Williamson: ‘We’re Behaving Like the Aristocracy We Repudiated in 1776’
WILLIAMSON: "This country needs to transform. And this country needs a president, and this president should emerge from a party that is ready to go deeper, go soulful, get real, do some truth telling, talk not just the truth. Every Democrat running is talking the truth. But ladies and gentlemen, we need to do more than talk the truth. We need to say the whole truth and nothing but the truth. If we tell, if we talk the whole truth and nothing but the truth, America has some painful truths to look at. America has to look at how many ways we are not behaving like the country that we purport to be. Or the ways in which we are not aligned with the principles on which we claim to stand. In a country where the government at this point does more to advocate for those who are already rich so that they can get richer and to advocate less for those who can hardly make it at all, we’re not the even behaving like a democracy. We are behaving like an aristocracy we repudiated in 1776 and we need to repudiated again."
