Jack Kemp, accepting the 1996 vice presidential nomination

You see, our goal is not just a more prosperous America, but a better America. An America that recognizes the infinite worthwhile of every individual and, like the Good Shepherd, leaves the 99 to find the one stray lamb

An America that transcends the boundaries between the races with the revolutionary power of the simple, yet profound idea to love our neighbors as ourselves 
We must remember all that is at stake in America's cultural renewal -- not just the wealth of our nation but the meaning as well
