People need to realize that there are some younger members of Congress that have the fire and venom that is needed to get things done over a long period of time.
As wise as some of the older folks in the Capitol might be, we need younger people all the time that are willing to stand up and deliver the speech with the energy that needs to be given to get the right point across.
The thing about that is there are some that are looking to protect their jobs, and some like what you are about to see that want to actually change things.
Rep. Matt Gaetz is one of the last Republicans left actually fighting for the people he represents. In a post-riot debate challenging the election results, Gaetz continued his objection with facts and logic.
“This morning, President Trump explicitly called for demonstrations and protests to be peaceful. He was far more — you can moan and groan — but he was far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of the BLM and left-wing rioters were this summer when we saw violence sweep across this nation,” the Republican congressman said.
“Now we came here today to debate, to follow regular order to, to offer an objection, to follow a process that is expressly contemplated in our Constitution. And for doing that, we’ve been called a bunch of seditious traitors. … And when those things are said, people get angry,” Gaetz added.

The Republican congressman also defended President Trump, saying that he was not responsible for the violence perpetrated on the Capitol. “He was far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of the BLM and left-wing rioters were this summer, when we saw violence sweep across this nation,” Gaetz said.
