The entire NRO article needs to be read in full to understand how Jeremiah Wright should be and better be an issue for John McCain to force a national discussion on in the remaining weeks.
It is called Wright 101.
It looks like Jeremiah Wright was just the tip of the iceberg. Not only did Barack Obama savor Wright's sermons, Obama gave legitimacy — and a whole lot of money — to education programs built around the same extremist anti-American ideology preached by Reverend Wright. And guess what? Bill Ayers is still palling around with the same bitterly anti-American Afrocentric ideologues that he and Obama were promoting a decade ago. All this is revealed by a bit of digging, combined with a careful study of documents from the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the education foundation Obama and Ayers jointly led in the late 1990s.
The piece is well put together, traces the fact that Obama funded extremist Afrocentrists who shared Wright's anti-Americanism.
This is not only a legitimate issue but one that is not being explored by the McCain campaign and damn well should be.
Read it in it's entirety.

This will not be welcome news to Hillary Clinton supporters who are still feeling the brunt of the primary campaign season that cost her the Democratic nomination for presidency in favor of Barack Obama, despite the fact that Hillary had more popular vote totals when all voters were counted, but according to Clinton, the chances of her running for president again are "probably zero."
Many Clinton supporters stayed loyal to Hillary throughout the primaries and many refused to back Barack Obama after the hard fought primary where Obama played the race card and the media showed an incredible amount of sexism against Clinton, with some prominent Clinton supporters backing John McCain after Obama took the Democratic nomination.
Many also believed Clinton would run again in 2012 if McCain won the 2008 election and in 2016 if Obama took the 2008 election, but her words in this interview seem to nix that idea out.
As Clinton supporters watch the same race cards being played by the Obama campaign now, calling Sarah Palin a racist for daring bringing up the ties between unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers and Barack Obama and as they see the same sexist remarks and actions from the media and Obama supporters against Palin as they witnessed against Clinton, many believe the Democratic Party as a whole has betrayed them.
Clinton supporters will be a force in the 2008 elections and this news is not exactly going to make them feel warm and fuzzy about Obama.

The ACORN voter fraud scandal has gotten so big and is being investigated in so many different states, not many know exactly what to do about it.
Start with the ACORN-Barack Obama connection. First and foremost, ACORN is a liberal group and the problems stem from their "voter drives" where they go out and get people to register... the problem is, they are registering the same people, in one case, 73 times, dead people, pets and under-aged children (even a 7 year-old), they offer cash and cigarettes as payment to get people to keep registering multiple times and they have had members convicted in previous years for the same type of behavior.
That is the tip of the iceberg.
Wall Street Journal cuts to the chase:
Which brings us to Mr. Obama, who got his start as a Chicago "community organizer" at Acorn's side. In 1992 he led voter registration efforts as the director of Project Vote, which included Acorn. This past November, he lauded Acorn's leaders for being "smack dab in the middle" of that effort. Mr. Obama also served as a lawyer for Acorn in 1995, in a case against Illinois to increase access to the polls.
I will also list all previous pieces about ACORN written here at the bottom of this post.
In Indiana, ACORN aka Association of Community Organizations for Reform, election officials were going through 5,000 ACORN submissions and gave up after 2,100 of them were found to be fraudulent, via Instapundit, we have video of the news report.
YouTube URL here and video below:
In Ohio, 4,000 of ACORN submissions have been found to be questionable.
ACORN, whose political arm has endorsed Democratic nominee Barack Obama, has signed up more than 1.3 million voters for this cycle.
Investors Business Daily also speaks of the ACORN/Obama relationship:
Of course, Obama denies being a trainer for ACORN and its staff of community rabble-rousers now engaged in massive countrywide vote fraud to elect the man who helped lead their effort to force banks to issue loans to people who could not afford them.
Much more at that link about Obama/ACORN.
Ohio Daily Blog, via Malkin, brings the announcement back in February from Ohio ACORN political director Mari Engelhardt:
More Obama/ACORN connections found at Pajamas Media.
With less than a month before the presidential election, ACORN is now being investigated in 14 states, so far, and they are responsible for millions of newly registered voters for Barack Obama.
How many of those millions are real people? How many are eligible to vote?
This has become a huge issue and it appears that it is about to become even larger.

