(Liberty Bell) – What our nation needs more than anything right now is leadership that will actually stick to the principles they claim to believe in, which means folks who are willing to do the hard things in order to ensure that the values that make our way of life possible continue to exist. This is an effort that the radical left in the United States is working hard to undermine and destroy.
Thankfully, there are quite a few patriots in the Republican Party who aren’t afraid to face down the liberal masses and take criticism from the establishment in their own party and ensure that the way of life we enjoy right now continues to exist for future generations.
One such patriot is Sen. Ted Cruz.
According to Infowars, Sen. Ted Cruz has called for Democrats who have been accusing him of “sedition” and “treason” due to his challenge of the election results, to “tone down the rhetoric.”
“I think everyone needs to calm down,” Cruz said to Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. “I think we need to tone down the rhetoric. This is already a volatile situation. It’s like a tinderbox and throwing lit matches into it.”
“Yesterday, when I released my statement with the 10 other senators, I had multiple Democrats urging that I should be arrested and tried for the crimes of sedition and treason,” the Texas senator explained.

“That’s not helpful…at a time when we’re pitted against each other. Just relax, and let’s do our jobs. We have a responsibility to follow the law,” he continued.
Cruz then went on to explain that challenging election results is not seditious, especially since there’s a large concern among the American public about whether or not the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

The senator is, of course, totally right.
In fact, our elected officials are obligated to ensure the integrity of our electoral system has not in any way been compromised, whether by people of our own country or from foreign nations across the globe. They are only doing their jobs. It’s critical that we protect our free and fair elections, otherwise we lose our republic.
Conservatives are only asking for the evidence of voter fraud that exists to be thoroughly and properly examined. This in no way makes someone seditious.
