The Palmetto Freedom Forum will be held on September 5th, 2011 at 3pm in Columbia, SC. Details from the announcement are below.

In 2010, Americans sent a new crop of conservatives to Washington to shake up the status quo and demand a smaller government that pays its bills, instead of passing debt to our children and grandchildren. We must continue this progress in 2012 by sending a true conservative to the White House.

One way to help identify the best Republican candidate for president is by participating in the Palmetto Freedom Forum, sponsored by the American Principles Project. The Palmetto Freedom Forum is a one-of-a-kind event that will take place in Columbia, South Carolina at 3 p.m. on September 5, 2011.

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), Congressman Steve King (R-IA), and constitutional expert Dr. Robert George will interview each of the candidates individually and ask them questions that are on the minds of conservatives around the country. Several of the top candidates, including Michele BachmannHerman CainNewt GingrichRon Paul, and Rick Perry have already confirmed their participation.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Attend in person by signing up to win tickets. Winners will be selected at 9 a.m. on Thursday, August 25, 2011, so sign up today.
  • Follow the event on Facebook so you get the latest forum news and know where to watch it live.

This won’t be a mainstream media debate filled with “gotcha” questions and 5-second sound bites. Instead, it’s an opportunity for the candidates to outline their positions on the key issues and to respond to real questions.

This forum is part of the process of determing which candidate has what it takes to be a courageous, competent, and conservative president. We hope you will participate in this important pre-primary election event.