A plumber who asked Barack Obama about his tax plans was told by the Senator that his goal is to "spread the wealth around." Obama made the comments shortly after he unveiled a plan that would, he said, constitute a 'tax cut for 95% of Americans."
The only problem with that plan is, however, that it does no such thing. Obama will raise taxes on higher income households, and he will give a tax credit to those with lower incomes. What this means is the following:
33% of Americans do no pay taxes. Yet, they will receive a tax credit. A credit... on taxes they did not pay.
This is not called a 'tax cut,' this is called Welfare.

Corporal Daniel James, 45, worked for Britain's top commander in Afghanistan when he was recruited by Iran as a spy. According to prosecutors in the case against James which started this week the Corporal decided to spy for Iran after missing out on a promotion. James believed he missed the promotion and other 'suffering' due to racism, prosecutors believe.
Interesting about James' spy story is that he was not contacted by the Iranians himself. Rather, he approached them.
"The allegation in this case is that during the latter part of 2006, the defendant's loyalty to this country wavered and his loyalties turned to Iran, the country of his birth," prosecutor Mark Dennis said.
"He turned his back on those with whom he was serving in Afghanistan and sought to become an agent for a foreign power and to provide information which would or might be of use to those who were actually engaged in active conflict with the peace-keeping force."
Dennis told the court that James 'made telephone contact with Colonel Mohammad Hossein Heydari who worked as Iran's military attaché at its embassy in Kabul and sent him coded messages in emails.'
"He had access to areas and information that no other soldier of corporal rank would have, due to his working alongside the general," Dennis said.
James was in "a unique position to overhear and glean a good deal of operational or strategic information if he chose to do so," he said.
"As General Richards himself puts it, the defendant's value as a hostile intelligence agent to a third party with aims contrary to that of the ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) and the government of Afghanistan cannot be underestimated."
James was arrested in December 2006, a couple of months after he had first made contact with the Iranians and, according to prosecutors, luckily before he could give them any truly important information. Nonetheless, they found a USB stick with highly sensitive information in his personal belongings, which would probably have been given to Iran. The sensitive information included documents about troops movements and knowledge of insurgency activities.
As far as this conservative Dutchman is concerned, James should be locked up for life if proven guilty. Such a punishment would be light considering that he would have been given the death penalty only a few decades ago (and quite rightfully so). The most horrendous crime one can commit is betraying one's country, it doesn't get much worse than that. The punishment should be in line with the seriousness of the crime: life imprisonment, no possibility for an early release.

Before starting this post, I'd introduce myself; I am Michael van der Galien, co-founder and editor of PoliGazette, a mostly right-of-center news and opinion website. We are one of the fastest growing such sites on the Net.
I'm a 24-year old American Studies and Oriental Studies student at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen in the Netherlands. I'm a Dutch conservative, which makes me pretty centrist to right-of-center in the United States; that means, definitely not a 'liberal' but also definitely not a hardcore conservative either.
Thanks to Susan for letting me contribute to Wake Up America! I hope you all will enjoy my contributions.
The first post is called Using Wright. Here it goes:
In a recent blogpost for The Daily Beast conservative pundit Tucker Carlson argued that John McCain's campaign should attack Barack Obama for his ties to Rev. Jeremiah Wright of Trinity Church Chicago. As is well known, Wright is a radical anti-American preacher, yet Obama attended his church for 20 years. Wright is the man who 'brought Obama to Christ.' The latter even went so far as to call Wright his 'spiritual mentor' in his autobiography.
But he is a radical. Shortly after 9/11 Wright said: "We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye…America's chickens are coming home to roost."
In another sermon the good reverend had the following to say: "God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."
He also is in the habit of refering to America as AmeriKKKa, which is undoubtedly not a terminology most Americans would feel comfortable about.
There are enough videos out there which the McCain campaign could use to attack Obama over his ties to Wright - Hillary Clinton's campaign did so with magnificent results. She was trailing Obama in the polls before her campaign attacked Obama over Wright, but made a comeback once the attacks started. In the end, Obama was forced to quit his church, and to distance himself from Wright, even though he had tried to defend Wright initially.

