Liberty or Tyranny? 'A Time for Choosing'

On this date in 1964, the actor, Ronald Reagan, gave a televised campaign speech to America. I have posted this speech more than once on this blog and have a permanent link to it under Recommended Videos because it is one of the most important speeches we can hear today.

At the time of this speech, Reagan was campaigning for Arizona Senator, Barry Goldwater in hopes of Goldwater winning the presidency that year. Unfortunately, that did not happen but the conservative Reagan began his political rise that eventually saw him elected twice to the governorship of California (which he could never win today!) and thrust him into the White House for eight years.

Even though Reagan gave this speech recommending Goldwater, the passion and love he has for America is compelling and I believe it was this speech that made people take notice of him. One can also hear and feel the disdain he has for Socialism, Marxism, Communism, etc.

The events of today are eerily repeating the events Reagan spoke of in this speech. Please, take thirty minutes and watch because once again We the People must choose between liberty and tyranny.
