    Christopher A. Reed (R-FL) Round 1 - Submission 1 Stump Speech [6 AP - 2 per location] Cities: 1 - Naples, Collier County, Florida; 2 - St. Petersburg, Pinellas, Florida 3 - Lakeland, Polk County, FLorida. “Hello! I’m Christopher Reed and I’m running to be Florida’s next United States Senator. We’ve enjoyed eight years of peace and prosperity and I’m here to tell you that we need to continue the good times. And the progress of the last eight years cannot be stopped. You know, back in the seventies, Americans were struggling to find stability and prosperity. We had a sky high misery index. We had unemployment and inflation through the roof. We had high taxes and we had difficult times like that. And today, we are much better off because of President Reagan and his Administration. We have cut taxes, we have stopped inflation in its tracks, and we have led an economic boom for eight years that has seen unprecedented economic growth. We have had over 3% growth on average for the last seven years. We have seen unemployment fall from 7.5% to around 5.70% and we have seen inflation go down to 3% from the highs it was. We need to have changes to make the 1990s even stronger. We need to impose budget discipline on non-defense items and we need to make sure our defense spending is streamlined to ensure the Pentagon is getting what it’s needed without being wasteful. As your United States Senator, that is exactly what I will do. And we will do it without raising one single new tax. I will pledge here right now to never raise your taxes. And while we’re on the subject of the economy - Florida’s orange industry is the pride of the United States, and is one of the leading orange producers in the United States. That’s why as her next United States Senator, I will do everything to protect our industry and will seek to ensure that Florida’s farmers have the price supports and help they need to continue our thriving orange industry. Not only that, I’ll fight for Florida overseas by pushing for access to overseas markets so Florida’s orange growers can reap the benefits of open markets to sell our fantastic oranges. Speaking of free and open markets … let me tell the great state of Florida - I will stand against the Castro regime, full square and stand behind any Cuban seeking freedom. We have to stand up for dissidents fleeing a socialist regime that imprisons and jails dissidents and does it all in the name of a vicious, hideous ideology. As long as I’m in the United States Senate, we will never normalize relations with a despotic regime and we will stand for those who flee the island and seek shelter on American shores. We will help every refugee who sets foot on Florida, and seeks asylum. No questions asked. And we will never let go of the embargo. So let me shift to a talk on crime. I am a tough on crime “broken glass” kind of guy. I believe in cracking down on crime and I believe in putting away criminals for the crimes they commit before they can commit even worse crimes. Let me give you an example. Someone jaywalks or robs a store and steals something, they often will become repeat offenders and go onto commit tougher crimes. That’s why we need to crack down on them and stand up for victims, not criminals. I know the Democratic Party wants to coddle criminals but I am here to tell you we will be tough on crime. And that includes enforcing the death penalty, full bore. Lastly, I want to talk about NASA exploration. With the tragedy of the Challenger incident last year I want to tell you that I am committed to NASA spending. Exploring the stars is a very human initiative and is rooted in our deepest impulses to know about the universe. That’s why as your next - hopefully - United States Senator - I am committing to $8 billion in NASA spending to help launch a new mission to the stars and to continue the great work of NASA. Not only will I stand for space exploration, I’ll stand for defending America’s borders. Even as we reach for the stars, I’ll fight for America’s borders by pushing over $300 billion in Defense spending to protect the United States’ military readiness and nuclear arsenal. The United States stands tall today in the world today because of our defense spending and as your next Senator, I will stand with a President Anderson Kaine to fight for defense interests. So I’m here to ask for your vote, to be your next Republican United States Senator, and thank you very much and God bless you all!” Thank you Talking Points [5 AP - 1 per location] -- Dade County and South Florida: I will stand firmly against the Castro regime and stand up for Cuba’s freedom and for the embargo that sends a strong signal to Castro’s autocratic regime. We will support and help any asylum refugee seeker from Cuba. --Florida Panhandle: I will be a tough on crime United States Senator, seeking to support mandatory minimum laws and to crack down on crime. I support using the death penalty to execute criminals. -- I-4 Corridor and Pinellas County: I will never raise your taxes and I will fight to cut capital gains and individual tax rates to make sure you keep more of your own money. -- Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center: I stand for a $8 billion NASA budget to help space exploration and a new mission to replace the ill fated Challenger mission. We must honor those who lost their lives and continue their dreams of space exploration. -- Polk, Glades, Hendry, DeSoto and Collier Counties (Center-South Florida): I stand for the orange and citrus industry and will do everything to help our farmers in this region help maintain our global standing as producers of oranges and citrus fruits. Florida is among the globe’s leaders and I intend to continue that , including opening up new markets for our oranges and citrus fruits. I will support farm bills that help this vital industry.