Jesse Jackson will tell you first off, that he is not a member of the Obama team so anything he tells you is because through is son, who IS a member of the Obama team, and from his years of knowing the Obama team.
Last week he told gathers in Evian France (yes THAT Evian) that Senator Obama is going to make major changes in the way America operates in the world:
Now I wouldn't take Jackson's word alone, but when you add it to the voices of Malley, Power,Brzezinski, McPeak, Kurtzer, Cirincione, Hagel, Wright, and Casey there is disturbing evidence that Obama's public words do not match his intentions. More by clicking below

Senator Obama might not have sat through Reverend Jeremiah Wright's Sermons but he did a great job of trying to spread his Ideology throughout the world. Through the charity that he managed with William Ayers, the Annenberg Challenge (the same Annenberg that owns Factcheck.org) the Junior Senator from Illinois funded the "South Shore African Village Collaborative." The group taught teachers in Africa:
the United States is shaped by "capitalism, competitiveness, racism, sexism and oppression." According to Warfield-Coppock, these American values "have confused African American people and oriented them toward American definitions of achievement and success and away from traditional African values." American socialization has "proven to be dysfuntional and genocidal to the African American community," Warfield-Coppock tells us. The answer is the adolescent rites of passage movement, designed "to provide African American youth with the cultural information and values they would need to counter the potentially detrimental effects of a Eurocentrically oriented society."If that doesn't sound like the wrong-Reverend Wright, nothing does. But there is much more click in the link below

Winners! NP-endorsed candidates Patricia Martin (far left), Danny Davis (center), and Barack Obama (far right), celebrate with Chicago New Party members Ted Thomas and Ruth Schools after their victories in the Democratic Primary last month.
Bloggers New Zeal and The Big Feed discovered this photo of Barack Obama and other New Party socialists including Danny K Davis (center), from the front page of New Party News,
Spring 1996: Power Line reported that Obama is even quoted in this socialist newsletter.
Obama actively sought the New Party's endorsement and urged the Marxist members to join his campaigns. The New Party went so far as to claim Obama as an official member of their organisation. The New Party socialists were affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America.

Web Archives Confirm Barack Obama Was Member Of Socialist 'New Party' In 1996
In June sources released information that during his campaign for the State Senate in Illinois, Barack Obama was endorsed by an organization known as the Chicago "New Party". The 'New Party' was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA) to push forth the socialist principles of the DSA by focusing on winnable elections at a local level and spreading the Socialist movement upwards. The admittedly Socialist Organization experienced a moderate rise in numbers between 1995 and 1999. By 1999, however, the Socialist 'New Party' was essentially defunct after losing a supreme court challenge that ruled the organizations "fusion" reform platform as unconstitutional.
After allegations surfaced in early summer over the 'New Party's' endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists of America claimed that Obama was never a member of either organization. The DSA and 'New Party' then systematically attempted to cover up any ties between Obama and the Socialist Organizations. However, it now appears that Barack Obama was indeed a certified and acknowledged member of the DSA's New Party.
On Tuesday, I discovered a web page that had been scrubbed from the New Party's website. The web page which was published in October 1996, was an internet newsletter update on that years congressional races. Although the web page was deleted from the New Party's website, the non-profit Internet Archive Organization had archived the page.
From the October 1996 Update of the DSA 'New Party':"New Party members are busy knocking on doors, hammering down lawn signs, and phoning voters to support NP candidates this fall. Here are some of our key races...Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary)."
Link To The New Party Update
Beyond the archived web page from the Socialist New Party is the recognition by the "Progressive Populist" magazine in November 1996 that Obama was indeed an acknowledged member of the Socialist Party."New Party members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, including an at-large race for the Little Rock, Ark., City Council, a seat on the county board for Little Rock and the school board for Prince George's County, Md. Chicago is sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85% victory. New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago. "
Link To The November 1996 Progressive Populist Article
The Democratic Socialist Party of America published in their July/August Edition of New Ground 47 Newsletter."The Chicago New Party is increasely becoming a viable political organization that can make a different in Chicago politics. It is crucial for a political organization to have a solid infrastructure and visible results in its political program. The New Party has continued to solidify this base...the NP's '96 Political Program has been enormously successful with 3 of 4 endorsed candidates winning electoral primaries. All four candidates attended the NP membership meeting on April 11th to express their gratitude. Danny Davis, winner in the 7th Congressional District, invited NPers to join his Campaign Steering Committee. Patricia Martin, who won the race for Judge in 7th Subcircuit Court, explained that due to the NP she was able to network and get experienced advice from progressives like Davis. Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration."
Link To DSA Article
Obama's membership within the 'New Party' is disturbing as even Green Party members attacked the DSA and New Party as nothing more than a fringe group. The New Party had hoped to implement Socialist Rule in the United States and was established to counteract the influence of a Democratic Party that they viewed as too moderate and too centered. Now it seems that nearly 10 years after the socialist party fell apart, their strategy of upward growth has reached the White House. Obama's ties to the DSA's New Party is beyond just an association it is outright membership, as clearly defined by the parties August 1996 newsletter, in an outright Socialist organization.
A note from Radarsite: The above articles are a special gift for those of you who have long been claiming that Barack Obama was -- and still is -- a Socialist. Here is your proof positive. How, I wonder, will the Obamaites squirm and try to wriggle their way out of these blatant facts?
The very last thing this country needs is a confirmed Socialist in the White House. What more do we need to know about the slippery Barack Obama before we say No Way!

