Rick Scott wants Donald Trump and a 'revolution'



Gov. Rick Scott wants Donald Trump to lead a "revolution." Writing for Newsmax:

We need to start a peaceful revolution in our country by electing a president who knows why our country was created, who believes that American freedom and beliefs are exceptional, and who understands WHY capitalism has done more to eliminate poverty than any government program. I have already announced my support for Donald Trump in this presidential election, but the monumental change needed in our country today is bigger than one political party or one election.

With a majority of Americans unhappy about our current course, America's next president will have to begin a revolution of multi-generational change. Our next president must be willing to take on the many promises big government has made to us over the years that we know they cant afford to keep. Who actually believes Social Security will be there for them when they retire? Who has been helped by losing the doctors and insurance plans they liked because they were forced to take government-run insurance? Who is confident that ISIS is losing its battle against freedom?

The revolution our country needs will require unity – not squabbling about how to engineer secret backroom deals with delegates during a national convention. If we genuinely value the freedoms our country was founded on – freedom from government control and government regulation – freedom to work hard and succeed, then its time to join together and drastically change the path our country is on.
