A Prime Time speech at the Republican national Convention—what a way to join the Liberty List! That’s Mia Love, of course. She is running to defeat six term Democrat Jim Matheson in Utah’s 4th Congressional District. This story is inspiring; this story is fun. Let’s get started with her speech:
Watch a great seven minute version that includes a Mia Love profile here. Mia is mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah but you might think it is Williston, ND. You see this past
decade, while Mia has been a councilwoman or mayor (since 2009), Saratoga Springs has grown 1,700%. Yes, that is 1,700% from less than 1100 to over 18,000. According to her Campaign Web Site, “One of her first acts as mayor was to reduce the residential property tax.” Her record as mayor, “[Was] the basis for Saratoga Springs receiving the highest Standard & Poors municipal rating available to a city of its class, at a time when many cities were being downgraded.”
The Mia Love story is a fresh vibrant and compelling version of the American story—the American promise by Emma Lazarus,
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
You see, her parents immigrated legally to the United States “with $10 in their pockets in hopes of achieving the American Dream.” They came from the hopeless tragic country of Haiti where good people live lives in perpetual poverty without hope smothered by socialist corruption. Her inspiring parents worked to support and raise their three children in Brooklyn, NY. They, like so many American immigrants, by working more, were able to do more; they sent children to college. “On the day of Mia’s college orientation, her father said something to her that would become the ethos for her life: ‘Mia, your mother and I never took a handout. You will not be a burden to society. You will give back.’”
Mia Love is running on a platform of returning America to personal responsibility, limited government and fiscal discipline. That sounds exactly like America.
