As we're in OOC: True story that @RP Overlord will love to hear

When I passed my graduation in B2 in English there were texts about the new cigarette system invented since the end of the 2000's and one of these texts was talking about the "passage to the light side of the force" with this new way to quit smoking.

I directly thought to this place...

@RP Overlord I had pre-emptively said I could probably play Perot in '92, but it appears likely now I likely won't have the spare time or energy to commit to such a thing between now and the summer months.

Robertson Presidential Nomination Acceptance Speech

 

Four years ago the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention told us that America was a tale of two cities -- the "haves" and the "have-nots." The rich and the poor. The upper class and the lower class.

We heard a variation on that message from Jesse Jackson, and Teddy Kennedy, and every Democrat who spoke last month at their convention in Atlanta.

Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come for truth. The message of the Democratic Party is a message of defeat -- division -- and despair. They did not speak for the American people under McGovern or Mondale or Carter, and they do not speak for America today!

But that speaker who compared America to A Tale of Two Cities was right in a way he never intended.

 

That great novel by Charles Dickens begins with a double sentence: "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times."

In 1980 Ronald Reagan and George Bush began a long journey to rescue this country from the "worst of times." From double-digit inflation -- soaring interest rates -- and widespread unemployment.

As Republicans, our task in 1988 is to continue that journey and build the greatness of America through moral strength.

Exactly two months and 22 days from tonight some 100 million of our fellow citizens will go to their polling places to choose the future course of the United States of America.

Our tale of two cities is really a choice between two paths. Two visions of America. Two philosophies of the future.

When Charles Dickens wrote his epic novel he described in heartrending detail the consequences that the right and wrong choices made on two cities in Europe.

In city number one, under the deceptive slogan liberty, equality, fraternity -- the people with revolutionary zeal threw out God, the church, established morality, the established government, their former leaders, sound currency, and some of the private ownership of property. Then they demanded that the new government buy them happiness.

Instead of the government inspired utopia, which the people thought they would get, they got liberal divorce laws and a breakup of families, anarchy, looting, ruinous inflation, and financial chaos.

As the madness fed on itself, they got something much worse -- the reign of terror. A time when no one's life was safe from the dreaded guillotine. The second city followed a very different course. There, faith in God was maintained. There was even a spiritual revival under John Wesley. Respect for the rule of law prevailed. Instead of wild excess, there was self-control and self-restraint. The currency was strong and families were stable. Private property was protected and life was held sacred. With all its faults, England created a strong, stable conservative government that survived with prosperity for a hundred years.

And so, these two cities made choices in 1789 that shaped their future for decades, for generations, to come. And now, 200 years later, America faces its choice.

The Democrats have given us a clear picture of their city. They offer unlimited government, massive transfers of wealth from the productive sector of society to the nonproductive, and ever-increasing regulation of the daily lives of the people and their children.

In the city of the Democratic Party, the liberal mindset reigns supreme. Criminals are turned loose and the innocent are made victims. Disease carriers are protected and the healthy are placed at great risk.

In the Democrat's city, welfare dependency flourishes and no one is held accountable for his or her behavior. Society is always to blame.

In the Democrat's city, the rights of the majority must always take a back seat to the clamorous demands of the special interest minorities. And yet, in their city it is always the majority that must pay the bills, through higher and higher taxes.

Now the Democratic Party has discovered the family. They want us all to be one-big-family. But let's keep in mind that they want you and me to be in one family with Jim Wright as the daddy, Barbara Mikulski as the mommy. And Teddy Kennedy as big brother. I can't speak for you, but I believe I'd rather pick my own relatives.

To build their city, the Democratic Party has selected Al Gore as architect. I submit to you tonight that Michael Dukakis is the most liberal candidate ever put forward for the presidency by any major party in American history.

 

In fact, the city the Democrats hope to build is so bad that they are ashamed to mention the word that describes who they are and what they really want to do. They don't want to say it, so they just call it the "L" word.

They know that their programs will require massive new revenue, but in their platform they did not mention once the vehicle they will use to raise the money -- they just call it the "T" word.

Whether by silence, whether by initials, or whether in a foreign language -- it's still tax and spend liberalism and the American people are too smart to fall for it again.

There is another word that the Democrats did not mention once in their platform and not once in the acceptance speech of their candidate. It is a "G" word.

The name of God.

Ladies and gentlemen, our President, Ronald Reagan, was not ashamed to ask the assembled delegates at our convention in Detroit to bow their heads in silent prayer to God. As Americans, we are not ashamed to pledge allegiance to a flag that is a symbol of one nation under God.

