Stump Speech
It is time for an American renaissance, time to return to a golden age of economic and social strength that comes from entrepreneurship and belief in the American dream. I believe in Americans and I believe that all our people should have the means to create a life for themselves through hard work and determination.
The Wall Street insiders and corporate magnates have ruled our country for too long, using their extensive lobbying to corrupt and control our legislation and bureaucracy. In this economic climate it is impossible for small businesses to meet success because of the power that large corporations to undercut and out-produce by using friendly government regulations to lower their costs of production dramatically. I say no more. No more shall CEOs exploit their workers by offering them little pay and no benefits, no more shall government be a slave to the interests of big business, and no more shall the entrepreneurial spirit be crushed by an unforgiving marketplace.
Hi, my name is __________. I plan to reduce the power of conglomerates by closing tax loopholes they notoriously exploit, raising corporate tax and necessitating health care coverage for all workers of a large business. I am also planning to make obtaining a small-buisness loan easier, reduce taxes on small businesses thus allowing a economic foothold in the marketplace for entrepreneurs.

I also plan to make this country self-sufficient on energy. No longer shall we rely on dictatorial regimes in unstable regions thousands of miles across the world for our energy. We shall use America’s natural resources rather than the Middle East’s, we shall use our own oil and our own natural gas and we will progress into the future by searching for alternative energy to sustain our nation. We will drive energy costs down for we shall no longer be at the mercy of OPEC and its economic policies, and the government shall ensure through subsidies that energy is affordable for all Americans.
Healthcare is paramount for our nation to to be effective and prosperous. I agree with standing policies on healthcare regarding the necessity that all people be covered but I plan on removing government from the marketplace in favor of more marketplace competition in the private sectors. I will ensure that companies take in individuals with pre-existing conditions and will use the power of capitalist competition to drive prices down. By allowing the marketplace to work out its own issues the companies will provide better coverage at a lower cost, and will keep our nation healthy and strong.

Wrap Up
Carla Baxter aims to put America in the hands of its own people: no more will energy be from foreign countries, but rather made from our very own resources. American small businesses will be the backbone of our economy, rather than large corporate franchises. And health care will finally be accessible to the people, and they will have their own choice in the matter.
Vote for American Ownership. Vote for Carla Baxter.
