Who are we?
Look at this young fellow. Listen to this young fellow. If you're an American of my generation or of my parent's generation, you gotta ask yourself whether you've been phoning your principles in for most or all of your life. Lock yourself in the bathroom in the middle of the night if you have to. But do it. You owe it to yourself, and more importantly, you owe it to your country.
Look at and listen to this young man. How is it that someone so young and so lacking in the "experience" so many old duffers cherish can have such great principles?
Tell ya one thing, principles don't come from the firetrucking government, or from the firetrucking talking heads in the idiot box, or from firetrucking "passions" about social justification of depraved incivility.
Look and listen and thank god that there are young men and women all across the land who actually can be bothered to give a firetruck about the Constitution and about principles and about the bright shining beacon of American Exceptionalism.
