Advice Wanted for Class Speech on H.R. 1207Submitted by case1 on Thu, 04/16/2009 - 19:40
I have to give a persuasive speech on a question of policy.
I need to address 3 things
~Need- There is a problem (What is that problem?)
~Plan- A solution to the plan (H.R. 1207)
~Practicality- Can the problem be fixed (Yes?)
Things I am looking for advice:
~Specific scholarly sources I could cite. Austrian Economists of course but anything in particular? Journals, books, articles?
~A visual aid. Something that would make my audience go, "oh wow, this is a problem."
~Anything that might spike the interest in the audience. These aren't people that I would say are particularly enlightened. I need to show them why action needs to be taken. I need them to care and take interest.
I thought this would be a good opportunity to try and inform a few people. If the speech turns out good, I will consider entering a speech contest my school is hosting.
If anyone knows Dr. Paul's Bill well and would like to offer some advice it would be greatly appreciated.
My previous speeches were on:
The Great Depression and how government intervention didn't solve anything.
Global Warming and the fact that there is still debate.
And Peter Schiff predicting the housing bubble by understanding Austrian Economics.
For some reason I haven't been getting good grades even though I'm an A-B student. Very frustrating. I really want to hit this one out of the park!
