This election takes place at the dawn of a new world. Terrorists attack around the world, striking not just at America, but at the idea of Liberty and at all people who would be free; the economies of all nations are increasingly intertwined; at home, we are polarized and unsure of ourselves and our neighbors. This election is a choice between the politics of American greatness, of Liberty, of growth and of hope; and the stale leftovers of a bygone era of international retreat, of government intrusion, of taxing and spending, and of division and malaise.
