Hello from Phoenix,
First the important news, it was sunny and 70 this afternoon as I walked through the streets of downtown Phoenix in my Tea Party T-shirt. (Sorry, couldn't resist).
It was a very interesting day. The Tea Party Patriots are launching what they are calling a "40 Year Plan". They intend to be able to look back in 40 years at what they have accomplished with pride. I hope I can join them...I'll only be 97. Seriously though, the idea is that they are commited to bringing America back to the principles of our founders and they are prepared for the long haul.
There were many informative breakout sessions during the day and we were treated to some very uplifting and moving speaches this evening at the opening session.
The Summit is available online (for a small fee I believe)...the info from TPP is below.
The Summit is Going Live at 7 PM in Phoenix and You Can Watch
As I write this message it is 7 PM here in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Convention Center.
Over 2,000 people are seated in the main hall for the Opening Ceremony of the first American Policy Summit. Another 2,000 are logged in to the Virtual Summit on their computers from home. Now's your chance to join with us.
Sign up for the Virtual Summit at http://summit11.org and get live access to the entire 3 day Summit. You'll also get access to recordings of all the General Sessions to play back and watch again.

JohnI will be sending updates and will have a trip report shortly after returning home.
