Yesterday the 46th President of the United States was sworn into office. We all want every President to succeed when it comes to protecting our nation from foreign adversaries. However, when it comes to policies which may harm our economy, our values, or Constitutional rights we can speak up and use our voices, and offices, to push back.
For the 70,000,000+ people who supported President Trump’s policies which helped secure our borders, create a roaring economy prior to the pandemic, and protect our values; I encourage you to remind people, if they struggle under liberal policies, what they lost. We must spread a positive message to our neighbors and friends who may not have understood or have acknowledged the need for our policies why we support a conservative vision.
Before too long the tweets that were so distracting to some will be replaced with the reality of hardship when some jobs and hope may be tough to come by… I am especially concerned for the tens of thousands of Louisianans whose jobs are either directly, or indirectly, connected to the energy industry which has allowed all of America to grow and prosper for many years.
Republicans should be united in presenting a contrast and not play into the extreme left’s playbook. There will no doubt be struggles as the very few remaining old-line Democrats struggle with the rising socialists who fuel their party. Let’s let them participate in self-destruction as we remain united and focused on policies grounded in the Constitution and the Rule of Law.
We must remind the voters who may swing from Democrat to Republican from time-to-time that our policies encourage job growth and better futures for their families; regardless of their race, geography, or economic background.
Where we can find bipartisan solutions let’s support them, just as I did when I was in Congress. However, where we have disagreements, let’s use our voices – our voices – to point out there is a better way.
As Attorney General of Louisiana I will remain committed to protecting the federal 10th Amendment. I will work to protect our 1st Amendment and our 2nd Amendment. I will work to protect the right to life along with our right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
