( - "I'm immensely proud of the work the Republican Senate has done. We're the firewall against Nancy Pelosi's agenda,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told the Republican National Convention Thursday night.

“Like president Trump, we won't be bullied by a liberal media intent on destroying America's institutions."

McConnell noted that he is the only political leader in Washington who doesn't come from New York or California: "I consider it my responsibility to look out for middle America."

And his warning to middle America is--look out:

Today's Democrat Party doesn't want to improve life for middle America. They prefer that all of us in flyover country keep quiet, and let them decide how we should live our lives.

They want to tell you when you can go to work. When your kids can go to school. They want to tax your job out of existence, and then send you a government check for unemployment.

They want to tell you what kind of car you can drive, what sources of information are credible. And even how many hamburgers you can eat.

They want to defund the police and take away your second amendment rights. The want free health care for illegal immigrants. Yet they offer no protection at all for unborn Americans.

They want to pack the Supreme Court with liberals intent on eroding our constitutional rights. And they want to codify all this by making the swamp itself, Washington, D.C., America's 51st state. With two more liberal senators, we cannot undo the damage they've done.

Now you understand why Democrats spent an entire week telling us about who Joe Biden is, not what he intends to do.
