"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
Ronald Reagan

CPAC 2013 - Eric Cantor

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday (3/15/2013).

Cantor struck a somber tone and used anecdotal stories of inner-city children in a narrow speech arguing for school choice. "School choice is the answer," Cantor said.

His speech was not particularly partisan, although at one point he urged President Barack Obama and Democrats "to see the light."

Cantor went on to invoke an adage from former President Ronald Reagan: "If we can't make them see the light, we'll make them feel the heat," Cantor said. The House Republican leader closed his remarks with a plea for Republican solidarity.

"Conservative ideas win," he said.
