federalism-poster-smallerPractical Federalism: How the Federal Government Is Silencing the People will be held on Saturday, November 22, 2014 at Southern New Hampshire University in Hooksett, NH.  A live stream of the forum will be from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm CST. This forum is sponsored by American Principles Project, Breitbart News, and Cornerstone Action.

The objective of this forum is to shine a light on how the federal government overreach works, the Framers’ view that state elected officials must guard against federal intrusion, and how the federal government undermines that duty. The aim to make this a central issue in the public square through this event.

During this forum, we will raise the consciousness of the state’s legislators, activists, and Republican base, so that they demand that the potential 2016 presidential contenders address what they have done to resist federal encroachment and  what they pledge to do.
