Our American Revival

"Our American Revival" +

2:11 video from Jan. 27, 2015.


Male Announcer: America stands on the brink.  At a time and place in our history where failed leaders preside over a nation adrift, with family incomes in steady decline, dreams stifled, and a foreign policy that apologizes for America and projects weakness abroad. 

America can't stop this by looking to the past or for answers in Washington, DC.

To reclaim our destiny we must turn to bold, fresh, and new ideas from those incubators of reform: the states.

Walker (clip from speech): The folks in Washington like this top-down approach that's old and artificial and outdated, that says the government knows best.  We believe you should build the economy from the ground up.

Male Announcer: And that's exactly what states like Wisconsin are doing.  Leading America's revival with bold, conservative reform and new ideas, ideas that empower people and spark innovation, that turn around troubled economies, that eliminate huge deficits and turn them into surpluses, that reduce the size and scope of government, that cut taxes and create jobs.

Walker (clips from speech): Those groups in Washington, they tend to measure success by how many people are dependent on the government.  We measure success by how many people are no longer dependent on the government.  [applause/cheers SFX] 

We understand that true freedom and prosperity doesn't come from the mighty hand of the government, it comes from empowering people to live their own lives [applause/cheers SFX] and control their own destiny through the dignity that comes from work.

In America we take a day off to celebrate the 4th of July and not the 15th of April because in America we celebrate our independence from the government, not our dependence on it.  [applause/cheers SFX] [Music continues and fades out]

Notes:  The video is built around several clips from a Walker speech.  It includes a fair bit of patriotic imagery, including several scenes with the American flag (the opening scene where the camera moves over a flag; flags in the background of the  Walker speech clips; a slow motion clip of a boy waving a flag; and accompanying Walker's 4th of July quote is a clip of two women running out of a house to greet a returning soldier, as a flag waves on the front porch.

Obama and Clinton each make several appearances. 

As the announcer states "a foreign policy that apologies for America," a photo of Obama, Sec. of State Kerry and Susan Rice is shown. 

While the announcer states "projects weakness abroad," a photo of Obama bowing to the Japanes prime minister is shown. 

As the announcer states "America can't stop this by looking to the past," a photo of Hillary Clinton is shown. 

As Walker states, "Those groups in Washington, they tend to measure success by how many people are dependent on the government..." the screen shows a photo of Obama and Clinton.
