Americans for Prosperity and the I Spy on Salem Radio Show will be co-hosting the first Basic American Rights Series on Thursday, Sept. 22, from 5:30 to 9:00pm at the Portland Airport Shilo Inn. It will also be broadcast live around the state to: Shilo Inns in Seaside, Springfield, and Klamath Falls; the China Gorge Restaurant in Hood River; and the Salem Public Library.
This first in the series will focus on property rights, which are fundamental to the American Dream, and will draw attention to how our property rights are being eroded—by legislation, regulation, and even through the more extreme elements of environmentalism.
The town-hall style event will feature three very informative property rights experts, who will each address a different problem area and what can be done to prevent the loss of one of our most essential American rights. There will also be Q&A afterward.
Tom DeWeese, a national speaker on property rights and the UN’s Agenda 21, will discuss private property rights, local implementation of Agenda 21, and how cloaking restrictions in “sustainability” impacts our rights.
Karen Budd-Falen, a land-rights attorney from Wyoming, will discuss how the Endangered Species Act has been misused and methods environmental extremists use to fund themselves at taxpayer expense—such as Debt-for-Nature swaps. Finally, Jim Huffman will bring the evening around to Oregon and will speak about our private property rights, why they’re so important, and why our Founding Fathers fought for them.
The cost is $10 to cover expenses. Due to limited seating, guests are encouraged to pre-register by going to americansforprosperity.org/Oregon or ispyonsalem.com. There will be a social hour/mixer from 5:30 to 6:30 and the main event will begin at 6:30. For more information, contact email@example.com.
