This, second of five reports from a pivotal 2013 CPAC, is with Senator Marco Rubio who said:

“What I sense is a lot of people have the fear that America has changed; that our people have changed; that we want too much from government; that maybe the changes are irreversible and we will never be the same again. I want you to understand that’s not true. Our people have not changed. The vast majority of the American people are hard working taxpayers who take responsibility for their families, go to work every day, they pay their mortgage on time, they volunteer in the community—this is what the vast majority of Americans still are.”

“What’s changed is the world around us.”

“When people look to Washington, they see one side fighting for the world that made it and the other side fighting to grow a Washington that doesn’t work. They wonder whose fighting for them.” The vast majority of the people “don’t want to take anything away from anybody. . . . Who’s fighting for the hard working people of this country who do things right and don’t complain who have built this nation and have made it exceptional. And for Conservatives, believers in limited government and free enterprise, that is our challenge and our opportunity.”

You are hooked. Click to see Senator Rubio lay out our opportunity—to be their voice and,by the way, I can’t think of a better call:

“What we have [in America] is different and special and historic . . . . If we do what we are supposed to do, we will always be what we are destined to be—the single greatest nation in the history of the world.”
