Tipping Point

"I believe our country has reached a tipping point. It is time for a national reckoning. Are we the country of our founders? Do we believe in unalienable rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Are we the country that guarantees my right to fail, without which there would be no opportunity to succeed? Or, are we a country that looks to Washington DC to solve all of our basic problems? Are we a country that will continue down its long path of unsustainable spending?"

"We need to decide that now, this is why I am running. We won't permanently solve our substantial problems until these fundamental questions are answered."
