Justin Pulliam attributes his strong conservative values to a childhood spent on a cattle ranch, where he learned the importance of working hard for a living.

“When you’re on the ranch, you’re either listening to George Strait or Rush Limbaugh, so early on, I learned why I was a conservative,” Pulliam said.

Pulliam, 22, attended Texas A&M University, where he founded the Texas Aggie Conservatives – one of the most active conservative student groups in the country.

“We exposed [a leftist campus organization] spending over $100,000 past their money in student fees each year doing crazy stuff, like having seminars where they showed pornographic videos,” said Pulliam.

As a result of their efforts, a special amendment was added to the State’s High Education Bill to limit this reckless spending. Although the bill was not a legislative success, Pulliam says the group’s work was instrumental in raising awareness about problems with higher education spending.

“I went to public school and once I got to college, I learned that there was a lot I wasn’t taught and a lot of stuff I was taught was biased,” Pulliam said, stressing the importance of school choice in all levels of learning and in primary and secondary education in particular. “That would definitely lead to great results for young people,” he said.

At the moment, Pulliam is taking a break from grassroots activism, which he calls his hobby, to attend medical school at the University of Texas-San Antonio. However, he hopes to stay involved in the conservative movement, particularly in campus activism.
