Country Music Legend Calls Out Congress: ‘You’ve Betrayed Your Country’.
A legendary singer and songwriter isn't happy or proud with the way that America is being run or the direction that he feels it's headed.
Charlie Daniels, who was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008, penned an open letter to Congress recently in which he calls out the government for betraying America.
"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."
Daniels compared the current political establishment with the Continental Congress, a group he said had a "lot of old-fashioned guts." He continued by comparing politicians of today with the likes of Abraham Lincoln and the military leaders of WWII who boldly fought and paved the way for our freedoms.
In one cogent paragraph which gives a hint at what may have prompted Daniels' lengthy attack, he asks members of Congress to sit down and ask themselves if the upcoming Iran deal is really as good as they believe.
He says they should ask themselves, "Do I really believe that Iran will not use the money we're releasing to them to finance terrorists to kill Americans?"
However, it's not merely the Iran deal which comes under the wrath of Daniels' words. He has choice descriptions for the IRS, the border crisis being felt by many in the southern United States, and of the national debt which he describes as ballooning "completely out of control."
Daniels' closes his open letter with the words "God Bless America," but it's clear that his faith is shaken. However, he got a lot of things right. The country is on the wrong track, Daniels. Thanks for giving us more ammunition to demand change from Congress and turn the country around.
