The Death of Jesse Helms

Saying Goodbye to Jesse Helms

Rest in Peace, Jesse Helms.

Former Republican Senator Jesse Helms died Friday morning. He was 86. He was a leading conservative on Capitol Hill, and the liberals hated him.

He was a five-term senator from North Carolina who formerly chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and often railed against Communism, liberalism and big government.

He was a proponent of school prayer. Helms was an opponent of abortion and gay rights groups.

A true patriot, Jesse Helms was, by all accounts, a kind person who treated everyone with the respect they were due as human beings, no matter what theirs, or his, political positions were.

God bless you, Senator, and welcome home.
