Vice President Mike Pence was in Wisconsin this week where he gave a powerful speech.
Pence noted that the left has gone so far to the extreme that the election is not even about liberal vs. conservative, but rather about whether or not America remains America.
He is right.
Here’s a transcript via the White House:
You know, it’s not so much whether America will be more conservative or more liberal, more Republican or Democrat, more red or blue. It’s whether America remains America.
It’s whether we will leave to our children and our grandchildren a country grounded in our highest ideals of freedom, free markets, and the unalienable right to life and liberty — or whether we will leave to our children and grandchildren a country that is fundamentally transformed into something else.
Like those first Republicans, we stand at a crossroads of freedom. Before us are two paths: one based on the dignity of every individual, and the other on the growing control of the state. Our road leads to greater freedom and opportunity. Their road leads to socialism and decline.
President Trump set our nation on a path to freedom and opportunity from the very first day of this administration. (Applause.) But Joe Biden would set America on a path of socialism and decline.
America is a blessed and exceptional country, unique among the nations. We’ve been an asylum of hope for millions around the world “yearning to breathe free,” as the words on the Statue of Liberty declare.
Many of our greatest citizens have come from the corners of the world ruled by socialist regimes. If you ever doubt whether this country is special and unique, just talk to one of them.

Every four years, pundits frame the presidential election as the most consequential in years.
This time, it’s really true.
