Waking up to figure out that our country isn't we're heading in the wrong direction. And were looking guy. That can fix it and turn this economy around and create jobs so we're excited to introduce the next president of the United States. And. -- -- Now this is not the first time you gave your vote of confidence in this time I got a ticket to the White House. Okay. Four years ago candidate Obama came to Nevada promising to help. But after he was elected. His help was telling people to skip coming here for conventions and meetings. Today Nevada unemployment is over 12%. Home values have plummeted. And -- that -- foreclosure rate is the highest in the nation. I've walked in Nevada neighborhoods. Blighted by -- -- homes. Where people wonder why Barack Obama failed them. Well Mr. President Nevada has had enough of your -- -- A. Years -- Newly elected President Obama told America that congress approved his plan to borrow. Nearly a trillion dollars. He would hold unemployment below 8%. It has the men below 8% sense. This week he's been try to take a bow. For eight point 3% unemployment not so fast Mr. President. This is the 36. Straight month with unemployment about the Red Line your own administration drew. And if you take into account all the people are struggling. For a work. -- just out looking the real unemployment rate is over 15%. Mr. President. America has also had enough of your kind of help. Let me ask you hear -- question. Did obamacare encourage businesses to hire more people. Did Dodd-Frank get banks to renegotiate and make more loans. Did the LA and -- -- -- the national labor relations -- attack. I'm -- in South Carolina encourage employers to expand air. -- efforts to block the domestic production of energy. At the Keystone Pipeline -- job creation. And that those billions of dollars the president sent to his Green energy bodies give anyone here -- job. Mr. President what we welcome any good news on the jobs front. But it is thanks to the innovation of the American people in the private sector and not to you Mr. President. Okay. -- Okay. Yeah. This president this -- policies made these tough times. Last longer. Earlier in the week he spoke with a woman from Texas during an -- of that she told -- that her husband has been out of work for three years. President Obama said that he found that interest thing. -- -- Really. I've got a better word tragic. America. -- a president who can fix the economy because he understands the economy and I do well I. And -- This president began his presidency by apologizing. For America he should now be able. Apologizing -- The it. We're not gonna settle we're not gonna settle for a president who tells us it could be worse. What defines us as Americans as -- conviction that things must be better. That conviction guides this campaign it's rallied millions of Americans are cause. Including tens of thousands -- of Adams who gave me their support here today and I thank. The fans know that our future is brighter and better than these troubled times. It's better than 15% real unemployment. It's better than fifteen trillion dollars and that. It's better than that this data policies and broken promises of the last three years. And the failed leadership of one man. Our campaign is about. More than just replacing the president however. This campaign about him in -- -- of America. President Obama says he wants to fundamentally. Transform America we want to restore America that founding principles that made this country great. Okay. And our vision for the pitcher could not be more different than it is. President Obama will grow government and amassed more trillion dollar deficits I don't. -- slow the growth of government I will not it I want to. Okay. Not this freeze government share of the total economy. I will reduce it and without raising taxes wolf finally balance the American budget. President Obama's brand of capitalism -- your money. To his friends companies. My vision for free enterprise is to return on ownership of the genius consumer markets and to the creativity of the American people. Okay. Like his colleagues in the fact that -- -- think -- -- better. President Obama demonized as -- denigrates almost every sector economy. Islands that make America the most attractive place in the world -- doors for innovators for job. Okay. And by the way I'd like the other people running for president. I know just how to do that. -- If I'm elected president my priority will be worrying about your job not sit in my own. Okay. As you know one of the most important important and personal matters of our lives our our health care health care -- Obama would turn. The decision making it over to government bureaucrats. He forced to obamacare. I will repeal obamacare. OK. Yeah. President. Just this week President Obama orders religious organizations to violate their conscience. I want the -- religious liberty and overturned anti regulation that tramples on our first freedom our right to worship as we. Okay. President. President Obama is shrinking our military. At hollowing out our national defense. I would insist on the military's so powerful that no one of the world -- -- -- at Talladega. Are. President Obama seems to believe that America's role as leader of the world is a thing of the past. I believe the 21 century will be and must -- -- American century. Okay. Our mission is to increase the freedom and opportunity of the American people and our blueprint. Is the constitution of the United States. It. Good to build an America where hope is a new job with a paycheck not a -- word -- an old bumper sticker. I will not attempt to bribe the voters with promises of new programs and -- subsidies. An ever increasing checks government if this election is a bidding war. -- promised the most benefits that I'm not your president. You have that president today. But if you -- -- make this election about restoring American greatness. And I hope you'll join with us. Okay. -- believe the disappointments the last few years are -- -- and not our destiny that I am asking for your vote. I'm asking. I'm asking -- it. As -- -- to remember how special it is to be an American. I want to remember why it was you or your ancestors who sacrificed to come to America and overcome the challenges of life a -- country. Why they came here it was not for a free ticket. It was for freedom. It was not for the pursuit of government benefits. It was for the pursuit of happiness. Okay. -- still believe. America we still believe in the America that is a land of opportunity. And a beacon of freedom. We believe in the America that challenges each of us to be bigger and better than ourselves. This election. We must fight for the America we love. We believe that America. Thank you so much about.
