This was a well written speech, but I am not certain how he could do the speech with a straight face. Most of the policies he backs are damaging to all these freedoms of which he was speaking. The Obama administration would like to shut down news outlets it does not agree with and would like to take control of the internet.. He can not find any way of cutting spending unless it is for our defense. He wants to increase taxes and is always in favor of more regulations which makes it more difficult to to start a business or for businesses to grow. He is against energy independence which could provide many good jobs. Green Energy has proven it self and has been to be a long well known fact it is more expensive and will not provide us with energy independence. Most of the Green Jobs created have been overseas or moved overseas. Not to say anything about our spending has reduced our credit rating and is about to take another hit.
