As we look at the immense problems confronting us today — and make no mistake, my fellow Americans, we cannot avoid them by burrowing our head in mid-stream — it is clear that I am the only candidate who dares to look our problems in the eye, and say, “Let’s run it up the flagpole and see if the leopard changes his spots.”
My friends, the time has come for change, and I am the change that the time has come for.
But in our haste to change, we must not throw out the baby with the bird in the hand. For it would be rash to count our chickens before the worm turns. As our Founding Fathers so eloquently put it, “These are the times that try to pass through the eye of the needle.”
The challenge must be faced by all of us, for no man who wants to rise before the early bird is an island in the sun. I believe that one hand scratches the other, and as the good book tells us, “Many hands make light of the facts”.
On Election Day, you will face a choice: a choice between a rock and a hard way to make a living. My worthy opponent has chosen to attack my character, and avoid the issues. I, on the other hand, choose to avoid the attacks and issue the characters. I believe to the pith of my marrow that together, we can break the camel’s straw.
I urge you to vote early, and vote often.
In a recent poll, only 9% of Americans know George Washington was a Revolutionary War general.