    Location: Miami-Dade, Florida (59-40% Reagan in 1984) Topic: Castro and Cuba Type: Fundraiser (specifically, a beach one, at the water’s edge) “Ladies and gentlemen. It’s a pleasure to be here. This is the heart of the resistance against a socialist regime that lies 90 miles off our coast. I’m standing here at the edge of the beach. Over there lies a despotic socialistic regime that hates the United States and hates freedom. It is led by a socialist named Fidel Castro, who hates everything we stand for. This is a man who jails dissidents. This is a man who has starving Cubans. His people flee the island every chance they get. They seek their freedom and their prosperity here. They think the cities are paved with gold and in comparison with socialistic Cuba, it is. Many of them settle here in Miami, and the Cuban population here is significant. They are freedom lovers, they are mi amigos, my friends. And I welcome them with open arms. I welcome those who flee the stifling crushing grip of socialism and property confiscation and a secret police that jails dissidents. My friends, I will stand for the Cuban embargo as long as Fidel Castro rules Cuba with an iron fist. He is no friend to liberty. He is no friend to freedom. He is no friend to any sort of proper revolution for the people. He is a friend to autocratic, repressive, and statist regimes from Moscow to Budapest. And listen well, my friends. In Havana, they used to sing and dance the songs of freedom, but now the air is silent and heavy with the mute rancid stench of oppression wafting from the Presidential palace. This island 90 miles off our coast is headed by a friend of Russia, and their satellites in Eastern Europe, and every tyrannical oppressive regime. It is an island led by hateful men, even though it is a beautiful island of paradise. I will tell you something, friends. I will tell you that I will welcome every dissident and make every effort as a United States Senator to make sure that every dissident who sets wet foot on this soil is given free asylum and given an ability to start a fresh life. As long as Castro knows we welcome his enemies and critics, he will live a fearful man, afraid of every shadow in the corner. As long as we welcome the enemies of the revolution, he will walk a haunted and hunted man. This man, who is the embodiment of evil is a man who will go to extreme ends to maintain his power. Friends, the great Ronald Reagan has stood against Fidel Castro and his oppressive regime. The great Ronald Reagan has continued a long bipartisan policy of standing against Fidel Castro. My friends, I will stand with you. I will fight for you. I will be with you until Cuba truly sings the song of freedom. Thank you and may God richly bless you all!” [Mr. Reed dips a foot into the water in symbolic protest of the Castro regime]

    Topic: Tax Rates Location: Naples, Collier County, Florida. Type: Fundraiser “Ladies and gentlemen, it is a pleasure to be here with you all. I know that you are all good Republicans of the Reagan Revolution and that you have been with us as we fought the good fight to keep tax rates low. All of you enjoy, today, the prosperity we see today and harvest the fruits of the good fight that President Reagan and Congressional Republicans waged. President Ronald Reagan is the star of our show tonight, even though he isn’t here. The 40th President has been an exemplar, an apostle of tax cuts and supply side growth that has led one of the greatest economic booms of the 20th century. Thanks to the 40th President, we have enjoyed years of prosperity and peace. Thanks to him, we have more money that’s worth more in our pockets. Thanks to him, we have a sensible tax policy in Washington, instead of an out of control tax and spend inflationary set of left wing policies. Let me tell you something. The top tax rate in 1980 was 70%. Today, it’s 28%. The capital gains tax rate was slashed. The corporate tax rate – while still high – has been streamlined. Tax brackets are no longer inflationary – meaning that each bracket is now adjusted for inflation. This is the benefit of the Reagan Revolution, in which we enjoy real tax relief that means more money in our pocket to spend on the economy. That’s a real result that we all can be proud of. And that’s a result of the Reagan Revolution. That’s because all of you stood up and said “enough is enough” to the left wing Democrats who wanted to use your paycheck as an ATM for their wasteful programs. Look, if I’m your next United States Senator, I’ll cut the corporate tax rate to 25% from 34%. Our corporate tax rate remains too high and we need to make it so that businesses can continue to thrive. Ronald Reagan got it and so do you all. And if I’m your next United States Senator, we’ll cut the capital gains tax on long term capital gains to 25%. We’ve seen the capital gains tax cuts produce true economic prosperity and we will see them continue to do exactly that. I’m asking for your donations against my left wing opponent. I’m standing up for conservative values that means you keep your own money in your own pocket. And I know this state – that went for President Reagan twice – will be a state that will stand with pro-tax cut policies, pro-growth policies. This is the state that gave President Reagan 55%, and then 65% of the vote. You have gone Republican exactly twice since 1952 and I hope that this year, in 1988, you’ll continue supporting the Republican Party in its bid to help you keep more of your own money. Thank you very much for listening and God bless you and God bless the United States of America!”

