Here are two links to a speech I gave to the San Antonio Tea Party in A.D. 2009. This speech offers a good summary of my opinions and argument concerning the significance of the “Declaration of Independence”. The first segment is about 10 minutes; the second is about 7 minutes.
It’s one of my better speeches. In fact, I hadn’t seen the video in 18 months or more. I’d forgotten it. But on seeing it again I was surprised and I had to admit: Dayahm! That guy is gooood!
No notes. Not even a teleprompter. Doin’ it “old school”. Speaking exclusively from the heart and mind. Pretty good.
Once I got a little ways into that speech, I found myself cheering with the crowd–for me. Maybe my egotism and vanity know no limits, or maybe it really is a pretty good speech.
Given that the 4th of July is only about seven weeks away, it might be a good idea for you folks to use these videos to “brush up” on what we’re really celebrating on the 4th: our God-given, unalienable Rights.
The original document may be somewhat faded, but the ideas it contains are as brilliant as ever.
