On Wednesday, February 3rd, grassroots strategist and president of Americans for Tax Reform Grover Norquist joined the Young Leaders Circle to discuss the current trend in how Americans want their government to work for them. As presented in his recent book, Leave Us Alone: Getting the Government's Hands Off Our Money, Our Guns, Our Lives, Norquist argued that a burgeoning coalition of the American electorate who want simply to “control their own destinies,” free of government intervention and interference, has the potential to be the defining movement of the next 50 years. As a gift from Mr. Norquist, all members who attended received a complimentary copy of his book.
Mr. Norquist serves on the Board of Directors of both the American Conservative Union and the National Rifle Association, and is a contributing editor to The American Spectator. He holds a Masters of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, both from Harvard University.
