What an amazing mission you and I are on. What great ideas we uphold -- the legacy
of the most important thinkers of liberty in our country's history, and the
most important doers of liberty in America. At the top of that list are the donors
and volunteers of this campaign.
I could spend all my time thanking personally you and everyone who has done so much
for our country's future, and not scratch the surface of what justice demands.
But I want you to know how much I owe you, and everyone dedicated to the real America.
You and I know our real country -- the America of the Constitution and the Bill
of Rights, of economic, civil, and personal liberty, of strong families and communities,
of great businesses and professions, of strong peace and low taxes and sound money-all
of which are under assault by the politicians who occupy our nation's capital.
-- I want to change all that. Together, we can restore our constitutional republic,
and oust the mountebanks who violate the ideals of the Founders with income taxes,
Federal Reserve inflation, deficit spending, preemptive wars, torture, secret prisons,
and abolition of habeas corpus.
How thrilling too are all the great Independent efforts in this cause, involving
so many tens of thousands of patriots. Of course, since they are Independent, the
election laws to do not allow me to coordinate with them in any way. But I will
mention that this Sunday, I am really going to enjoy my tea at a party!
