Glenn Jacobs feels the siren song of politics, not because he enjoys politics mind you, but because he feels someone has to do something about our massive government. Jacobs is a citizen who cares deeply about our country and is tired of watching the government’s unrestrained growth. If you’ve never heard of Glenn Jacobs you wouldn’t be alone–Jacobs is much better known as the WWE wrestler Kane.
Jacobs considers himself a constitutional conservative and there has recently been an upswell of support trying to draft him into Tennessee’s upcoming Senate race. Conservatives in Tennessee and around the country are getting tired of the work RINO’s like Lamar Alexander have been doing to undermine conservative beliefs. For his part, Jacobs isn’t saying yet whether he will try to primary Alexander next year, but he’s at least considering the idea very seriously.
The Republican Party currently has the most liberal President ever to take office in the White House, and yet we have members of our own Party siding with the Democrat agenda. It’s enough to make folks who’d never have thought in their wildest dreams that they might one day be politically active go out and pursue politics. However, men and women just like Jacobs are rising up all around our country to take a stand for conservative, small government, pro-business principles.
This is what the Founders imagined when they developed our foundation of our government. Citizen representatives, not a permanent political class. Farmers, lawyers, teachers, businessmen, doctors, and writers representing their local constituents for a period of years, then returning to their homes to continue their real careers. Instead we have men and women training to become politicians – spending their lives constantly campaigning so they can keep their “job.” These people aren’t “civil servants”, these people are parasites.
Jacobs has made a living wrestling world class athletes, perhaps he can take the toughness he has developed in that grueling sport and use it in an even tougher environment… Washington, DC.
