Rubio: Building a National American Conservatism
Building a National American Conservatism
By U.S. Senator Marco Rubio
April 23, 2018
The American cause faces existential challenges. It requires a conservative movement dedicated to one-nation principles to overcome them.
It seems like just yesterday that I undertook my first campaign for public office. I knocked on virtually every door in the small city of West Miami in my bid to be elected to its city commission. It was during that campaign, on the front porches and in the living rooms of the families I would ultimately represent, that I came to fully understand where I came from.
Almost two decades after that first campaign in one of the smallest cities in Florida, I had the opportunity to run for president of the United States. Just as I did back in my first campaign, I learned much about our people. I hope that by sharing these observations I can contribute to the cause of bringing all Americans together to confront some of the major challenges we face.
In that campaign, by day, I had town halls in cities throughout New Hampshire hollowed out by the new economy, and events in Iowa with Americans who esteemed the traditional values of hard work, family, faith, and community, but who felt that the people in charge of our country did not.
By night, I traveled to California, Chicago, Palm Beach, and New York to raise money at the homes of people who lived very different lives. They had benefited greatly from the new economy. But many of them did not respect the traditional values of the people I met in New Hampshire or Iowa.
Both the people whose votes I sought and whose funds I needed are good Americans. But only one of those two groups thought that it was represented by our government. And it was not the unemployed factory workers in New Hampshire or the truck drivers in Iowa.
