Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or another capacity?

Unfortunately, we are in one of the most critical times in our nation’s history. America is desperately hurting right now, and its people are looking for direction. This current climate gives right-of-center youth an incredible opportunity to stand up and be the voice that so many are looking for to lead them in the battle for this nation. It is vital that the people who truly understand the U.S. Constitution and the principles that our country was founded on, step up and take on this role, doing it out of the sincerity of their hearts, for the right reasons. We need leaders who love this country and are passionate about its people. If my fellow leaders will stand up and fight with all they have, we can change this nation for the better.

 

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

>We crave candor and we long for genuine candidates who mean what they say, can truly relate, and have strong leadership skills. We need someone who isn’t afraid to take a stand for what is right, someone who speaks the truth and doesn’t always do what is popular. We also need someone whose heart longs to serve the American people, who understands the gravity of their leadership role, and who earns the trust and accepts the responsibility that their constituents have placed with them.

 

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

I would love to see a conservative movement full of patriots who live and breathe red, white, and blue: men and women who want nothing more than to serve their country, to honor their duty to their ancestors, to protect the blood of patriots who have been willing to fight and die for their freedom, and who do it out of their passion for country and not for an insatiable desire for power. We in America live as if freedom is free and we forget the price that was — and continues to be — paid to secure it. This is such an enormous gift, and if America and our youth could grasp this concept, I truly feel it would change this nation for the better.

I hope to see leaders who do the right thing instead of playing the games of the other side, and who serve because they are called to serve, not to gain power, minions, and notoriety. We need people who can’t sleep at night because their constituents can’t feed their families, because our military doesn’t have the supplies it needs, and because our children aren’t receiving the proper education they deserve. Once we start getting genuine leaders who truly represent the people, the conservative movement will take over this country, and it will be the most prosperous time in our nation’s history.
