I am blogging to you from AFP's "Defending the American Dream Conference" in Washington D C. Great speakers and breakout sessions today. This morning we heard from, among others, Dick Morris, author and Fox News Contributer and Herman Cain, radio host and commentator.
Before and after the speakers were breakout sessions covering everything from soup to nuts. Six sessions with four choices to choose from in each session. Things like economics, media, repealing Obamacare, free speech, global warming, and on and on.
During the "Tribute to Ronald Reagan Dinner", we heard from, among others, George Will conservative columnist and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
I also got to see old friends who have moved on and out of Michigan. All and all a good event with over 2500 people attending.
Tomorrow is the "Restoring Honor Rally" at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial which was called by Glen Beck of Fox News. It should be interesting.
The WCTA was organized in March of 1982 because of a deep concern over rapidly escalating and unjust property tax assessments. We are a non-profit, non-partisan volunteer taxpayer organization dedicated to obtaining fiscal integrity and responsibility from all levels of government.
In July of 1982, we incorporated with the State of Michigan and proceeded to build our membership. We have resolved that our elected officials should be more accountable to their constituents for their actions.
We believe that individuals can be effective but that together we can be even more effective. We hold regular membership meetings and also sponsor special and educational meetings on topics of interest to our members and the general community.
Only through a vigilant watch of the government can taxpayers ensure that our government is operating responsibly and efficiently.
Information is a very important ingredient of the WCTA. Our newsletter is sent to all members and we try to keep them apprised of existing and pending legislation that will directly affect their lives.
