David L. Buckner did the presentation on "Hope".
David L. Buckner is the President of Bottom Line Training and Consulting Inc., a consulting and training firm specializing in executive management development and business acumen training with a consultative focus on cultural integration, change management, and strategic efficiency modeling.
A keynote speaker, an in-demand economic analyst for several television networks, as well as a an Adjunct Faculty member at Columbia University, David is based in New York City.
(You may remember Mr. Buckner as the man who fainted on the Glenn Beck TV Show. Hate to mention it, but that may help people remember who he is.)
Mr. Buckner's presentation centered around the economics. He offered several view graphs with some very disturbing information. Here are 2 of them:
Mr. Buckner did a text poll of the audience and asked our thoughts on the country's economic future.
9% - Optimisitic
80% - Pessimistic
11% - Unsure
He showed this video. (Ignore the advertisement at the end.) The video speaks for itself. What we are being told is to "Stop"..."Do Not Think".
Mr. Buckner listed the 5 Financial Fallacies:
1. It's never happened before.
2. It's always been done this way.
3. Everyone else is doing it.
4. The experts say..."Why would you question them."
5. Trust us..."We will take care of you."
This is HOPE:
Hope: It all begins here.
Ownership: Take control of the process.
Prepare: Avoid the 5 financial fallacies (above).
Education & Engagement: From knowledge... to Action.
One view graph included these words:
"We must never despair; our situation has been compromising before; so I trust it will again. If difficulties arise; we must put forth new exertion and proportion our efforts to the exigencies of the times."
Below is an article from the "American Revival" Binder. The article is entitled, "The Progressive Assault on the American Constitution" and it was written by Ronald J. Pestritto, Ph.D. Enjoy it and pass it on.

The next "American Revival" will be held in Phoenix, AZ on April 10, 2010. If you are able, I would highly recommend attending this event. The speakers are knowledgeable and the presentations are entertaining while teaching you things you probably never knew. Click here for more information.
