I'd like to invite you to the Practical Federalism Forum on Saturday May 16th in Des Moines, Iowa. This is an exciting event sponsored by American Principles Project, CaffeinatedThoughts.com, and the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition. You won't want to miss this important event!
Conservative leaders and political activists from Iowa and across the nation will come together to discuss how federal government overreach works, how the Framers believed that state elected officials must guard against federal intrusion, and how the federal government undermines that duty.
Specific issues will include how the federal government controls education policy-making, how it drives the states to engage in massive data collection on families and students, and how it has a stranglehold on vast land (and by this we mean land other than national parks, national monuments, congressionally designated wilderness areas, etc.) and resources that it should have long ago turned over to the states and to the people. We will discuss how it finances these efforts by de-valuing the dollar and hurts families and retired people in the process. And we will discuss solutions.
WHAT: American Principles Project's 2nd "Practical Federalism Forum"
WHERE: Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center, 730 3rd St., Des Moines, IA (across the street from Wells Fargo Arena)
WHEN: Saturday, May 16th 9:00am-3:00pm
Speakers confirmed include Phyllis Schlafly of Eagle Forum, Utah State Rep. Ken Ivory, Erin Tuttle of Hoosiers Against Common Core, Shane Vander Hart of CaffeinatedThoughts.com, Jan Mickelson of WHO News Radio 1090, Emmett McGroarty of American Principles Project, and more.
All the GOP presidential candidates have been invited to the forum, as well as many other leaders from across the country. Also, it is worth noting that the Iowa GOP will be hosting their Lincoln Day Dinner at the same venue that evening.
Register here today! Hope to see you there.
