6:00 pm
in washington they know they want the borders secure but they refuse to do it but you and i can, and we will secure our borders. [ cheers and applause ] finally, they say we can't really repeal or replace all of obamacare, but i'm the only candidate who has written a replacement plan a free market plan, that focuses on reducing cost. we can repeal obamacare and we will repeal obamacare. [ cheers and applause ] today's republican party in washington, d.c. has been beaten into submission, is increasingly afraid to speak the truth. it's time to say what everybody's already thinking.
6:01 pm
the emperors in washington, they're not wearing any clothes. in case it's not clear right now, i am running for president without permission from headquarters in washington, d.c. [ cheers and applause ] i am tanned, rested and ready for this fight. here's the truth about most politicians. they're selfish. they're followers, not leaders. they worry more about their own fate than the country's fate. they take polls, figure out where the public is headed. they run out front, they pretend to be leading the parade.
6:02 pm
it's easy to be a popular politician. don't rock the boat. kiss a bunch of baby, cut ribbons, don't make big changes, but i'm not going to take the easy way out. if you want somebody who is just going to pretend that everything is fine just make some small tweaks, then you want somebody else. i'll make this promise to you, i will never leave from behind. i know some believe i talk about my faith too much but i will not be silenced. i will not be silenced in order to meet their expectations of political correctness.
6:03 pm
they don't seem to accept that idea you can be both intellectual and christian. they can't fathom the notion you can be both smart and conservative. they need to get out more. there's a big country out here with millions of americans who believe in god and are not ashamed to say so. i'd be wary of a president who didn't seek wisdom from the almighty. i don't know about you. i've met many smart people who lack wisdom, yet christianity it is under assault today in america. the liberals they have
6:04 pm
forgotten their history. religious liberty is not some quaint notion from the past. it is fundamental to our freedom. that's why there's protection in the first amendment to the constitution. i'm going to say it slowly so even hillary clinton can understand this. america may not create religious liberty. religious liberty created the united states of america. and it's time we stopped trying to divide ourselves against each other. hillary clinton is always trying to divide us by ethnicity, by gender, by economic status. i don't know about you but for me i'm sick and tired of people
6:05 pm
dividing americans. and i am done with all this talk about hyphen-ated americans. we are not indian-americans, african-americans, rich americans or poor americans. we are all americans. and while i'm at it here's another thing you're not allowed to say but i'm going to say it anyway. we cannot allow people to immigrate to our country so they can use our freedoms to undermine our freedoms. that is exactly what has happened in europe, where they have second, third generations of immigrants who refuse to embrace the values and culture
6:06 pm
of the countries they have moved into. we must not let that happen here. it is not unreasonable to demand if you want to immigrate to america you must do so legally. you must be ready and willing to embrace our values, learn english and roll up your sleeves and get to work. [ cheers and applause ] now let's do something different, let's tell the truth about our political situation. that's right, it is a mess. republicans must stop being afraid to lose. if we try to hide who we are again, we will lose again. you've heard jeb bush say that
6:07 pm
we need to be willing to lose the primary in order to win the general election. we're going to help them do that. let me translate that. i'm going to translate that political speak into plain english. what jeb bush is saying is that we need to hide our conservative eye keels but the truth is if we go down that road again we will lose again. let's do something new. let's endorse our own principles for a change. let's boldly speak the truth without fear. [ cheers and applause ] as republicans, we've already tried to appease the left. to make the media like us
6:08 pm
better, to talk in politically correct language to hide some of our beliefs by calling them distractions we've tried to mask our conservative ideals, and we have failed. every republican will tell you they are for school choice, shrinking government, cutting the government workforce and getting rid of common core. but talk is cheap. talk is just talk. i haven't just talked about these things, i've actually done these things. every republican will say they will fight to protect the unborn, repeal obamacare, secure the border and describe isis. i won't simply talk about these things, i will get these things done. it's time to level with the american people. this president and his apprentice in waiting hillary clinton are leading america down
6:09 pm
the path to destruction. economically, culturally, and internationally. for the most devastating thing they try to do, is redefine the american dream. instead of their dream being to have opportunity and freedom to control your own destiny to make your own way, their dream is for the government to take care of you, to make people dependent on the government. we want to guarantee quality of opportunity. they want to guarantee equality of outcomes. simple fact is they are trying to turn the american dream into socialism. now the folks in washington they may call that the american dream. out here in america in the real world, we call that the european nightmare. to be clear, we're not simply trying to reclaim the past.
