7:00 pm
heart. it took over five years for that to happen because the obama administration refused to knowledge that was terrorism. instead, it was workplace violence. i tell you the reason those purple hearts were awarded, i was very proud last year to introduce legislation in the senate to mandate that the pentagon awarded those purple hearts.
7:01 pm
we won support over the active opposition of the obama pentagon and finally, those awards were given. i shook the hands of each soldier, i shook the hand of each wife or child of the 14 innocent souls who were murdered that day. alike can say to them was i am sorry. i am sorry this took five years. this should have been acknowledged the day it happened, not five years too late. the great state of south carolina plays a pivotal role in our nation. you have the blessing and the
7:02 pm
curse. so, you are going to see presidential candidates to send upon you like those federal regulators and locusts. my one request is to please hold back on the pesticide. i will tell you, the responsibility of this great state in the republican party is to ensure that we nominate a conservative. how do you tell? because every candidate, and i don't know, there might be 15, 20, it might be the phonebook. every one of them, i am the most conservative guy who ever lived.
7:03 pm
i am pretty confident, if you had any speaker who said, who stood up and said, i'm establishment moderate who stands for nothing. they don't say that. so, how do you tell the difference? the scriptures tell us, you shall know them by their fruits. and i would encourage each of you to ask every single candidate who stands up in front of you, you say you believe these principles, show me. when have you stood up and fought for them, when have you bled for them, what have you accomplished? if you say you oppose obamacare, when have you stood up and fought to stop it? if you say you oppose president obama's unconstitutional executive amnesty, when have you sit up and fought to stop it?
7:04 pm
if you say you support the first amendment, where were you in indiana? if you say you support the second amendment, where were you when harry reid and the president were coming after our gun rights? if you say support the 10th amendment, if you say you oppose common core, when have you stood and fought on this principles? if you say support life and marriage, when have you stood and fought to defend marriage? you say you support israel, when have you stood and fought alongside israel? when have you stood and fought to stop iran from getting nuclear weapons?
7:05 pm
many of you may hear this and say, i agree with all of this, but how can you make it happen? it will not come from washington. washington is broken. i have seen it firsthand.
7:06 pm
it will only come from millions of courageous conservatives rising up to say that we want our country back. i inspired, hopeful, optimistic because of the men and women in this room. we are building an army, a grassroots army of courageous conservatives. for each of you that have your cell phones. would you pull it out and text the word constitution to the number 33733. let me give you that again. the word constitution to 33733. the hope for this country will come from the men and women across this country like the reagan revolution, pulling us back. it was a century and a half ago. south carolina spent -- many of
7:07 pm
you know my father, pastor rafael cruz. my father saw freedom taken away in cuba, i will tell you what he said to me. i lost my freedom once. i will die before it happens again. i'm going to close with just telling a quick story.
7:08 pm
on january 20, 2017, an elderly man walks up to the front gate of the white house and asks the marine there, says excuse me, is barack obama here? the marine says, i'm sorry, barack obama is no longer president of the united states. the next day the same elderly gentleman walks up to the gates to say, he sees me, sir, is barack obama here? the marine size and says once again, i'm sorry sir, barack obama is no longer president of the united states. the next day the same elderly gentleman walks up to the gates, the same arenas there and he asked the question one more time . this time the marine size heavily and says, sir, i have told you three days in a row barack obama is the longer
7:09 pm
president of the united states. the little old man with a trickle in his eye, he says, i know that, i just love hearing you say it. [applause] the marine salutes and says, see you tomorrow, sir. change is coming. god bless you, god bless south carolina. [applause] ♪
7:10 pm
thank you. i am so happy to be here with you this afternoon. i love coming to south carolina. there are a lot of people here with common sense.
7:11 pm
sometimes we don't find that in other locations. they said it was a rough-and-tumble place. i have lost two teeth since i have been here. many people have asked me about my mother. i appreciate it. i flew down to texas where she is she is in the terminal stages of alzheimer's and has stopped eating and drinking. so many people have been praying for her. i met one lady said she had a group of 2200 people praying for my mother. the last three days, she is eating and drinking again.
