We the People....

Tonight we went to see the Glenn Beck Unelectable Tour. It was hilarious, and even, dare I say, at times, spiritual. I know, I know. You're thinking that it's impossible to have political and spiritual stuff together, right? Well, our country got it's start that way and it should be that way right now. We should never forget that our Father in Heaven gave us this amazing country. Glenn also spoke of how we should teach our children our country's history - and that they should be proud of it and humbled by it. There were even moments towards the end that it seemed more like he was bearing his testimony - he is LDS.

If you don't really know about him, he is on KNRS 570 AM radio from 4:00pm until 7pm and is a real hoot.

How I wish we could have a presidential nominee speak like this guy! He gave his "Presidential Campaign Speech" and he is amazing. He is honest, uses common sense, tells it like it is, and is super funny! He feels just like I do, that the power comes from and by the people, not from Washington DC.
How I wish that everyone could have been to this! It was fun to have clapping and cheering in a movie theater. It was a sold out audience as well.
You know when you are waiting for your show to start at the theater and they have those questions to entertain you up on the screen? One of the funniest was:
Question: What is the difference between these two pictures?

Any guesses?

Answer: Nothing.

At the closing of his show, he recited a few great quotes by Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and others, but ended with this: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes,and our Sacred Honor."

Not a dry eye in the house, folks.

Yeah, those little "preview" things were pretty funny. My favorite one was one of the "Word Scramble" puzzles they put up on the screen:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

(That actually wasn't scrambled at all... this is the President of Turkmenistan)

I LOVE Glenn Beck. I'm so jealous that you got to see that. I heard they were doing that AFTER it happened, of course. It's impossible to see him in anything cuz it always sells out. How did you hear about it?

Last Sunday, KBYU had him on giving a speech from the Marriott Center...I think it was called America's Freedom Festival...or something like that. He talked about the Founding Fathers and all the great things about America. It was truly awesome! The best speech he's ever given.