    MAILER #2 Type: Letter Target: Evangelicals Topic: Social issues ________________________ The Republican National Committee 310 First Street SE, Washington, D.C. 20003 September 1, 1988 Dear Valued Member, Eight years ago, President Ronald Reagan said that it was morning in America. And now, thanks to his hard work and your support, millions of babies that would have been aborted are waking up every day, alive and well. President Reagan has thoroughly fulfilled his campaign promise to fight to save unborn ch ildren. He has banned charities receiving federal funds from pro viding abortions or promotion abortions. He has led the national March for Live almost every year while in office, and made abortion a focus of his state of the union addresses. Perhaps most notably, he has appointed William H. Rehnquist as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court; Rehnquist famously opposed the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade. The president has fought hard with the support of the entire Republican Party to deter and prohibit the horrid practice of abort ion. We have succeeded in stemming the tide of abortions thanks to President Reagan's leadership. In 1973, there were 615,000 abortions. Under liberal leadership, that number doubled by the time President Reagan took office. But since then, we've reduced the number of abortions in this country. We've done so even as the number of people getting pregnant has increased, and even as the US population has increased by twenty million. Imagine how many abortions there'd be if President Carter had been re-elected. Imagine how many abortions there'd be if Walter Mondale had been president. And imagine how many abortions there'd be if the American people elected John White, a proponent of abortion. Luckily, there is an alternative to radical liberals like John White: the Republican Party. Under the leadership of Ronald Reagan, we have fought for morality in this country. And under the leadership of Anderson Kaine, we will continue to do so. We will put justices on the court that will reverse Roe v. Wade. We will endorse congressmen that will support a constitutional amendment banning abortion. And we wi ll do everything in our power at every level of government to protect the lives of unborn children. Please, join us once again in the fight for American values and American lives. Help us to do more to preserve our nation's way of life. Please give what you can and thank you very much. God bless you. Sincerely, Ralph Staples Barrett Republican National Committee Chairman FORM TO DONATE HERE YES, I'll donate to help elect a Republican President and Congress! Enclosed is my contribution! _ $25 _ $50 _ $75 _ Your preference here $____

    MAILER #1 Type: Letter Target: Small business ________________________ The Republican National Committee 310 First St SE Washington, DC 20003 August 25, 1988 RE: We need your support! Dear Valued Member, You have been with us since the beginning! When President Ronald Reagan ran for President as an underdog, you were there for him. For many of you, you cited oppressive regulations, high taxes, and inflation as reasons you couldn't continue as small business owners. The seventies were a tough time for many of us and it's only under President Ronald Reagan that we finally got real relief in the White House. We have slashed regulations, streamlined tax rates, and strengthened America's trade policies at home and abroad. The twin tax reforms of 1981 and 1986 coupled with this, Administration's work in fostering an open and competitive environment for our businesses have led to an unprecedented economic boom that has seen inflation and unemployment at record lows not seen since the sixties. The liberal Democrats don't see it this way. They want to go back to high taxes, high unemployment, and low wage growth. They want to sacrifice economic growth for all to satisfy a narrow subset of liberals who can't see the tax and spend regulatory regime of the seventies as a failure. And you and I know that they certainly don't know how to run a small business. For many of you, even the smallest adjustments in our tax rate or inflation can mean the difference between a profit and a loss for you. When President Reagan cut the individual tax rates and business tax rate, he gave many of you a lifeline to continue doing what you love while growing our economy. Over 50% of our job creation comes from small businesses like you. When President Reagan did the tough work of supporting the Federal Reserve in '82 to combat inflation, it was to help you manage your profits and losses. When President Reagan pushed tax reform in 1986 and trade agreements around the world it was with you in mind. Now, we need your help again. Anderson Kaine and the Republican ticket are fighting for you in November to continue thriving. We're fighting to make sure that the econox expansion continues and that America's unemployment rate and inflation rate continues at record lows. Do you remember President Carter and his "malaise" speech, giving into the forces of defeatism? Do you remember decades of liberal rule and regulation that favored liberals over job creators? Do you remember the frustration you had as far off Washington taxed you and sent the money to agencies that had no business even regulating you? If John White is elected President and if Democrats maintain a congressional majority, these days could come roaring back. We've had eight long years of a Republican President and six years of a Republican Senate and conservative House majority supporting an American revitalization. Let's not stop what's been working. To that end, please donate whatever you can. Please contribute to help elect a Republican White House and Congress to pass our agenda. Thank you and God bless you! Sincerely, [Signature in blue ink] Ralph Staples Barrett Republican National Committee Chairman =================+ FORM TO DONATE HERE YES, I'll donate to help elect a Republican President and Congress!