7:12 pm
[applause] i just want to thank you. they do mean a lot. speaking of my mother, she has the greatest influence other than jesus christ on my life. she refused to be a victim. she has every reason to be a victim. born in a large family in rural tennessee, shifted from home to home. never feeling like she was in any place. trying to cobble together any education she could. gaining as much as a third grade education. moving to detroit. years later discovering he was a bigamist. having limited education
7:13 pm
working so hard to support myself and my brother. the interesting thing about her, she absolutely refused to feel sorry for herself. that was a good thing. she never felt sorry for us either. [laughter] anything that would evoke sympathy, she was the baltimore mom you saw on television. [applause] [laughter] except that i would have never been out there in the first place. i would have known what was coming. it does say a lot about the concept of the family. i think the family is such an important pillar of strength for this country. it has been under attack for the last few decades.
7:14 pm
first attacking fathers in the role of father so much on television, saying they don't need a father, and the government programs that give money to women who have babies out of wedlock, and take the money away if she gets married. these kinds of things are anti-family. one of the things we have to do, get the people who actually create them to understand the programs that let people out of poverty, and the program that maintains people in a state of dependency. [applause] some people criticize me and say you want to get rid of the safety net programs.
7:15 pm
what i do want to do is help us to create an environment where you don't need all the safety net programs. [applause] this country is an amazing country. think about this. we declared our independence in 1776. in 100 years we were the number one economic power in the world. nobody else could do anything like that. hundreds and thousands of years before that, people were doing things the same. america is an exceptional country. no other country like it. have we made mistakes? of course we have. have we learned from them? of course we have. we as americans have got to recognize that our strength lies
7:16 pm
-- and we have to stop listening to purveyors of division trying to make us believe that we hate each other. that there is a war on women. there is no war on women. that is ridiculous. they are really trying to stoke up this racial stuff, and all of our cities. we are going to have to get beyond that. why don't you talk about race? when i am operating on a head, the skin doesn't make them who they are. it is the brain who makes them who they are.
7:17 pm
we have to start thinking at a much deeper level, not just looking superficially. anybody can do that. an animal can do that. we have to be able to analyze things at a deeper level. the religious wars they are stoking up, i believe we are all entitled to have whatever faith we want to have. our constitution aaron and teases of freedom of religion. not freedom from religion. atheists also won't tell you they have a religion, but they obviously have a religion. they obviously believe in things that they can't prove. they have faith. i find it interesting when they
7:18 pm
say you're a scientist, how could you possibly believe in god. that is ridiculous. i was having an argument in hollywood -- [laughter] with a famous atheist. he thought anybody who believed in god was a total idiot. that the end of the conversation i said look, i believe i came from god. you believe you came from a monkey. i tend to agree with you. [applause] [laughter] but the fact of the matter is, what we do need to make sure, that we never do in this country , is force our beliefs upon someone
7:19 pm
else. that needs to go in both directions. the left doesn't get to force their beliefs on anybody else. with the gay marriage thing, i get asked that question so much. in the press conference now that was a predominant question. why is it so hard for people to understand that? marriage in my opinion is between one man and one woman. that is relatively simple. [cheering] by the same token, our constitution guarantees the right of every single citizen, and we protect the rights of every single citizen. however. everybody is equal. nobody is more equal. nobody gets special rights to
7:20 pm
change the rules for everybody else. that is what we must guarantee in our society if we are to remain a free society. as soon as we start picking special groups and saying you get to change everybody else where does that end? there is no end to that. that is why our constitution was written the way that it was. we must be courageous. it is going to be up to us. we the people have got to learn for ourselves. we cannot let other people tell us what we are supposed to think. [applause] if we listen to the pundits and the political groups, always steer you in a certain direction.
7:21 pm
why would we continue to go in that direction? is this something that needs me and my children, and my grandchildren, and freedom is going to preserve our constitution? is this something that is going in a different direction. we are the ones to make that decision. no one can take that for us unless we fall down on the job. i do believe we have the ability to analyze these things deeply. we look at the national debt that we are facing. over $18 trillion.
