like. mean obamacare will permanent it would mean since the time they were elected, the next president is least two toint at three people to the supreme court, you will get people that the constitution, not support it. it would mean our standing in weaker andould be not stronger. that's what it will mean if they win. cannot win.hey that's why we must win this election. what's at stake is our identity. most elections are a choice between a republican and a one more conservative, one more liberal. this electronic is so much deeper than that. election is a choice. it's a referendum on our identity. what kind of country will america be in the 21st century? it's been the greatest nation in the history of the world. enough.t say that [applause] never automatic.
6:33 pm
the greatness of america is the and thef the sacrifices hard work that the people who came before us did. it's what your parents and grandparents and great grandparents went over 200 years lefterican generations behind. it's the life we live today. now the time has come for us to decide what kind of country we're going to leave behind for our children. road that we the are now, it would not be the greatest country in the world, not be as great as it was left for us. i will say this every chance i get. barack obama is trying to change america. wants to make us more like the rest of the world. i don't want to be like thes are be theworld, i want to united states. you want to be the united states. is anone doubts that this effort to redefine our country,
6:34 pm
obamacare is an effort to put ourgovernment in chore of healthcare. these executive orders are an effort to undermine, ignore and our constitution. the deal with iran is an effort to undermine ultimately what people think about us around the world. this is a president that thinks we're an arrogant global power that need to be cut down to size. concerted organized, deliberate effort to change america. this continues, we're going to have to explain to our kids to grow up to the greatest country in the world and they did not. way.esn't have to be this there is another road before us. that allows us not just to keep america the greatest country in the world. to leave our children the freest, most prosperous of
6:35 pm

6:36 pm
barack obama. is,the truth of the matter we have to nominate first and foremost that can win. we've got to win this election. lose.'t you know why i know that i will win, hillary clinton is scared of us. this morning,hat she went on face the nation, attacked me again. they attack me more than any other republican. they know if i'm our nominee, we win. we win? why because i am the only one left theing that can unify conservative movement. if we're divided. win if we are we can't. they want us fighting against time.ther for months at a they want us arguing with each other into october and november. that's what they want. towill not allow that happen. we must unify this movement but that's not enough.
6:37 pm
grow it.o you know how we're going to grow the conservative movement, we're going to take our message to haven't voted for us before. we're going to take our message to the millions of americans who struggling living paycheck to paycheck. the left has been telling them conservatives don't care about people like you. they only care about the rich. obama years, record number of people on government dependence. livingnumber of people in poverty, record number of labor dropped out the force. we need to take our message to them. i can do that. i can do go to people living paycheck to paycheck. hillary clinton can't lecture me about people living paycheck to paycheck. i grew up paycheck to paycheck. paycheck.ycheck to take our message to younger americans some of ofm living with tens

6:39 pm
if wedo these two things, unify the conservative movement and the republican party and we grow it, we win. a chance to have undo all of this damage barack done.has it will begin right away. if i take the oath of office, that is not the just the ceremony. that is a oath to protect, defend and uphold instead of ignore, undermine and destroy our constitutional rights. that's what barack obama has been doing now. the second amendment. he issues all of these executive orders without regard whether or not he has the power. i'm president of the united states, after i take the oath of straight togoing the oath office and i will hisal every single one of unconstitutional executive orders. going'm president, we're to have a president that tackles the debt. let me say this on the debt. a bipartisan debt. both parties ran it up. no one wants to do anything
6:40 pm

6:44 pm

6:51 pm
home. you know that three decades later they retired with dignity and security, not with wealth but with dignity and security. most important thing for my parents, they lived to see all four of their children be better off than them. [applause] you know how calming that is here. standing right now here today almost every single one of you have a story just it. every single one of us. it's one or two generations removed from someone who made the purpose of their lives to give us the chance of something better. this is who we are. whether it was grandparents or your parents or what your parents did for you. you're doing for your kids now. for people who work hard and sacrifice everyday like my worked into his 70's, late at night, weekends and as a banquet bartenders.
