Since there will be no Tammy Radio today as a result my flying to Des Moines for the Tea Party rally, I thought I’d bring this speech of mine to your attention and hope you enjoy it. It’s a 2004 speech at FSU at Tallahassee. Of all the lectures and presentations I’ve given I am particularly proud of this one, and am honored to say it’s a favorite of Tammy readers and listeners as well.
I was invited by FSU to speak about how conservative ideals benefit women, blacks, gays and all minorities. The room has about 200 people in it, and you’ll see the rather lukewarm reception I received at the beginning. The room was, I must say, a bit hostile but I was thrilled to see that as the speech proceeded many seemed to be coming around. After the presentation there’s a question and answer section which brings up a surprise confrontation (which you’ll enjoy, I certainly did 🙂 and at the end the attendees, mostly Political Science students, gave the experience a standing ovation.
Even though this is from 2004 (7 years ago!) you’ll find that everything I discuss remains relevant today. I mention this so you know it’s worthwhile to you now, but also an example that what we work on today will also be relevant years from now. Working on core issues, as we are, means the experience and success will last for generations. This video runs for about 2 hours. Have a wonderful Friday and I’ll check in from Des Moines as soon as I can.
