Free-market activists will gather at Washington’s Mayflower Hotel next week for the “Defending the American Dream Summit.”

“Today, the voices of average Americans are being drowned out by big government special interests,” the Americans for Prosperity Foundation said in announcing the Oct. 4-5 event, warning against “policies that are threatening to destroy the American Dream — higher taxes, more spending, burdensome regulation and endless red tape.”

The summit will feature appearances by four Republican presidential candidates — former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. Other speakers at the event include John Stossel of ABC News, John Fund of the Wall Street Journal, radio host Herman Cain, Republican Sens. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Jim DeMint of South Carolina, and former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele.

The event will conclude with a dinner tribute to former President Ronald Reagan featuring author Dinesh D’Souza.
