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 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 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 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…

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Anchor Rising’s own Andrew Morse for his attendance during last night’s session at Brown and thank the members of the public who took the time to get involved, either in-person or at home through the wonders of the web.
I’ll also second Bill’s comment and would like to publicly thank Sean Quigley, at Brown, who facilitated the Thursday night event. Additionally, I should formally recognize (and “pre-thank”..?) Ryan Bilodeau, who is hosting at URI, and Sarah Highland, who is heading up PC’s efforts. The motto at Solutions is “Real change requires real change”, but change is dependant on younger generations who are committed enough to work for it. Thank you Sean, Ryan, and Sarah.
Finally, if you haven’t done so yet, go to http://www.americansolutions.com, sign up, and attend one or more of the workshop sessions in Providence or Kingston on Saturday. All political persuasions are welcome and no one will be disappointed. Transparent dialogue is good.
