On Training Conservative Activists
In my last post, I discussed my goals through RedState: to inform and energize conservatives nationally to take action on university campuses. Daily, students are inundated with liberal ideology in the classroom and through percerse campus policies, oftentimes on the battlefield alone and unsure. Believe me, I was there. I remember being the only student to confront a professor in the classroom. I knew, though, | Read More »