6:52 pm
he wanted us to have a chance to do whatever we warranted -- wanted. story.e american it's so common here. it's so rare almost everywhere else. society that lived in a that decided who you can become on the day that you were born, your parents were rich and famous, and connected you had a shot. were anybodyts else, you were stuck. imagine living in a place like that. how tells you no matter hard you work, you can only go so far because you don't come from the right family. from the right background? that to us?is that's what we're trying to preserve. that's the american dream that trying to leave behind. that did not happen by accident. why this has been such a special and unique country because, the people that had before us did what they to do. for over two centuries, each generation of americans challenges.heir now the time has come for us to do the same.
6:53 pm
i'm our president. you elect me president, we will confront our challenges. will apply the principles that made us great to the unique challenges of the 21st century. is done, no matter how tough things may seem now, i want you to know the future that awaits us if we do what needs to be done now. here's the future that awaits us. the american dream won't just survive. it is going to reach more people lives.nge more our kids are going to become the prosperousthe most americans. the 21st century is going to be better than the 20th century. go down in history as the new american century. we'll do [applause] with have this gentleman the flag and a microphone. this young lady with a flag and microphone. soyou will find them everybody can hear your
6:54 pm
question. if you ask without the i may have to repeat it. >> the supreme court, tell me about the type of people you the supremeon court. , justiceustice scalia thomas. judges that understand their job theot to manipulate constitution or create loopholes in the constitution. the job of the supreme court apply the to constitution of the united states as originally intended by of this great land. >> as you, the federal government debt is to high that everybody owes $50,000. i don't have a tv in my room. much money?e so >> what's your name? >> hank. >> how old are you? >> nine.
6:55 pm
>> nine. question, hank. right hank. what's happening in our country is unfair to you. we have people in washington care.on't their argument is i don't want to deal with this issue because i may lose my next election. figure it out eventually because not now because i go the tot get reelected. reasons why it's happening is because the federal government has nothing to stop keep spending money. they can keep printing and money but not forever. under this president, he has debt more than every president before him combined. other thing that's driving this five years, 83% ofour budget will be made four things. medicare, medicaid and social and interest on the debt. we'll have to fund roads and programs and the u.s. military.
6:56 pm
that's not sustainable. debt crisis. let me tell what's going to happen the people who borrow money from. they'll say i'm not sure america can pay us back. we will stop lending you money interest.more when that happens, we're going to be spending more on interest military.e on we have a real crisis. by the time you're an adult, i we keeparly you, if doing what we doing now before you're in high school, we might crisis.t debt we have to fix it. to save social security medicare. my father passed away from cancer. provided not just his care but hospice care. it allowed him to die with dignity and security. my parents worked hear for many years. every time they got a paycheck, the government took money saying we will put this money into a fund.l when you retire, we'll take care
6:57 pm
repay youalthcare and for the benefits back. so when you retire you'll be able to have a standard of living. programs are going bankrupt. when they were designed they were 16 people paying in. now it's down to three to one. soon it will be down two to one. here's the good news. the good news we can fix those programs. disrupt have to anything for people that are on it now or about to retire. truth.the social security and medicare different for you and me. retireow i'm supposed to when i'm 67. i have to retire when i'm 68. of money, myot social security will not grow fast. medicare could be the option of my money and using it to buy a private plane that i like better. we have that now it's called medicare advantage. it's going to be the best thing in the world. it will be different from the people that are on it now.
6:58 pm
if we combine it by growing our sustained way, then we can bring the debt under control. we're not going to have a debt and you're going to have dream.e at the american your question is embedded how important this election is. not a exaggeration that we identity of the this nation. we're going to be facing a debt crisis. debt crisis is not like crisis.debt greece nice country. have a debt crisis, it has a ripple effect in the entire global economy. i'm runningeasons for president is to deal with this debt once and for all. and my four kids. you, i want those
6:59 pm
programs to exist. i don't want my mom to have to through any disruptions, she's 85. i want to >> as president, will you stand up against the corporations that are now starting to make billions of dollars in profits from the massive transfer of spending that the pentagon is undertaking, transferring spending into renewed spending on nuclear weapons, weapons which endanger us all and only enrich corporations? sen. rubio: well, we are going to modernize our nuclear arsenal when i'm president and we are going to modernize it because china is modernizing theirs and russia is modernizing theirs. because north korea now has nuclear weapons and iran will soon have them. because pakistan and india have nuclear weapons. and, the truth is that the reduction of our military capabilities is actually going to make us more dangerous. if a country ever thinks they
7:00 pm
can win a nuclear war, they may actually launch one. what kept the world from having a third world war, a nuclear exchange, is that the soviets didn't want to die and neither did we, and neither of us felt we could survive a nuclear war, so neither one of them undertook it. and so, the bottom line is we need to maintain that balance. if a leader or a country thinks they might be able to survive and win a nuclear exchange, it heightens the prospect. we are going to modernize our arsenal and the second thing we are going to deal with is proliferation. i told you this earlier. the leader of north korea is crazy. he is insane, he is a lunatic, but he has nuclear weapons and long-range rockets that can probably already reached california. iran is governed by an apocalyptic shia cleric. he believes his job is to trigger an apocalypse. what if those nuclear weapons hand up in the hands of a terrorist group?
