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.

If you have a picture of you and your friends wearing one of our buttons or shirts please email us at info.fl@afphq.org. You can see the pictures we already have posted of the P5 booth and attendees here.

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.
