As national attention focused on Florida last week, AFP-Florida prepared for three days of jam packed events in Orlando. Hundreds of you joined us for the Presidency 5 Presidential Debate and straw poll, the speeches and educational sessions of CPAC, and one of the highlights of the weekend an amazing Suite Tea Breakfast with Andrew Breitbart.
Patriots were out in Orlando in full force! We were on-sight distributing t-shirts and educational materials, as well as our ever-so-popular Its the Spending, Stupid! buttons. We handed out 3,500 of them and they were a prominent fixture on lapels and sweaters throughout the weekend. If you have a picture of you and your friends wearing one of our buttons or shirts please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can see the pictures we already have posted of the P5 booth and attendees here.

Money carries too many strings Why the state should reject federal healthcare money.

As printed in the Daytona Beach News Journal
The current debate in Washington reminds us of the stark reality -- federal money is not free money. As taxpayers, we already find ourselves in a very deep hole with an overwhelming federal debt burden of more than $14 trillion -- or $46,000 for every man, woman and child in America. The solution is not to dig deeper, even if the shovel is being paid for by a federal grant.
