Jindal: Put Faith in Individuals
by

After a handful of light-hearted, nerdy jokes to open his CPAC speech, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal spoke about where the GOP needs to go as a political party.

Jindal said it’s shortsighted for conservatives to make their case on “who can better control the federal government.” It’s a “rigged game,” he said, “a sideshow trap,” and “the wrong game for us to be playing.”

To win the argument, he said, conservatives must put their faith in individuals. “Government doesn’t order greatness,” he said. “What sets us apart is not our government, but free individuals taking risks, building businesses, inventing things from thin air, passing immutable values from one generation to the next. That is the root of America’s greatness.”
