I know, I know, TWO political posts in a row? Apologies, but I have had the election on my brain, and with all the muddled, depressing, and shocking updates about the presidential election going around, I thought it would be nice to write a happier piece regarding the general elections.
Tuesday, November 3rd, was election day in America. It is the day where we are supposed to choose our President for the next four years. It is also the day where we choose who will be representing us in Congress for the ensuing two years. In the U.S. House of Representatives, notable (and might I add repulsive) Congresswomen and men were re-elected to their seats, such as Ilhan Omar, Eric Swallwell, and AOC.
Yes, Alexandria Occasional Cortex (hat tip Andrew Klavan) won re-election, the ever wide-eyed echocondriac of a Marxist who is the true face of the Democratic party. She runs on spouting ridiculous propositions with a relatively straight face (aka the Green New Deal), gaming on Twitch, Instagram live, and accusing people who criticize her ideas of sexism and that they won’t take her seriously because she is the youngest member of Congress, and just because she is young doesn’t mean she should be looked down on.
Representative Cortez is partially correct; just because someone is young does not mean they are stupid. Representative Cortez, however, can no longer pull the “youngest member of the House” claim when someone hurts her feelings, for a new youngest member has taken that title.
And boy what a replacement.
Madison Cawthorn is the new Representative for the 11th Congressional district of North Carolina. You may recognize Cawthorn from speaking at this year’s Republic National Convention, where he gave his life story, and at 25 years old, he has had quite the experience already. When he was 18, Cawthorn was in a horrible car crash that paralyzed him from the waist down. He was given a 1 percent chance of survival. Cawthorn says that through the power of prayer he is here today. After a year in recovery, Cawthorn said he wanted to give up, but realized that God had spared his mind and his ability to speak for a reason: “My accident has given me new eyes to see and new ears to hear.” He said in his RNC speech.
Cawthorn will be the youngest member elected to Congress in over 200 years, taking second place besides William Charles Claiborne, who was just 22 when he replaced Andrew Jackson in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The far-left “news” platform, CNN, describes Cawthorn as “fiscally conservative, anti-abortion, pro-gun and an immigration hardliner,” all of which Cawthorn warmly embraces vocally and on his campaign website, especially when it comes to the sacredness of human life:
I am a pro-life advocate. Life begins at conception and the protection of life ought to begin at conception as well. The current system of infanticide can no longer be tolerated under any legal or scientific standard.
Babies born as early as 20 weeks gestational age have gone on to be healthy, normal children. But it is perfectly legal to have an on-demand abortion until 26 weeks gestational age. These children, who would be able to survive outside the womb, are being brutally murdered simply based upon their arbitrary location in their mother’s womb. This is not a right or left issue, this is an American Epidemic. The U.S. is 1 of only 7 countries worldwide that allow abortions after 20 weeks, and 75% of Americans want new limits on abortion.
I will fight tirelessly to advocate for the rights of the unborn in the halls of the powerful. Their voices will not be silenced in Washington.Madison Cawthorn
Madison Cawthorn is a bold, unabashed and hard-working Christian who will strive to fulfill 1 Timothy 4:12 “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
As a young conservative, I am inspired by Cawthorn’s story, and emboldened by his fearless stance for faith, freedom and family. I am looking forward to seeing him cause ruckus in the U.S. House along with the one-eyed Texan Dan Crenshaw and my state of Illinois’ very own newly elected Mary Miller. AOC and her squad better watch out, some Proverbs’ 28 lions are coming to Washington.
