Here we are. Election Day. D-Day for FREEDOM.
The choice we make today will be perhaps the most profound public choice of our lifetimes. It will demonstrate what kind of country we are....and what kind of country we will be. There is nothing more sacred in this American life than the vote you hold in your hands today. Love of country is a profound and powerful thing.
The Founding Fathers feared but anticipated a time when all three formal branches of government would be corrupted by dark and malign forces. Knowing human nature, evil ideologies, and how they can destroy even the most well-designed systems of government, they gave us an insurance policy. They vested the ultimate power with us, because they knew that the day America teetered on the brink, we---American patriots generations down the road---would ride to the rescue. They knew that we would fight. We would fight for the Constitution, fight to break free from the bondage of statism, fight for American exceptionalism, fight for this great and grand experiment in human liberty.
In 1780, Founding Father Samuel Adams was speaking directly to us when he said:
"If ever the Time should come, when vain and aspiring
Men shall possess the highest Seats in Government,
our Country will stand in Need of its experienced
Patriots to prevent its Ruin."
That time is now.
We are the experienced Patriots.
And today, we will take the first step toward preventing America's ruin and restoring her to the greatness she has earned and which she so deserves.
We are the cavalry.
