CNN’s Jake Tapper questioned my commitment to Democracy. Watch it here:
I lost two legs for Jake’s right to say whatever the hell he wants, but let’s be clear: that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election.
If you agree, can I count on you to help us defend our Constitution?
No matter what Jake thinks, my commitment to our country is unwavering. I love America, and for all the divide right now there is still no country anywhere I would rather be a part of! I’m guessing you feel the same way.
To put an even finer point on it personally, though: I may have just been a grunt soldier who spent life trying to figure out whether to cut the red wire or blue wire on bombs, but I did it because all I’ve ever wanted to do was serve my country – first in the military, and after my injury rendered that impossible, as a Republican representative in Congress fighting for the same American values that I defended on the battlefield.
Although I lost two legs and a finger when I was blown up by radical Islamic terrorists, I consider myself fortunate to wake up each morning with the opportunity to watch my kids grow up and continue serving our nation. The only reason I get to do these things is because of my fellow soldiers who ran toward the explosion underneath me instead of away from it. They saved my life.
Today, we face a different but familiar threat to our nation – censorship from big tech, an anti-conservative double standard from media like CNN, and a growing socialist movement intent on dismantling our way of life.
If, like me, you want better for our nation, will you please join me in working to call out the hypocrisy and defend our beautiful country?
