Dream Summit Speakers Include


Also check out the agenda, here, complete with various tracks, so you can get exactly what you are most interested in!

Be sure to register here or if you live in North Carolina, check with the AFPNC group to see if they have space left on their buses and make sure they will be rolling from your area.

The NC bus information is here.  Please call the NC AFP to make sure it’s not too late at 919-839-1011.  Be sure to ask if they can get you a hotel room.

Riding the bus is the very best financial deal and you will have fun talking with your free market friends along the way.  New friends quickly become old friends by the end of the trip.

There are special activities for each state, too.

KCC will be there, as she has at every past Summit, blogging away, bringing it back to those who won’t be able to be there.  Trust us.  There is nothing like being there!   Plus, you’ll be back in time for election day as most of the NC buses only stay Friday night.

KCC is providing her own transportation, which includes a mixture of Amtrak and aircraft, so she can come and go the exact hours she needs to, without having to drive.  But, the bus is loads of fun, too, as your blogger can attest!  The NC AFP staffers take very good care of their passengers and make sure any special needs are taken care of.

If you have a twitter account, follow the hashtag #Dream11 to keep up with the latest and to add your thoughts, too.  People around the globe will be following you.  KCC tweets at so be sure to follow.   Remember, it’s @katys

More to come from Washington, beginning Thursday evening.  REMEMBER, THIS IS THE GROUP THAT OBAMA “WARNED” US ABOUT.
