Remarks by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to the Republican National Committee in Charlotte, N.C., January 24, 2013.
Thank you all for having me here tonight. And thank you Reince for the outstanding leadership you provide to the Republican Party. And I want to thank our great RNC members from Louisiana, Chairman Roger Villere, National Committeewoman Lenar Whitney, and National Committeeman Ross Little for all of their hard work.
Let me warn you in advance that I plan to talk big picture here tonight, and I plan to say some things that may challenge your assumptions.
You may not agree with all of it, but that’s ok, ours is a party that can handle real discussions.
And now, after losing two Presidential elections in a row, is certainly the time for some candid discussion.
I. America is not the federal government.
The first concept I want to talk about is simply this – America is not the federal government.
Take a minute to let that thought sink in. America is not the federal government.
