It's not the government that makes the United States a great country. It's the people.

In our American households, when we find out we are overspending, we spend less. When our government overspends, its solution is to spend its way out of debt.

Here's a message to the bureaucrats who are fond of telling us to sit down and shut up: We will not let you take our country from us.
