Romney Camp Releases Preview of Tonight's Speech

Romney will address education, the economy and the national debt.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s much-anticipated acceptance speech for the Republican nomination for president is expected to begin at 10 p.m. tonight.

But, for those who just can't wait, Romney's campaign released a preview of his speech, which will encompass everything from job growth to education.

Among the issues Romney will address is America's dependence on foreign energy sources. Romney vows that, if elected, North America will be energy independent by 2020 by taking full advantage of "full advantage of our oil and coal and gas and nuclear and renewables."

Romney also will discuss ways to improve the education of American children by giving parents more schools choice.

"When it comes to the school your child will attend, every parent should have a choice, and every child should have a chance," said Romney's speech.

Intent on putting "America on track to a balanced budget," Romney will discuss new trade agreements.

Turning to the economy, Romney said America needs to champion small businesses, which he calls "America’s engine of job growth.

"That means reducing taxes on business, not raising them," he said. "It means simplifying and modernizing the regulations that hurt small business the most. And it means that we must rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare."

Romney also will talk a bit about himself and his beliefs, including his membership in the Mormon church.

"When we were new to the community, it was welcoming and, as the years went by, it was a joy to help others who had just moved to town or just joined our church. We had remarkably vibrant and diverse congregations of all walks of life and many who were new to America," Romney says. "We prayed together, our kids played together and we always stood ready to help each other out in different ways."

The dynamic duo of Romney and Ryan would drive the entire economy into a nose dive as long as it benefits the richest Americans. Income inequality is endangering the Middle Class and making paupers of us all who don’t have those millions upon millions of dollars.
