BABKA IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
Jim Babka has been invited back to speak to the Free State Project at their Second Liberty Forum -- Thursday January 3 to Sunday January 6, 2008 in Nashua, New Hampshire. Jim was the only "main ballroom speaker" from last year to be invited back this year. He's proud of that. "They liked me; they really liked me," said our gleeful President.
His presentation will be, "How you can Downsize DC." Jim will explain how you can overcome all the hurdles and barriers to make your belief in smaller government the winning side in the national debate.
"Last year, I spoke to a packed house. The event was very well-attended. The people were positive. Boy, there are so many good things I could say about it," said Babka. "Sue and I are really looking forward to returning."
Senator John Sununu will speak at the banquet dinner on Saturday night. He'll be joined by a wide range of other speakers, including . . .
* Carla Howell, the co-chair of the Massachusetts Initiative to End the (statewide) Income Tax.
* Ethan Nadelmann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance
* Bernard von NotHaus, creator of the Liberty Dollar
* ...and many more
And Jim also expects Ian and Mark of the nationally syndicated radio show "Free Talk Live" to be set up, doing their broadcasts direct from the site.
On top of that, Jim and his wife Sue (two Babkas!) expect to do another installment of "Breakfast with the Babkas." We'll have more to say about that in a future Dispatch.
