Dear Santa, this year please give me a big fat bank account and a slim body. Please don't mix those two up like you did last year. Thanks!

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uhmmm, some people out there in our nation don't have maps and uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uhhh, our education over here in the US should help the US, uh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us.

Thank you, Iowa. Thank you so much. The sign that says, "Thank you, Sarah," no, I thank you. You are what keeps me going, keeps so many of us going. Your love of country keeps us going. Thank you so much. Iowa, you are good people. You are all good people who are here. Thank you.

So, what brought us here today out in this field? Why aren't we catching a Cyclones game, or watching the Hawkeyes perhaps, or grilling up some venison and corn-on-the-cob, maybe some caribou with some friends on this Labor Day weekend? What brought us together is a love of country.

Yes, we need sudden and relentless reform, and that will return power to "We the People." This, of course, requires deeds, not just words. It's not good enough for politicians to just be throwing our way some vague generalities, talking about some promises here and there. It's time that we hold them accountable.

So, let us today in this field have that adult conversation about what needs to be done to restore America. Let's do that now.

Don't wait for the permanent political class to reform anything for you. They won't. They can't. They can't even take responsibility for their own actions. Our credit is downgraded, but it's not their fault. Our economy's in turmoil, but it's not his fault. It's the tsunami in Japan or the Middle East uprising. It's Irene. It's those doggone ATM machines.

America, we will always endure. We will always come through. We will never give up. We shall endure because we live by that moral strength that we call grace. Because though we've often skirted a precipice, a Providential Hand has always guided us to a better future. So, let us seek that Hand once more. Our Ronald Reagan said, "If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under." Yes, He shed his grace on thee, America! We will not squander what we have been given! We will fight for freedom. We will fight for America. We are at the tipping point. United we must stand. And we shall nobly save, not meanly lose, this last best hope on earth.

So, God bless you, Iowa! God bless the United States of America!