6:10 pm
no, quite to the contrary we are laying our claim on the future a future where america leads the world. this is not a pause any of us can resist. it is our destiny. it is our mission. as america goes so goes the world. we are the light of freedom in a dark world. it's time we started acting like it. i will not be intimidated from talking about the fact that radical islam is evil and it must be destroyed. containment is a strategy for losers. but as general george s. patton famously observed, americans
6:11 pm
play to win all the time. americans don't play to lose. president obama has it wrong. secretary clinton has it wrong. our allies need to trust us. our enemies need to fear us. it is time we play to win again! [ cheers and applause ] as president, i will have four objectives. i will secure our border ss. i will replace obamacare with a health care system that focuses on reducing cost and restoring freedom. i will grow the private sector economy by shrinking the size scope and reach of the federal
6:12 pm
government. and i'll rebuild america's defenses and restore our standing on the world stage. i'm not asking you to simply join my campaign. i'm asking you to join a cause. if you're looking for a candidate who will politely manage america's descent into mediocrity mediocrity, i'm not your man but if you are chasing a dream, looking for a land where the people are free, and the opportunities are real i am asking you to believe. my dad told me as a young child that americans can do anything.
6:13 pm
i believed them then and i believe it now. i know in your heart you believe it too. i am asking you to believe again, believe in what we can do believe in what america can do. thank you. may god bless you. may god bless the united states of america!

6:15 pm
republican presidential nomination, speaking to supporters in kenner louisiana this afternoon at the pontchartrain center near new orleans. we'd like to hear what you think about governor bobby jindal joining the presidential race. republicans join us at 202-847-8921. if you're a democrat, 202-748-8920, and independents and all others the number is 202-748-8922. you can tweet us @cspan or go to facebook.com/csan. governor bobby jindal announced earlier today via twitter that he would be in the race. "i'm running for president of the united states of america." meanwhile the "new york times" says that bobby jindal announces his bid for president, joining a crowded field of republican contenders. if we take a look at the "new york times" online, they show
6:16 pm
visually who is running for president and who is not. bobby jindal the 13th republican to declare. as you can see on the right, a crowded number of pictures there of the republicans who have declared, along with several who are probably in the race on the left side of the screen, the four democrats, hillary clinton bernie sanders and others who have declared, and the one or two that may join in the race from the "new york times." let's go right to your calls and see what you think about governor bobby jindal joining the race for president. nancy is in royal oak, michigan, go ahead you're on the air. >> caller: i was interested to know how i might get involved in the campaign for bobby jindal. >> host: you want to join the campaign committee the staff? >> caller: yes i'm here in michigan so anything that i might be able to do, i'm just an average person just looking to try to assist. >> host: well, this is not a
6:17 pm
connection to do that. i'd suggest you contact his staff in louisiana, check out the bobby jindal website. timothy is joining us on the line for democrats. carbondale, illinois, go ahead. >> caller: the way i look at him, you know, the governor is a good governor. he's supposed to speak to american people, what he's requesting to do, instead of attacking a candidate, like hillary, like the president. his opponents continue to do the same thing like that they will lose. it just splits the american people. they have to say their plan what they're going to do instead of attacking other people. >> host: thanks for calling, max joins us from essexville, michigan, go ahead max, you're on the air. >> caller: yes, i just don't understand who he thinks his base is or who would be voting for him. i didn't see anything to differentiate him from any other
