Too many elected officials don’t go to Washington, D.C. to work for the people. These individuals simply want power. They want to feel important. The United States Senate has 100 of the most influential elected officials on earth. They are critical to our democracy.
Each U.S. state has two. As is the case with virtually any public office, there is a tendency for a U.S. senator to become self-absorbed in his or her own self-importance. It is a prestigious office. However, there are dedicated patriots who understand the true job of a United States senator.
That job is to work feverishly for their employer. Their employer is the American people, their voters. When a senator follows that single most important guideline, he or she will be successful. Those who maintain the highest levels of integrity and professionalism can expect long and fruitful careers.
If any single U.S. senator exemplifies these two critical attributes, it’s Louisiana Senator John Kennedy. Senator Kennedy is a one-of-a-kind gem. Not only is he a wise politician, but Senator Kennedy appreciates his place in the grand scheme of things.
He believes he is one man, a fellow U.S. citizen entrusted with an important job: representing the American people. Along the way, Senator Kennedy will poke fun at himself, the institution he represents, and especially the insanity he sees as an inherent part of Washington, D.C.
Senator Kennedy loves nothing more than to wax poetically about the radical shift he’s witnessed by the far-left in the Democrat Party. Make no mistake about it, Senator John Kennedy is a conservative, and a proud conservative. But he has and will continue to “reach across the aisle” in compromise.
However, John Kennedy, the man or the senator, will never compromise his values. Far too much of the radical progressive agenda opposes the core American values Senator Kennedy believes in. In a recent political ad, he uses a little humor to get across some very serious points.
Senator Kennedy believes in law and order, strong borders, and the power of parents in their children’s lives. He stands behind police, legal immigration, and a strong educational system that teaches American values.
What he doesn’t stand for are many of the ignorant policies of the radical left. In his new political ad, Senator Kennedy says as much. He stands, serious as always, beside a tank full of jellyfish. Senator Kennedy then begins to obliterate the radical progressive left’s woeful ideology.
He begins the ad by telling the American people, “The Left thinks that by defunding the police, we’re gonna stop crime.” He continues by saying, “The Left thinks that vetting at our southern border is racist.” These are two of the key points in the new Republican “Commitment to America.”
Senator Kennedy then says, “The Left thinks that government employees have a constitutional right to talk to five-year-olds about sexuality. I know, it’s frustrating to me too, to see our country, which was founded by geniuses, and being run by idiots.”
And then, in perfect John Kennedy tongue-in-check form, he nails the punch line. “But still, I’m an optimistic guy. I have hope for my liberal friends. Jellyfish have survived for 165 million years without a brain.” But the wise senator from the great state of Louisiana is not alone.
Americans have watched the radically liberal policies of the new Democrat Party for two years. Since “clueless Joe” Biden took office, Democrats have controlled all three branches of the U.S. federal government. They’ve done nothing but drive the country into the ground.
Stupid politicians make stupid policies. But smart voters get rid of stupid politicians before they can do more damage. Senator Kennedy is right on all his points. But most of all, he’s appealing to one bold statement. “Stupidity is Painful!” No one wants to be labeled as stupid.
Americans are tired of far-left policy driven pain: the pain of crime, the anguish over inflation, and the agony of fear. Voting for a Democrat in November may be the dumbest notion ever conceived. Some will fall victim to their ignorance. But like Senator Kennedy, Americans are smartening up.
