This three video series lasting approximately 30 minutes is worth the watch. Speaking to a church congregation, Ann Coulter entertains with her typically cutting wit. Beyond that, however, she speaks to essentially every pressing issue of the moment and the political forces at work.
In some ways Coulter’s wit is cutting because she is one of the few Americans who will address subjects others refuse to touch. In addition to pointing out the many flaws of leftist ideology and the politicians who push to see it become public policy, Coulter also highlights some truths about the costs of health care few others mention, how the country is on the verge of economic disaster in large measure because the American people pressure government to spend, spend, spend while at the same time expecting that taxes will be kept low.
And most importantly for those interested in how to win the battle over which way the country is going to go; will it be the oppressive socialist welfare state or the free market, self-reliant, and independent America envisioned 230+ years ago? Coulter makes the point that addressing fiscal issues alone will not result in victory. (If that is your key area of interest and you don’t want to watch all three videos, Coulter speaks on this topic mostly in the second video.)
Shelli Dawdy is first and foremost the mother of three children whom she has taught at home via the classical method since removing her children from school in 2001. During her early years as a homeschool mother, she worked part-time as a freelance writer. Born and raised in the Iowa, Shelli and her husband moved to the state of South Dakota in 1997, attracted to its more limited government and friendly tax environment. In 2006, Shelli and her family relocated to Lincoln, Nebraska, when her husband’s employer offered a new position. She took a break from work and politics for a time, recognizing the need to focus solely on her childrens’ schooling with two now of high school age. Distressed by many things she was witnessing on the national political scene and disillusioned about the Republican Party, she decided to start writing again, this time online. Motivated to get involved with others at the grassroots level, she networked with activists on the social media tool, Twitter. She was involved in organizing the first tea party rallies inspired by Rick Santelli’s “rant” on CNBC in February 2009. Recognizing that activism should generate on the local level, she founded Grassroots in Nebraska in March of 2009. The group’s mission is a return to Constitutional, limited government, according to its original meaning. While the group has held several tea party rallies, it’s focus is to take effective action. Among its many projects, GiN successfully coordinated testimony for the hearing of the Nebraska Sovereignty Resolution, networked with other groups to ensure a large show of public support at the hearing, and coordinated follow up support to ensure its passage in April 2010. While working to build up GiN throughout 2009, she was asked to work as writer and producer of the documentary film, A New America, which lays out how Progressivism is responsible for how America has moved away from its Constitutional roots.