And I submit to you that our Party, the Republican Party, assembled here in New Orleans, is not ashamed to write into our National Platform our solemn resolve that the children of this country will once again be allowed to pray to God in the classrooms of America.

As an aside, I should mention that Al Gore is a tree-hugging card carrying member of the ACLU, an organization dedicated to removing all public affirmation of religious faith in America. As President, Al Gore will pack the federal courts with ACLU radicals and Far-Left Environmentalist nuts. If there were no other reason, and there are many, to deny Al Gore the Presidency, this is a reason enough for all of us to vote against him in November.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Republican Party wants to write a tale of another city.

We are the children of those who tamed the wilderness, spanned a continent, and brought forth the greatest nation on the face of the earth. We are the heirs of those who enriched the world with the electric light, the telephone, the airplane, mass-produced automobiles, the transistor, and countless wonderful inventions.

Yet we are the heirs of a more enduring legacy than mere material progress. We are heirs of a legacy of ideas -- a legacy of freedom -- of equality -- of opportunity. A legacy of government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We are the heirs of an experiment in freedom that has given hope and promise to all of the people on this earth.

 

We see a city set on a hill. A shining light of freedom for all of the nations to see and admire. A city made great by the moral strength and self-reliance of her people.

A city where husbands and wives love each other and families hold together.

A city where every child, whether rich or poor, has available to him the very best education in the world.

A city where the elderly live out their lives with respect and dignity, and where the unborn child is safe in his mother's womb.

A city where the plague of drugs is no more and those who would destroy and debase our children with illegal drugs are given life sentences in prison with no chance for parole.

A city where the streets are safe. Where criminals are locked up and the law abiding can walk about without fear.

A city where the water is pure to drink, the air clean to breathe, and the citizens respect and care for the soil, the forests, and God's other creatures who share with us the earth, the sky, and the water.

A city with limited government but unlimited opportunity for all people.

 

We are Republicans, and we believe in government that is our servant, not our master.

We believe that the wisdom of the millions who make up the marketplace is greater than the wisdom of the few who serve in government.

We want a balanced budget, but we believe the way to balance the budget is to cut waste and mismanagement in government, not to raise the taxes on the American people.

There is a word to describe us. It is a "C" word. We are conservatives, and we are proud of it!

In November the voters will choose their version of a Tale of Two Cities.

Some people say that they don't care what choice the voters make in November. That it doesn't really matter.

I say to you tonight, We care because it does matter. It matters to us and our children whether we vote Democrat or whether we vote Republican.

And we care whether the successor to a great President, Ronald Reagan, is a liberal who returns us to the failed policies of Jimmy Carter or a principled conservative like myself, who will dutifully serve, not master, who moves us proudly into the nineteen nineties.

Etched in my mind is the memory of a 40-year-old black man. He was strong -- he was honest -- he was hardworking -- he was handsome. He was a family man with a wife and a couple of children.

He was building a place for himself and his family, when one day tragedy struck him.

You see he couldn't read and write. He had been running a loading dock for a fertilizer distributor. He got along by memorizing the colors of the products that he handled, until the company changed the labels, and he made so many mistakes that they had to let him go.

His life is now in shambles. His pride is gone. His hopes and dreams are gone. He is one more on the welfare rolls. He is one of the 30 million functional illiterates in America who have been shortchanged by our educational establishment.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, I want to be known as the "Education President." Together we can make our schools the best in the world if we follow a few simple steps: (1) We must guarantee to our children a disciplined, drug-free, crime-free school environment. Tough school principals should be made community heroes not community scapegoats. (2) We must recognize that the so-called new age curriculum of progressive education is a colossal failure and must be replaced. (3) We must place control of education in the hands of parents and teachers in the local communities and take it away from Washington, the Federal Courts, and the liberal leadership of a powerful teachers union. (4) We must give to every parent the maximum freedom to decide what school is best for his or her child. Empowering parents with vouchers and educational choice at the state and local level is an idea whose time has come.

Yet some would say, we can never have better education without stronger families.

In part they are right. In my opinion the breakup of the American family is the number one social problem in our nation today. Half of our marriages end in divorce. Over fifteen million children now live with a single parent. According to press reports, over half of the women with children in the black community do not have any man in residence.

Single women with children are the fastest growing segment of the poor in our land. We speak of the "feminization" of poverty. But what has government done about the problem?

Successive Democratic Congresses have raised the tax burden on parents with children an estimated 245 percent over a 20-year period.

