News Release

February 17, 2017

PHOENIX — “This unique and exceptional nation was founded upon the principle we the people tell the government what to do; it doesn’t tell us what to do. The idea that every citizen has the freedom to chart their own course and leave their children better off than they were born.

“Today we celebrate the wisdom, courage, and leadership of the U.S. presidents, from George Washington onward, who kept that flame of individual liberty alive and expanded freedom and opportunity over the centuries to all people, no matter their background.

“Let’s recommit ourselves to following in these presidents’ footsteps toward a better and brighter future.”
