AEI - Events - The Obama Challenge - What Is the Right Change to Help All Americans Pursue Happiness and Create Prosperity?

Here's a video worth watching:,filter.all,type.past/event_detail.asp (click on "Video" on the upper right hand side of the page).

Newt Gingrich talks about the right changes required to turn around this country and best equip Americans to pursue happiness and create prosperity.

This is probably the best quote in the whole speech:

"You don't have a community that creates wealth that ends up prosperous and safe and gives kids a better future if everyone is taught to stand around demanding that somebody else pay for everything. And this is a core challenge. Should this be a country in which every person learns to work, every person learns to save, every person learns to have a better future, and, by the way, is therefore responsible for working, saving, and creating a better future? Or is this a country where you shouldn't have to do all those things because it's too hard, and someone should take care of you? In which case, the question becomes: who's the someone, and why do you think they'll stay here? It's a fundamental question..."
