The extremely junior senator from Illinois came out last week in San Francisco (not like that, get your mind out of the gutter) and said – well, let’s let him speak for himself:
You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot of them — like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they’ve gone through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
I’ve got a news flash for junior. The reason I cling to guns is because I can’t trust the government to protect me. The reason I cling to God is because I can trust Him to do so.
Audio below, I got it from here.
