Post a speech every round, that's it, audio, slideshow, any thing speech related. The one I post right now is a good example of this:
Lordknukle

Con

Accepted.

My first speech is about the true story of a King of England overcoming the adversity of public speaking. This is the final scene in the movie, in which he gives a motivating speech to England while persevering through his fears.

Knukle, you and I probably both have this bookmarked :P:

I don't expect any of you to actually watch the full clip, but watch a few minutes to get the idea:

Gettysburg address, the best speech in US history (remake of course)
Lordknukle

Con

Good speech but kinds defeats the meaning without Lincoln.

Mine is John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address



In case you want to see his famous quote, skip to 3:35.

"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country".

Kind of different from our generation of self-deserving people.

I wanted that one, but it wasn't a real speech, it was a comedy. But anyway here's mine:



This speech helped unify our country to fight WW2, VOTE FOR ME!

Thank you for the debate, and thank the readers

I'll take an unconventional approach here.



Andrew Ryan speaking out against Altruism.

I wish I had seen this during the voting period. Very interesting. I'd like to see another or a variation on it. How about Best Award Show Speeches?
