This is the greatest society in all of human history, the greatest country ever. Many of the decisions being made in Washington today by both parties are threatening that greatness. And if we stay on this road we’re on right now, our children are going to be the first generation of Americans to inherit a diminished country. – Marco Rubio

I support Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, for President of the United States because I share his views regarding a needed change of direction for our country. Rubio understands that our self-interest has to be timed with pushing towards a world that respects American values.

Rubio fears that the American dream has lost its meaning; that people have forgotten what makes America special. He knows that America is the greatest country in the world, and he has experience this first hand. “My dad was a bartender,” Rubio once told the public, “My mom was a maid. They never made it big. They were never rich. And yet they were successful. Because just a few decades removed from hopelessness, they made possible for us, all the things that had been impossible for them.”

Marco Rubio is the only candidate that will unite the Republican party and bring the next generation of conservative leadership to our country. He is a consistent conservative who is respectful but more importantly he is respected. Rubio gained 10.6% of the NH primary voters attention.
I also fear the direction of our country and understand that if we don’t get this election right, there may be no turning back, that’s why I support Florida Senator, Marco Rubio for President of the United States.
