Eric Cantor delivers keynote speech:

“Deficits, spending, higher taxes, energy security, health care – all of these are important. But we have a greater challenge before us. It’s the challenge of our generation. It’s all about what kind of country we want to be. Either we become a country we hardly recognize or one that will fulfill the American ideal and continue to be the most secure, most prosperous, freest country in the the history of the world. That is the challenge of our time – the challenge for our generation.

There’s a reason you don’t see people in America running to escape and climbing into boats seeking refuge in some other land. It’s the same reason Canada doesn’t find the need to erect a border fence to keep out unwelcomed Americans. Because America is the place of hope and opportunity – the only land where everything is still possible.

But when you look around, there’s a lot of fear and uncertainty sweeping across America. Many folks in Washington have reacted by trying to seize more control over the economy and our lives. The agenda they propose takes shape in the form of cap and trade, card check, excessive spending and the government takeover of health care and the auto industry.

They want to replace free markets with layers and layers of bureaucracy. They want to tell you how to run your small business through misguided tax policy and unprecedented mandates and regulations. Instead of doing everything we can to encourage job creators, they have proposed to hit them with higher taxes. They stand ready to seize control of 17% of the US economy and call it Health Care Reform.

Washington needs to realize that we don’t need more and bigger government. It needs a strong dose of good old fashioned fiscal discipline. Simply put, we have to stop borrowing and spending so much money. As government shrinks, the private sector will grow, creating droves of new jobs.

As we head into November, we have the opportunity to stop the recklessness in Washington and put America back on the path to prosperity. But we have to step up and seize the moment. It is really up to us. We have to engage our neighbors and our friends to join us in this mission.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
