I get the feeling (and it’s a hopeful feeling) that I might have seen a future President of the United States enter the national consciousness when this video went viral.
It’s 10-year-old fourth grader John Provenzano, who gave an impressive speech before his school board in Marin County, Florida, pointing out the illogical mask mandate rules, the health problems they’re causing, and the hypocritical ways in which the mandate is being enforced, and pleading for an end to it. In a quote that would make the Founders proud, he declared, “Breathing freely doesn’t seem like something we should have to ask any other people for permission for.”
Unfortunately, the board didn’t have the wisdom of this 10-year-old and voted to keep the mandate in place until summer school starts.
For those who think John was just reading a statement written by his parents, check out his terrific appearance last night on Tucker Carlson’s show. I could name a few Congress members that I’d love to see him replace right now.
