It's about the hundreds of Indiana workers who just found out their jobs are heading to Mexico.

It's about the Disney employees who were fired -- and then forced to train their foreign replacements.

It's about a systematic invasion of our nation by illegal aliens -- while our government turns a blind eye.

It's about people like Kate Steinle -- murdered on American soil -- by an illegal immigrant.

It's about a war on religious liberty -- and our right to bear arms.

It's about a feckless government that refuses to acknowledge we are at war with radical Islam.

For the past eight years -- we have been told that America is no longer an exceptional nation -- that we are responsible for global chaos.

The American people are fed up. And now we're serving notice on both parties: We are beholden to no one -- Republican or Democrat -- and if we have to burn down the village to save village -- then burn, baby, burn.

That's what this election is all about.
