“I believe freedom of speech and religious liberty at home will be restored. I believe that, abroad, America will once more be feared and respected, freezing the sweat and chilling the bones of men that aspire to tyranny, even fleetingly. I believe that political correctness will be relegated to the dustbin of history, rendered no more than an obscure footnote in a dusty book on the lowest-shelf of a third-rate library- just where it belongs.
I believe that American self-belief will once more prove itself to be the flame that refused to be snuffed out. And I believe that American exceptionalism will once more inject new life into the veins of civilization, undaunted by odds, unwearied by constant challenge, and unstained by the perpetual attack of its opponents.
I believe all of this because we have no alternative.” Nick Adams
