Why Fred’s Gonna Be President

Real Clear Politics has a transcript of a speech given by Fred Thompson to the Lincoln Club of Orange County:

The Democrats, of course, want to raise taxes. They only want to target the rich, they say. A word of advice to anyone in the middle class — don’t stand anywhere near that target. Wouldn’t it be great if, instead of worrying so much about how to divide the pie, we could work together on how to make the pie bigger?

On globalization — we’re not afraid of it. It works to our benefit. We innovate more and invest in that innovation better than anywhere else in the world. Same thing goes for services, which are increasingly driving our economy. Free trade and market economies have done more for freedom and prosperity than a central planner could ever dream and we’re the world’s best example of that. So, why do we want to take investment dollars out of growth, and invest it in government?

As they used to say, “Right on!”

Reading this speech reminds Mr. Fu of the time he went to hear Ronald Reagan speak in Omaha, Nebraska.  Mr. Fu was not much of a fan of President Reagan until he heard the President speak live.  Mr. Fu regards that speech as inspirational, and a turning point for his option of the future of the United States of America.  The Leftist / Communists in our midst may make a loud noise, and may delay our destiny.  But we shall always triumph against the Leftist / Communists because we are in the right, their kung fu is weak, and our kung fu is strong!
