Helping someone in genuine need makes the heart feel good.
But governments cannot fill the place for love with money.
A bankrupt government wont be able to do anything for anyone.
As the 45th president of The United Sates has told America, “Our country wasn’t built to be shut down.”
A big, surviving, private economy will give more jobs, more real livelihoods, than governments can.
In this time when human beings across the world are face to face with our own mortality, a truly courageous and profoundly wise man has spoken up for the nation he loves.
I salute 69-year-old Texas Republican, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick,
for the patriotic example of rugged self reliance he displays when he says:
“Let’s get back to work, let’s get back to living, let’s be smart about it, and those of us who are 70-plus, we’ll take care of ourselves.”
Is this is a resurrection of the spirit of the The Greatest Generation?
With herd immunity, nations survive.
Sacrifice can get us there.
I love Dan Patrick.
