Shane Krauser recently spoke on an Arizona college campus at an open forum sponsored by the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). During the course of this presentation, Shane highlighted three questions that every person must answer before adopting their political philosophy. This was powerful, engaging, and fun! Listen in:
In July 2012, I had the distinct honor and privilege to be invited by Glenn Beck to be a part of the Restoring Love event in Arlington, Texas. This attracted tens of thousands of people from all over the world, and it was certainly one of the highlights of my life. These videos capture just one of the many talks I gave during that monumental week. Enjoy!
What is the most important battle going on in America and the world? As an intense as it might be, many might conclude that the political battle is of utmost importance. While tempers rage in the political arena, the cultural battle is quietly taking place. It’s always been this way. When all is said and done, politics is just a reflection of the outcome of the cultural battle.
Change the the hearts and minds of the people first and changes within government will follow. It will not happen the other way around, insofar as we are talking about liberty and prosperity. Here are some of my thoughts:
Memorial Day is a special day. Thank you to all those who have served. Here is my small tribute:
America has a courage problem! And every year on Memorial Day, we have a chance to really focus on the uniqueness of America, to rediscover the courage of those who wear and have worn the uniform. Today we remember those who have given everything.
Going back to World War I, we remember the battle at Belleau Wood when the Germans attacked and the French began to retreat. The Americans arrived and were ready to fight. And in the words of Captain Lloyd Williams, “Retreat? Hell, we just got here.”
During World War II, the Japanese told us that he would Iwo Jima would last for a thousand years. We raised the flag in three days.
During Vietnam at the Battle of Khe Sahn, 500 American soldiers stood on a hill and said, “You will not take this.” We were outnumbered 30 to 1, and the North Vietnamese forces attacked for 77 days until they finally said to the unrelenting Americans, “You can have it.”
In 2003, we toppled a dictator in Iraq in Firdos Square, and many would have the opportunity to experience freedom for the first time in their lives. I realized I had never gone a day without freedom, and today I am thankful for those who have stood in uniform to make that a reality.
During that same time, a great patriot would suffer a mortal wound in a conflict with the enemy. As he lay dying and the medics tried to save him, he made it clear that this is what he wanted – to fight for liberty alongside his brothers.
This attitude is why we are unique. America has a long history of experiencing adversity and testing our commitment and courage. Time and time again, we have passed the test.
Our troops are simply exceptional going all the way back to our troops who were led by George Washington. On Christmas Day 1776, they prepared to engage against the enemy. What is often not said is that of those 2500 troops, one-third had no shoes.
This is the tradition of those who wear the uniform – relentless sacrifice for something bigger than themselves. It was Samuel Adams who said if we refuse to suffer tamelessly an attack on our liberty, we encourage it.
To our military men and women who serve and to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, thank you for your unwillingness to stand tamelessly when freedom was in jeopardy. Thank you for standing in tough places in defense of America.
I recently brought Rob Robson into the studio to join me on my show, Liberty Storm with Shane Krauser. We talked about some of the most serious issues of our day. Rob is a Policy Council Member of Life Leadership and a serial entrepreneur. This show will blow you away as we hit on the following issues:
1. Money Matrix: What is it that the elites do to control the money supply and why?
2. Media Matrix: Those who control the money control the narrative. What is the method to their madness?
3. Mandatory Education: Government runs our education system. What does that mean for a society that wishes to call itself free?
4. Military Matrix: If you are in control of the money, you need to control the means of force. What does that mean today?
