James Burns, Libertarian, visits Pittsburgh's Thomas Jefferson Think Tank -- WED night

Last month, as part of our series on the proper role of government, former Congresswoman Melissa Hart joined us (Thomas Jefferson Think Tank) to give her thoughts on the subject and her observations from her years in Congress.

Ms. Hart advised a slow incremental approach to moving the Left/Right – Liberal/ Conservative needle of the American Political scene more toward the right side. The Constitutionalists advised a more hard line approach. They wanted a legislator to use a “Just Say NO” approach, to just vote down any legislation that in any way doesn't meet their criteria of what the Constitution says.

This month, we will have another guest speaker. James “Libertarian” Burns, one of the front-running contenders for the Libertarian Party Presidential nomination, will join us. The format will be the same as last month, with Jim giving a short talk and then participating in a question and answer session. We look forward to meeting Jim and hearing his thoughts on the Libertarian approach to government and how it will address and hopefully solve the many problems facing us in the 21st Century.

Come join us to see how Libertarian ideas survive the “Ray” test. Are Libertarians the true “Agents of Change”?

Come early to enjoy the food, drink, and bring a friend. We will see you Wednesday, March 5, 2008 located at Silvioni’s, 2125 Babcock Boulevard. Dinner will be served until 7:00 pm. The meeting will start at approximately 7:15 pm.
