Something constructive actually happened during the first day of Senate hearings on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.
Senators from both sides of the aisle got a chance to speak. Most speeches were just bloviating nonsense. However one was most certainly not.
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse (R), actually took the time, not to preach, but to educate.
I’ve not been a huge fan of Sasse in the past, but I have new found respect for this politician who knows how are government was originally supposed to work and how it became the purposely dysfunctional mess we see today. And he was able to effectively communicate this for all to understand.
This is an absolute must-see for anyone who, A: doesn’t understand the function of the three branches of government – the Executive, the Legislative and the Judicial, and B: doesn’t fully grasp exactly how we ended up so far afield from the founder’s vision of federalism.
This video is one of the most productive uses of 11 minutes and 50 seconds I can think of, and I encourage you to consider having your children watch with you.
