Marco Rubio: A government that promises…

While on Twitter I saw several live Tweets about Marco Rubio speaking to “a business class at Catholic University.” Here are the news stories I read about his speech from links referenced in the tweets: 

Two very different headlines, each designed to grab the attention of the reader, but my problem was with the reactions to Marco’s speech from, again, two very different headlines. 

The Washington Post article is the first one that I read. It made blood shoot out of my eyes. On Twitter I tagged Dan Holler, who works for Rubio, asking him for the link to the actual copy of the speech. Dan was great to lead me to this link that was posted on Rubio’s Senate page and from that press release you can go read Rubio as the original source, not merely how his words were interpreted. 

Reading the Daily Signal article did make me feel a little better, not much. Reading Marco’s speech, well, if nails on a chalkboard bothered me, yeah, that is the kind of feeling I would describe from this particular speech writing of Rubio.

Feel free to download Rubio’s speech and read along as you watch him give the speech below. You might jot down thoughts and questions in the margin of the Rubio script as you listen to him.

I have a lot more to say on this. My problem is that watching the video of the speech still make blood shoot out of my eyes. I have to cool my jets and go through it all again so I can write without screaming on the page. I have to check my emotional response to go through what really irritated me, and still irritates me about that which I am hearing come out of Marco’s Mouth.

Day after day I watch Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz fight the good fight to defend and preserve our Constitutional rights. They care. They are compassionate. They are betrayed by Progressives in the Republican Party frequently enough that there are days when I think I have nothing good to say about what is happening in Washington, DC.

For a break in discussing how rotten I believe the stinkin’ PRL and party currently are, here is something positive: I love listening to David Azerrad just like I love listening to Mike Lee and Ted Cruz. 

From 2013, The American Dream

And there you have it. 

  1. Opportunity for all. 
  2. Favoritism to none.
  3. Get Government OUT of the way.
  4. Make Government SMALL Again. 
  5. The Law of Abundance
  6. Work

Push back the narrative that government is the reason for your existence. Push back the narrative that government “invests” in you. Stop listening to the lies that government is here to take care of you and your family and push back the subversive and harmful narrative that you are unable to think or care for yourself. 

Remember the principles upon which America was founded and reclaim your liberty, your right to pursue happiness without oppression from those seeking to harm and degrade your ability to work and succeed and stand on your own two feet.
