I've been impressed with Newt Gingrich basically since C-SPAN broadcast his college course right after he first became Speaker of the House (I wish I could say I was equally impressed by his tenure there).
He has created an organisation called American Solutions (http://www.americansolutions.com/) in an effort to educate Americans about how to correct our national deficiencies. The initial six hour presentation is available on-line here:
and can be tackled all in one go or in five pod casts and a .pdf file of the included slides and graphs.
Needless to say, more to follow as I digest his presentation.
Initial impression: "If something is really stupid, let's quit doing it."
