of speech by Mia Love:
me tell you about the America I know. My parents immigrated to the U.S.
with ten dollars in their pocket, believing that the America they had
heard about really did exist. When times got tough they didn't look to
Washington, they looked within.
So the America I came to know was centered in personal responsibility and filled with the American dream.
America I know is grounded in the determination found in patriots and
pioneers, in small business owners with big ideas, in the farmers who
work in the beauty of our landscape, in our heroic military and
It's in every child who looks at the seemingly impossible and says, "I can do that." That is the America I know!
Obama's version of America is a divided one—pitting us against each
other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies
have failed! We are not better off than we were 4 years ago, and no
rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that.
Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling in 2012.
American Dream is our story. It is a story of human struggle, standing
up and striving for more. It's been told for over 200 years with small
steps and giant leaps; from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream; and
the bravery of the greatest generation, to the entrepreneurs of today.
This is our story. This is the America we know because we built it.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan we can restore the America we know and love.
The world will know it, our children will tell it and our grandchildren
will possess it for years to come! God bless America. Add
