To help Republican members of Congress and candidates
communicate through speeches crafted with clarity, cogency,
The founding of the
United States was truly revolutionary. For the first time in
history, with the Declaration of Independence, our nation
recognized that our rights - including "Life, Liberty, and the
pursuit of Happiness" - were unalienable and endowed by
our Creator, not by our government. The Constitution then
established a Republic designed to preserve these individual
freedoms; and it has endured longer than any other,
because our founders understood that there is an
inverse relationship between the power of the government and
the power of the individual.
The survival of the
United States has never been assured. Our history is proof
that we will remain free only as long as we stay true to the
principles of our founding. Today, we are at war with
Islamic jihadists, who seek the weapons to destroy our
society. Our government is bankrupted by decades of
overspending on 'cradle to grave' redistributionist programs
that punish success and reward failure, fostering dependence
rather than independence. Our system of public education,
controlled by the teachers' unions, is indoctrinating rather
than educating our children.
Liberty still unites us as Americans, but not all of us
believe our liberty is under attack. If we lose this
struggle, we will have consigned ourselves to despotism.
Government will not only confiscate most of our pay, it will
determine practically everything we do in our daily lives -
from what car we drive to what food we eat to whom we choose
as a doctor. Government will become our master rather than
If Republicans are going to build upon the momentum of our
recent electoral triumphs, we must spell out in concrete
terms what common-sense conservative policies can do to
solve the 'kitchen table' problems families face every day.
It's not sufficient, for example, to say that tax cuts will
stimulate the economy. We need to delineate more clearly how
across-the-board tax cuts directly result in job creation.
I had the opportunity a few years ago to visit with former
presidential speechwriter Jamie Humes. Jamie told me a good
speech has visual images that elicit emotion. He said a
speech should be lyrical - more like a song than an ordinary
article or editorial. An obvious example of this is
Churchill's famous line "From Stettin in the Baltic to
Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended
across the continent ..." I have taken the advice to heart.
Conservatism means staying true to the principles upon which
our country was founded. I believe we can reintroduce
Americans to America by reminding them the Constitution
limits government power in order to secure the blessings of
liberty. It has become my life's ambition to help
Republicans convey that message to the American people.
