The story of Lawrence Spivak has been all over the news recently. He is a small businessman selling conservative and anti-Obama merchandise in a mall in North Carolina. When another mall employee complained that he was selling items critical of Obama, his lease was terminated.

This story has turned out to be a tremendous metaphor for the current struggle against Statism. I personally watched Lawrence on the Glenn Beck show as they examined the political affiliations of the Simon conglomerate.

Caleb surprised us by bringing him to Atlanta and setting him up with a booth to sell his bumperstickers. He did a brisk business, and I picked up 5 of them myself. This is a short video of some of his remarks to the gathering, along with rare video of the great Caleb himself. – Lawrence Spivak from David Thompson on Vimeo.