7:22 pm
that is ridiculous. it is beyond ridiculous. there is so much money. if you try to pay it back at a rate of 10 million dollars a day, it would take you 5000 years. we are putting that on the back of our children and grandchildren. it is absurd. it puts a tremendous pressure on an economy, once the gdp reaches 90%. we are at 103%. the gdp will be smaller than the national debt. it is the first time that has happened since we were in the middle of a war. there is no in and insights. we have leaders who think that they have scored a victory if the debt doesn't go up as much
7:23 pm
as it did the last quarter. that is the wrong criteria. we need to be talking about that. we need a balanced budget amendment. we need to be talking about term limits. [applause] not only for people in congress, but term limits for judges. [applause] when we put our constitution in place, the average age was 47 years old. it doesn't matter if we give them a lifetime. now it matters quite a bit.
7:24 pm
we obviously need to adjust with the times. you look at social security. the average age of death was 63 years old. now it is 80 years old. if we don't adjust things we wind up behind the eight ball. getting back to the economy, so many of our problems are linked to a poor economy. this has been a long recovery and we are still in a recovery process. some people will tell you, like this administration, that things are great. unemployment is down to 5.4%. we have all these wonderful jobs. one of the reasons that a lot of people are frustrated and are rioting, when they open
7:25 pm
their eyes and look around they don't see it. there has been plenty of change, but there is little hope. that is what is killing us. [applause] in concentrating on that economy, the most powerful economic engine the world has known, how do we get it moving again? we have the highest corporate tax rates in the developed world. that is the easy one. here is the cool thing. there is $2 trillion of our money sitting overseas that corporations are not bringing back here because they don't want to face that taxation. what if we just said we are giving you a tax holiday for six months and let the money come
7:26 pm
back into our country? that would be a wise move. that would be a major stimulus. it wouldn't cost taxpayers a single dime. the other thing we need to do is get rid of the unnecessary regulations. i stress the word unnecessary. if men were angels, no government would be needed. men are not angels, nor are women. [laughter] we do need some rules and regulations there. we need a reasonable tax structure. our tax code is 80,000 pages long. nobody can comply with all of that. we need to scrap the whole thing and start over again.
7:27 pm
[applause] with something that makes sense, something that is proportional, and you make $10 billion, you pay $1 billion. same proportion. you get the same rights. some people say, but it is not fair because the person who makes $10, he can't afford to pay any money. he can't pay a dollar. i had not opportunity to experience every economic level in this country, from the bottom to the top. a lot of people on the bottom also have pride. [applause] they don't want somebody patting them on the head and saying you can't carry your part of the load. they want to be a part of the
7:28 pm
american system also. what we need to be concentrating on is finding ways to provide ladders so they can climb out of that situation and realize the american dream. that is the key for everybody. [applause] lastly, we can't he ashamed of who we are. as we give away parts of who we are for the sake of political correctness, we won't have a vision. we won't even know who we are. we won't know what we stand for. with the carson scholars fund, which is a national scholars program my wife and i started, and for those who think that doctors don't know how to do
7:29 pm
anything, i should say nine out of 10 nonprofits fail. ours not only didn't fail, it is active in 50 states and the district of columbia has one national awards. many of them being awards only given to one organization in the country for outstanding performance. [applause] our slogan, the t is for talent, honesty, insight, k for knowledge. b for books, and the g is for god. lawyers say you can't put it in a public school because the g stands for god. what a bunch of crap, you know?
7:30 pm
[cheering] we had a vigorous argument. i suggested maybe we can resolve it at the level of the supreme court, which seemed bold and reckless. i knew the next week i was going to the supreme court to receive the jefferson award. so i figured i would ask while i was there. justice as o'connor said, of course that was no violation of the first amendment. people who say silly stuff like that what do they know about our country? they realized that our founding document talked about certain rights given to us by our creator, a.k.a. god. do they realize that the pledge of allegiance to that flag says we are one nation under god that many courtroom say, and got we trust, every coin in our pocket, every bill in our wallet says, in god we trust. it is in our courts, it is on our money, but we are not supposed to talk about it.
