Madison Cawthorn stands out in Washington, DC.
Not because he’s in a wheelchair after a devastating car accident when he was 18 years old…not because his North Carolina district’s biggest city is the mostly Democratic city of Asheville…but because he’s a YOUNG Republican in a world where the mainstream media has told us that the youth are all Liberal.
That’s obviously wrong…and Madison Cawthorn is evidence of that.
For many, particularly the people who voted for him, his youth is a major advantage.
However, Cawthorn has been met with a little resistance based on his youth and associated inexperience…not from Democrats, but by people in his own party.
Republicans can be… skeptical, to say the least.
However, the fact is that Madison Cawthorn has proven himself to be an ardent patriot time and time again.
When the National Guard troops were relegated to a damned parking garage in DC, Cawthorn took it upon himself to go visit those guardsmen and bring them hot pizza rather than sit around and just tweeting about how outrageous it was.
This gained him some points…
But again, he’s a freshman Congressman, meaning he’s still got a ways to go.
However, he may have just picked up a lot of ground and earned a LOT of respect for his recent remarks during a debate on the House floor when he echoed the sentiments of the great warrior-king Leonidas of Sparta.
During his time on the floor, Cawthorn showed us both why he was elected and why we should trust his voice in the party going forward, defending the Second Amendment in a rousing speech and proving that he really is the patriot he claimed to be.
In the speech, Cawthorn said, “Mr. Speaker, if we lose the Second Amendment, then the First will fall.”
And that’s where this kid won me over…
He’s absolutely right.
In fact, the First Amendment wouldn’t be the only casualty, as the Second is what holds up all the other Amendments in the Bill of Rights.
Cawthorn could have stopped speaking there, but he continued…
“I want to remind my colleagues of a simple fact that is far too often swept under the rug by the Left: Americans have a right to obtain firearms for lawful purposes. I’ll say it again louder for those on the Left sleeping in the back: Americans have a RIGHT to obtain firearms. This is MY right… and Mr. Speaker, this is YOUR right.”
Spot on… again.
“Let me be clear to everyone in this chamber,” he continued. “You will not take this right away from us. I know it’s easy to be sucked into the DC bubble, but outside of here, in real America, when we say ‘Come and Take It,’ we damn well mean it.”
Madison then went on to describe what the bill would do to the American people, but then brought it right back around to his point.
“But let us be clear: The Left is not here today to debate this bill, nor are they here to legislate in the best interests of the American people. They are here to shove it [the bill] down our throats. My colleagues and I on the Right have been called here to defend one of our most sacred rights, because YOU, Mr. Speaker think that the Constitution is just another piece of paper to tear down the middle of and toss aside. I speak for millions of Americans. I specifically speak for the 700,000 plus Americans in MY district.”
Where did this come from?
The loins of Patrick Henry?
But his close to his speech was what clinched it for me and a bunch of other Conservatives.
Doing his best Leonidas imitation, Madison said, “If you think this bastardization of the Constitution will be met with silence you know nothing of the America I know. You want my guns, I know it, we all know it. Well, Mr. Speaker, you can come and take them.”
Watch the whole thing here:
Come and take them…
That’s not just a catchphrase; it’s a challenge.
Coming for American guns is the WORST thing the Left could do – not for us, but for themselves.
The Right realizes what the guns are for…
As Madison pointed out, it’s to protect all the rights that God bestowed upon us and the government was supposed to protect.
If the Left is allowed to take them away, they’ll be allowed to take ALL rights away—and we’ll be the ones that gave them permission.
Not on my watch…
And definitely not on Madison Cawthorn’s watch.
We have an ally in Congress – and he may be young, but the Force is strong in him.
Welcome to the future of the GOP…
