On Friday, former Vice President Mike Pence told a crown in Iowa that President Joe Biden is seeking to making the United States a secular welfare state.
"I’m a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican in that order," Pence declared at the 10th annual Family Leadership Summit. "To turn this country around, we need to turn the American people back to God, back to one nation under God.”
"We need to defend believers all across the county," he continued. "We need to reject every effort to marginalize Christians and conservatives…We must never allow our schools or government agencies or corporations to persecute the American people because of their deeply held religious beliefs."
Fox News reports:
Longtime Family Leader CEO and president Bob Vander Plaats told Fox News earlier in the week: "Our base knows him (Pence) very well. They were huge supporters of him when President Trump chose him to be vice president. I think it’s one of the things that made our base comfortable with a President Trump."
While the Democrats won control of the White House and the Senate – and retained their majority in the House – in last year's elections, Pence said he was optimistic. He pointed to the unexpected success the GOP had in the 2020 contests in taking a big bite out of the Democrats’ House majority. And he also pointed to the Republican wave of 2010, when the Republicans won back the House, and 2014 and 2016, when the GOP recaptured the Senate and then the White House.
"We’re going to do it all again in the next three and a half years," he predicted. And he emphasized that "an unapologetic stand for the sanctity of life" is a key part of having "a winning agenda."
"I came here today to say that after 177 days of open borders, higher taxes, runaway spending, defunding the police, abortion on demand, censoring free speech, canceling our most cherished liberties, I’ve had enough," Pence said. "The time has come for every American dedicated to faith and freedom to stand up and fight back against the agenda of the radical left.”
He added that Biden is "intent on transforming America into a European style secular welfare state" and has "wholehearted embrace of the radical left’s all-encompassing assault on American culture."
