Sarah Palin Speaks At The National Tea Party Convention

Posted February 6th, 2010

On February 6th, 2010, former Governor, Sarah Palin, gives the keynote speech, at The National Tea Party Convention, in Nashville, Tennessee. In general, it was a conservative, well-delivered, and great speech! By in large, Sarah Palin, currently, appeals mostly to conservative citizens, in The United States; however, I do believe, as more people become disillusioned by the current disarray in Washington, D.C., and the ill-fated direction that the current President, and majority in Congress, are leading us toward, the more people will begin to tune into Sarah Palin, and other such political conservatives… hopefully, realizing, they are trying to restore us to The United States that was once great and prosperous, through free-market/entrepreneurial solutions, and a firm reliance on the (Constitution) wisdom of the great men who founded our country, and set this great country in motion.

Incidentally, today would have been former President, Ronald Reagan’s 99th birthday; it is great to see his wisdom, and legacy, is being carried on, by people such as Sarah Palin… 

Great speech Governor!

A Time For Choosing By Ronald Reagan

Posted October 27th, 2009

On October 27, 1964, Ronald Reagan gave this (below) great, and insightful speech, on behalf of Barry Goldwater, Republican candidate for the presidency of The United States. The entire speech can be read here.

If you forward the video to around 4:25, Reagan speaks these “hauntingly familiar” words:

“…they use terms like the “Great Society,” or as we were told a few days ago by the President, we must accept a “greater government activity in the affairs of the people.” But they have been a little more explicit in the past and among themselves–and all of the things that I now will quote have appeared in print. These are not Republican accusations. For example, they have voices that say “the cold war will end through acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism.” Another voice says that the profit motive has become outmoded, it must be replaced by the incentives of the welfare state; or our traditional system of individual freedom is incapable of solving the complex problems of the 20th century. Senator Fullbright has said at Stanford University that the Constitution is outmoded. He referred to the president as our moral teacher and our leader, and he said he is hobbled in his task by the restrictions in power imposed on him by this antiquated document. He must be freed so that he can do for us what he knows is best. And Senator Clark of Pennsylvania, another articulate spokesman, defines liberalism as “meeting the material needs of the masses through the full power of centralized government.” Well, I for one resent it when a representative of the people refers to you and me–the free man and woman of this country–as “the masses.” This is a term we haven’t applied to ourselves in America. But beyond that, “the full power of centralized government”–this was the very thing the Founding Fathers sought to minimize. They knew that governments don’t control things. A government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose…”

Daniel Hannan Speaking in Denver Colorado

Posted August 31st, 2009

This is Daniel Hannan, the British politician, and Member of The European Parliament (MEP), who represents South East England for the Conservative Party, speaking in Denver, Colorado, on Jun 8, 2009.

Anyone who knows me, and my political views, surely, by now, knows that I have great admiration for Daniel and his great political views, honesty and courage.

His below speech is very inspiring, as he talks of our  founding principles in The United States, and our founders.

He also talks about the current situation, politically, in England; and continues his pleas for us not to abandon our Constitution and founding principals. I could not agree more with him, and pray that our elected officials will also listen to his great wisdom.

The Normandy Invasion – Sixty Five Years To The Day

Posted June 6th, 2009

Today is sixty five years to the day since the allied forces stormed Normandy, France, liberating Europe from the absolute tyranny of Adolph Hitler and The Nazis.

It was The attack on Pearl Harbor that ultimately brought The United States into World War 2; however, if The United States did not enter that war, Europe, as we know it, could very well be dramatically different today.

We owe a great amount of  gratitude to those men and women, from all countries, that made these enormous sacrifices in World War 2, to defend the liberties that we still have today.

There is hardly any words that I can write to effectively describe their sacrifices, and the gratitude that I feel to that generation. However, our former President, Ronald Reagan, said it so eloquently, in this 40th anniversary speech to the veteran Rangers at Pointe Du Hoc, Normandy, France, on June 6th, 1984.

Please watch this great and emotional speech:

Daniel Hannan Hammers Prime Minister Gordon Brown On Government Spending In England

Posted March 26th, 2009

Daniel Hannan is a British politician, and Member of The European Parliament (MEP), who represents South East England for the Conservative Party, laid into Prime Minister Gordon Brown on his enormous amount of government spending during this economic downturn in England.

I think that his direct speech to the prime minister was absolutely brilliant. I believe that someone needs be as frank with our president, as their unbelievable spending in D.C., as of late, can very well put us on a similar path, if the spending brakes are not put on soon.

In my opinion, Daniel Hannan is an English patriot.
