One of the highlight's from the GOP convention this week was the speech given by Mia Love. Born in New York, her parents immigrated from Haiti in 1970.
Currently she is the Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah (first black mayor in Utah). She will be running for the House of Representatives in Utah, this fall 4th district.
In my opinion, the left secretly despise anyone who is black and Conservative. It is their worst nightmare. So when you see a female, black conservative who is articulate and then brings up people like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King as references to her point; then you know that the Democrats are going mad.
Well, her speech was scintillating on Tuesday night and I have highlighted the best lines.
Let 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.The 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 Olympians. It’s in every child who looks at the seemingly impossible and says, "I can do that." That is the America I know!President 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.
The 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.
I urge you all to watch her speech at the convention, forward to everyone and ensure that she is elected this fall.
Conservatism is well and truly alive!
