Brief Notes from 2014 PLC –
How to Win the Fight for Free Enterprise – Dr. Arthur Brooks, American Enterprise Institute. Dr. Brooks wrote the book The Road to Freedom, which those who attended the 2014 Leadership Conference received a complementary copy.
We have a big fight on our hands. We need to fight for people who are not here today; the people Obama has left behind. They need defenders and warriors. Patriots fight for their fellow citizens, we are the patriots.
Our Hope Agenda
1) Education – school should be for kids, not adults. Schools are protected by grownups. Choice and innovation are missing. Public schools in DC spend $18,474 per student but lack in reading
2) Work – jobs/minium wage. Dead end jobs, problem is job has no future. Many start with dead end jobs. No dead end jobs, dead end people, dead end cultural, dead end government.
3) Entrepreneurship – the heroes of American cultural. Usually when we talk about entrepreneurs we talk about rich people. He earned a living and supported his family and kids saw him supporting himself. Enterprise the dignified venture of your life. Entrepreneur by the poor is down by 2%. American is against the little guy, against the poor and unAmerican.
