Transcript (thank God for voice to text on my phone!):
America is the most exceptional nation in the history of the world because the US Constitution is the best political document that’s ever been written, because it says something different than almost any people and any government has believed in human history.
Most governments in the past said might makes right and the King has all the power and the people are dependent subjects, and the American Founders said: "No! God gives us rights by nature and government is just our shared project to secure those rights."
Government is not the author or source of our rights and you don’t make America Great Again by giving more power to one guy in Washington DC.
You make America Great Again by recovering a constitutional republic where Washington is populated by people who are servant leaders who want to return power to the people and to the communities, because what’s great in America is the Rotary Club. It's small businesses and churches and schools and fire departments and it’s little leagues across this country.
What makes America is not some guy in Washington who says: "If I had more power I could fix it all unilaterally."
That's not the American Tradition.
