Well done, thy good and faithful servant. Enter into thy rest that hast been prepared for thee.
Our old friend Bob was kind enough to notify me of the passing of Jesse Helms. Truly the end of an era
…Wish I’d had the honor of shaking his hand and thanking him for all he’d done on behalf of decent, traditional Americans.
Like Jefferson and Adams, gone on our nation’s birthday.
Indeed, for a patriot, the Fourth of July is a good day to die. The great conservative icons are passing one by one, and “Senator No” is just the latest of them.
Thank you Senator for your service to your country and unyielding dedication to principle no matter what the consequences. You will be missed.
“Jesse Helms was one of the most consequential figures of the 20th century. Along with Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan, he helped establish the conservative movement and became a powerful voice for free markets and free people. The defeat of Soviet communism and the rise of Ronald Reagan would not have happened without his intrepid leadership at decisive times.
He was the longest serving U.S. senator from North Carolina and a great friend… Although America has lost a great Patriot, his legacy will live on.”
