The Freedom Ninja
Fiscal Cliff – Foreign Policy – Civil Liberties & Law Enforcement – The Environment – American Values
Are politicians going to send America over a fiscal cliff? What exactly is a fiscal cliff anyway? And how do we avoid going over it? And have Americans surrendered their most basic civil rights in order to address a foreign policy focused on subterfuge and counter-terrorism? How has the role of law enforcement grown to affect the daily lives of citizens? And what about the environment? Can individuals and corporations spill pollutants into the environment while government licensing grants them carte blanche to do so? What is the role of the government in the affairs of citizens economic activities? And finally, how do we define American Values?
All of this and more at Fordham University Thursday, December 6th at 7PM ET. The event will be livestreamed at live.freedomworks.org
