The stars of the convention were Mia Love, Marco Rubio, and the small and large business people who shared their passion, their life stories, their hardships and their failures, and their common gratitude for the blessings of liberty. The stories told by entrepreneurs who testified about the benefits of Bain Capital under Romney’s leadership were also powerful and moving. The corollary narrative of 1st and 2nd generation Americans pursuing the American Dream also soared.
Yes, the media lapdoggies ignored these speeches. But the information blockade can, will, and must be breached this election. It is up to grass-roots conservatives inspired by those stories to amplify them, re-tell them, and add their own.
I’m reprinting the transcript and posting the full video of Rubio’s speech because it speaks for me. It speaks for generations. It is our story, and unlike the fiction that spews forth daily from the White House, this story is cherished and true.
