Paul Harvey’s “If I Were The Devil” Speech In 1965 Is Spot On Today

In the past few days, If I Were the Devil: Paul Harvey (Warning for a Nation) has gone viral.  If you have not heard it, or haven’t heard it for awhile… please listen to the whole thing.  Harvey recorded this in 1965… sounding like he was looking at 2012.

Paul Harvey’s “If I Were The Devil, Our Father Who Art In Washington” speech in 1965 is spot on in 2012. Paul Harvey Aurandt, better known to the world as Paul Harvey, penned the article in 1964. The following audio presented below in his own words is from 1965.

Paul Harvey was the BEST. No one on the radio was or is as good as Paul Harvey was. He could deliver a story on radio better than anyone could with pictures and media. Harvey made you think. He made you see. He made you feel. But, most importantly, he made you believe!

At a radio seminar several years before his death in 2009, Harvey walked into the room and immediately commanded everyone’s attention.  He received a standing ovation before he even uttered a word.

Harvey was a genius at his craft. He delivered daily broadcasts for ABC Radio Networks and captured us all with The Rest of the Story. His listening audience topped 24-million people per week at the peak of his career. And that doesn’t even begin to take into account the people who read his newspaper column or took any opportunity to hear him speak live.

Although the following audio is from 1965, you would think he recorded it yesterday. That’s how brilliant he was… and his words are a testament as to how low we have sunk. “Good Day”!
