Kinzinger: “It’s easier to tell people what they want to hear”

I have to believe when the dust settles and the intoxicating lies have lost their power, that more people will respect a leader who stood on principle and told them the uncomfortable truth rather than giving false hope based on false information.

BOURBONNAIS – Rep. Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) is among the 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump in November’s election and he’s asking you to hear him out ahead of Wednesday’s voter certification.

“It certainly would be easier to tell you President Trump won the 2020 election because it’s easier to tell people what they want to hear. But it just isn’t the truth, and I will always endeavor to tell you the truth, no matter how inconvenient,” Kinzinger said in a statement issued before Wednesday’s certification.

The Congressman added no evidence of fraud in the election process has been found by a wide variety of agencies guarding America’s election process. He added the ‘intoxicating lies have lost their power.’

Kinzinger is one of few minority voices in the GOP and not one of the 106 U.S. Representatives serving in the 116th Congress to sign the controversial amicus brief filed to the Supreme Court.

“Of the countless court cases brought, none has gone anywhere because they’ve all been based on hollow allegations, anecdotal evidence, or conspiracy theories that were easily disproved. Those leaders who claim the opposite are either engaged in wishful thinking or willful deception. Either way, I’ve never seen anything like it, and it’s incredibly dangerous.” Kinzinger stressed Wednesday.

“I have to believe when the dust settles and the intoxicating lies have lost their power, that more people will respect a leader who stood on principle and told them the uncomfortable truth rather than giving false hope based on false information. If I’m wrong and lose my seat, so be it. After all, I’ve gone to war and risked my LIFE to fight for our flag and freedoms. I’m sure as hell not afraid of losing a JOB to do the same thing today.”
