His main theme of this speech was to show people that in order to make America the greatest nation in the world, we must not focus on distractions that the nation may face and we must unite as one to improve and push towards perfection. His first example of plain folk comes very early in the speech when he reflects to when the main goal of all Americans in the spring of 1787 was the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He reflects and relates to demonstrate a time where America had to come together and agree on one idea, in this case, when Americans, “...escaped tyranny and persecution [to] finally make their declaration of independence…”. This is an example of plain folk because it is a piece of history all American students are taught and many US citizens consider the groundwork for our nation; therefore it is very engaging.

The Democratic-Republican Party, led by Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun, now favored policies that would encourage economic growth other than the agricultural policies of the Jefferson era. The party now wanted to recreate the national banking system, make a national internal improvement, and to raise tariffs on imported goods. The Second National Bank was established in 1816 with the support of Calhoun, the southern and the western congressmen. While northern representatives, New England Federalists, opposed the bank, a reversal of party beliefs.
Huckabee wants to change education for the better. “He doesn’t shy away from calling for the end to the Common Core curriculum standards and the federal Department of Education.” He wants to create a system where education is fair equal.
