Suggested Acceptance Speech for the 2004 Democratic Presidential Nominee
May 11, 2001
by TygrBright

My fellow Americans,

I don't want to take away your guns.

I am deeply honored by the Democratic nomination for President, and I don't want to take away your guns. I will do my best, as your chosen candidate, to represent the Democratic Party and platform to the American people. Plus, I don't want to take away your guns.

There are many complex challenges facing us as a nation in the next four years, but I don't want to take away your guns. I feel that with the hard work and determination that have always characterized our Party's membership, we can show America that I don't want to take away your guns.

It will be a special goal of my campaign to demonstrate to the American people that I don't want to take away your guns, and to listen to the hopes and concerns of all of our citizens. And, by the way, I don't want to take away your guns.

We Democrats have always been the Party of America's working people, farmers, and families, and I don't want to take away your guns. The policies that help us keep our families and children healthy will produce peace and prosperity for all Americans, and I promise that I don't want to take away your guns.

Some of the most important issues that face our nation include an inadequate educational system, which my administration will address by not taking away your guns. We will also make a strong stand on protecting the environment, the heritage of every American. My program of not taking away your guns will help us conserve the most important natural assets of our great country.

(show emotion here, bang the podium gently with fist)

What America needs is out-of-the-box thinking! And our Party can deliver what America needs because (slowly, with emphasis) I…don't…want…to…take…away…your…guns!

(wait for applause to subside)

As your candidate for the Presidency, I feel deeply my responsibility to ensure the well-being of every sector of our economy. This is why I don't want to take away your guns. We can work creatively to bring together the business community and the interests of labor to build a strong economy that will not take away anyone's guns!

(etc., etc., etc...)