7:01 pm
we need to worry about proliferation, which is why the missile defense is so important. now, you talk about corporations, i do think we need to fix procurement in the defense department. we are not actually spending a lot of money these days on new weapons programs. the vast majority is going to a growing civilian workforce in the defense department and that needs to be dealt with. every dollar that's wasted in the defense department is a dollar that is not keeping us safe. we need to deal with procurement but we cannot in this world -- as dangerous as it's become -- gut our military capabilities. i want peace, all of you want peace. america wants peace, but strength is what leads to peace. weakness invites war. weakness invites miscalculation. [applause] sen. rubio: yes, sir, thank you for your service. air force retired, is that you? thank you. [applause] >> that's actually, marco, related to two statements i'd like to make.
7:02 pm
number one is when you become president and you re-equip the united states military, i want you to let do their job. sen. rubio: yes, sir. >> the second i ask as a favor. you've got my vote if you do one thing. when you become president, you will not pardon hillary. [applause] sen. rubio: well, i think that's actually her plan, is to pardon herself. on the rules of engagement, absolutely. i mean, we are asking men and women to going to go in the harm's way and, yes, we want to avoid civilian casualties. absolutely. we don't want to indiscriminately strike at people. we go through extraordinary measures. but you should not be committing forces to a military engagement if you are not providing them with the rules of engagement but also the equipment they need, the resources they need to win.
7:03 pm
you have to define what victory is and you have to allow them to win. we should be very cautious in the use of military force. it should be a last resort. in fact, i believe force should only be used in the furtherance of peace. so, why do i believe we need to further attack isis from the air and help lead a coalition on the ground? because isis is an enemy of peace. isis does not have a diplomatic corps. either they win, or we win. we have no choice. there is no peaceful coexistence with a group like isis. it they will only continue to grow until that threat reaches us here at home and around the world. so, at all costs we want to be able to avoid war and violence. i don't know anyone who is in favor of war for the sake of war. but sadly, we live in a dangerous world where evil still looms. and when that has to be confronted, we must give the most powerful military in the world the rules of engagement and the resources they need to win so that peace can prevail. [applause]
7:04 pm
sen. rubio: can we get one more after this, please? ok. >> what would you do about -- [indiscernible] sen. rubio: he's going like this. he needs his mic. alright, there we go. >> what will you do about protecting christians in the middle east from being massacred? sen. rubio: the first is to call it what you just said. it's genocide. what's happening with christians in the middle east is genocide. and it's not just in iraq and syria. christian communities in virtually every middle eastern country is shrinking rapidly. in the city of mosul there are ancient communities that have been there for 1700 years. for the first time ever, there is no presence left. so, i think a couple things need to happen. we need to provide safe haven so they don't have to leave the region and they can return to their ancestral homeland after they are liberated.
7:05 pm
number two is i think they should be given the opportunity to be a part of the coalition to defeat isis. there are willing fighters among the christians in that region that want, at the minimum, the opportunity to defend themselves and their families as opposed to having to depend on shia militias, on sunni tribes, or on kurds. they have a right to be able to defend themselves. these are important things. they're being driven from communities and their churches are being destroyed. these are ancient communities. i do think that is one of the reasons i support the creation of safe havens in the region, so they don't have to travel 2000 miles away. so that they can return to their homes when isis has been defeated and to ensure that in the future of iraq and syria, that they have the right to self-determination and representation and they will be protected in that region. [applause] >> good morning, senator. sen. rubio: is it morning?
