    12/07/2017 Duração: 36min

    In this podcast episode, we feature President Jimmy Carter and his “Energy and the National Goals” speech. It is often called the “Crisis of Confidence” speech. A major priority of President Carter was the U.S. policy of energy consumption. The nation was suffering from rising oil costs due to OPEC which resulted in gas rationing, long gas lines, and energy shortages just to name a few. Before the formal part of this energy policy speech, President Carter explored reasons for lack of action by Congress with energy issues. He saw the threat as a “crisis of confidence” in our ability to forge a national priority to work together to deal with this and other issues. That section of the speech is why some call this the “Crisis of Confidence” speech. In addition to this audio recording, I also provide three PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech, second, a short overview of his personal and political life, and finally a summary of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act which was part of President’s C

    In this podcast episode, we provide a speech by Paul Harvey which is called “The pledge of America’s first citizens.” Mr. Harvey gave this speech annually about the price paid by many of the Founding Fathers for their involvement in the American Revolutionary War. As Mr. Harvey states, some people go to war since they have nothing to lose, in this case, the Founding Fathers had everything to lose since they were already men of influence, power, and wealth. They risked it all for the rest of the soon-to-be Americans and us as their descendants. Some lost it all in the process. On Independence Day, it is good to remember their sacrifices for us. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide three PDF documents: first, a copy of the Declaration of Independence, second, an article about the Founding Fathers, and finally the backstory about composing the Declaration of Independence.

    (S01-E26) HV President Eisenhower - "Farewell to the Nation" TV Speech - January 17, 1961

    19/06/2017 Duração: 21min

    The President’s speech is typical for many of the recent U.S. presidents. He began with a quick review of the past and especially the world wars the U.S. has been engaged and the role of the country as peacemaker to help build a better future. Then, he turns to the new challenges which are domestic rather than international. Eisenhower expresses his worry that the U.S. has embraced a permanent armaments industry with the export of weapons around the world. This was a radical change in the U.S. which previously only turned to building of weapons when the country faced immediate aggression. He introduces a new world to the U.S. vocabulary, “industrial-military complex”. Building weapons has become as important as building cars and appliances for the average American. Eisenhower worried that American universities seemed more interested in attracting huge government military contracts that engaged in scientific discovery. He also was concerned about Congress and how they were being influenced by the industrial-mi
