Here are some very motivating words from the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, that describe Rocky De La Fuente’s competitive spirit – a passion that compels him to dare greatly multiple times to seek elected office to change things for the better in America.
THE MAN IN THE ARENA
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
–Theodore Roosevelt, the Sorbonne, 1910
Focus on the original goals of health care reform; lower cost, improved quality, and open access. We need to address reform in a way that addresses ever-increasing costs alongside decreasing access. Substantive tort reform needs to have a seat at the table of discussion, as does pharmaceutical advertising since it disproportionately adds cost.
Comprehensive reform to current and previous policies under both Trump and Obama needs to be addressed. We can maintain secure borders without abandoning the values upon which this great nation was founded. We must first acknowledge that there is a problem since the current approach is Anti-American. Also, we have a labor shortage even though our people want jobs. Let’s match them up for overall economic prosperity.
The only jobs that the government creates are at the expense of the American people. The jobs created by the government are a burden to taxpayers. Lawmakers have made doing business and adding jobs more expensive than it can profit. As a result, small business is almost obsolete. One side of the aisle wants to ‘go after’ big corporations, and in doing so, have created a landscape where only the few can survive. We can see now how overregulation caused the large business to be the only means to stay alive. We must roll back the path that was laid for big corporations to outgrow independent and small businesses. Small to medium businesses are the heart and soul of the American economy. Bring back small to medium businesses, and we bring back jobs.
We must audit the Department of Education and discover the source of radical overspending. Once we find out the source of the excess, we can begin a discussion about solutions. It is clear that the current system is failing our youth, and in this global marketplace, we absolutely cannot afford to come in last.
Democrats and Republicans spend too much time arguing over environmental buzzwords. The planet is changing. What can we do as humans and as world leaders to help forge a path to sustainable living? We can let go of the bickering and work toward lending an ear to balancing longevity with ethical practices. We, as Americans, are stewards of this planet, and we bear the responsibility to preserve the environment to the greatest extent that we reasonably can.
I, Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente, am running for president, and together we can fight and champion the causes that affect us the most. Reasons such as climate change, education, gun control, immigration, and healthcare are things that affect us all. We need to keep our streets safe for our children and ourselves. We need to make education accessible to all. We need to have a smart immigration plan that addresses the reality and needs of the nation, an idea that unites families not divides them. It is a fact of life that some fortunate people will reach old age and will need affordable healthcare to carry us into our Wonder Years. I am ready to be your champion and fight for you in Washington. I need your support so we can do this TOGETHER.
