The Fred Allen Lecture Series:

Fred Allen is a founder and owner of GeoSoils, a geotechnical consulting company in Southern California that just celebrated its 45th year in business. He is proud to employ hardworking individuals and help them provide for their families. Fred and his wife Lynda are deeply concerned about America’s future and sponsored this lecture series to share the ideas of freedom, the value of hard work, and the reality of American exceptionalism with young people.

A note from Fred Allen to all viewers:
"As you watch this lecture, it is my hope that you listen to Ben’s remarks with an open mind. I’m proud to sponsor this lecture because conservative principles have served me well in my life and business, and I hope you will absorb the principles Ben discusses and that they will help you become productive citizens, good neighbors, and patriotic Americans."
