America is more divided than any point in recent memory after years of intolerant hateful rhetoric from Democrats.
Such division is on full display in Congress where legislators are constantly at odds over even the smallest of issues.
But Democrats stamped their feet in anger after Rand Paul drew this line in the sand.
Democrats will do absolutely anything to ram their radical agenda into law
Over the last several years, the radical Left has proven that they are mobilized and aggressive.
Additionally, the radical left is more extreme than at any other time in American history, and Democrat Members of Congress are working night and day to ram their radical agenda down Americans’ throats.
Fortunately, there are some Members of Congress who are willing to stand up for America and freedom.
One such Member of Congress is Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), who just walked out of a committee meeting after he caught Democrats breaking Senate rules red-handed.
During a Homeland Security Committee meeting on Wednesday, Senator Paul erupted on Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) for abusing the power he holds as the Committee’s Chairman.
While discussing the Fire Grants and Safety Act, Senator Peters blocked every single Republican amendment.
Then, Peters offered an amendment after already offering a second-degree amendment and, therefore, another could not be brought forward.
“We have what, unlimited second-degree amendments?” Paul said. “If this is the way you’re going to run the committee, I would suggest that Republicans leave. I don’t see why we should stick around if you’re going to make up the rules. I mean, you’re going to offer up a third-degree amendment.”
“I, for one, won’t stay here, and recommend that no Republican stay here if we’re going to have third-degree amendments that only the majority gets to offer,” he added.
Senator Paul then made good on his threat, promptly leaving the Committee’s meeting.
“I look forward to working with Senator Paul and hopefully we can find common ground to go forward,” Peters claimed following the fiery exchange. “Some of the amendments he offered were not germane to the substance of the bill that we were dealing with.”
This example of Democrats manipulating Senate rules and protocols is just one of many as of late.
Democrats have proven that they have absolutely no interest in actually working to fix the many issues plaguing America, and instead, only care about forcing their radical agenda into law.
Senator Rand Paul was completely justified in his outrage, and other Senators ought to take note.
Stopping the radical Left’s agenda requires fighting fire with fire.
The point of the Senate is to carefully deliberate on important bills and measures, not stifle meaningful debate.
Democrats are proving the futility of the federal government with every obstructionist move they make.
