conservatives coming up through the ranks. Now to hand the reigns of the party over to them and put the rinos out to pasture.
