The center of responsibility in a free country lies with each individual citizen.

Reagan's global battle was with the Soviet Union and communism.

It’s not so different from the battle today of those, like Scott, who wish to preserve America as a free country, and the left who carry the message of “wokeism.”

The core characteristic of “wokeism” is no different than the core characteristic of communism.

It puts its faith in government and politics and not in individual freedom and God.

The massive fiscal and economic problems we have today are the direct result of increasing faith and reliance in government and politics.

More debt, more spending, more government translate into less growth and less wealth.

Just as communism was a failed model that ultimately collapsed, so we are heading down the same path with big government wokeism in our own country.

This is why Scott’s place in national politics is so important.

Our political future increasingly depends on Americans of color.

When Reagan first ran for president in 1980, 88% of voters were white.

In the last presidential election in 2020, 67% of voters were white.

Disproportionately, non-white voters have placed more faith in government than in themselves. It is killing these communities and the country.

It is of critical importance that a successful Black man like Scott stand before the nation and argue against big government and for the eternal values that sustain individual freedom, a free society and that he showcases his own life as proof that these values work.

Recently the Census Bureau, for the first time, projected that the American population will shrink. As we approach midcentury, deaths will exceed births, as the population ages and we produce fewer children.

But it is those values that enable America as a free country and lead us into the future.
