About the Event
Guest Speaker Loren Spivack
“The Free Market Warrior” was born and raised in Massachusetts and spent most of his adult life in New York City. Before becoming active in politics, he worked for several non-profits and as a management consultant for both profit and non-profit companies. He founded “Free Market Warrior” in 2009 in an effort to make a positive difference in American politics and economics.
His “Free Market Warrior” store was expelled from Concord Mills Mall in North Carolina in July of 2009 for selling material critical of the Obama Administration. (Mall owners, Simon Property Group, are major Democratic donors.) Since then, Loren has devoted his time to teaching conservative groups about free market economics. He conducts "Economic Literacy" seminars across the United States. So far, he has delivered his famous seminar on “Economic Literacy” to over 200 groups in 20 states.
Mr. Spivack is also the author of “The New Democrat” a parody history of the Obama administration, based on a famous children's book. With pitch-perfect rhyme and clever illustrations, "The New Democrat” transforms the political personalities of our times into cartoon characters in a conservative morality play. Spivack’s second book “The Gorax” is an anti-environmentalism/pro capitalism parody starring Al Gore and presenting his movement as a threat to American freedom and standard of living. Once again, he is both funny and poignant as he makes the case that capitalism (represented by the “Onepercentler”) is the real victim of environmental extremists who destroy prosperity without achieving even their own goals. Along the way, he takes well aimed shots at everything from “The Fed” to the teachers’ unions. “The Gorax” came out on July 1, 2013.
