Michele Bachmann Speaks At CPAC

Only showing half of it ... but it's pretty stirring stuff....

Our Mission Statement:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed"

Government doesn't give us our rights.
Government only exists to secure our unalienable rights.

It isn't meant to guarantee our happiness, or to provide us with housing or healthcare or to redistribute wealth.

Let's choose greatness, let's not choose decline*.

Great speech.
See the whole thing.
