In my new capacity as President of the Center of the American Experiment, I have instituted a program of quarterly lunch events. The theme of the programs this year–and maybe for years to come–is how liberal policies hurt the middle class, low wage earners and minorities. Our first event will be on February 18, at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. Our speaker will be Jason Riley of the Wall Street Journal, author of Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed.
It should be a great event. This is the front of the invitation that we are mailing on Monday:
You, of course, are invited, although the invitation is probably only practical if you live within driving distance of the Twin Cities. Tickets are only $25 ($30 at the door). If you can make it and want a ticket or tickets, call Samantha Peterson at (612) 584-4559, or email her at [email protected] I think it will be a fun and informative event.
We haven’t yet planned the remaining quarterly lunches for 2016, but I am interested in a program on how Dodd-Frank has hurt small businesses.
I have only been on the job for two weeks, but I am planning an aggressive strategy to transform Minnesota’s political and intellectual culture. Please feel free to hit the donate button on our web site if you want to lend a hand. One of our key messages is that Minnesota’s economy–contrary to the claims of Barack Obama, Al Franken and other left-wingers!–isn’t doing very well. Why? Because we are a blue state. I am determined to change that. This video is an opening salvo in a long campaign:
If you like the video, please share it with your friends via email or text, especially if they live in Minnesota. And stay tuned for much more from me and the Center.
