POWERFUL Closing Statements Needed.Submitted by Jefferson2 on Mon, 05/23/2011 - 18:17
I don't mean to clutter up the active forums with another topic, but I feel this is important enough to make a separate thread.
One properly delivered closing statement at the end of a debate, could bring the house down with wild applause.
Not only that, it could also generate headlines the next day, with much needed coverage of the message we are trying to convey.
It has to be delivered in 60 seconds or less.
It must be concise, hard hitting, and most importantly....Inspirational.
Here is a rough draft of one I put together this morning. It is not perfect, and needs some tweaks, but is a decent start. (My English es no so good)
America, is at one of the most CRUCIAL junctures in her history.
We face a SIMILAR challenge that was OVERCOME by our forefathers.
The vicious stranglehold of taxation without representation, INTRUSIVE unresponsive government, and a Federal Reserve that is DESTROYING our currency, is CHOKING THE LIFE out of this nation, and its great people.
Our bridges and roads are CRUMBLING, our SCHOOLS failing, and tent cities are becoming a REALITY, as more Americans lose their jobs and homes.
Elected officials who swore an oath to UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION, have decided to collude with the central banks, and special interests instead.
Last election, Americans voted for hope, change, and transparency, but got MORE OF THE SAME EMPTY PROMISES.
America.... we are standing on the EDGE of the cliff. If we do not put an END to the corruption and scandalous behavior by those who were put in a position of trust, then we may NEVER recognize our country again.
There is a REVOLUTION brewing. And a growing number of Americans from ALL WALKS OF LIFE, have asked ME to help LEAD this revolution.
I am asking you TONIGHT, to JOIN US in this FIGHT, to RESTORE...AMERICA... NOW!!