6:18 pm
republican candidate. everything that he said sounded the same. it just -- i don't understand why he's running. >> host: all right. thanks for calling. kyle is with us in louisiana, what do you think of your governor running for president? >> caller: yes, i think it's been a disaster, from here, when he entered office in 2008 you know he had a $1.2 billion budget surplus and this past session, you know, he had to deal with a $1.6 billion budget deficit primarily because he chose to balance the budget using one-time money which was equivalent to paying your house note with a credit card, and then he tried to push forward he actually did, you know, with a sort of scheme that called for raising taxes, but the scheme called for putting a tax credit to be more palatable to grover
6:19 pm
norquist and the afc. it's a disaster. he'll do anything to get elected president. he was for the affordable care act before it was affordable care act. when the democrats passed it he became against it. he was for common core, you know, before democrats were for it. now that they're for it he's against this. this guy cannot be trusted. he will say and do anything to get elected, and our state is worse off now than where we were eight years ago when he took the helm as a leader promising to be something different, but he's just more of the same. >> host: thanks for calling. bobby jindal in his second term as the governor of louisiana, served a couple of terms in congress, before that served as the health secretary at the ripe young age of 24 in the state of louisiana. back to your calls. sherman oaks california evelyn is on the line. go ahead. >> caller: hi, c-span and thank
6:20 pm
you so much for c-span. i have been watching all of these candidates from the beginning and this is just an embarrassment for bobby jindal. he's number 13 now? what's the difference? what he's saying that's new? he kept it spicy, he mentioned jeb bush by name. that was spicy, i'll grant him that and i like that. it was downhill from there what is new he's robotic, not that i'm insulting him personally but bring something to the table that is different and unique, or jeb bush the bilingual wonder, is going to run off with this thing. you know it. everyone watching c-span knows it. thank you. >> host: thanks for dog. ivan in missouri, go ahead you're on the line for republicans. >> caller: i've listened to a
6:21 pm
lot of the speeches and i think bobby jindal is would do an excellent job as president, if he follows through on everything that he said he's going to do. i think he's a good candidate. >> host: democratic caller in lake charles, lieu use, your governor running for the republican presidential nomination. devante, go ahead. >> caller: yes, thank you. thank you for taking my call. >> host: sure. >> caller: i'm disappointed to see governor jindal run. he spent almost 145 days last year, this year, too out of the state, he's raised tuition 90%. he's designated higher education with almost half of our state funding cut. he's destroying our health care system and he's been an executor who has been m.i.a., and i think if he wants to talk about real leadership and qualities of a leader for america, i think the first thing he should do
6:22 pm
tomorrow is return back to baton rouge, call our legislator back into special session and fix the state that he's saying is still great because we are hurting so much so i look forward to hearing him talk about his record on the national stage and us in louisiana, stand up and tell america if it was today we would vote for hillary clinton over him if they were both the nominee. >> host: regina is joining us from detroit, republican caller. what do you think? >> caller: hi. i was calling just to say that basically bobby jindal just hearing from everyone else has a bad record, and then everybody are saying the same things. every republican is saying the same thing and one thing i can say obama said what he said and did it. it's not just him. he has other people against him as well. it's not like he said it and didn't go through with it.
