"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artificial and outdated, that says the government knows best.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
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.
