John Wayne on Liberty and the Role of Government

Ah, the Duke was a man’s man, wasn’t he? John Wayne knew how to command a scene and how to explain something so simply that even the most dull-of-thinking person could understand.

A clip from one of his old films has been making the rounds, and boy is it perfect. I imagine that liberal skulls across American burst each and every time someone replays this clip.

Watch for yourself and be in awe at what Hollywood used to be.

Trending: The Media Is Generally Ignoring the Other Story Out of Charlottesville

Have you heard of some fellas, who first came over to this country? You know what they found? They found a howling wilderness, with summers too hot, and winters freezing. Did they have insurance for their old age, for their crops, for their homes?

They did not. They looked at the land and the forest and the rivers.  They looked at their wives, their kids, and their houses. Then they looked up at the sky and said “Thanks God, we’ll take it from here.” They were men!

That’s good stuff right there.