    Announcement Speech of Christopher Reed “Good afternoon all. I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the United States Senate in Florida, to succeed Senator Lawton Chiles. The Republican Party of Florida has been growing in recent years, thanks to the leadership of President Ronald Reagan and I am pleased to say that the conservative movement has done very well in the Sunshine State. I am campaigning to continue conservative leadership for the State of Florida. The Sunshine State needs responsible fiscal and moral leadership that will guide it into the 1990s. I will vote for pro-life constructionist judges that will interpret the rule of law as it was intended, not as what activist judges believe it to be. I will vote for tax cuts that protect our hard earned money and protect Florida’s economy. And I will campaign for tough on crime measures in the Senate to protect our communities from the rising homicide rate and crime rates. We must also have welfare reform and we must stand up for slowly cutting spending so that our budget can be balanced again. Deficits are bad for the economy and we must not leave an increasing interest rate debt that must be paid for by our children and grandchildren. In the Cold War, we must stand against the Soviet Union and their evil ways. I will stand with the next President to stop the Communist menace and to force Premier Gorbachev to reform or face consequences. The United States must actively fight on an ideological scale the Communist menace. Thank you and God bless!”

    Ralph Staples Barrett Takes Helm of RNC; Vows to Elect GOP White House and Congress Washington D.C. - Ralph Staples Barrett (R-Ariz.) was elected Chair of the Republican National Committee and issued an appropriate statement to the occasion. “The Republican National Committee is pleased to join the contest for the 1988 elections, and believes the American people will reward the party of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. We are a party that believes in freedom and enterprise that works for the American people. At the moment, we are contesting a vigorous campaign for the Republican Presidential nomination and each of the candidates would make a fine nominee and successor to President Reagan. We have had eight years of prosperity, peace, and stability under President Reagan. We look forward to continuing that success with a new Republican President who will continue the important work of President Ronald Reagan. We hope to extend that success downballot to elect Republicans in the House and the Senate, and to elect a conservative Republican majority. As a last note, Mr. Donald Trump - who served on President Reagan’s Finance Committee and recently registered as a Republican, has generously joined our Finance Committee and has made the use of Trump Tower available to the Republican National Committee for fundraising purposes, if we choose to use it. Mr. Trump is a successful New York businessman who has become a fixture on the New York real estate landscape and is a widely regarded rising businessman. The Republican National Committee is happy to welcome him to assist our efforts and other appointments will be made as is appropriate.” - 30 - [OOC: The Trump appointment is for flavor and as he is our future President God-Emperor, I say why not?

