Quote of the Day

"But America is more than just a place -- it's an idea. It's the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature (natural law) and God, not government. We promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.

"This idea is founded on the principles of liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination and government by consent of the governed. This idea is under assault. So, we have a critical decision to make as a nation. We are on an unsustainable path that is robbing America of our freedom and security. It doesn't have to be this way.

"The commitment Mitt Romney and I make to you is this: We won't duck the tough issues. We will lead! We won't blame others. We will take responsibility! We won't replace our founding principles. We will reapply them!"

Rep. Paul Ryan
