I think that all the gates of civility have been blown apart. We've now reached a point where everyone on both sides everyone is just saying or doing whatever they want, and you know, you can't just say or do whatever you want, this is not about political correctness. This is about rules of civility and the way a society talks to each other.
I don't want us to have a president that we constantly have to be explaining to our kids, 'Look, I know that's what the president did, but you shouldn't do that.' I don't want that, donald Trump -- he might have grown up the way he did, with a lot of money and going to boarding school. I can tell you this: Where I grew up, if someone keeps punching people in the face, eventually someone's going to have to stand up and punch them back.
I intend to be in this race as long as it takes to prevent someone like Donald Trump who is not a conservative and is a con man from taking over the conservative movement and the party of Reagan, i do not believe Donald Trump can get 1,237 delegates, which is what you need to become the nominee. And I will never give up the fight.
As a Roman Catholic, he's the head of the Church, he's the successor of Peter -- is what I believe -- and I have tremendous respect and admiration for him, i haven't seen his statement, but I'm an elected official in the United States of America in the federal government, and our number one obligation is to keep people safe and our immigration system is a part of that.
Tim is a leader not just in South Carolina but around the country. He embodies the American Dream. He embodies so much of what our party needs to be about, he doesn't come from a privileged background and neither do I and we are both conservatives because we know that conservatism is the right way forward -- especially for people who are trying to make it.
It's important and so good that the Republican Party has candidates running for president like John Kasich, who's father was a mailman, and my father, who was a bartender, and others who worked for a living and struggled to provide for their families, it's one thing to read about these things; it's another thing to live them.
He would have survived. He would have remained in power. And it would have strengthened his hand and allowed him to send a message to the world that he had taken on the United States and still held on. In fact, it may have even rallied some in the Arab world to his side as a result of such a strike, no one's calling on air strikes on Assad now.
As far as national security, let me just say, I obviously am not happy about the events that happened last week in Paris, but I think it's a positive development that it suddenly has forced Americans to confront more carefully the issue of national security, because it is the most important thing a president will do and it's the most important function of the federal government.
This is a civilizational struggle between the values of freedom and liberty, and radical Islamic terror. What happened in Paris could happen here, there is no middle ground. These aren't disgruntled or disempowered people. These are radical terrorists who want to kill us, because we let women drive, because we let girls go to school.
The overwhelming and vast majority of law enforcement officers in this country are just trying to do their jobs, it is troubling that there are groups and rhetoric out there now that is encouraging people to demonize law enforcement, to target law enforcement or in some cases, quite frankly, to misrepresent what law enforcement is trying to do.
If you watched that debate last night, it looked like something from the early '80s. It was basically a liberal versus liberal debate about who was going to give away the most free stuff: Free college education. Free college education for people illegally in this country. Free health care. Free everything.
If there is a vote where my vote is going to make a difference or an issue of major national significance and importance, we'd do everything possible to be there, but I am going to miss votes, I'm running for president. ... When I miss a vote, it's not because I'm out playing golf. We're out campaigning for the future of America where I believe I can make more of a difference as president than I could as a senator.
When I'm President of the United States, we will reimpose those sanctions on day one, and then I will go to Congress and ask them to even increase those sanctions more, and I will back that up with a credible threat of military force, a simple message to the Ayatollah: If you try to build a weapon, we will destroy your program.
A rape is an act of violence. It's a horrifying thing that happens. And fortunately, the number of abortions in this country that are due to rape are very small, less than 1% of the cases in the world. But they happen. And they're horrifying. And they're tragic. And I recognize that, i also recognize that because of the existence of over-the-counter morning after, not to mention medical treatment that's now available immediately after the assault, that should be widely available to victims, we can bring that number down to zero.
I don't say it's easy. Listen, you're 15 years old and you become pregnant and you're scared and you have your whole life ahead of you and you're facing this, that is a hard situation. I tell people all the time, 'Don't pretend this is easy.' This is a difficult question, but when asked to make a decision between two very hard circumstances.
This is a deal whose survival is not guaranteed beyond the term of the current president, and, by the way, I personally hope that the next person is someone that will remove the national security waiver and re-impose the congressional sanctions that were passed by Congress because this deal is fundamentally and irreparably flawed.
I disagree with the Court's ruling and believe they have once again erred in trying to correct the mistakes made by President President Barack Obama and Congress in forcing Obamacare on the American people, i remain committed to repealing this bad law and replacing it with my consumer-centered plan that puts patients and families back in control of their health care decisions.
It's tax day and while many Americans are filing their taxes with a groan, taxpayers in the Badger State have reason to cheer. In Wisconsin, we have enacted more than $2 billion in tax cuts, giving our citizens much-needed relief, call us crazy Midwesterners but we think you know how to spend your money better than the government.
This President is making a historic mistake, allies have differences, but allies like Israel, when you have a difference with them and it is public, it emboldens their enemies to launch more rockets out of southern Lebanon and Gaza, to launch more terrorist attacks, to go to international forums and de-legitimize Israel's right to exist. And this is what they're doing.
