Mike Pence stepped up attacks on Joe Biden with an aggressive speech Friday delivered in the birthplace of the Republican Party, casting the election in under four months as a choice "between freedom and opportunity and socialism and decline." (July 17)
MIKE PENCE: You know, it's not so much whether America will be more conservative, or more liberal, more Republican, or Democrat, more red, or blue. It's whether America remains America. It's whether we will leave to our children and our grandchildren a country grounded in our highest ideals of freedom, free markets, and the inalienable right to life and liberty. Or whether we will leave to our children and grandchildren a country that is fundamentally transformed into something else.
Before us are two paths, one based on the dignity of every individual, and the other on the growing control of the state. Our road leads to greater freedom and opportunity. Their road leads to socialism and decline. Joe Biden would be nothing more than an auto-pen president, a Trojan horse for a radical agenda, so radical, so all encompassing that it would transform this country into something utterly unrecognizable.
Their agenda is based on government control. Our agenda is based on freedom. Under President Donald Trump, we will support law enforcement, improve public safety, and stand with African-American families and all our minorities to improve the quality of life in our cities and towns. The hard truth is you won't be safe in Joe Biden's America.
