EXCERPTS: SENATOR GRAHAM TO ANNOUNCE CANDIDACY FOR PRESIDENT

Alexandria, VA – Today, Graham 2016 released the following excerpts, as prepared for delivery, ahead of Senator Graham’s Presidential Announcement Event in Central, SC.

“I Want To Be President To Defeat The Enemies Trying To Kill Us, Not Just Penalize Them Or Criticize Them Or Contain Them, But Defeat Them.”
“I want to be president to defeat the enemies trying to kill us, not just penalize them or criticize them or contain them, but defeat them. Ronald Reagan’s policy of ‘peace through strength’ kept America safe during the Cold War. But we will never enjoy peaceful co-existence with Radical Islam because its followers are committed to destroying us and our way of life. However, America can have ‘Security through Strength.’”

Meeting Our Nation’s Problems Head On “Honestly and Realistically”
“I want to be president to meet our problems head on. Honestly and realistically, for the purpose of solving them, not hiding them or taking political advantage of them.”

Radical Islam Is Running Wild. “I Will Make Them Small, Poor, And On The Run.”
“Simply put, radical Islam is running wild. They have more safe havens, more money, more weapons and more capability to strike our homeland than anytime since 9/11. They are large, rich and entrenched. As President I will make them small, poor and on the run.”

Fighting Terrorism “Require[s] More Than Military Might”

“But to defeat this enemy, it will require more than military might. The most powerful weapon in our arsenal isn’t a gun. It’s an idea. The terrorists are selling a glorious death. We must sell a hopeful life. I’ve learned from my travels that a small school house in a remote region educating a young girl can do more damage to radical Islam than any weapon we possess.”

“We’ve Learned Over The Past Six Years That Speeches Alone Won’t Make Us Safer.”
“We’ve learned over the past six years that speeches alone won’t make us safer. Superior power and resolve will. I’m running for President because I am ready to be Commander-in-Chief on day one.”

“Those Who Believe We Can Disengage From The World At Large And Stay Safe By Leading From Behind, Vote For Someone Else.”
“Those who believe we can disengage from the world at large and stay safe by leading from behind, vote for someone else. I’m not your man. Those who believe the best way to defend ourselves is to lead the world, to make history rather than be overwhelmed by it, I ask for your support.”

“Join Me If You Want To Tackle Problems At Home That Have Been Kicked Down The Road Because They’re Too Hard To Fix And Too Easy To Demagogue.”
“Join me if you want to tackle problems at home that have been kicked down the road because they’re too hard to fix and too easy to demagogue. Washington’s failure to do the hard but right thing has put Social Security and Medicare in serious jeopardy. As my generation retires both programs are on track to go bust. We’re living longer and fewer workers are supporting more retirees. That’s unsustainable. Everybody knows it. Not everybody admits it.”

“I Intend to Be President Not Of A Single Party, But Of A Nation”
“I intend to be president not of a single party, but of a nation. I want to do more than make big government smaller. I want to help make a great nation greater.”

“There Are A Lot Of So-Called ‘Self-Made’ People In This World. I’m Not One Of Them. My Family, Friends, Neighbors, and My Faith Picked Me Up When I Was Down…”

“I’ve traveled the world, and had experiences and opportunities that I never dreamed of. I’ve been lucky so much of my life, but never luckier than in the people and place I come from. Those of you who’ve known me a long time know I had some ups and downs as a young man. I lost my parents, and had to struggle financially and emotionally. I would not have made it through those times without you, and without the example my parents set for me. There are a lot of so-called ‘self-made’ people in this world. I’m not one of them. My family, friends, neighbors and my faith picked me up when I was down, believed in me when I had doubts. You made me the man I am today.”
