Join Governor Gary Johnson, April 11-13, 2013, in Salt Lake City, Utah, for a Liberty Strategy Conference.
$6 Billion. That’s how much was spent in the political campaigns of 2012. Yet, at the end of the day — and all that spending, America essentially reelected a status quo that is satisfactory to almost no one.
How can that happen?
One answer is that the vast majority of voters probably would characterize their votes as being for the lesser of two evils, rather than FOR a candidate or party who actually reflects their views.
Governor Gary Johnson, Honorary Chairman of the Our America Initiative, frequently shares his belief that most Americans actually fall in the category of “fiscally conservative and socially accepting”. In short, they believe in liberty. However, they have yet to identify that belief with a viable, robust and effective political “movement”.
April 11-13, Governor Johnson and the Our America Initiative are hosting a strategy conference in Salt Lake City to talk about what needs to be done to mobilize millions of Americans into an effective force for the principles of small government, greater economic freedom and individual liberty.
This strategy session will bring together leaders of the liberty movement, representatives of various free market, libertarian-oriented organizations, and recognized political and policy professionals for a frank discussion of strategies, tactics, and priorities for making our principles a part of the national dialogue that cannot be ignored.
Attracting and training activists, refining the liberty message, funding, organization…all of these topics and more will be on the table, and the conference is intended to be a real working session among leaders who can make things happen.
Details and the agenda for this important gathering are below.
We hope to see you in Salt Lake April 11-13th.
