For more than 40 years we have been a nation divided: red states versus blue states, liberals versus conservatives, employers versus employees, gun rights versus gun control, and the minority versus the majority.
It need not be this way.
Deep down inside, we share a vision for America:
Our vision for America is a land of opportunity, a place where, if we work hard, we can all achieve the American Dream.
Our vision for America is a land of freedom, a place where red tape can only be found at the hardware store.
Our vision for America is a land of fairness, a place where we are not held back nor see others unfairly advanced ahead of us.
Our vision for America is a land of profound natural beauty, not only for ourselves, but also for our children and grandchildren.
Our vision for America is a land where our children will be prepared for the future, growing up in a safe environment that fosters learning.
Our vision for America is a land of safe neighborhoods, a place where we can walk the streets of any city at night without fearing harassment.
Our vision for America is a land at peace, a nation of friendship deemed untouchable by tyrants and extremists alike, a place where we achieve safety without compromising law-abiding citizens' rights.
Our vision for America is a nation with a government serving its citizens efficiently and effectively, one which allows us to minimize our taxes without hurting our quality of life.
Our vision for America is a nation united, the same vision our Founding Fathers had when they established this country, a place where we work together to achieve a shared vision and win-win solutions for all of us.
We are the United States of America. It is vision that we share. By making the right choices, we can make this shared vision a reality.
