Former Navy Seal and now Congressman from the State of Montana Ryan Zynke is the Veterans Voice.
NAVY SEAL COMMANDER RYAN ZINKE CONFIRMS: Thinking of Making A RUN FOR SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE October 14,2015
The Speaker is about leadership and not policy and we’re at a point in our nation’s history where we’ve had a Speaker resign, we’ve had a presumptive Speaker resign and quite frankly we’re facing what I think is a leadership crisis. In our country’s history, there have been other freshmen Speakers—though it has been a long time. But it isn’t about policies. It’s about getting the Congress to do their duty: And that’s the defend the principles that made this country strong and defending the Constitution. I’ve taken an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. It’s time to rise and put our country first, and yourself second. It’s about leadership. We’re looking at it. Our phones are ringing off the hook because I think America wants something different. I haven’t decided, but what I have decided is that Congress better do our duty and defend our values of this country.
Zinke said the Speaker of the House is a “representative” of the entire body, and an “orator of what America should be,” adding that it is an “enormous responsibility” and “I haven’t retreated from battle and neither should America.”
“Americans are frustrated and they look at their government and it’s not doing what we should be doing,” Zinke said. “They want a better future and they want America to be strong and prosperous.”
