Newt's Speech At New York Tea Party

I must confess, there was a time about 18 years ago I would have vomitted at the thought of following Newt. I was very much on the left. But after my experiences in college, with some professors and how they treated me when I did not agree with their conclusions, I started to open my eyes and ears. I started to listen to the facts from those on the right side of the aisle. They never shouted me down. We may still disagree on some issues such as the right to an abortion and gay rights. But we do not shout each other down. Respect. And today I find myself respecting the knowledge that Newt has to offer us as UNITED CITIZENS of the United States of America.

I met Newt a few years ago. He is a really nice guy.
