October 28, 1964: Ronald Reagan Gives "The Speech"

Forty-five years ago tonight, a call was sounded that lives on and is as true today as it was then. More so. Ronald Reagan: Great president. Better prophet? Here is what is simply known as The Speech in its entirety (29:33). Enjoy.

The Great One gives the Great One. Perhaps the most memorable political speech in modern American history, it launched the career of America's greatest modern president on values and policies that resonate now more than then because they are the enduring principles of a constitutional, limited, God fearing government . . . the simple principles upon which the country was founded.
