In the spirit of Black History Month, also referred to as African-American History Month, celebrated since 1976 in America, Canada and the United Kingdom, I would like to spotlight some contemporary Americans who have contributed everything they could and continue to put forth everything they can to keep America the free, principled nation under God that it was intended to be. Tonight, Alan Keyes, a Republican presidential candidate in 2000, and the man who accepted an invitation from the Illinois Republican Party to run against Barack Obama in 2004 for the U.S. Senate, is the man I would like to spotlight and quote.

“Our first responsibility is not to ourselves. Our first responsibility is to our country and to our God.”

“The income tax is a twentieth-century socialist experiment that has failed. Before the income tax was imposed on us just 80 years ago, government had no claim to our income. Only sales, excise, and tariff taxes were allowed.”

“We must take away the government's credit card. With limits on both tax revenue and borrowing, the Federal government would finally be forced to get serious about spending cuts.”

1,664.7 miles to go.
