GOP women hosting author

March 3, 2014 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Thu, 03/13/2014 - 11:30am

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.
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 Spivack 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, Spivack takes well aimed shots at everything from “The Fed” to the teachers unions. “The Gorax” came out July 1, 2013.
Spivack lives in Massachusetts with his wife and three of their six children.
The meeting is open to the public. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. at a cost of $15 and will be held at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center on Texas Street. Reservations can be made by calling Sonja Davis at 817-443-3870, or by email at sonjad@mpatexas.net.
