Sounding very much like a potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker received several standing ovations during his CPAC 2015 speech on Thursday.
“Up there in Washington, we have a president who measures success by how many people are dependent on the government. There’s a reason we celebrate the Fourth of July and not April 15, because in America we celebrate our independence from the government and not our dependence on it.
"We need a president who recognizes that radical Islamic terrorism is a threat to our way of life and all freedom loving people around the world. We need to take the fight to them and not wait for them to bring the fight to our soil for our children and our grandchildren.
“We need to show the world that in America, you have no better ally and no worse enemy,” Walker said.
Walker also talked about his successes in Wisconsin.
“I’m proud to tell you that today our state is better. In our state, we don’t have seniority or tenure anymore. We can hire and fire based on merit. We can put the best and brightest in our classrooms and we can keep them there.
“Homeowners will pay less in taxes in 2016 than they did in 2010. How many other governors in America can say that?” Walker said.