7:31 pm
what in the world is that? in medicine, we call it schizophrenia. [applause] doesn't that explain a lot of what is going on in our nation today? we need to make it clear that it is ok to live by godly principles of loving your fellow man, caring about your neighbor, developing your god-given talents so that you become valuable to the people around you, having values and principles that guide your life. if we do that, not only will we remain a pinnacle nation, we will truly have one nation, under god indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. thank you very much. [applause]
7:32 pm
♪ ms. fiorina: thank you so much and good afternoon. thank you for hanging in here all day. i'm so impressed with your stamina. thank you for that very warm welcome. like a really content, i am running -- like hillary clinton i am running for president of the united states. but unlike hillary clinton, i'm not afraid to answer questions about my track record or my accomplishments or my principles. i'm not sure you are aware of this, but hillary clinton has taken exactly seven on the record questions since april 12. i have actually answered over 200 on the record questions
7:33 pm
since monday of this week. [applause] i have to admit that one of those questions was, did i consider a hotdog a sandwich. we will subtract that one. what do you think? is a hotdog a sandwich? no, ok. the new york times now has a regular feature called "questions we would have asked hillary clinton if we only had the opportunity." i bet you have some questions too. i certainly do. for example why, in your first public statement, after the terrorist attacks that killed four brave americans in benghazi, why did you talk to us about the need for religious tolerance? why do you lecture us on the need to empathize with our
7:34 pm
enemies while christians are being beheaded and crucified in the middle east? [applause] did you really see no conflict of interest while your family foundation took millions of dollars in donations and your husband took very large speaker fees from foreign governments who had business before you while you served as secretary of state? and tell us again why we should be reassured that you had two secret service agents guarding that server in the basement. mrs. clinton, we are not worried about the server being stolen. we are worried about the server being hacked. perhaps it would be useful to have a president who understands something about technology. [applause]
7:35 pm
recently, while i was reading my daily scripture, i came across matthew 12:34. for the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. today, i want to speak to you about what fills my heart. when i was a little girl, one morning in sunday school, my mother said to me, what you are is god's gift to you. what you make of yourself is your gift to god. i started my career as a secretary in a little nine-person real estate firm. ultimately, i would become the chief executive officer of the largest technology company in the world, and run for president of the united states. [applause] that's only possible in the united states of america. that's only possible here. it is possible here and only here because our founders knew what my mother taught me.
7:36 pm
our founders knew that everyone has god-given gifts. our founders built a nation on the visionary, and at the time radical, idea that every life has potential, and everyone has the right to fulfill their potential. that is what our founders meant when they talk about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. they believe that right came from god, and should not be taken away by man or government. [applause] i have seen people in all kinds of circumstances. i have seen people in desperate and destitute circumstances. and yet it is true that every person, every person has god-given gifts. every person's life is filled with god-given potential. and whatever their circumstances, everyone truly does have the capacity to live a life of dignity and purpose and
7:37 pm
meaning, and we know that dignity comes from work, and purpose comes from family, and meaning comes from faith in our lives. [applause] i've been very blessed in my life, but like all of you, i also have been through hard times. i managed hewlett-packard through the dotcom bust, the worst technology recession in 25 years, and yet we transformed that company from one falling behind to one charging ahead even as so many companies against which we competed disappeared off the stage altogether. at the end of that time, i was fired in a boardroom brawl. one of the things i know is that leaders challenge the status quo , and there are people who fight to preserve the status quo.
7:38 pm
those who fight to preserve the status become the enemies of leaders who fight to change the system. [applause] when i battled cancer six years ago, i relied on the strength of my family and the power of my faith. when, a short time later, we lost our younger daughter to the demons of addiction, my husband and i relied on our personal relationship with jesus christ to save us from a desperate that this. -- desperate sadness. i met frank 34 years ago. when we married 30 years ago next sunday as a matter of fact is our 30th anniversary -- [applause] thank you so much. when we married 30 years ago, i learned that his mother did had been told to abort him.