In one year Federal taxpayer's money was used to institute an estimated 225,000 divorce actions. It has been estimated that 30 percent of all divorces in America are caused by misguided welfare laws.

More cruel than all this is the assumption begun by Lyndon Johnson's Great Society programs that the poor did not have to strive, to learn, to compete, to excel.

This attitude fostered dependency, then hopelessness, then despair.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are Republicans and we believe some basic truths:

(1) Government must seek to strengthen families not tear them apart.

(2) Parents are responsible for their own children. If a man fathers a child, that child is not the responsibility of the city, the state, or the federal government. That child is his responsibility and he and the child's mother should be made to look after it.

(3) Women in our society should have complete access to challenging and rewarding careers. If women in our society do the same work as men they should receive the same pay as men for that equal work.

(4) We also need to stop punishing women in our society who choose to be homemakers. If in our society we can afford to give tax deductions and credits to working women with children, we also can afford to give tax deductions and credits to women who want to stay at home and care for their children.

(5) The goal of welfare must be to restore people in crisis to dignity and useful employment ... not to create a class of government dependents for whom welfare is a way of life. Whatever the Democrats may tell you, that is not the way to "keep hope alive."

But hope is very much alive in America today. It is alive because our vision, the Republican vision, expresses the hopes and the dreams of the vast majority of the American people.

And, as we leave New Orleans, we will go back to our homes confident that we are a-party united around a platform that expresses the American spirit -- a platform we can be proud to share with our neighbors all over this great nation.

Now, I would like to give a personal, special message to the millions of voters, volunteers, and supporters across America who committed themselves to my campaign. I thank you. I am very proud of you. Now, the time has come for you to make your choice.

I am honored to have been chosen by this esteemed convention as your nominee for President. I will take up that mantle for the American people, the Middle Class, the Lower Class, the Upper Class, all of whom look to a better future with the Robertson administration in charge. President Reagan said it best when he said we must turn the Reagan Revolution into the Robertson Revolution. That is an honor I gladly accept for all Americans.

And so now, we cast our eyes toward November, we know that a new page of history will be written.

With the help of the Conservative Grassroots, the people who have pushed me this far, on that page we will inscribe the name of the 41st President of the United States.

With your support, and the support of all Anti-Establishment Americans seeking, Growth, Culture, and Opportunity, his name will be Pat Robertson!

Thank you, and God bless you!

Look at the Robertson speech on T.V. from his office:

Bob Dole Vice Presidential Speech

 

I thank the American People who are so dedicated to the prosperity of our Government to tune in today. I am Bob Dole, the man who's one mission was to go out and unite the American People. It was an honor to become Robertson's Vice President after an intense campaign, and I am happy to say that I will not be compromising on any promises to serve on this administration. It is important to me that the American People are represented by people who will not flip flop on their beliefs because someone else tells them too. My role in this administration? To serve the American People and work with Robertson to pass policy that truly matters. We will not let our country crumble, we can only grow! Join me my fellow Americans in celebrating the assembly of this administration that will strive to preserve our culture, grow our economy, and ultimately provide security for the entire population of the United States of America!

 

This is kept rather short as typically Vice Presidential nominees don't talk that much at the convention...

Al Gore in Wisconsin at a major rally, revealing two major points of the Democratic manifesto.

senator-al-gore-celebrating-his-victory-

You know, the Democratic party made major change by bringing me to the honor of serving our party.

I'm only 40 years old, but as I promised to the Convention we have major plans for the country.

Today we officialy reveal two points from our Democratic manifesto for America, here in Wisconsin:

 

Homosexual and Transexual Rights:

The Democratic Party is comitted to

-Negotiate a federal ban on the last states' laws which condemn homosexuality as a deviance.

-Open a national debate on more rights for Homosexuals, let to the state decision.

-Officially accept that Transexual people who changed their gender genetically also have the opportunity to change their gender on the civil ID.

 

And a path to seduce the Libertarians who gone to the Republicans and to keep my Left "fulani" wing.

 

Agriculture:

The Democratic Party is comitted to:

-Create a national cotas on farm produces

-Devellop a national budget to support farmers for 6 to 24 months in the duty to let them the choice between leaving the activity or invest in technologies

-Devellop education reformations for the farmers who want to leave the profession

-Support R and D in modernized Agriculture to reduce the costs of production.

Mississipi valley I own you.

A call to his VIP:

Michael? Soon it will be your time to cross the North! Essentially the Rust bell. I manage the South ( @TheLiberalKitten)
