That’s known as “The Speech”. It launched Reagan’s political career. Some influential Republicans approached Reagan after hearing The Speech and proposed he run for Governor of California in 1966.

I've heard of "The Speech," but I've never heard the actual Speech.

It was really remarkable. Churchillian. At times it was down to earth, a comment on current events or a call to action on behalf of Barry Goldwater. Then it would soar off, with Mr. Reagan giving an eloquant and passionate defense of the very foundations of the West, frequently tying in religion and an awareness of the Almighty. So that was The Speech. I'm glad I was able to hear it, or most of it anyway. I missed Mark Levin's introduction and the first few minutes.
