Breakout Session #2, Virginia Suite
Can Silicon Valley Save the Republic? by Ed Hudgins
Economic and personal liberty are being eroded by governments as the entitlement culture transforms independent individuals into servile subjects.

Can the GOP avoid the dustbin of history by transforming itself into a futurist party, bringing in modernist achievers, and jettisoning its anti-liberty baggage?