A note from Radarsite: So you think you know all there is to know about Bill Ayers and his lovely wife Bernadine Dorhn, right? Wrong. Dead wrong. They were just mixed up young kids, "War Protesters", even "60's radicals. But what they did was in the end pretty harmless and they have since repented. Well, get ready for some shocking revelations from Vodka Pundit's Will Collier. Traitorous, murderous and unrepentant -- these are just a few of the words which come to mind. There are many others of course. Read the following bombshell article and ask yourself what are the most appropriate words to describe these two treacherous and amoral creatures, these undeniable associates of our deceptive and elusive presidential candidate.
And, whatever you do, don't forget about the rings, those shameful rings of death. - rg

Why Ayers Matters
Posted by Will Collier on 05 Oct 2008 at 02:54 pm
The media is atwitter today over Sarah Palin's pointing out something they and their candidate of choice would just as soon went unnoticed: Barack Obama's history with Bill Ayers, late of the Weatherman Underground. Given the lack of coverage over Ayers, to say nothing of his connections to Obama, one might well wonder, what's the big deal? Why would anybody care whether Obama was friends with some ex-hippie who protested the Vietnam War, way back when Obama was just a kid?

Yesterday we reported on Sarah Palin smacking Barack Obama around on the issue of abortion and today we see, via The Politico, that The Family Research Council has produced an ad nailing Obama on the abortion issue.
YouTube URL of the ad here and the video below:
This ad goes directly to Obama's promise to overturn the partial birth abortion ban.
More from David Brody here.
For those that do not know what Partial Birth Abortion is, here is a quick guide:
To see additional, more detailed images of partial-birth abortion, and documentation from medical experts on the accuracy of these images, click here.
This is the banned procedure that Barack Obama wants to overturn the ban on...look hard. What kind of monster would not want this banned?