7:06 pm
it's past noon. >> i have no idea. i understand you are concerned about the north korea threat and i know everyone here shares that concern. this has been a country that has vexed administrations across the board. what do you propose differently that is different from what they have done? sen. rubio: north korea should be returned to the state sponsors of terrorism list. that has real implications. second, there are individuals and north korea that are very wealthy that are aligned with the government. we know they move assets and resources all over the world. we should be sanctioning individuals around the elite that surround the north korean government. north korea has no real economy, but it does have a cadre of very elites that are very wealthy and move their money. we should go after their resources. the third is we need a missile defense shield. we need to protect this country from a launch of long-range missiles from north korea. that's why working with japan and south korea is so critical.
7:07 pm
the japanese in particular have a very capable navy. a lot of people don't realize it because japan is called a self-defense force, but the japanese navy may be fifth or sixth most capable on the planet. and recently, japan has reinterpreted, or somehow found a creative way, to allow for something called collective self-defense. under previous law in japan, japan could only respond to an attack if they were directly attacked. which meant if a u.s. naval vessel came under attack, if there was a rocket launch against south korea, japan couldn't do anything about it under their laws. they were only able to respond if they were directly attacked. now, they are arguing and are taking the position that they are allowed to come to the collective self-defense of their allies if they come under attack. why is that important? because they and their navy are a critical part of missile defense capabilities. the ability to shoot down a north korean rocket launch in the region before it reaches california, japan, or south
7:08 pm
korea. we also need a west coast missile defense shield to protect us from a nuclear launch from north korea. because they don't just have warheads, they are increasingly increasing the range and precision of their rockets. it is not outside the realm of possibility that in less than a decade, north korea will possess rockets capable of hitting as for away as the midwest of the united states, and then they hold us hostage. ultimately, you would love to see a change in government in north korea. it is a very, very difficult place to predict what's going to happen. it is not a normal government, to say the least. its new leader has literally executed virtually anyone around him that didn't respect him, much less support them. and so there's a lot of instability and turmoil there. hopefully one day there will be a unified korea and it is looking more like the south and the north. but in the interim, the most we can do is protect ourselves from it, and that means having a west coast defense shield and working with allies in the region, particularly japan, to have a
7:09 pm
localized missile-defense shield that protects them and our pacific assets from attack from north korea. put them back on a list of sponsored members of terrorism and individually sanction individuals related to the north korean government. go after their money, their bank accounts, and their assets all over the world. [applause] sen. rubio: i will need to wrap up the question portion because i have to get to my next event. i just want to close by thanking you for being a part of this and thank you for being here today, and once again asking you for your vote. i'm asking that if you want to be a part of our team, sign up to volunteer, sign up to be a part of our effort. we will bombard you with e-mails for just a day and then we will leave you alone. then we will come back in august because we will win new hampshire and the general election and we will take back this country. thank you, and god bless.

[indiscernible chatting] >> we are at the marco rubio event as you saw senator rubio worked the room until it was virtually empty, but a few people have a state after to talk to us. this is jack and he is 18. this is your first election. what has it been like. since 2004 i've been following the races, and it is cool to finally get involved. it was a little disappointing morese i was hoping to get substance. it was strange to have to deal with such a limited field this
7:48 pm
time around, but the good news is it has made my choice relatively easy. >> are you an independent? >> yes. belize, mixed set of but in general i am middle right. i think he showed more policy acumen than you see from the usual candidate. he showed up more skill and knowledge of the issues that -- then i expected him to have. i think seeing him talk about the issues and beat really substantive about the issues really made my decision for me. from hisbout the rap competitors that he doesn't have the experience? >> well, look at his competitors.