    Christopher Reed for Florida Social Issues. Abortion. Life begins at conception. I believe that we should end abortion on demand except for rape, incest, and the mother’s life. Roe v. Wade was a terrible decision and upended 150 years of abortion law in the states in the name of creating a so called right that killed tens of millions of unborn infants. Specifically, third trimester abortions and partial birth abortions should be banned. Guns. I support the right to bear arms. Many Floridians are law abiding gun owners who have stayed within the rule of law. Those who want to take away our guns are people who don’t understand our culture and our way of life. Prayer in Schools. We are a nation under God and we should allow schools to have a moment of silence for all faiths to observe their faith in peace. Death penalty. We should use the death penalty to punish violent criminals who cause irreparable harm. The death penalty can effectively showcase society’s response to those who have no respect for the rule of law. Crime. As crime skyrockets around our urban areas in the year 1988, we need to crack down on crime. The “Broken Glass” theory is an appropriate tool to crack down on crime, in the sense that if we go after those who commit small ball crime, they will in the end be stopped from committing larger crimes. I support the Justice Department working with local police departments and district attorneys to go after criminals, wherever they are. Defense of Marriage Act. I support wholeheartedly the Defense of Marriage Act and believe that while we must respect gays and lesbians, marriage remains between a man and a woman and is a holy institution sanctified in the eyes of God. Economic Issues. Reagan Tax Cuts. The Reagan tax cut of 1981 and 1986 have launched an amazing 6 year economic boom that have inspired the U.S. economy to reach heights hitherto undreamed of. Unleashing the economy’s creativity and potential through deregulation, we have been able to bring prosperity to millions of Americans who suffered the “Misery Index” of the 1970s. Free Trade. Free trade is the lifeblood of the American economy and opening up our markets and opening up other markets to American companies has bolstered our prosperity and strengthened our economy. America is better off with free trade. However, we must have free trade that is with fair access - meaning foreign markets cannot wall off their markets to us, or unfairly help their companies while disadvantaging us or “dumping” on our goods, like the semiconductor industry. Free trade must come with fair access to markets for our companies. Deficits. The Reagan arms buildup was necessary to combat the Evil Empire, such as it was. However, we must hold spending down and grow the economy to restrain our deficits. In the long run, it’s important that our interest rates be low enough to service our debt so that more dollars are not consumed by the debt and go to necessary programs to help our fellow Americans. Welfare Reform. We should block grant TANF to the states, and allow states to set welfare requirements as they see fit, to ease the rising welfare rolls. Not only that, we should make TANF a truly temporary program for those in need rather than a lifelong subsidy. It is tough love, and tough medicine that will help our nation’s fiscal solvency. Foreign Policy and Defense. The Evil Empire (“The USSR”). The 40th President has taken a rightful hardline against one of the greatest evil known to mankind, the Soviet Union. With deft negotiating and a skillful arms buildup, President Ronald Reagan has stopped the Soviet menace in its tracks and is even now beating back the godless Communists. We should support President Reagan in his policies towards the Evil Empire. Afghanistan. We must back the mujahideen against the Soviet Union’s forces attempting to beat Afghanistan into submission. Only by supporting them can we bleed the Soviet Union dry and force them to spend precious resources to get Afghanistan in their corner, thus tying them down in their own “Vietnam.” Detente. Detente is a policy the Soviets have used to try to win legitimacy for a dark and evil empire that is barbarous in nature and imprisons dissidents and critics alike. President Reagan rightfully junked the policy in his first week as President and we are better off for it. Our competition with the Soviet Union is a rightful debate on whether man should take the latest step into freedom or the first step into a thousand years of darkness. We must never forget, the Politburo has committed to global expansion of Communism. Iran Contra. It is a regrettable affair what happened to President Reagan and his Administration. I accept the 40th President’s apology and believe him genuine in his contrition that he did wrong. I believe it’s time to move on. Defense Spending. I believe the arms race is an appropriate measure to bleed the Evil Empire and to force them to the negotiating table to commit to important reductions in their aggression towards Eastern Europe and other areas. Pershing II Missiles in Western Europe. They are an important and crucial deterrent to the Soviet Union in Western Europe and an important reassurance to our allies that we are committed to their defence and protection against the Soviet Union launching nuclear missiles that could wipe out Europe.

    Ralph Staples Barrett Republican of Arizona 2nd For Immediate Release Marriage is An Institution (Phoenix, Ariz.) Representative Barrett urged the Democrat - led majority in the House to put the Defense of Marriage Act, sponsored by Representative Marshall, on the House floor. "It is ridiculous that the Democrat - led majority and the Far Left is refusing to put the Defense of Marriage Act on the US House Floor. It passed with bipartisan support in the Judiciary Committee and should see the Floor. We can all agree that the institution of marriage is a holy one, between a man and a woman, in the eyes of God. Well, maybe not the House Democrat leadership. Over sixty percent of the American people believe in marriage remaining between men and women. This is a common sense measure that should pass Congress easily. Yet the Democrat leadership won't even do that. Indeed, I think the fact the Far Left being unable to be in line with heartland and mainstream values is a telling reason why President Ronald Reagan won twice and why the Republicans are doing so well in the eighties. The Democratic Party is out of touch, per usual, which is shocking to nobody at all." - 30 -
