Senator Marco Rubio is a fantastic speaker. His most recent speech at the Regan Foundation from last week is a great example of the Performance of Politics. It lasts about 20 minutes and is followed by questions. (His speech begins at about the 6:50 mark.) I do not think I have heard a better advocate for the principles of Conservatism since Ronald Reagan. His speech is optimistic and inspiring and a call for the restoration of American values in our lives and in our government. If you find yourself inspired after listening to it, please make sure to share it with others, so they can hear his message as well.
Glenn Beck is perhaps the greatest single example right now of an individual who engages in the Performance of Politics. Here he is in Israel today at the foot of the Temple Mount for his Restoring Courage event. Glenn would object to this event being called political, but due to the policies of the Obama Administration standing with Israel is a Political Act. Speaking Truth to Power is a Political Act. We must be willing to perform our politics in meaningful ways both in our personal lives and in civil society. That is the only way we can be victorious.
The latest from Krista Branch, in support of Israel. She is a fantastic example of the Performance of Politics. She is a fantastic artist and places her politics front and center in her art. The left has done this for years as a part of their politics. It is good to see conservatives who excel at this as well. Krista is definitely one of those.
