It's become apparent to Ministry's AL JOURGENSEN that the kids from Parkland, FL's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High are paving the way to putting our country back on a course of sanity and true democracy. "Voters do count and what these young students have done is to stimulate the survival mode of our spinless politicians at hyper speed with the one thing they understand - money," said Jourgensen. "The money that they accept quid pro quo for their silence and inaction when it comes to gun control, that same money that will dry up from party donors' bottom line losses that will now occur with the klieg lights fully on their corporate shareholders. I fully support the tactics taken by these kids because THEY are the ones who will REALLY make America great again."
