January 3, 2019 is the peaceful transition of power—the right way

Jan. 3, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on the swearing in of the new Congress:

“Today America celebrates one of its time-honored traditions, the peaceful transition of power as the Democrats take over control of the House of Representatives. It is important to note that unlike two years ago, conservatives have not taken to the streets in protest, there are no masked unhinged rioters breaking windows and burning cars.  No, while conservatives will do everything within our power to win on policy matters, we do not wish soon to be Speaker Pelosi ill-will.  While we will continue our political clash over whether America has a right to protect our borders as it represents an existential threat to our nation, we won’t be taking over the offices of those who disagree, instead the American people will seek to remove them from those offices in two-years.  It is my sincere hope that Speaker Pelosi and her supporters recognize the difference between this peaceful transition and what their supporters have engaged in for the past two years and seek to restore some level of sanity on the left.”
