The day has arrived. And if you're in your car right now, or haven't voted yet, here's a little encouragement from Lindsey Graham, an unexpected hero in the hurricane-like nightmare that has been the last six months.
Yesterday during an appearance on Fox & Friends, Senator Graham offered yet another rallying cry to guide us through the storm. When host Brian Kilmeade asked Graham "What is your message going forward?" he replied:
Graham: Senators that were against Kavanaugh deserve to lose youtu.be
Powerful words. Words worth remembering. Because it's easy, in the chaos of the media's predictions and outrage, to forget that there is a correct way to respond. A democratic way.
While leftists have made a show of their feelings, their unbridled outrage, we have to remember that the democratic response, the truly meaningful way to respond, is by voting. Linda Sarsour and her gang of provocateurs can interrupt a hundred more Supreme Court nomination hearings, and they will never accomplish as much as the one person who votes.
Obviously, I'm not against freedom of speech, or of people's right to peaceably assemble, but what we have seen over the past two years, since the exact moment that Donald Trump was elected President, is a sorry excuse for freedom of speech, often driven by a desire to do away with free speech as we know it.
At the moment, we're in the last threads of the game, unsure if the hail Mary is going to land.
Unlike the far-left—and, well, increasingly, the left in general—we should not equate words with violence, which deserves a violent response. So this is our moment. We react to the leftist threats and outrage with dignity, not violence. As we have so many times before, we let the democratic process run its course, and the results will speak for themselves.
At the moment, we're in the last threads of the game, unsure if the hail Mary is going to land. We don't know what's about to happen. But, whatever the result, we ought to move forward with class and dignity.
