Parker County Republican Women will have as their guest speaker March 13 Loren Spivack.
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, Spivack worked for several non-profits and as a management consultant for profit and non-profit companies.
Spivack 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 2009 for selling material critical of the Obama administration. Mall owners, Simon Property Group, are major Democratic donors. Since then Spivack has devoted his time to teaching conservative groups about free market economics. He conducts "Economic Literacy" seminars across the United States. Spivack has delivered his famous seminar on “Economic Literacy” to more than 200 groups in 20 states.
Spivack is also the author of “The New Democra,t” 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 the times into cartoon characters in a conservative morality play.
