Ask Carly: Liberty


Breitbart News Radio Listeners ask:

What is your definition of Liberty?

Carly Fiorina:

My definition of liberty is that every person, no matter what they look like, who they are, what their circumstances are, every person’s life is filled with the possibilities that come from their God-given gifts. When our founders talked about the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, what they were talking about was the right to fulfill our potential – each of us – the right to find and use our God-given gifts. And the visionary part of our founders’ statement – life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness – was they believed, as do I, that that right, to find and use your God-given gifts, comes from God, and should not be taken away by man or government.

I am running for president because we have reached a pivotal point in our nation’s history, where the cost, complexity, power, ineptitude, corruption of the federal government, its sheer weight, is crushing the potential of this nation and preventing individual Americans from pursuing their God-given gifts.
