Discover McCain-Palin reason to Stand up and Fight!
I am thrilled. I am honored. I am energized. I am an American and proud of it! I am ready to fight with McCain-Palin, because the change they are going to bring to Washington business-as-usual, do-nothing-Congress, pork-barrel-spending, free-loafing-unemployment; is the change America needs!
Here are some exciting quotes and thoughts given by McCain in his history-making acceptance speech, tonight, September 4, 2008 at the RNC:
He intends to earn his trust -
We are fellow Americans and that is an association to me that means more than others...
Let there be no doubt, we're going to win the election!
We are going to reach out our hand to any willing patriot to get the country back on the road to peace and prosperity.
Please don't be diverted by the ground noise and the static. America wants us to stop yelling at each other.
We need government to stand on our side and not in our way.
Governor Palin, she stands up for what's right and she doesn't tell anyone to sit down!
I am very proud to have introduced her to the country, but I can't wait to introduce her to Washington...change is coming.
We have the strength, courage and backbone to keep our word.
A maverick is someone who marches to the beat of his own drum. What is means is I understand who I work for....I work for you!
I will make pork bill spenders famous and you will know their names!
I would rather loose an election than to see my country loose a war.
I don't mind a good fight - for reasons only known to God I have had my fair share - it matters less that you can fight, what you fight for is the real test. I fight for you!
Republicans - we were elected to change Washington, but we let Washington change us. We lost their trust when we valued power....
...Like Lincoln, Roosevelt and Reagen ... we are going to get back to the basics!
We are all God's children and we are all Americans.
We need government that doesn't make your choice for you but makes sure you can make more choices for yourself...like increasing the child tax deduction from $3,500 to $7,000.
Our unemployment system was designed for the economy of the 1950s....government assistance for unemployment will change...using Community Colleges government will help make the pay difference from the job you lost to the job you take while in Community College to change to an employable career.
Education is the civil rights issue of this century! Equal access to public education..empower parents with choice. I want schools to answer to parents and students. And when I am president they will! We will help back teachers find another line of work.
We are going to stop sending $700 billion to countries that don't like us too much!!!!
It is an ambitious plan but Americans are ambitious people. We will show the world that we will lead! We face our problems with confidence, wisdom and resolve. We cannot turn our eye from evil.
We face many threats in this world. I am not afraid of them! I am prepared for it.
I hate war! It is terrible beyond imagination.
I was blessed by misfortune...
McCain shared how he changed from a self-serving young man to a man that would resolve to serve his country...when he wouldn't leave imprisonment after it was offered to him because his captors found out he was the son of an Admiral...he was tortured endlessly for hours...he was a broken man..after he was finally dumped back into his cell box a fellow captured solider tapped on the walls and told him..."Get back up and fight again"... for the men with him and our country because they had fought for him.
Then McCain continued....
Our country is just not a place but its an idea - I was was not my own man anymore, I was my countries. My country saved me and I can not forget it. And I will serve/fight for Her as long as I have breathe, so help me God!
Nothing brings greater happiness in your life than to serve a cause higher than yourself....
Every American...Fight with me!
Fight for what is right for our Country!
Stand up for each other!
Stand up and fight!
We never quit, we never give up!
We are Americans!
We never hide from History....We make History...
God bless you and God bless America!
I didn't know John McCain...I didn't know Cindy McCain...I didn't know Sarah Palin. And I didn't know their families. I know them now! This has been the very best National Convention I have ever seen...in over 20 years of watching them, watching both the RNC and the DNC.
I pledge to McCain, Palin, and our Country to "Stand up and fight!" with them for our country!
What about you...are you ready to answer the call...are you ready to serve a cause higher than yourself...are you ready to stand up and fight for what is right for our Country? I encourage you, I implore you....Stand up and fight!
God loves us all...people of all Nations. God loves and blesses America, and we need to stand up and do what is right. We are only blessed as a Nation because we were founded on God's principles...Jesus' principles, the standards of the Bible. We have been pushed around. We have been losing the fight. We have been knocked down in many social, economic and political arenas in America. It is time for us to get back up! It is time for us to fight again for our country, because our countrymen fought for us! Freedom is never free! We need to stand up and fight and be willing to pay the price!
We cannot forget our History...we cannot allow altered "evil-America" history to continue to be taught in our schools...We need to fight for Her! America need us! We live in a country that gives us freedom to worship, to raise our families to know and love God. So I will serve Her! As long as I have breathe, I will stand up and fight for Her and do all I can to return Her to Her Biblical standards and foundation!
Are you ready? The time has come...Are you ready to stand up and fight?
