“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” — Elie Wiesel
As our Constitution and our rights are continually challenged, Elie Wiesel’s words ring truer than ever. Our protests against infringement on the First and Second Amendments are passionate and ongoing. We must speak out for our right to be heard, or we will be silenced by those who hate what we say and believe. We must fight for our right to bear arms, or those who resent us will remove our ability to defend ourselves. Every day the media broadcasts stories of people who want to rewrite the Constitution to push their own power and agenda and disempower the rest of us.
We also must protest when we see illegal, immoral and despicable actions that are so outrageous that we simply can’t believe them: the betrayal of the United States by the intelligence agencies. Although I’ve seen Republicans delving into these violations of our own government, we must protest and investigate more than ever before. Don’t think that the Democrats are just adamant about continuing their investigations to take down Donald Trump. They are also prepared to take down Conservatives, Republicans, and our entire country if need be. They are relentless, but we must be even more relentless.
I’m counting on Devin Nunes, Lindsay Graham, and the Republicans on their committees (even though Nunes is not in charge) to fight ceaselessly to get to the truth. I’m appealing to AG Bill Barr to see that the criminals are brought to justice. These blatant attacks on our rule of law cannot go unpunished.
We must never fail to protest the attacks on our Republic, from within or without.
