Actions speak louder than words

The members of Pennsylvania’s Sedition Caucus in Congress want you to forget what they did to overturn the Electoral College vote and to promote the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. After trying to overthrow our democracy they then had the nerve to issue these business-as-usual July 4th statements:

John Joyce: “On this Independence Day, we celebrate our freedom and the brave men and women who have fought to defend it.”

Fred Keller: “On this July 4th, the American people celebrate the 245th anniversary of our nation’s founding, a celebration of the shared values that unite us as a country.”

Mike Kelly: “Happy Independence Day! The United States is the greatest democratic experiment in human history and has been a trailblazer for freedom across the globe.”

Scott Perry: “Happy Independence Day, and God Bless America.”

Guy Reschenthaler: “We should always be proud of our great country and values.”

Lloyd Smucker: “As your Congressman and proud American, Happy Independence Day and may God bless the greatest nation in the history of mankind.”

Glenn Thompson: “It is the solemn duty of those of us who work in government to lead and represent the people so they can continue to live in freedom.”

Read these statements and remember what they did. They are all traitors to our democracy and values.

If they had a shred of decency and honesty, they would all resign immediately. But, expecting not, they should be voted out of office next year. Just vote these traitors out.
