Hope to see you at the Convention!
November 23, 2003
We the People Foundation for Constitutional Education, Inc., and We the
People Congress, Inc., will be holding our first yearly conventions. As the
individual doing the planning for this huge event, I can tell you that as
of this date, the following speakers are confirmed:
Hutton Gibson, father of Oscar winning director and actor, Mel Gibson
Delegate Don Dwyer, serves in the Maryland State Legislature
Councilman Normal Council, Landsdowne PA City Council
Dr. Edwin Vieira [tentative as he has a trial in mid-Jan]
I speak with so many of you over the years or exchange e-mail, yet I never get
to meet you. I hope you will be able to make the convention and enjoy this
wonderful event and even say hi to each other!
Be sure to make your reservation right away as we only have 40 rooms held at
the $99.00 discount rate. Also, the first two rows only, are reserved, center section
seating in the amphitheater. There are only 25 tickets. This guarantees you will
sit in those two front rows for all three days.
I deliberately chose the Crystal City Forum Amphitheater instead of just a room
with tables and chairs. The seating is fabulous; each comfortable seat has it's own
little table for coffee and we will have the giant screen on stage so everyone will be
able to see just fine. Much more comfortable than metal chairs.
The private reception will give you the opportunity to meet our distinguished speakers.
The Celebrated String Quartet will play during the reception; hors d'oeuvres and bar
will be provided.
The banquet will offer either a beef or chicken dish from the Marriott's very accomplished
chef. This is also limited seating: 250. The Celebrated String Quartet will also entertain
us until our keynote speaker hits the podium.

including the Iraq Resolution, the Federal Reserve, the USA Patriot Act and the federal
