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 in other capacities?

With election season quickly approaching, it is incumbent upon each and every member of the Millennial generation to stand up for the principles in which they believe. Right-of-center youth, who recognize the strength of democratic capitalism and the benefits of individualism, must get involved. Loudly. President Obama garnered the majority of the youth vote: if right-of-center youth wish to have more millennials vote for the Republican candidate in 2016, we must all take action.

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

Right-of-center messages such as individualism, limited government, and equality already resonate with the Millennial generation. The problem? The majority of Millennials do not recognize this reality. Elected officials must speak the language of Millennials. Cross-generationally, the content of the messaging is irrelevant if the medium of communication lacks an emotional charge. This is especially true with the Millennial generation.

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

The conservative movement must continue to champion the founding principles of the United States, mainly our democratic principles and the belief in liberty for the individual. The world today features an abundance of state and non-state actors who challenge the fundamental values of Western Civilization. With a strong stance in support of basic human rights and against tyranny, the conservative movement can ensure that an increased number of individuals are afforded the opportunity to enjoy true freedom. This will require brave leaders standing firm in the face of many obstacles and refusing to relent when others opt for appeasement.
