Fred Thompson spoke to the crowd gathered at the Republican Party of Virginia Gala this weekend in Richmond. The entire speech is being provided on CSPAN and is very powerful and inspiring to those who still believe in the United States and the people who made this the greatest nation…
Regarding the upcoming shortfalls in Social Security, Medicare, and other challenges facing America, Thompson had these statements:
“Unless we do some things differently.
We’re going have to be more focused, we’re going have to be smarter. We’re going have to be more determined, and we’re going have to be more together, as a nation, then we have ever been before…
Are we together?
Are we more together?
I look at Congress and I see the only real debate going on in Congress is what are surrender date is going to be.
I listen to the Democratic Congressional leaders I hear them talk about how many seats they are going to pick up because of this war.
I listen to one of their Presidential candidates talk about this is a phony war.
The war on terror.
This is what passes for policy today in the Democratic party.
I see a Congress that does not realize that what’s going on now is part of a much bigger picture.
I don’t know how to put this any simpler. There are many, many people out there in this world today who’s number one target is the United States of America and killing as many innocent Americans as they possibly can.
They have a hundred year plan and this is just part of the plan. And they can look a hundred years into the future while as far as we can look sometimes presumably is to the next election”…
