[on Nov 6:] We will not just select the President who will guide us; we will also choose between two distinct paths and destinies for our nation.
So many of the big issues in this campaign turn on our understanding of the Constitution and how it was meant to guide the life of our nation.
The belief that we are all created equal, that we are endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights – these are not relics from another time, they reflect truths that are valid in every era.
The framework of law created by the Declaration and the Constitution is the source of our greatness.
It has generated unparalleled opportunity and prosperity.
Our Founders understood this, which is why they created a system of government that is limited.
This President is moving us away from our Founders’ vision.
Today, I want to talk about this administration’s assault on our freedoms – our economic freedom, our religious freedom, and our personal freedom.
And I want to share my plans to return America to the first principles of our founding.
The American economy is fueled by freedom. Free people and their free enterprises are what drive our economic vitality.
By their very nature, taxes reduce our freedom. …Today, our freedom is never safe – because unelected, unaccountable regulators are always on the prowl. …
Under President Obama, bureaucrats are insinuating themselves into every corner of our economy, undermining economic freedom. …
This administration thinks our economy is struggling because the stimulus was too small. The truth is we’re struggling because our government is too big. …
Instead of expanding the government, I will shrink it.
Instead of raising taxes, I will cut them.
Instead of adding regulations, I will scale them back.
The answer for a weak economy is not more government. It is more freedom!
The right to bear arms is so plainly stated, so unambiguous, that liberals have a hard time challenging it directly. Instead, they’ve been employing every imaginable ploy to restrict it. …
We need a President who will enforce current laws, not create new ones that only serve to burden lawful gun owners.
We need a President who will dismantle current, stupid laws that only serve to burden lawful gun owners.
In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of re-election. As he told the Russian president last month when he thought no one else was listening, after his re-election he’ll have a lot more, quote, “flexibility” to do what he wants. I’m not exactly sure what he meant by that, but looking at his first three years, I have a very good idea. …
As President, I will uphold the rule of law – and put America back on the path toward the Founders’ vision. I don’t want to transform America; I want to return America to the principles that made this nation great.
Our Founders began this great American Experiment. They created a nation conceived in liberty and they entrusted us with the duty to preserve it and defend it.
…Americans want a leader who will tell them the truth, who will live with integrity, and who will preserve this great nation – and protect our Constitution.
We have a sacred duty to restore the promise of America. And we will do it. We will do it because we believe in America.
Sounds good. We’ll see if he can keep it up…