6:23 pm
he said what he was going to do and he did it. it's just a lot of republicans were trying to say what they want to say, just trying to go against what democrats are doing and right now republicans are looking sad. >> thanks for calling republican governor bobby jindal the 13th member of the gop to throw his hat in the ring for the 2016 republican presidential nomination and ""new orleans times-picayune" showing it online, "bobby jindal is officially running for president." time for a few more calls. nile in phoenix on the line for democrats. >> caller: hey, thank you for taking my call. i think the governor is being completely irrational if he thinks he ever had a shot of winning. he's taken this weirdly radical religious stance and attempts to draw support from evangelical base completely alienating the moderates and independents in the country. frankly putting it, he's less
6:24 pm
popular than president owebama in louisiana and obama lost the state by 17% in the election. i'm a democrat and will not be voting for him, thank you very much. >> host: another louisiana caller e emily joins us on the line for independents. emily, what do you think of bobby jindal? >> caller: hi, thank you for taking my call. i'm confused. we talked about prosperity, i'm close to 60, that's all i'm going to tell you. i'm a little nervous because my real name was said, for fear of, i don't know just he's not a good governor for the people of louisiana have suffered greatly especially the people that are
6:25 pm
living in poverty and i consider poverty, i don't know what it is now, i never have had it the worst in my life since he's taken office, and very hard to get a job and when he started talking about jeb bush as a non-party i am going to vote for jeb bush now. as this point it's like i wanted to do anything to make my point across to you guys. teen america. this is not a man that's telling the truth, and i thank you so much for your call. >> host: thank you for calling. several callers lined up from louisiana trying to get your thoughts, baton rum, burton is on the line with us for republicans. >> caller: yes, sir, my name is burton evan, i'm from baton rouge and i am a proud supporter of bobby jindal.
6:26 pm
i'm a christian. i believe that he was absolutely right about christians today being under attack, and values, conservative values today being under attack, and i believe that he is a candidate who will stand up for us. they had a caller call about him being against common core and then changing his mind and all this. that's not true. i am friends with some people who know him personally, and they know him as an honest human being, a good, strong christian man. and he is not a liar. he has always stood up for good conservative christian values and he has always stood up for the people of this state and i thank you all for letting me
6:27 pm
call today. >> host: you bet. another caller from baton rouge, tat on the line for democrats. your thoughts? >> caller: hi. i don't know what he's doing. i don't know why he is running when he has no chance of being a republican nominee. he has 31% popularity -- i mean approval in this state because of his common core his religious, and he is trying to cut the budget in louisiana like and i don't sea have enough time to talk about what he's done and what he's done before, whatever. but anyway like this guy -- >> host: sorry, we lost you
6:28 pm
there, tad. jois in jacksonville, arkansas, on the line for republicans. you're next up. >> caller: hi and thank you for taking my call. >> host: certainly. >> caller: i liked everything that bobby jindal had to say. i listened to each thing that he mentioned and i appreciated all of them. i don't live in louisiana so i don't have a particular knowledge about him but he says we've got everything now and have had since 2008. this country is going downhill so fast that i fear we'll be under attack most any time. i don't know if he's the right person for us or not but they certainly don't have the right person thank you. >> host: thanks for calling. in a few minutes we'll replay bobby jip dal's campaign announcement. time for a couple more calls we go to chad in pleasanton,
6:29 pm
california, on the line for democrats. >> caller: hello, thanks for taking my call. my name is thad, not chad. i liked what the governor had to say. i do take into account what the residents of louisiana have to say about him though and i'm not, haven't tracked him well recently but i liked his speech. he's got energy. you listen to a guy like jeb bush it's clear that that guy doesn't really want the job. he's only doing it because he's part of that whole political empire of bush except for the bush empire. he's being pushed into that. that's obvious about jeb. jindal, you can tell this guy is hungry. he wants it. how good he would be i don't know yet. i like walked through a cruise, even though i'm pro-union, retired firefighter and also a
6:30 pm
christian, our country is under attack internationally, and our values are under attack within. i'm glad he's talking about that. somebody needs to talk about it and not be afraid to say it. so we'll see how he does, in the months, but i like what he has to say. i'm against the hyphenated american syndrome that we've been dealing with for 30 years. it's okay for somebody like madonna to mock the church for 30 years. she's gotten away with it but when somebody stands up for christianity, american values they get slammed. >> host: jonathan in north wales, p.a., pennsylvania, all he be the last person to get person to get thoughts on bobby jindal entering the presidential race. >> caller: wow. i was impressed when obama won but disappointed a lot with what he's done and what this guy says is exciting to me.
