This life, this purpose, this American spirit that we hold dear - we are not alone. We do it together.
Politicians should aim for higher discourse, the media should report context instead of seeking to inflame the public, and the public should not reward bad behavior nor engage in it on social media.
The left is really good at selling bad ideas and the right is really bad at selling good ideas.
Red flag law is a general concept. There could be good ones and there can be bad ones. You should be against the bad ones, as I am.
There are a lot of veterans out there who would not think their wounds would be the source of poor jokes in bad taste to a hysterically laughing audience.
The role of government is to tax the people to the least extent possible while still taxing them enough to cover the basic needs for government.
I want you to say 'Never Forget' because when you say 'Never Forget' you're thanking that veteran in a different way. You're allowing them to be thankful for the idea for the fact that as an American you're in it with them. We're in it together and we don't forget together.
Houston's been getting flooded for a very long time. We always have to prepare for disasters and we have to do this in a very bipartisan way.
The need for physical border security is a very real one. But equally important is the need to focus on the source of the problem: mass emigration from Central America.
I will attack ideas very hard. I am not shy about that one bit. So I don't want people to think that because I had a call for civility that that means I shy away from debate and that I'm agreeable. That's not the case. What is the case is that I will not question who you are as a person.
If you get your teeth cleaned on Instagram live, it shows that you're just out of touch. That doesn't make you relatable or cool. It just makes you weird.
We actually all care about the environment, and most people believe in climate change and believe that mankind has something to do with that - how much is scientifically debatable, but there is some effect and we all have an interest in reducing carbon emissions, just having cleaner air, cleaner oceans. It's something we can get behind.
There are many ideas that we will never agree on. The left and the right have different ways of approaching governance, based on contrasting philosophies. But many of the ultimate goals - economic prosperity, better health care and education, etc. - are the same. We just don't share the same vision of how to achieve them.
If you're criticizing Israel, but you're doing it in a way that implies that the Jewish people in America have a dual loyalty, that's anti-Semitism. It's more than just criticizing Israeli policy.
Whether it's military resources or whatever it is doesn't matter. We need more detention facilities, more immigration judges, we need the ability to adjudicate these claims right on the spot without releasing people. If they don't have a credible claim of persecution and the vast majority do not, they get deported immediately.
You have to tackle the real drivers of debt - that's mandatory spending, not discretionary.
I have always disliked it when politicians start pandering to veterans and telling us how bad we have it and that if we just vote for them that they will fix all of our problems.
This is the way that I like to phrase it: we want to focus on 100% of the problem, and you can only focus on 100% of global emissions if you have technology that is exportable, clean, reliable, and cheap.
Even if we were able to agree on an ideal set of immigration laws, enforcing such laws in the face of hundreds of thousands of cases is impossible in practice.
There's bipartisan efforts to change how FEMA works or, more importantly, change how relief funding trickles down to us down here.
