I speak to you tonight from Washington, D.C. The state of our economy is tenuous but our people remain the greatest example of freedom and prosperity the world has ever known.
People say America is exceptional. I agree, but its not the complexion of our skin or the twists in our DNA that make us unique. America is exceptional because we were founded upon the notion that everyone should be free to pursue life, liberty, and happiness.
For the first time in history, men and women were guaranteed a chance to succeed based NOT on who your parents were but on your own initiative and desire to work.
We are in danger, though, of forgetting what made us great. The President seems to think the country can continue to borrow $50,000 per second. The President believes that we should just squeeze more money out of those who are working.

Course Big Media completely ignored him.
Now they’re showing Frank Luntz with his herd of moderate morons who want open borders and mo money fo schools.
Of course, if you hadn’t heard from big media, and most of both parties, the tea party is dead. Their half right from my perspective. I’m dead set, on sending their buts home, yes it will take time. I don’t really care.
Just found the vid.
My response (although I didn’t watch)
The federal government should not be doing your job, your city’s job, your county’s job, your states job... it should be doing only what the Constitution assigns it. When your country is bankrupt you do not expand the government, and have its least productive sector sucking up more wealth out of the economy. Government spending does not help the economy, it hinders it. It is called a mis-allocation of resources.
The government cannot spend its way out of debt. The government cannot tax our way to prosperity. The government is the least efficient entity to be doing anything other than the most basic role assigned to it: leave us alone to improve our own lives, to work our own jobs and for us to make our own decisions.
Only the Blaze carried it live. All networks ignored the Tea Party response to the Kenyan King. And that includes
My pal Cal gives his response.
PLEASE RUN—for anything, immediately. That’s as sweet as it gets.
Perfect. The last rational man.

Ron Paul was carried on CSPAN though. That’s something.
Amazing, isn’t it? Coolidge’s message still rings true. The only thing that has changed (dramatically off the scale) are the amounts.
Can anyone point me to a video of Rand’s speech?
He called $7.5 billion in federal spending an astounding sum.
He’d have a stroke today.
