Conference Pay-Per-View

We The People Foundation is pleased to announce the final Agenda and a list of confirmed speakers for our Give Me liberty 2007 conference. You will notice a significant departure in subject matter from what we had in mind when we first decided to sponsor GML 2007. 

But for our review of two publications and a certain clause of the U.S. Constitution, we would have settled on a different agenda months ago.  

The course and speed we were taking to GML 2007 were significantly altered, first when an 82-page Working Paper that was published last year by two university Professors came to our attention, and then, by a 264-page book (actually a detailed historical report) that was published last year by former President Jimmy Carter. 

These two documents caused a great awaking on our part. We discovered one, if not the root cause of the steady growth of a police state in America and the resultant erosion of our individual Rights, Liberties and Freedoms. We were compelled to research the subject further. We found verification of the facts and our deductive reasoning that led to our controversial findings.  

We instinctively felt the Constitution was being violated. We needed to identify the provision(s) of the U.S. Constitution that were at issue and could best be used by the People as a sword to address and solve the problem. We settled on the appropriate constitutional clause and then decided we had no choice but to add the matter to the GML 2007 agenda and begin a search for appropriate speakers.

The Two Professors

The Working Paper that caught our attention was published last March by Professor John Mearsheimer from the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago, and Professor Stephen Walt from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. The Working Paper is titled, “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.”