Major H/T to No Quarters here and I agree with Susan UnPC about finding it difficult to title this piece because it is so ridiculous.
Howard Stern has never been one of my favorite people, personal reasons, but this bit is so unreal and almost unbelievable that it has to be heard.
Why do Obama supporters support Obama? Anyone crazy enough to say "because of his policies", stop right there, say nothing and listen for yourself as Obama supporters are asked about his policies and which ones they are favoring Obama regarding.....thing is, the person asking the questions substituted McCain's policies and Obama supporters completely backed those policies...when they thought they were Obama's.
YouTube URL here and video below.. you have to hear this idiocy by Obama supporters to be able to believe it for yourselves.
I mean really, the Obama supporters actually believed Sarah Palin was Obama's VP choice AND they supports the choice of Palin as VP....
Posted: 13 Oct 2008 01:46 PM CDT
Yesterday we asked why the media was reporting a McCain supporter calling Barack Obama an "Arab" and completely ignoring Obama supporters calling Sarah Palin a cunt, even wearing T-shirts with the phrase "Sarah Palin is a cunt" on them.
This morning I see a quite a few links to yesterday's post, as well as some news outlets finally reporting it (ABC's Political Punch, LA Times' Top of the Ticket, The Politico and it was mentioned on Fox News at 9 a.m.)
In following a couple of the links to the original piece written here at WUA, I find there are more wearing those T-Shirts, named and posing proudly.... members of WOW staff, to be exact.
This is the mentality of certain Obama supporters...is anyone surprised?
I bet their parents are just so proud of them.
[Update] Another link to that original post led me to Freedom Eden who shows us that CafePress is even selling "Republicunt" T-shirts with a photo of Sarah Palin on them.
Freedom Eden shows others referring to Palin as a "bitch" and "Ho"...go look for yourself.

Economists from all over have signed letters opposing Barack Obama's Economics plan and so-called tax cuts which equal country "welfare" where he has tried to create the illusion that 'redistribution" of wealth is really called "tax cuts", which we discussed earlier here at WUA.
The full economists' statement on Barack Obama's economic proposals:
Barack Obama argues that his proposals to raise tax rates and halt international trade agreements would benefit the American economy. They would do nothing of the sort. Economic analysis and historical experience show that they would do the opposite. They would reduce economic growth and decrease the number of jobs in America. Moreover, with the credit crunch, the housing slump, and high energy prices weakening the U.S. economy, his proposals run a high risk of throwing the economy into a deep recession. It was exactly such misguided tax hikes and protectionism, enacted when the U.S. economy was weak in the early 1930s, that greatly increased the severity of the Great Depression.
The list of signatures is at the bottom of the link above.
The original letter and signatures can be found here.
Last but not least, you have the Statement on Senator McCain's Economic Plan from Economists:
We enthusiastically support John McCain's economic plan. It is a comprehensive, pro-growth, reform agenda. The reform focuses on the real economic problems Americans face today and will face in the future. And it builds on the core economic principles that have made America great.
Another large list of Economists signatures listed below that letter as well.

