I registered for Ron Pauls appearance in DC today!


First time poster. I just wanted to get the word out that I registered today for the

Americans for Prosperity Foundation's

Defending the American Dream Summit


in Washington D.C. at the Mayflower. The agenda has been pasted below. But it appears that Dr. Paul is going to be appearing sometime between the hours of 8 and 12 on Friday, October 5th.

The formatting is poor, my apologies, it's the best I could do with the .pdf
