Vice President Mike Pence just ended the speculation. Now the Democrats will put a target on his back like never before, but he can handle whatever they throw at him.
Speaking at the Young America’s Foundation (YAF) National Conservative Student Conference — an annual event in Washington, DC — Pence boldly contrasted the differences between freedom and socialism.
Pence said, “It was freedom, not socialism, that ended slavery, won two world wars and stands today as a beacon of hope for all the world.”
He continued: “It was freedom, not socialism, that’s moving us beyond the prejudices of the past to create a more perfect union and extend the blessings of liberty to every American regardless of race or creed or color.”
Pence’s rousing speech, which set the tone for the 2020 election, couldn’t have been more appropriate — he’s always been a powerful orator, and his address to the YAF conference may have been his most passionate yet.
It truly is a choice between freedom and socialism. On one hand, you have the crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates who keep offering more “free stuff,” then you have Trump and Pence carrying the banner of liberty. It will soon be time to choose again.
