A Video Message from Sen. Ben Sasse: Why We Celebrate Inauguration Day

Ben Sasse (R), the junior Senator from Nebraska wants Americans to know why we should celebrate this Inauguration Day, and every inauguration day. Sen. Sasse explains the revolutionary nature of our very structure of government. How each election is one to celebrate, even when the results don’t go our way. The liberty-minded congressman shared this video via his twitter account.

Watch. It’s worth it. Trust me.

Sasse explains our inaugurations weren’t always guaranteed to be a peaceful transfer of power. Specifically, detailing the strained exchange between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Sen. Sasse reminds all of us that we’re lucky to live in a country that changes leadership every four years, by the will of the people at the ballot box, not by the blood of our citizens.

Revolutionary indeed.
