Just over 50 years ago, Ronald Reagan made the most powerful speech of his career — and arguably the most important speech of an American political figure in the 20th century. See video below.

As President Barack Obama moves America to a more statist worldview, with social programs like Obamacare, and has called for a reduced military posture, Reagan’s words have taken on new meaning and a new significance.

This video has gone viral across the web — and Newsmax TV is sharing it with you — it takes over just three minutes to watch!

Reagan delivered the televised address, also known simply as "The Speech," in Los Angeles on behalf of Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater on Oct. 7, 1964, a week before the election.

He stressed the virtues of small government, fiscal responsibility, individual freedom, American exceptionalism, and a strong resolve in facing the nation's enemies.

The speech "defined conservatism for 50 years," Reagan biographer Craig Shirley stated.

Shirley wrote for Newsmax: "Viewed 50 years later, that speech is even more compelling, certainly one of the greatest ever by a private U.S. citizen. Almost overnight, he was viewed as a national political figure."

Goldwater still lost the election by a wide margin. But soon after the speech, Reagan was asked to run for governor of California, setting the stage for his presidency, the rollback of the Soviet Union and the greatest economic boom the world has ever known.
