House Speaker Paul Ryan's office put out a Friday email blast to "unite the clans," a reference to the Academy Award-winning film "Braveheart."
The email calls attention to Ryan's penchant for referencing the epic film about the Scottish battle for independence while pushing his plan to unite conservatives around a "bold, pro-growth agenda."
The email also featured a gif of star Mel Gibson from that scene in the film.
"Building a movement—particularly one based on such an inclusive approach—takes time, but as Braveheart reminds us, it's all worth it in the fight for 'freeeeedooooooooom,'" the email read.
if this is what he said it's still stupid too many will get loss at "CLAN" or is that a dog whistle statement????
there was no American history that compared he had to go and use some other country's history. he really needs to take a stroll through his mind the freedoms he speaks of are for their big business benefactors not we the people they have made that abundantly clear where their loyalty lies but words reach gullible ears are like a refreshing redemption of all the negative venomous rants and act they ever committed in the name of the Lord and the republicans who supervise him. you can tell when your religion is right when your God agrees with everything you say and do.
you know how they say the American people are frustrated they imply some outright say because of us read the link below get the real 411.
The reason we are in this internecine battle within the GOP is because the base has been ignored and marginalized by candidates and consultants for too long. It is this behavior that will rip the party apart if there is no change.
The fact is, 62% of Republicans feel betrayed by the party and, to prove it, roughly 60% of primary voters are currently supporting political outsiders like Trump, Fiorina, Carson and Cruz. This isn’t just an ad hoc collection of misbegotten tea partiers hijacking the GOP for kicks. Strip away ubiquitous campaign rhetoric about tapping into anger and frustration, and we are left with the forgotten majority within the GOP -- the base -- taking a firm stand. They will no longer succumb to elite pleas to vote for this guy because he’s the only one who can win, cross the aisle and get the job done. They will no longer shore up Republicans who support legislation that undermines their interests.they are losing their grip and that my friends is "CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN"!!!!!!!!!!