7:39 pm
but she was a woman of great faith and great courage, and she chose to bring her child into the world. she spent a year in the hospital, following his birth and yet frank was the joy of her life and he has been the rock of mine. i think often about how different my life would the -- would be had she made a different choice. [applause] as you know, i ran for the senate against barbara boxer in california in 2010 and iran as a proud pro-life conservative. you don't do that unless you really mean it. for those of us who believe in the sanctity of life, we know that science is proving us right every day. we now know that the dna in a zygote is the same dna as the day you die. life is a continuum. a gift from god past through the
7:40 pm
union of a woman and a man and every life is filled with potential. [applause] i don't know about you, but i am really tired of being called extreme on this issue. the platform of the democrat party is, a life is not a life until it leaves the hospital. that, ladies and gentlemen, is extreme. [applause] i must tell you, as i have traveled across this country over the last several years i've sensed a deep disquiet. it is not political. it is not partisan. people are disquieted because they fear we are losing something, and they think we are missing something. they fear we are losing that
7:41 pm
sense of limitless possibility that has always defined this nation. we always knew if something was worth doing, this nation would do it. even better if it was hard to do. we knew that our own lives were filled with the possibilities that came with our god-given gifts, and we trusted that our children and grandchildren's lives would be filled with even greater possibilities. and yet, people no longer feel this sense of possibility, and when we lose a sense of limitless possibility that has always defined this nation, then we lose the core of who we are. there is a reason why people feel as though we are losing possibilities. i see too many lives tangled up in webs of dependence. i see too many family-owned businesses or farms, small businesses, new businesses, getting crushed for the first time in u.s. history. we are now destroying more
7:42 pm
businesses than we are creating. the government has become so big, so powerful, so costly, so corrupt, so crushing in its weight and its ineptitude, that only the big, the powerful, the wealthy, and the well-connected can survive. [applause] and if you doubt that, think for a moment about the result of dodd frank, a piece of legislation that was passed to protect us, but the consequence of dodd frank is that 10 wall st banks too big to fail have become 5 wall st banks too big to fail, and 3000 community banks have come -- have gone out of business. in industry after industry, the crushing weight of government complexity and power ensures that only the big, the powerful the wealthy, and the well-connected can deal with it. ladies and gentlemen, this is
7:43 pm
called crony capitalism. the answer is not more government. it is less government. [applause] we truly have reached a point in this country where the potential of the people of america is being crushed by the weight of the government of america. [applause] and that is why this is a pivotal point in our nations history, and that is why i am running for the presidency of the united states. [applause] people think we are losing that sense of limitless possibility and they are right. what they think we are missing now is leadership. so it is worth talking a moment about what leadership is. it is different than management.
7:44 pm
managers are people who do the best they can within the existing system. managers don't challenge the status quo. managers tinker around the edges of a problem within the status quo. a leader's job is to challenge the status quo. a leader's job is to refuse to accept what is broken simply because it has been that way for a very long time. [applause] when i was a secretary, i thought a leader was somebody with a big office. if you had the big office, the big parking space, you must be a leader. then i got older and wiser and i learned that there were people with big offices and big titles who had not led a day in their lives. we have one of those in the oval office right now, ladies and gentlemen. [applause]
7:45 pm
leadership is not about position. it is not about power. it is not about titles. leadership is about changing the order of things for the better and the highest calling of leadership is to unlock potential in others. that is the kind of leadership we now need in washington, d.c. [applause] it is important to remember that hours was intended to be a citizen government. when did we get used to the fact that only a professional political class could run for office? the truth is, the professional political class, those protectors of the status low they have led the citizens of this nation down. [applause] and there is no greater example of this than the veterans administration. how long must we lived with this
7:46 pm
stain upon our nation's honor that we cannot serve our veterans the way we should serve them? [applause] until friday of last week, i served as the chairman of a christian-based organization called opportunity international, the largest micro-finance organization in the world. we have lent almost $8 billion. i can deliver to a desperately poor woman in the slums of new delhi a loan over a cell phone. but if you are a veteran, you spent months filling out paperwork, many months while some bureaucrat check your paperwork, and the regional headquarters of the veterans administration in winston-salem, north carolina, has had to have the foundations of the building reinforced because of the weight of the paperwork on the bureaucrats desk.
