Running down and accusing America. How awful we are!
here's the hope?
Did you feel uplifted? I didn't.
You blew it, Barry. Our nation has done more for herself and for the world than any other that ever existed has, and you blame us for not doing enough for either.
We've crushed al-Qaeda in Iraq, no thanks to you and your
party blind followers.
The bottom one percent in America have more opportunities and more freedom and more hope than the upper class in most other countries. Yet your economy-crushing taxes and trade-destroying restrictions would ensure they both wind up with less.
We have the strongest and most resilient free market the human race has even seen. Yet you would command and control it until it weakens with practically no hope of recovery.
Since our founding as a nation, we've done more and progressed further in every realm of human endeavor than any other people have over any 200-year period in their history.
Technology, medicine, civil rights, strong but limited government, and more. The rest of the world has turned to us for the very best examples of how those are done. And the rest of the world will continue to do so, unless you get your way and impose on us the most mammoth government we've ever known — a government that interferes with and discourages and forcefully represses our self-determination, our initiative, our incentive to be innovative and do better.
As our nation's first president said, government is not reason. It is not eloquence. It is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.
Despite your assertions to the contrary, the smartest, most capable people in our nation are not government officials.
We don't need you or anyone else in government to tell us what to hope or how to change. Never have. We've always been smart enough to figure it out for ourselves without such "help."
What we need is for all of you to shut up for a change. Stop making speeches accusing us of being an awful people. Instead start listening to what we have to say and — I know this is the most difficult for you and your fellow fanatics to truly fathom — do what we tell you to do.
You and everyone else in government serve us, not the other way around.
But listening to your
acceptance speech accusations and blame, it's clear now that's not a principle you know or ever even thought you knew.
