It’s been quite a busy season in politics recently. Canada recently had an election, and the United States are about to have one next week. Although it is very easy to be cynical about politics for obvious reasons, I tend to focus on the silver lining, which is motivating speeches that can move an entire nation. Politicians are extremely skilled in the art of motivation and pulling at the emotions of their audience. I wanted to take this opportunity to give you my top 10 political speeches of the past century:
Martin Luther King, Jr. – I Have A Dream
John F. Kennedy – Inaugural Address
Franklin D. Roosevelt – 1st Inaugual Address
Malcolm X – The Ballot or The Bullet
Franklin D. Roosevelt – Pearl Harbor Address
Richard M. Nixon – Checkers
Ronald W. Reagan – Challenger Disaster Address
Martin Luther King, Jr. – I’ve Been To The Mountaintop
Dwight D. Eisenhower – Farewell Address
John F. Kennedy – Ich Bin Ein Berliner
