Former U.S. Rep. Bob McEwen stresses importance of America’s founding principles
November 01, 2012 | By Bethany Pico/Liberty University News Service
Former Congressman Bob McEwen returned to Liberty University on Wednesday to deliver the Convocation message about how to measure the greatness of a nation.
McEwen served as a representative for Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives for six terms. While in office, he and U.S. Sen. Robert Dole participated as observers in Warsaw, Poland, to the first-ever parliamentary election of a non-Communist leader of a Soviet bloc country, which led to the destruction of the Berlin Wall. He is currently the senior advisor with a nationally recognized law firm.
“(McEwen) is a public speaker like none other,” Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. said as he introduced McEwen Wednesday. “He does better at communicating the founding principles of what this country is all about better than anyone I know.”
McEwen crafted his message based on historical analysis and principles of America, drawing from nearly every era in American history. He applied the lessons from the past to demonstrate the standards by which we should measure the greatness of our nation: the strength of its economy, military, politics, and leadership.
