“….What it says quite naturally and rightly, if not always gracefully, is that we as a people are not to be ruled and not to be commanded. It says that the president should never forget this; that he has not risen above us, but is merely one of us, chosen by ballot, dismissed after his term, takes not to transform and work his will upon us, but to bear the weight of decision and to carry out faithfully the design laid down in the Constitution and impassioned by the Declaration of Independence….”
Taken from his speech at Hillsdale College, Congressman Mike Pence of Indiana
He also said that America is not a dog, and does not require a “because-I-said-so” jurisprudence to which it is then commanded to catch up, or legislators who knit laws of such insulting complexity that they are heavier than chains; or a president who acts like, speaks like, and is received as a king. The presidency has run off the rails. it begs a new clarity, a new discipline, and a new president.
Every time the subject comes up of Mike Pence running for President, I say YEAH. He is for small government. Constitutional governnance, and he believes that this country is great and deserves respect. Here is the video of his whole speech from Hillsdale College this week. In it you will see what I mean about him.
