Mia Love used the political platform at the Conservative Political Action Conference to share her inspiring life journey of one from struggle to success.
Love, the first black Republican woman elected to Congress has lot to be proud of, but she used the pride she has for her parents to explain why it is vital to protect the American Dream by limiting government.
Love’s parents immigrated to America from Haiti in the 1970’s with only $10.
Like so many immigrants who come to work hard and make it on their own they achieved success – eventually. While their road wasn’t easy, their perseverance paid off.
But Love warns, perseverance might not be enough to reach your goals in today’s job stifling and over-regulated bureaucratic climate.
“Independent people are the ones that give back. Washington can’t do that. Washington needs to get smaller so people are bigger… Their job is to keep their job.
“We have to cut the bloodline to these bureaucracies, which is the funding,” she said according to Townhall Magazine.
Love is full of wisdom that she draws from real life analogies.
Telling the story of an exhilarating hot-air balloon ride she and her daughter experienced, she explained how her son, who had watched them fly, had felt after they landed.
Her seven-year-old son, Peyton, wasn’t on the ride because he had turned the offer down.
“Peyton watched the excitement from the ground. He runs over and says, ‘I’m ready, it’s my turn! But, the opportunity for him to soar and rise to the sky had come and gone. I said, ‘remember this experience, remember today…If you do not take the opportunities that come today, you’ll never know if they’ll come back,” Love said.
Love made it clear that she is serving the American people to provide as much opportunity for success as possible. And the only way to do that, is to put the power back where it belongs – in the hands of the people.
“Conservative policies work. I’ve seen them work as a mother, as a mayor, and I use them now as a member of Congress…The American people deserve the opportunity to rise to the occasion,” Love said.
