"The Democratic administration has greatly lost the confidence of the American people by its complacency to the threat of communism and the leak of vital secrets to Russia through key officials of the Democratic administration.
There are enough proved cases to make this point without diluting our criticism with unproved charges.
Surely these are sufficient reasons to make it clear to the American people that it is time for a change and that a Republican victory is necessary to the security of this country.
Surely it is clear that this nation will continue to suffer as long as it is governed by the present ineffective Democratic Administration.
Yet to displace it with a Republican regime embracing a philosophy that lacks political integrity or intellectual honesty would prove equally disastrous to this nation. The nation sorely needs a Republican victory.
But I don't want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the Four Horsemen of Calumny -- Fear, Ignorance, Bigotry and Smear.
I doubt if the Republican Party could -- simply because I don't believe the American people will uphold any political party that puts political exploitation above national interest.

The Declaration of Conscience was a speech made by U.S. Senator Margaret Chase Smith on June 1, 1950, less than four months after Senator Joe McCarthy's "Wheeling Speech," on February 9, 1950.
Her speech was endorsed by six other liberal-to-moderate Republicans. In it, she criticized national leadership and called for the country, the United States Senate, and the Republican Party to re-examine the tactics used by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and
(without naming him) Senator Joe McCarthy. She stated the basic principles of "Americanism" were:

The right to criticize;
The right to hold unpopular beliefs;
The right to protest;
The right of independent thought.
Smith voiced concern that those who exercised those beliefs at that time risked unfairly being labeled communist or fascist.

Where is the Margaret Chase Smith's of our time?

#CocaineMitch has my complete support. Judge Brett Kavanaugh and President Trump deserves this superb nominee to be seated as the newest Justice of the Supreme Court. America voted and elections have consequences. Let's do this!

Regarding @SenatorCollins who took to the floor of the Senate and laid out a case in 44 minutes of the most compelling oratory since another woman Sen Margaret Chase Smith

In case you don't know who Senator Margaret Chase Smith was, well Sunday is a good time to learn about #DeclarationOfConsceince and the woman who saved the Senate.

So we have a flood of attacks from the women of @TheDemocrats the DNCmedia and the usual suspects for daring to hold an independent thought.
Instead we have unhinged demonstrators paid for by George "Resist" Soros, @lsarsour or as she is know throughout the world, LaCucaracha

Remarks With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe state.gov/secretary/rema… (from @StateDept)
(Via interpreter) During my most recent trip to New York on the occasion of the UN General Assembly, I had very productive discussions with President Trump over dinner as well as our summit meeting.
And I believe that utilizing these opportunities, we could demonstrate to the world that the alliance between Japan and the United States has become more robust than ever.
