FROM THE FIELD with STEPHANIE CONWAY — Capitalism Cures Week

Anyone having experienced a college campus from a right-of-center standing can tell you the troubles they encountered in dealings with the administration and peers. Having presided as President of the right wing club on my university campus I encountered people weekly who wanted to speak out but feared retaliation from not only their peers but professors as well in the way they were graded. Few students realize that on campus, they are not alone, there are many who identify with them but are silent because of campus culture.

My name is Stephanie Conway, I have taken my experience with boldness on campus and am putting it to use as the Dallas Field Coordinator with Turning Point USA. This past week of our 10-week Big Government Sucks initiative, Capitalism Cures, had me on campuses across North Texas explaining the benefits of capitalism. The free buttons and stickers proclaiming Big Government Sucks bring students to the table, support for a friendly business climate and individual success has them signing on to be a part of this ever growing youth movement.

Students in college across the country are being introduced to this unique approach to campus activism, and describing them as receptive is inadequate. A transplant to Texas from blue Connecticut I was happily surprised to meet all the liberty minded students in North Texas. The most rewarding part of conversations with these students is the desire to learn more is evident in all of them. They frequently approach the table asking, “what is big government?”and after just a little discussion they are signing their names down and snatching up books, pamphlets, and buttons. What we have in college students are not selfish young people devoid of political knowledge, but bright minds eager to learn, future activists who have not been taught how to articulate the benefits of capitalism.

That is why Turning Point USA and Big Government Sucks are an essential part of bringing the greatness of our nation back to light through the power of the youth. When you give them the tools to tell others, and the confidence of knowing they are not the only one on campus who knows capitalism cures, they bring that knowledge to other students they encounter. The young people are not the lost cause that they get painted as. With encouragement, the tools to carry out the message, and the support of Turning Point USA there will be a change in campus culture. I have seen the excitement of students myself in my work here. With the inevitable spread of Big Government Sucks I am confident we will see it across the country as well. This is the kind of youth movement you’re going to want to be a part of.

Your daily reminder that Crony Capitalism =/= Free Market Capitalism

Daily Reminder that we don’t have “Free Market” capitalism, we have Crony Capitalism, and conservatives are AGAINST the desperately needed regulations which could fix things.

We here at Turning Point USA hope that everyone understands that overburdening regulations, as well as corporate welfare, is part of what is known as crony capitalism and that regulations don’t mean better. 

Your daily reminder that Crony Capitalism =/= Free Market Capitalism

End poverty. Support free market capitalism.

Do you think the “left/right” paradigm is an accurate descriptor of the spectrum of American political ideology? 

The field of potential 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls is full and often talked about, but not so much the Democratic hopefuls.

Who do you think will win the Democratic nomination in 2016?