John McCain's speech in Virginia Beach as prepared for delivery, via the McCain/Palin website:
Three weeks from now, you will choose a new President. Choose well. There is much at stake.
These are hard times. Our economy is in crisis. Financial markets are collapsing. Credit is drying up. Your savings are in danger. Your retirement is at risk. Jobs are disappearing. The cost of health care, your children's college, gasoline and groceries are rising all the time with no end in sight. While your most important asset -- your home -- is losing value every day.
Americans are fighting in two wars. We face many enemies in this dangerous world, and they are waiting to see if our current troubles will permanently weaken us.
The next President won't have time to get used to the office. He won't have the luxury of studying up on the issues before he acts. He will have to act immediately. And to do that, he will need experience, courage, judgment and a bold plan of action to take this country in a new direction. We cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: waiting for our luck to change. The hour is late; our troubles are getting worse; our enemies watch. We have to act immediately. We have to change direction now. We have to fight.
I've been fighting for this country since I was seventeen years old, and I have the scars to prove it. If I'm elected President, I will fight to take America in a new direction from my first day in office until my last. I'm not afraid of the fight, I'm ready for it.
I'm not going to spend $700 billion dollars of your money just bailing out the Wall Street bankers and brokers who got us into this mess. I'm going to make sure we take care of the people who were devastated by the excesses of Wall Street and Washington. I'm going to spend a lot of that money to bring relief to you, and I'm not going to wait sixty days to start doing it.
I have a plan to protect the value of your home and get it rising again by buying up bad mortgages and refinancing them so if your neighbor defaults he doesn't bring down the value of your house with him.
I have a plan to let retirees and people nearing retirement keep their money in their retirement accounts longer so they can rebuild their savings.
I have a plan to rebuild the retirement savings of every worker.
I have a plan to hold the line on taxes and cut them to make America more competitive and create jobs here at home.
Raising taxes makes a bad economy much worse. Keeping taxes low creates jobs, keeps money in your hands and strengthens our economy.
The explosion of government spending over the last eight years has put us deeper in debt to foreign countries that don't have our best interests at heart. It weakened the dollar and made everything you buy more expensive.
If I'm elected President, I won't spend nearly a trillion dollars more of your money, on top of the $700 billion we just gave the Treasury Secretary, as Senator Obama proposes. Because he can't do that without raising your taxes or digging us further into debt. I'm going to make government live on a budget just like you do.
I will freeze government spending on all but the most important programs like defense, veterans care, Social Security and health care until we scrub every single government program and get rid of the ones that aren't working for the American people. And I will veto every single pork barrel bill Congresses passes.
If I'm elected President, I won't fine small businesses and families with children, as Senator Obama proposes, to force them into a new huge government run health care program, while I keep the cost of the fine a secret until I hit you with it. I will bring down the skyrocketing cost of health care with competition and choice to lower your premiums, and make it more available to more Americans. I'll make sure you can keep the same health plan if you change jobs or leave a job to stay home.
I will provide every single American family with a $5000 refundable tax credit to help them purchase insurance. Workers who already have health care insurance from their employers will keep it and have more money to cover costs. Workers who don't have health insurance can use it to find a policy anywhere in this country to meet their basic needs.
If I'm elected President, I won't raise taxes on small businesses, as Senator Obama proposes, and force them to cut jobs. I will keep small business taxes where they are, help them keep their costs low, and let them spend their earnings to create more jobs.
If I'm elected President, I won't make it harder to sell our goods overseas and kill more jobs as Senator Obama proposes. I will open new markets to goods made in America and make sure our trade is free and fair. And I'll make sure we help workers who've lost a job that won't come back find a new one that won't go away.
The last President to raise taxes and restrict trade in a bad economy as Senator Obama proposes was Herbert Hoover. That didn't turn out too well. They say those who don't learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Well, my friends, I know my history lessons, and I sure won't make the mistakes Senator Obama will.
If I'm elected President, we're going to stop sending $700 billion to countries that don't like us very much. I won't argue to delay drilling for more oil and gas and building new nuclear power plants in America, as Senator Obama does. We will start new drilling now. We will invest in all energy alternatives -- nuclear, wind, solar, and tide. We will encourage the manufacture of hybrid, flex fuel and electric automobiles. We will invest in clean coal technology. We will lower the cost of energy within months, and we will create millions of new jobs.
Let me give you the state of the race today. We have 22 days to go. We're 6 points down. The national media has written us off. Senator Obama is measuring the drapes, and planning with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid to raise taxes, increase spending, take away your right to vote by secret ballot in labor elections, and concede defeat in Iraq. But they forgot to let you decide. My friends, we've got them just where we want them.
What America needs in this hour is a fighter; someone who puts all his cards on the table and trusts the judgment of the American people. I come from a long line of McCains who believed that to love America is to fight for her. I have fought for you most of my life. There are other ways to love this country, but I've never been the kind to do it from the sidelines.
I know you're worried. America is a great country, but we are at a moment of national crisis that will determine our future. Will we continue to lead the world's economies or will we be overtaken? Will the world become safer or more dangerous? Will our military remain the strongest in the world? Will our children and grandchildren's future be brighter than ours?
My answer to you is yes. Yes, we will lead. Yes, we will prosper. Yes, we will be safer. Yes, we will pass on to our children a stronger, better country. But we must be prepared to act swiftly, boldly, with courage and wisdom.
I know what fear feels like. It's a thief in the night who robs your strength.
I know what hopelessness feels like. It's an enemy who defeats your will.
I felt those things once before. I will never let them in again. I'm an American. And I choose to fight.
Don't give up hope. Be strong. Have courage. And fight.
Fight for a new direction for our country.
Fight for what's right for America.
Fight to clean up the mess of corruption, infighting and selfishness in Washington.
Fight to get our economy out of the ditch and back in the lead.
Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.
Fight for our children's future.
Fight for justice and opportunity for all.
Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.
Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. America is worth fighting for. Nothing is inevitable here. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.
Now, let's go win this election and get this country moving again.
