The state of our union is strong because the American people are strong. It’s not strong because of the Big Government policies of the Obama administration, enabled by Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

It’s not strong because we’re almost $20 trillion in debt—debt incurred during both the Bush and Obama administrations.

It’s not strong because we’re taking over one trillion extra dollars in federal taxes [every year] away from hard working Americans over the course of Obama’s two terms.

It’s strong because the American people understand liberty, and they cherish liberty. They understand that this country was founded on a belief that every human being, every American, has a natural right to pursue happiness in any way they choose, as long as they don’t hurt anyone, and they don’t take their stuff.
