Legendary “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” superstar Charlie Daniels has been all around the world playing music, but he has made it clear that he is a patriotic American and does not want to live anywhere else.
However, Daniels is not blind to the many problems that plague America’s political system, and he has stayed active as a commentator on activity in Washington, D.C.
When asked why he chooses to weigh in on political matters, Daniels answered, “There’s absolutely no place that holds a candle to this country no matter what anybody says. There’s not as many freedoms and opportunities anywhere else like we’ve got here. I’m not running for office or something like that, I’m just doing it because I love this country and I have a very definite idea what it’s about, what the Constitution is about, what direction I feel we should be going in.”
Daniels has been disappointed by Congress’ lack of success in passing legislation to move President Donald Trump’s vision for America foward. Said Charlie last week, “Why does the nation have to wait and hurt while you clowns on Capitol Hill play your gotcha games. GET TO WORK!!!” He later added, “Sometimes I think we’d be better off without political parties. Then politicians could serve the people instead of the party.”
Following word that the Senate would not be holding a vote for the revised Trumpcare bill, Charlie did not hold back on Congress, posting, “OK the congress and senate we have can’t work together and have proven it. solution- replace them all until we find people who can.” He then zinged them, writing, “The senate is not a political body, its a kindergarten class.” Ouch! Do you agree with Charlie Daniels?
OK the congress and senate we have can't work together and have proven it.
solution- replace them all until we find people who can
