I have heard a lot of speeches in my lifetime, and this has to be one of the best.
After watching this I bet you will never look at John McCain the same way again.
One of my favorite parts starts around 23:01:
Now our opponents tell you not to worry about their tax increases.
They tell you they are not going to tax your family.
No, they’re just going to tax ”businesses”! So unless you buy something from a ”business”, like groceries or clothes or gasoline … or unless you get a paycheck from a big or a small ”business”, don’t worry … it’s not going to affect you.
They say they are not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the ”other” side of the bucket! That’s their idea of tax reform.
This speech was delivered at the Republican National Convention on September 2, 2008.
