Marco Rubio gave the GOP weekly address this weekend, and reminded us of two things: 1) Why the Democrats so feared him, and; 2) why America is such an exceptional nation. A portion of the transcript from the LA Times blog:
America is the single greatest nation on earth, a place without equal in the history of all mankind. A place built on free enterprise, where the employee can become the employer. Where small businesses are started every day in a spare bedroom and where someone like me, the son of a bartender and maid, can become a United States Senator.
I know about the unique exceptionalism of our country. Not because I read about it in a book, I’ve seen it through my own eyes. You see, I was raised in a community of exiles, by people who lost their country, people who once had dreams like we do today but had to come to a foreign shore to find them.