6:31 pm
i'm not a white person, so it's nothing like that, but most of what jindal said was very inspiring. it's the keendind of thing i've seen with people, my father had third grade education, i got a house on two acres and i see what you have to do. you can't -- you cannot let circumstances and excuses slow you down and that's what this guy sounds like. now, i was taken a little aback by what a lot of people from his state has said, because they live there and so you know i've got to think more about that, but i mean really, a lot of what he said was exciting and i think the man deserves a chance, a listen to, and a close inspection, very close inspection. but i was excited by it. thank you for letting me call.
6:32 pm
>> host: you bet. thanks for calling. thanks for all our callers. bobby jindal announcing that he will be a candidate becoming the 13th republican to throw his hat in the ring for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. bobby jindal in his second term as governor of louisiana. today's announcement coming from kenner, louisiana. we'll have it for you later on in our program schedule on our companion network, c-span but right now here on c-span3 we'll give you another chance to see the presidential campaign announcement. ♪ from the highway my thoughts are still with her ♪ ♪ such a strange combination of a woman and a child ♪ ♪ such a strange situation stopping every five miles come to baton runl ♪ to baton rouge ♪
6:33 pm
>> my name is bobby jindal. i am governor of the great state of louisiana, and i'm running for president of the greatest country in the world, the united states of america! [ cheers and applause ] 44 years ago a young couple who had never before been on an airplane, they left their home on the other side of the world to come to a place called america. they had never seen it. there was no internet to search, but they had heard the legend. there was a place in this world where people were free, and the opportunities were real. they weren't really coming to a
6:34 pm
geographical place. they were coming to an idea, and that idea is america. to them, america represented all that was good in the world, where you could get ahead if you worked hard and played by the rules. place where what matters is the content of your character, not the color of your skin, the zip code you were born in or your family's last name. my dad grew up in a house without electricity, without running water. it was the only person in the family to get past the fifth grade. he and mom came to louisiana because they believed in america and when they got here they found that the legend was true. they found that the people of louisiana accepted them and they found america is indeed the land of the free and the home of the brave. [ cheers and applause ]
6:35 pm
37 years later, my parents' eldest son became governor of louisiana. it was the aftermath of katrina. our economy was locked in a downward spiral. our biggest city was reeling for 25 straight years, more people had left this state than had moved into it. louisiana was in big trouble. so we had to make big changes. we had to believe in louisiana again, and that is exactly what we did. we worked on our ethics laws. we went from one of the worst states to one of the best states in the country. we privatized our outdated government-run hospital system. reformed education with nearly
6:36 pm
100% charter schools in new orleans and now we have statewide school choice, because every child deserves an equal opportunity for a great education. instead of a child following the dollars, we made the dollars follow the child, because we trust the parents, not the bureaucrats, to make the best decisions for their kids. we did what they said could not be done. we shrank our government. we cut our budget by 26%. we cut the number of government bureaucrats by more than 30,000. that wasn't easy. the big government crowd fought us every step of the way. they protested. they filibustered. they even took us to court but in the end we won.
6:37 pm
today we have more people moving into louisiana than out of it. our highest population in history, our kids are coming home. and now we have more people working than at any time in our state's history, with the highest incomes in our state's history. job for your family. paycheck in your mailbox. they're the ultimate proof that your state is doing things right. but of course there's another side to the story. the big government crowd, they hate what we have done. they say that we have cut the government more than anyone. the government budgets are
6:38 pm
always running low on funds with me and the governor's office. my response to the big government crowd is simply this. yes. i am guilty as charged and our state is better off for it today. it's time for the folks in washington to admit the truth. you can't grow the economy and the government at the same time. it is an either/or choice. hillary clinton, she wants to grow the government in washington. [ booing ] >> we want to grow the real economy out here in america. here's the key difference. democrats evaluate success in terms of the prosperity of government. we define success in terms of the prosperity of our people.
