Thanks bd476. For a corrupt drunken philanderer and election cheat, this is a great finish:


A President does not shape a new and personal vision of America.

He collects it from the scattered hopes of the American past.

It existed when the first settlers saw the coast of a new world, and when the first pioneers moved westward.

It has guided us every step of the way.

It sustains every President. But it is also your inheritance and it belongs equally to all the people that we all serve.

It must be interpreted anew by each generation for its own needs; as I have tried, in part, to do tonight.

It shall lead us as we enter the third century of the search for “a more perfect union?

This, then, is the state of the Union: Free and restless, growing and full of hope.

So it was in the beginning.

So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith.

It is becoming clear that we don't need and can't afford a “President” and a national Congress. One size does NOT fit all and we have states to protect us as citizens. Abolish the Federal government and return power to the people through strong state government. If not, expect this thing to disintegrate ala 1860. Enough is enough. Pelosi will NOT ruin our lives and prosperity.
