WASHINGTON, DC, Mar 31 — “We’ve got to take our country back. That means we’ve got to get way more involved if we want to have the country that we want for our kids and our grandkids,” says Senator Rick Scott [R-FL]. In an interview with Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens, on her AMAC Better For America podcast, the former Governor of Florida went on to say that the political machinations of leftist anti-American activists have set our country on the road to perdition.
Scott went on to express his concern that instead of focusing on political discourse, the left is engrossed in efforts to politically persecute former President Donald Trump in his effort to regain the presidency in 2024. “They hate Trump … [and] they’re doing to do everything they can to bring him down.”
He expressed hope that people get engaged in the electoral process. “It’s one thing to talk about whether Trump has been treated [badly] or whether the issues are inflation, the open border or whether our military is focused more on pronouns, rather than being the most lethal military in the world.” Scott believes it is important for American voters “to get more involved [in the elections next year] if we want a better American government.”
Scott went on to take President Biden to task on the controversial issue of his come-one-come-all illegal immigrant catastrophe. From the day he took office in January of 2021, upwards of five million illegal immigrants have breached our southern border, according to The Federation for American Immigration Reform. As a result, Scott noted, tens of thousands of American citizens are dying on a regular basis from drug overdoses, particularly overdoses of deadly fentanyl. The Senator said he just did a roundtable in D.C. with parents that lost their kids as the result of fentanyl supplied by China and smuggled into the U.S. by the cartels.
“The Biden administration’s open border means we’re going to lose more American citizens due to fentanyl. We’re going to have more criminals coming to our country. We’re going to have more terrorists coming in. We’re going to have more Chinese spies coming to our country. There also are some good people that are coming, too. There’s people who just want to come and live their dream. They should come in a legal manner. I’m all for legal immigration. I’m from a state that believes in legal immigration, but not illegal immigration.”
Scott was asked what can be done to correct the mistakes that threaten the future of our country. His response: “We have to protest. We have to protest about the border. We have to protest about inflation. We have to protest about the things that the Democrats are doing that are hurting this country.” He went on to note that concerned citizens need to get vocal about their concerns for the future in order to convince lawmakers that our country needs a change: “It’s hard to protest. It’s hard to write op-eds. It’s hard to write letters. It’s hard to go to people’s offices and say, ‘this is what I expect.’ It’s hard to go to school board meetings to express our concerns. [But] if we do, this country will change. I believe in this country. [And] I believe people are going to show up and change the direction of the country.
Just as there are right ways to fight various types of fire there are right ways to protest. What is meant by protest is important in considering how to deal with the situations that are the objects being protested. The leftist anti – America element, seems to lack any soul in regards what the United States of America should stand for. When I use the word soul I am describing the belief system, the values that provide a foundation for the country. So, thinking in terms of fixing what needs to be fixed, politically, and improving what needs improvement can vary from one place to another. Developing a sense of responsibility about defending the principles that America was built on , developing a high level of intelligence about all the matters that are necessary to understand in order to operate the things vital to the economy. Being resourceful and having the courage to do what needs to be done, to defend truth and liberty
Respect for the will of God , at all times.
As far back as I can remember – applications and other forms have asked the color of my skin. It’s old. I am old.
Senator Scott, you are a member of our Congress & have the power to protest in Washington DC many times over what several lowly ordinary citizens like me have. Both parties need to start working together for the best of all Americans & not just a chosen party.
Since we find ourselves in a spiritual warfare, it is impossible to work with the evil leftists, as they are anti God. Believers in Christ simply can not follow the anti God path the leftists are going down. God is our Lord and Savior, not government.
The only thing that would save our country is for a majority of the people to come back to God. We have abandoned Him, and He is abandoning us.
Agree & I believe that the large amount of natural disasters that are hammering the USA with high frequency is one of the warnings to heed .
He has not abandoned us, although, we as a nation have perhaps forfeited blessings He otherwise would have bestowed upon us.
Rite off the bat,you gotta vote some people in that are not progressives ,or Libs. HGet some sehsible laws on the books, and run these clowns like Bragg out of office ,vigalinte style. Oh I can hear some of them now crying abt. how wrong that would be ,while drowning in a sea of , s___. Or name your own words. I’m sick and tired of whats goin on. Kyle L.
Senator Scott needs to organize and lead vocally and physically the first protest of conservatives/republicans. Need to see how that goes.
This needs to STOP…
Michigan State University language guide tells students to not use the words ‘AMERICA’, ‘CHRISTMAS TREE’, or ‘BUNNY’ (referring to Easter Bunny) among other words not to use violating the 1st Amendment by pushing FASCIST WOKE GARBAGE by BRAINWASHING and INDOCTRINATION of FASCIST COMMUNISM to Hate America and Hate Our Values.

The Braindead only become more Braindead and one day the Total Brainwashed and Indoctrinated Braindead will be running this country under Communist China rule. Why? Because they didn’t heed the WARNING.
Stop these dems legally
Laws would have to be enforced first That is the problem
I pray it’s not too late.
President Trump is the first president who was able to unite this country. DO NOT LET THE DEEP STATE WIN!!!!
