From the Republican National Convention, Local Representative Keeps Patch Informed

Georgia Rep. Bruce Williamson is a member of the Georgia Delegation at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. He is sharing his experiences with Patch in Gwinnett County.

From Georgia Rep. Bruce Williamson (R-Monroe):

Tuesday's Theme - "We Built It"

We are a nation made great by the extraordinary aspirations of ordinary men and women who summoned the inner drive, discipline and persistent effort to achieve their dreams within a free enterprise system that enabled them to do so.

America's entrepreneurs ask not for guarantees of success, but only for the chance to try; by seeking merely the opportunity to apply our God-given talents in single-minded devotion to our goals, we have earned every right to demand that government does not impede our path.

Across the nation, Republican governors have summoned the courage to return to the principles that allow entrepreneurs to create jobs: limiting spending, reducing debt and restraining unnecessary regulation.   

While they have achieved success in restoring economic vitality in their states, their efforts have been frustrated by the Obama administration, whose policies have stifled job creation and hindered economic growth.

Those policies have failed because Barack Obama believes that it is government, not individual Americans, that produces economic growth and creates jobs. 

Mitt Romney knows better.  The engine of prosperity is fueled by American men and women with dreams and determination to create a better future for themselves and their families.  Mitt Romney wants to give them the tools and the freedom they need to do so - and to let them keep more of what they work so hard for.

Williamson also shared a photograph from the convention.

"Got a chance to visit with Congressman Tom Graves who is a taxpayer champion in Washington. Tom is fighting hard for conservatism in DC and I am proud to call him a friend," Williamson said.
