Potus 45 and Dan Patrick – Saving The Economy Matters Too

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.

Freedom Fighters Die

Pioneering baseball hero Jackie Robinson was born on January 31, 1919. He is famous for saying, “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.”

Judged in this light what should we say about Guy Fawkes, who died on January 31, 1606?

Fawkes was executed as a traitor but his image has become a symbol of opposition to tyranny.

After his arrest he said, “A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

Have the boundaries between oppression and freedom been forever blurred?
