Wonder what you would find if you frisked CPAC today?
Answer: A great speech by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio.
Marco Rubio opened the 2010 CPAC Conference today in Washington DC. Rubio is a great conservative that is running against RINO Governor Charlie Crist in the Florida U.S. Senate Republican primary. So far, Marco Rubio is one of the few political candidates Frisk A Liberal endorses for the upcoming 2010 elections.
Memorable quotes I chose from today’s CPAC speech:
America wants leaders that will come to Washington DC and work together to get things done, but that comes with a very important caveat: It depends what they’re trying to do. If they are working to lower tax rates; simplify tax codes. They want us to work together. If they are working to take control of a runaway federal debt and annual deficits. They want us to work together. If they are working to defeat radical Islam and the threat it poses through terrorism. They want us to work together! However, if the goal is to abandon America’s free enterprise economy, convert America into a submissive member of the international community, and if the goal is not to fix America but to change America… Then they want leaders that are going to come up here and fight it every single step of the way!
Americans chose individual liberty instead of the false security of government. Americans chose a limited government that exists to protect our rights, not to grant them. Americans chose a free enterprise system designed to provide a quality of opportunity, not compel a quality of results. That is why this is the only place in the world where you can open up a business in the spare bedroom of your home. That is why this is the only place in the world where a company that started as an idea drawn out on a cocktail napkin can one day be publicly traded on Wall Street. That is why this is the only country in the world where today’s employee is tomorrow’s employer. And yet, there are still people in American politics who – for some reason – cling to this belief that America is better off adopting the very economic policies of nations whose people immigrate here from there.