6:39 pm
my approach is different from most of the other people running for president. the united states of america was made great by people who get things done, not lots of talk or entertaining speeches. oh, to be sure, there are a lot of great talkers running for president already, but none of them, not one can match our record of actually shrinking the size of government. if great speeches helped our country, we'd be on easy street right now. the guy in the white house today, he's a great talker. we have a bunch of great talkers running for president. we've had enough of talkers. it is time for a do-er. i'm not running for president to be somebody. i'm running for president to do something. oh it's easy to talk about the
6:40 pm
mess that obama has made of our country. every american knows about it. every republican candidate talks about it. that's not even half of what we should expect from our next president. we owe voters more than just a tirade about the problem. we owe them honesty about our solution. i will do the things that you cannot do in washington. i will say the things you cannot say. i served two terms in congress. i can tell you how it works in washington. if you want to be with the cool kids, you want to be liked by the media, if you want to be invited to the right cocktail parties you have to accept there are things in washington you just cannot do.
6:41 pm
they say you cannot reduce the size of government or the number of bureaucrats. you might be able to cut the rate of increase here or there but you cannot actually cut government spending but we can and we will! [ cheers and applause ] they say the $18 trillion national debt can't really be addressed. just a part of doing business so it's better not to talk about it, but we can and we will. they know social security and medicare are going bankrupt, but they're afraid to do anything about it. they denied the math and pretend everything is fine but we can reform and save these programs and we will.
6:42 pm
in washington they say term limits is a quaint idea, that we are naive to believe in. they think we need a permanent class, a ruling class of elites. it's safer to not rock the boat, but we can rock the boat and we will rock the boat! [ cheers and applause ] in washington they know they want the borders secure but they refuse to do it but you and i can, and we will secure our borders. [ cheers and applause ] finally, they say we can't really repeal or replace all of obamacare, but i'm the only candidate who has written a replacement plan, a free market
6:43 pm
plan, that focuses on reducing cost. we can repeal obamacare and we will repeal obamacare. [ cheers and applause ] today's republican party in washington, d.c., has been beaten into submission, is increasingly afraid to speak the truth. it's time to say what everybody's already thinking. the emperors in washington, they're not wearing any clothes. in case it's not clear right now, i am running for president without permission from headquarters in washington, d.c. [ cheers and applause ] i am tanned, rested and ready for this fight.
6:44 pm
here's the truth about most politicians. they're selfish. they're followers, not leaders. they worry more about their own fate than the country's fate. they take polls, figure out where the public is headed. they run out front, they pretend to be leading the parade. it's easy to be a popular politician. don't rock the boat. kiss a bunch of baby, cut ribbons, don't make big changes, but i'm not going to take the easy way out. if you want somebody who is just going to pretend that everything is fine, just make some small tweaks, then you want somebody else. i'll make this promise to you, i will never leave from behind.
6:45 pm
i know some believe i talk about my faith too much but i will not be silenced. i will not be silenced in order to meet their expectations of political correctness. they don't seem to accept that idea you can be both intellectual and christian. they can't fathom the notion you can be both smart and conservative. they need to get out more. there's a big country out here with millions of americans who believe in god and are not ashamed to say so.
6:46 pm
i'd be wary of a president who didn't seek wisdom from the almighty. i don't know about you. i've met many smart people who lack wisdom, yet christianity, it is under assault today in america. the liberals, they have forgotten their history. religious liberty is not some quaint notion from the past. it is fundamental to our freedom. that's why there's protection in the first amendment to the constitution. i'm going to say it slowly so even hillary clinton can understand this. america may not create religious liberty. religious liberty created the united states of america.
