Rep. Kelly to IRS victims: “Do not give up … Don't be afraid of this government … We’ve got your back.”

“If at some point we cannot stop this culture of fear – this government-sponsored fear – then we are really coming up short on what the oath is that we took. We took an oath of office not to defend the rights of Republicans, or Democrats, or Libertarians … We took an oath to defend our Constitution.”

“I really applaud you for what you’re doing today. Do not give up on this. … Stay the course, do not give up, and please spread the word to the rest of the American public: ‘Do not be afraid of this government.’ It is only when we fear the government that we lose. This is a government that is supposed to serve the people — the people are not supposed to serve it. So keep up the fight. We’re with you. And we’ve got your back.”

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

and walks like a schmuck, well then !
