"Service"

As a combat vet who watched some of the bravest people I've ever met sacrifice everything in service to this country, Madison Cawthorn lying about getting into the Naval Academy really pisses me off.

And I know I'm not alone. Chip in now and let's get this liar out of our seat in Congress.

There's a reason we use the word "service" when we're talking about time spent in the armed forces. Putting on the uniform means you're ready to sacrifice: to devote time, hard work, and – if necessary – your life to uphold the ideals of this country and ensure freedom and safety for everyone who calls it home.

That's why I joined the Army, and it's why my brothers and sisters in uniform deserve our highest respect and appreciation.

That's also why I'm so disgusted when I hear Madison Cawthorn lie about getting accepted to the Naval Academy – because it shows that he doesn't have the first clue about what it means to put someone or something ahead of himself.

He doesn't understand what it means to serve.

Cawthorn lies about the Naval Academy because he thinks it makes him look like someone who would sacrifice for the good of our nation. He thinks people will see him as selfless and honorable.

But lying about service doesn't make Madison Cawthorn selfless. It makes him a liar.

Trying to steal honor that isn't his doesn't make him honorable. It makes him a thief.

But let's be clear: I'm not running for Congress because Cawthorn dishonors my friends or the armed forces. This campaign isn't about revenge. Like I said, this is about service – and North Carolinians deserve a Congressman who expects to serve the people of North Carolina, and not the other way around.

Join the fight. Contribute today to build this movement.

Let's go,

Josh