6:47 pm
and it's time we stopped trying to divide ourselves against each other. hillary clinton is always trying to divide us by ethnicity, by gender, by economic status. i don't know about you but for me i'm sick and tired of people dividing americans. and i am done with all this talk about hyphenated americans. we are not indian-americans, african-americans, irish-americans, rich americans or poor americans. we are all americans. and while i'm at it, here's
6:48 pm
another thing you're not allowed to say but i'm going to say it anyway. we cannot allow people to immigrate to our country so they can use our freedoms to undermine our freedoms. that is exactly what has happened in europe, where they have second, third generations of immigrants who refuse to embrace the values and culture of the countries they have moved into. we must not let that happen here. it is not unreasonable to demand if you want to immigrate to america you must do so legally. you must be ready and willing to embrace our values, learn english and roll up your sleeves and get to work. [ cheers and applause ]
6:49 pm
now let's do something different, let's tell the truth about our political situation. that's right, it is a mess. republicans must stop being afraid to lose. if we try to hide who we are again, we will lose again. you've heard jeb bush say that we need to be willing to lose the primary in order to win the general election. we're going to help them do that. let me translate that. i'm going to translate that political speak into plain english. what jeb bush is saying is that we need to hide our conservative ideals, but the truth is, if we we go down that road again, we will lose again.
6:50 pm
let's do something new. let's endorse our own principles for a change. let's boldly speak the truth without fear. as republicans we've already tried to appease the left, to make the media like us better to talk in politically correct language. to hide some of our beliefs by calling them distractions. we've tried to mask our conservative ideals and we have failed. every republican will tell you they are for school choice, shrinking government cutting the government work force and getting rid of common core. talk is cheap. talk is just talk. i haven't just talked about these things, i've actually done these things. every republican will say they will fight to protect the unborn. repeal obamacare. secure the border, and destroy isis. i won't simply talk about these
6:51 pm
things, i will get these things done. [ applause ] >> it's time to level with the american people. this president and his apprentice in waiting, hillary clinton, are leading america down the path to destruction. economically culturally and internationally. but the most devastating thing they try to do is redefine the american dream. instead of a dream being to have opportunity and freedom to control your own destiny, to make your own way, their dream is for the government to take care of you to make people dependent on the government. we want to guarantee equality of opportunity. they want to guarantee equality of outcomes. simple fact is, they're trying to turn the american dream into socialism. now, the folks in washington, they may call that the american
6:52 pm
dream. out here in america it's not mine either -- out here in america in the real world we call that the european nightmare. [ applause ] >> to be clear, we're not simply trying to reclaim the past. no quite to the contrary. we are laying our claim on the future. a future where america leads the world. [ applause ] >> this is not a cause any of us can resist. it is our destiny, our mission. as america goes, so goes the world. we are the light of freedom in a dark world. it's time we started acting like it. i will not intimidated about the fact that radical islam is evil
6:53 pm
and it must be destroyed. [ applause ] >> containment is a strategy for losers. as general george s.patton observed, americans play to win all the time. americans don't play to lose. president obama has it wrong. secretary clinton has it wrong. our allies need to trust us. our enemies need to fear us. it is time we play to win again. [ applause ] >> as president, i will have four objectives. i will secure our borders. [ applause ]
6:54 pm
>> i will replace obamacare with a healthcare system that focuses on reducing costs and restoring freedom. [ applause ] 12k3w4r. >> i will grow the private sector economy by sdringhrinking the size, scope, and reach of the federal government. >> i will rebuild america's defenses and restore our standings on the world stage. [ applause ] >> i'm not asking you to simply join my campaign. i'm asking you to join a cause. if you're looking for a candidate who will politely manage america's dissent into mead ocry i'm not your man.
6:55 pm
if you're chasing a dream looking for land where the people are free and the opportunities are real i am asking you to believe. [ applause ] >> my dad told me as a young child, that americans can do anything. i believed him them and i believe it now. i know in your heart you believe it too. i am asking you to believe again. believe in what we can do. believe in what america can do. thank you. may god bless you. may god bless the united states of america.
