“People of this nation, you are now free. Use this new found independence wisely. This administration is forcing each and every one of you to provide for your own needs. It is now up to you to provide for the needs of your own family. It is up to you to provide your friends with the help he needs. The federal government can no longer afford to provide for those needs. Focus on yourself, focus on your family, focus on your friends for this is where you will find the support you need to get through this chaotic period in our nation. The future of this nation is now in your hands. Are you up to the task?
Governors of every State, you are the highest directly elected leaders of this nation. It is at this juncture of the history of this nation that you will prove whether or not you are deserving of that honor. This administration is forcing upon you the responsibility to maintain control over the hotheads who seek to take advantage of this chaos. It will be up to you to show that local control is a better concept of governance than centralized control. The future of this nation is in your hands. Are you up to the task?
Religions of this nation, now is the time to show why religious organizations have as much value and worth in this society that the federal constitution as well as the constitutions of each State of this nation attributes to religion. It will be you that people will turn to for the real courage to go forward as free people instead of returning to the past dependencies upon the government. This is the responsibility that this administration is forcing upon you. It will be up to you to exemplify the reason our forefathers declared this a nation under God.
It is you that is the heart and soul of this nation. It will be through you that the people will come to seek the guidance of God as they exercise the gift He has given them, the gift of free will. Teach them well of the meaning behind that gift so precious so that they will never seek to become dependent upon government again. The future of this nation is in your hands. Are you up to the task?
Leaders of business, free enterprise is now free once again. It is free enterprise that is the backbone of this nation. It is the free enterprise system that puts bread on the table of the people. Without the burdens that government has forced upon the shoulders of business free enterprise can stand tall once more. Employers, work together with your employees to instill in this nation the economic strength that is missing and that we were so well known for in the past. The future and well being of this nation is in your hands. Are you up to the task?
Let there be no doubt in anyone’s minds that the eyes of the world will be watching and seeking to learn from you as you react to this state of crisis. This administration is forcing each and everyone of you to be an example of the meaning of liberty and to show them the meaning behind the pursuit of happiness that only freedom can bring. Are you up to the task?
It will be from you that the people of the world will learn whether their struggle for freedom is a worthwhile struggle. As your leader I have, with my actions, declared my faith and that faith is in you, the people of this great nation. The only question that remains is how much faith each of you have in yourself? It was your faith in me that got me elected to the position I possess at this moment. And in return I could do no less than show that faith in you. The future of the world as well as the future of this nation is now in both of our hands from this moment on.”
With those words said grandpa went silent and a quiet went over the crowd that seemed to be the most deafening of noise.
Then grandpa looked his friend straight in the eye and asked,
“What be your thoughts now of my preposterous ideas of change?
