This video is 14 minutes long, but it will be worth your time to carve out a slot to watch the entire thing.
This is a speech given by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), one of those “racists” elected by the “racist” Tea Party patriots last year. He explains the insanity of the out-of-control spending spree our nation has been on for a number of years, and how we have ignored our massive and still-growing debt for years. He also schools the haughty Senator John Kerry (D-MA), who, you might know, served in Vietnam.
Rubio says many very important things. Here are two of the most compelling. One, that compromise for the sake of compromise (without a meaningful solution) is a waste of time. And if your house is no fire, you don’t worry about saving this part or that–you work to save the whole thing or it will all burn down.
“I would love nothing more than compromise. But I would say to you that compromise that’s not a solution is a waste of time.
“If my house was on fire, I can’t compromise about which part of the house I’m going to save. You save the whole house or it will all burn down.
“We either save this country or we do not.
“And to save it, we must seek solutions.”
Great speech. May his colleageus–and the rest of America–listen.
