In his address, Matacotta spoke on Lincoln and what he means to this country and about education. He warned the audience that the Republican Party has given up the school system of the United States to a group of elitists who used similar takeover tactics as the 20th century strongmen: Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler to hijack the education system. He ended calling on Republicans to take back the schools.
