A look back...challenges ahead...

I have attached a link to this is a long piece, about 14 is WELL WORTH the time to view. This is Florida Senator Marco Rubio's recent address to the US Senate about the challenges our nation faces heading into 2012.

What sort of country do you (we) want? As Senator Rubio says, do you want to be a nation of "haves" and "soon to haves," as has been our rallying cry for the last 200-plus years...or a nation of "haves" and "have nots," clearly outlined, defined and illustrated (further) by a meddlesome federal government? The choice, especially this November, is clear!!!

No, this is NOT partisan sniping. This is not, "ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto (or Mitt). We might get in trouble!" We don't want the burden of responsibility for ourselves and our families. Well, as the late great John Blutarsky of "Animal House" fame said, "WELL KISS MY (BLEEP) FROM NOW ON! NOT ME! I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS!" Yes, I WANT the responsibility of taking care of ME and MY FAMILY!!!

Listen to the speech...and then you want a country, flawed though it may be, of "haves" and "soon-to-haves" or a country of "haves" and "have nots?" Unfortunately it may have already been decided for you...but there is still hope (and change)...however only if Marco Rubio is nominated for and subsequently becomes our next Vice President in 2012...weird, huh? Yeah...
