  • >> THANK YOU.

  • >> THANK YOU.

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH.

  • VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, MR. CHIEF

  • JUSTICE, MEMBERS OF THE UNITED

  • STATES CONGRESS, DISTINGUISHED

  • GUESTS, AND FELLOW CITIZENS,

  • EACH TIME WE GATHER TO

  • INAUGURATE A PRESIDENT, BEAR

  • WITNESS TO THE ENDURING STRENGTH

  • OF OUR CONSTITUTION.

  • WE AFFIRM OUR PROMISE TO

  • DEMOCRACY.

  • WE LEARN THAT WHAT BINDS THIS

  • NATION TOGETHER IS NOT THE

  • COLORS OF OUR SKIN, OR THE

  • TENETS OF OUR FAITH, OR THE

  • ORIGINS OF OUR NAMES.

  • WHAT MAKES US EXCEPTIONAL, WHAT

  • MAKES US AMERICAN, IS OUR

  • ALLEGIANCE TO AN IDEA

  • ARTICULATED IN A DECLARATION

  • MADE MORE THAN TWO CENTURIES

  • AGO.

  • WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE

  • SELF-EVIDENT, THAT ALL MEN ARE

  • CREATED EQUAL.

  • THAT THEY ARE ENDOWD BY THEIR

  • CREATOR, WITH CERTAIN ENAILIBLE

  • RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THESE ARE

  • LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF

  • HAPPINESS.

  • TODAY, WE CONTINUE A

  • NEVER-ENDING JOURNEY, TO BRIDGE

  • THE MEANING OF THOSE WORDS WITH

  • THE REALITIES OF OUR TIME.

  • FOR HISTORY TELLS US, THAT WHILE

  • THESE TRUTHS MAY BE

  • SELF-EVIDENT, THEY'VE NEVER BEEN

  • SELF-EXECUTING.

  • WHILE FREEDOM IS A GIFT FROM

  • GOD, IT MUST BE SECURED BY HIS

  • PEOPLE HERE ON EARTH.

  • THE PATRIOTS OF 1776 DID NOT

  • FIGHT TO REPLACE THE TYRANNY OF

  • A KING WITH THE PRIVILEGES OF A

  • FEW OR THE RULE OF A MOB.

  • THEY GAVE TO US A REPUBLIC, A

  • GOVERNMENT OF AND BY AND FOR THE

  • PEOPLE.

  • AND TRUSTING EACH GENERATION TO

  • KEEP SAFE OUR FOUNDING CREED.

  • IN 4 MORE THAN 200 YEARS, WE

  • HAVE.

  • BLOOD DRAWN BY FLASH AND BY

  • SWORD, WE KNOW NO UNION ON

  • PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY AND

  • EQUALITY COULD SURVIVE

  • HALF-SLAVE AND HALF-FREE.

  • WE MADE OURSELVES ANEW, AND

  • VOWED TO MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER.

  • TOGETHER, WE DETERMINED THAT A

  • MODERN ECONOMY REQUIRES

  • RAILROADS AND HIGHWAYS, SCHOOLS,

  • ECONOMISTS TO TRAIN OUR WORKERS.

  • TOGETHER, WE DISCOVERED THAT A

  • FREE MARKET ONLY THRIVES WHEN

  • THERE'S RULES TO ENSURE FAIR

  • COMPETITION AND FAIR PLAY.

  • TOGETHER, WE RESOLVE THAT A

  • GREAT NATION MUST CARE FOR THE

  • VULNERABLE AND PROTECT ITS

  • PEOPLE FROM LIFE'S WORST HAZARDS

  • AND MISFORTUNE.

  • THROUGH IT ALL, WE HAVE NEVER

  • RELINQUISHED OUR SKEPTICISM OF

  • CENTRAL AUTHORITY, NOR HAVE WE

  • SUCCUMB TO THE FICTION THAT ALL

  • SOCIETY'S ILLS CAN BE CURED

  • THROUGH GOVERNMENT ALONE.

  • OUR CELEBRATION OF INITIATIVE

  • AND ENTERPRISE, OUR INSISTENCE

  • ON HARD WORK AND PERSONAL

  • RESPONSIBILITY.

  • THESE ARE CONSTANT IN OUR

  • CHARACTER.

  • WE HAVE ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD THAT

  • WHEN TIMES CHANGE, SO MUST WE.

  • THAT FIDELITY TO OUR FOUNDING

  • PRINCIPLES REQUIRES NEW

  • RESPONSES TO NEW CHALLENGES,

  • THAT PRESERVING OUR INDIVIDUAL

  • FREEDOMS ULTIMATELY REQUIRES

  • COLLECTIVE ACTION.

  • THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN NO MORE

  • MEET THE DEMANDS OF TODAY'S

  • WORLD ACTING ALONE, AS SOLDIERS

  • COULD HAVE MET COMMONISM OR

  • FASCISM, WITH MUSKETS OR

  • MILITIAS.

  • NO SINGLE SCIENCE TEACHER CAN

  • TEACH ALL OF THE MATH OR SCIENCE

  • OUR CHILDREN NEED FOR THE

  • FUTURE.

  • OR BUILD THE ROADS AND NETWORK

  • AND RESEARCH LABS THAT WILL

  • BRING THE JOBS AND BUSINESSES TO

  • OUR SHORES.

  • NOW, MORE THAN EVER, WE MUST DO

  • THESE THINGS TOGETHER, AS ONE

  • NATION AND ONE PEOPLE.

  • [ APPLAUSE ]

  • THIS GENERATION OF AMERICANS HAS

  • BEEN TESTED BY CRISES THAT STEEL

  • OUR RESOLVE AND PROVED OUR

  • RESILIENCE.

  • A DECADE OF WAR IS NOW ENDING.

  • [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

  • AN ECONOMIC RECOVERY HAS BEGUN.

  • AMERICA'S POSSIBILITIES ARE

  • LIMITLESS, FOR WE POSSESS ALL

  • THE QUALITIES THAT THIS WORLD

  • WITHOUT BOUNDARIES DEMANDS.

  • YOUTH AND DRIVE, DIVERSITY AND

  • OPENNESS.

  • AN ENDLESS CAPACITY FOR RISK AND

  • A GIFT FOR REINVENTION.

  • MY FELLOW AMERICANS, WE ARE MADE

  • FOR THIS MOMENT.

  • AND WE WILL SEE THAT SO LONG AS

  • WE SEIZE IT TOGETHER.

  • [ APPLAUSE ]

  • FOR WE, THE PEOPLE, UNDERSTAND

  • THAT OUR COUNTRY CANNOT SUCCEED

  • WHEN A SHRINKING FEW DO VERY

  • WELL AND A GROWING MANY BARELY

  • MAKE IT.

  • WE BELIEVE THAT AMERICA'S

  • PROSPERITY MUST REST UPON THE

  • BROAD SHOULDERS OF A RISING

  • MIDDLE CLASS.

  • WE KNOW THAT AMERICA THRIVES

  • WHENEV EVERY PERSON CAN PRIDE I

  • CAN LEVERAGE FAMILIES FROM THE

  • BRINK OF HARDSHIP.

  • WE'RE TRUE TO OUR CREED WHEN A

  • LITTLE GIRL BORN INTO THE

  • BLEAKEST POVERTY KNOWS SHE HAS

  • THE SAME CHANCE TO SUCCEED AS

  • ANYBODY ELSE BECAUSE SHE IS AN

  • AMERICAN, SHE IS FREE, AND SHE

  • IS EQUAL, NOT JUST IN THE EYES

  • OF GOD, BUT ALSO IN OUR OWN.

  • [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

  • WE UNDERSTAND THAT OUR PROGRAMS

  • ARE INADEQUATE FOR THE NEEDS OF

  • OUR TIME, SO WE MUST HARNESS NEW

  • IDEAS AND TECHNOLOGY TO REMAKE

  • OUR GOVERNMENT, REVAMP OUR TAX

  • CODE, REFORM OUR SCHOOLS AND

  • EMPOWER OUR CITIZENS WITH THE

  • SKILLS THEY NEED TO WORK HARDER,

  • LEARN MORE, REACH HIGHER.

  • BUT WHILE THE MEANS WILL CHANGE,

  • OUR PURPOSE ENDURES.

  • A NATION THAT REWARDS THE EFFORT

  • AND DETERMINATION OF EVERY

  • SINGLE AMERICAN.

  • THAT IS WHAT THIS MOMENT

  • REQUIRES.

  • THAT IS WHAT WILL GIVE REAL

  • MEANING TO OUR CREED.

  • WE, THE PEOPLE, STILL BELIEVE

  • THAT EVERY CITIZEN DESERVES A

  • BASIC MEASURE OF SECURITY AND

  • DIGNITY.

  • WE MUST MAKE THE HARD CHOICES TO

  • REDUCE THE COST OF HEALTH CARE

  • AND THE SIZE OF OUR DEFICIT.
