"America’s fiscal soundness can’t be repaired without a significant political shift away from the principles of progressivism and collectivism that have become entrenched at each level of government. We are attempting to turn the ship of state in a positive direction without descending into chaos or succumbing to weakness and corruption: an effort there are few if any historical models for. But there is no fate dictating that we can’t be the nation that achieves this. We have not even begun to tap the idled resources that can be brought to bear, to restore our character, our economy, and our fiscal integrity."
