"I remember watching the Nixon and Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend who spoke German and English translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism, which is what I had just left. But then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting government off your back, lowering taxes and strengthening the military. Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air.

"I said to my friend, 'Which party is he?' My friend said, 'He's a Republican.' I said, 'Then I am a Republican! And I've been a Republican ever since!"

— Arnold Schwarzenegger at the Republican Convention


Full text, if you didn't get enough last night. It was good to hear what's right with our country.
