Charlie Daniels' Open Letter to Congress: 'You've Betrayed Your Country'
August 26, 2015
I am a proud American who believes that America has held - and still holds - a very sensitive and special place in the affairs of mankind on Planet Earth. I believe that America has been divinely blessed and protected in our two centuries.
The history of this nation is written in the blood and courage of men who stood in the face of overwhelming odds - politicians, soldiers, statesmen and ordinary citizens who sought to do the right thing regardless of the cost or the consequences. Well, ladies and gentlemen of the United States Congress, it seems that that particular pen has run out of ink. The courageous politicians that once championed this nation have been replaced, for the most part, by a breed of milksop, politically correct, scared of their own shadow, pushover, pathetic excuses for public servants who are supposed to be representing a constituency of citizens who have to live with the circumstances of their timid folly.