7:49 pm
you have donald trump who has never held a governmental position. i think he has jumped the most leadership and knowledge. on the florida state level, he showed ability to do things. he has a show knowledge of the ability to do the job. >> last night's debate, did you watch? >> i did and i was a little disappointed. >> thank you for talking to us. >> thank you. i am with joann who lives ord. in bed for -- in bedf marco.nted to hear what did you think of how he
7:50 pm
came across last night? >> at the end i was very happy. i think he fell into christie's trap, i like how he was answering all the questions in the second half of the debate. i think i could go for marco. >> what did you see today? i think he can bring the youth back to the country. he is running a positive campaign, answering questions the way i want to hear. i want the economy to grow and i want someone who is not negative. someone who can work with both sides. >> are you a republican or independent? >> republican most of the time. >> what do you think tuesday will be like? >> i'm not sure. about 95% towards marco. i like john kasich and jeb bush. votingdecide in the
7:51 pm
booth on tuesday. excitement?evel of >> i think this is the most important. i want someone who is going to take care of this country and bring it back to where it used to be. >> thank you for speaking with us. >> thank you. >> we have a whole family who came to the marco rubio event so let's meet them. was your name? >> lily. >> what did you think of what you saw? >> if i could vote i would vote for marco rubio because it seems like he would be a good businessman and do a lot of good things, and he seems like he would be a mix of two of the other people i like. >> who are the other two you
7:52 pm
like? trump. and they seem like they get a lot done and they would help the country. >> what did you think of all the excitement? >> i think it was good. would vote for either rubio or trump if i was able to vote. >> why do you like mr. trump? >> because i haven't seen a lot of people like him. >> well, there you go. why did you come today? >> i'm still undecided and we have less than 48 hours to go here i'm a registered independent so i know it is an important vote this year. i wanted to hear what of the candidates and get more than just the soundbites. we have been following pretty closely.
7:53 pm
i did hear a lot of good points today, and i think that helps me , but i am still on the fence. for me, i think national security is a big issue and i would love to see obama care repealed. my husband is self-employed and so that has been a big issue for us when we lost our insurance. the first year we had to apply for a waiver to have permission to not have coverage just because of the finances. it has been difficult for us as a family. i've spent countless hours on the phone with exchange people trying to get things taken care of. i had to prove my citizenship for the three of us. i'd love to see that headache go away. >> are you also undecided? >> yes but i will probably vote republican this time. 2012? did you vote for in >> romney.
7:54 pm
i have voted republican in the past. but i am undecided between cruz, trump, and rubio. >> what will tip the balance? >> i don't know if there will be a last-minute epiphany. i like what rubio said today, what i also feel like trump and cruz seem to be exciting the voters more and getting more turnout. like, in iowa, it was the highest turnout they ever had. but i think a lot of that is the "non-establishment candidates." have the cruz or trump ability to gather more votes in the general election. speaking withor
7:55 pm
me today. >> thank you. folks these are our final talking to us after the marco rubio event. let's find out what they thought. >> eric anderson. >> natalie anderson. >> and a sylvia anderson. >> what brought you out today? >> meeting marco rubio. we really wanted to meet him. he is just a personable guy that we can relate to. he is in a similar age bracket with similar views. he is a pleasure to meet. >> what did you think of what you saw today? >> i think he really cared about the america i am going

to live in when i am an adult. he has kids my age and he can understand us, and i think that was a really good thing, seeing as we are the future. >> how old are you? >> i'm 14. -- areinterested you are you in politics? >> not super interested, but i know that is what our country is based on, and we need someone who knows what our country needs. >> is this your candidate? ind up?u made your my >> yes. i think he has the best chance to win in november. i just can't see donald trump getting enough people together to win. >> did you watch last night's
7:57 pm
debate? what did you think of his performance? i think he got hit hard pretty early, but he did come back in the second half and did fine. it is important a person can handle himself under pressure, and he has proven he can do that. >> you have been bombarded with ads over the past couple of weeks. what is it like on wednesday when this is all over? a lobby signs will get cleaned up and our client -- our town will be cleaner. it will be interesting to see what happens on tuesday. is it really fun having politics come to your doorstep every four years? >> absolutely. it is a great education for our kids and for me. it is wonderful that we get to meet them. do you think new hampshire
7:58 pm
should retain its first in the nation status? >> absolutely. >> thank you very much for talking with us at the marco review -- marco rubio event here in new hampshire. this is the end of our coverage, but remember, has coverage for all our events. election day is always exciting. be showing our viewers what is happening at the polling places in a couple of key parts of the manchester area. a really2, we have had good partnership with the abc affiliate in manchester, new hampshire. so we have a chance to really
