Last weekend I joined your fellow Hoosiers at the Americans for Prosperity Foundations 5th Annual Defending the American Dream Summit. This was a peaceful assembly of nearly 2,500 grassroots activists from across the country. Our summit is meant to energize and educate our activists on how to be more effective in their communities as grassroots leaders.
Although there were rumors of a looming protest, the summit was coming along fine until Friday evenings dinner tribute to Ronald Reagan. During the dinner, nearly 500 Occupy DC protestors showed up outside. They surrounded the convention center and began to walk around the building, looking for an unguarded door. The police moved with them to keep anyone from entering who did not have a credential.