7:47 pm
we cannot settle for this anymore, ladies and gentlemen. [applause] we need leadership to unlock the potential of this great nation and restore possibilities to every american, regardless of their circumstances. we need leadership around the world as well. the world is a more dangerous and more tragic place when america is not leading. [applause] the truth is, i have met more world leaders on the stage today than anyone else running for the presidency, with the possible exception of hillary clinton only i wasn't doing photo ops. i was having private meetings, talking about serious issues like is this, charity, the issues that matter to them. i have served as the chairman of the external advisory board for the central intelligence azz --
7:48 pm
central intelligence agency. i have sat across a table from vladimir putin, just he and i and i can tell you, it is pretty clear to me that a reset button will not for his ambition. but there are some things we could do. there are some things we could do that would slow him down and cause him to say, i am standing now, seeing an america strengthened. we should rebuild the missile-defense program. we should conduct military exercises in the baltic states and we should arm the ukrainians. [applause] every single one of the things i just mentioned is within this country's control. president obama always presents a false strength to the american
7:49 pm
people. he says, if you don't agree with me, the only option is to march off to war. that is untrue. i've been asked what i would do in the first hundred days in the oval office area -- oval office. i will tell you two things i would do on the first day. t i would makew two phone calls. the first is to benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel. i would make that phone call not just because i've known him for a long time, i would make that phone call because i want the world to know that america stands by our allies, and i want him to tell the world that his was the first phone call i made. the second phone call that i would make would be to the supreme leader of iran.
7:50 pm
he might not take my call, but he would get the message loud and clear. the message would be this, whatever the circumstances were, the circumstances have changed now. until and unless you submit to full and unfettered inspections of every nuclear facility in your country, we will exact the most crushing sanctions weekend. we have a lot to do with how easy or hard it is to move money around the global financial system. i would ensure that it was very, very hard for iran. i would keep that pressure on until he engages. [applause] by the way, there is much we can do to help our allies fight against this terrible, evil enemy called isis. we can arm the kurds, as they've been asking to do for years. we can share intelligence with the egyptians. we can give the jordanians bombs and material so they can help fight this fight for us.
7:51 pm
we have done none of them. [applause] several weeks ago, i was asked by a reporter whether a woman's hormones prevented her from serving in the oval office. [laughter] no ladies, this is a test. can any of you think of a single example in which a man's judgment was clouded by his hormones? any at all? even in the oval office? [applause] hillary clinton must not be president of the united states but not because she's a woman.
7:52 pm
hillary clinton must not be the president of the united states because she is not trustworthy and she does not have a track record of accomplishment. [applause] when i was the ceo of hewlett-packard, a publicly traded company, if i made a misstatement of material facts about my record, or about our results, i could be sued and charged. if i told one person something that we intended to do in the future, and told another person something different about what i intended to do in the future, i could be sued. i could be charged. imagine if we had this level this standard of accountability among the professional political class of washington, d.c.
7:53 pm
[applause] the american people will have a choice. are we going to demand trust transparency, and more than words from our political leaders? do we want someone in the white house who is not afraid to be held accountable, who is not afraid to challenge the status quo? have we had enough of the ruling political class that doles out favors to the wealthy, the well-connected, and the few? we have everything we need to solve every problem. all of our wounds are self-inflicted. we have the potential of the american people. all we need now is leadership and citizenship. if you want to help me, please
7:54 pm
go on to carlyforpre and sign up, and sign on. [applause] we rightly celebrate our founding fathers because they were men of vision and courage. but two of the most powerful symbols of this great and blessed nation are women. lady liberty and lady justice. lady liberty stands tall and strong. she is clear eyed. she is resolute. she faces outward into the world as america must always face. and she holds her torch up high because she knows she is a beacon of hope in a very troubled world. and lady justice, she holds a
7:55 pm
sword in one hand because she is a fighter. she is a warrior for the values and principles that have made this nation great. she holds a scale in the other hand. with that scale, we remind -- she reminds us that all are equal in the eyes of god, and all must be equal in the eyes of the law and government. [applause] and she wears a blindfold. with that blindfold, she reminds us that this must be always a nation where it truly doesn't matter who you are or what you look like or what your circumstances are. here, in this country, every american's life should be filled
7:56 pm
with possibilities, with liberty and justice for all. and so, let us rise together to restore the promise of this great nation. let us rise together to meet our challenges. let us ensure that this is the greatest century for this, the greatest nation in the world has ever known. thank you so much, ladies and gentlemen. god bless you all.
