American Solutions Day in Rhode Island
Newt Gingrich’s American Solutions for Winning the Future organization will be holding a number of events in Rhode Island this Thursday and Saturday. Here’s the welcoming statement from the organization’s website…
We recently launched American Solutions for Winning the Future, a unique non-partisan organization designed to rise above traditional gridlocked partisanship, to provide real, significant solutions to the most important issues facing our country.The events will be nationally-networked, with participants at the local sites linked to a series of speakers discussing topics ranging from “Green Conservatism & Biodiversity” to how “Defending America Requires Fixing our Intelligence System” (presented by a former CIA director) to “Rediscovering God in America”. A full list of the topics is available here.
The breakthrough impact of this organization is driven by its powerful approach:
- Broad scale engagement of elected officials and candidates of both parties at all levels of government, interested citizens, private sectors leaders, reporters, scholars and students.
- Development of big, real, breakthrough solutions to the most important issues facing this country – education, energy, more effective homeland and national security, a new model of retirement savings, a renewed sense of American civilization and citizenship, creating efficient, information age government and more.
- A process to educate, ignite collaboration and implement these solutions across all levels of government with widespread support from citizens.
The Thursday event will include a webcast by former Speaker Gingrich and will be hosted locally by former RI Congressional Candidate Jon Scott, who has never failed to give an engaging presentation any time I’ve seen him appear before an audience…
