No true reform is possible that leaves government intact. Appeals to a government for a redress of grievances, even when acted upon, only increase the supposed legitimacy of the government's acts, and add to its amassed power. -- Fred Woodworth

Marco Rubio kicks off CPAC

Posted by Dan Barrett - February 18, 2010

Senator Jim DeMint introduced Marco Rubio who said, “2010 is a referendum on the very identity of our nation and issues are so big… that many of the old rules of political engagement don’t apply.” CPAC started off with an articulated speech by the Florida Senatorial Candidate who pushed for jobs created by the private sector rather than politicians. He exclaimed, “let’s reform the tax code and reduce the tax rates across the board… lower the corporate tax rate…” Rubio went on to mention the hopeful death of the punishing death tax, a tax that shackles Americans with a 45% penalty on nest eggs.
