Ben Sasse Drops the HAMMER on Crazy Democrats, Nails Political Hysteria
Ben Sasse is the man. If you're out there screaming "But he didn't like Trump during the election!" please kindly escort yourself out. If you're going to be so tribal you can't accept this awesome speech on balances of power, Democrat theatrics, and all things political truth, I can't help you. Because this dressing down Ben Sasse delivered to the Democrats in the Senate during Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing is practically perfect in every way.
A-freaking-men. I would marry this speech if I could. Ben Sasse perfectly nails the problem of big government: that government is getting bigger and bigger. All crystallized by the hysteria people have when one person is nominated to one position in power. One person in government wouldn't cause all this panic if the government wasn't given so much power. So in order to keep their jobs, in order to keep getting elected, these same government tyrants "punt their power" so they can elude blame when ca-ca inevitably hits the spinning fan.
When the government gets bigger, as big as it is now, it's hard for you and I to know where to address the issues we have with government. It's that massive. Where do we go to deal with some position we never nominated or elected? How can we possibly address grievances against government when we're not sure from whence that government power sprouted?
So we turn to the judicial nominations for super legislation. To "check" what the legislative branch wouldn't check as it ceded more power to the executive. "We need school house rock back," as Ben Sasse says, to balance all these powers. That and a bunch of other winning comments I cannot possibly fit into one post without crying tears of joy.
