Turning Point USA, new platform for Conservative students
Over the course of the last 4 months I have had the wonderful opportunity to get involved with Turning Point USA (TPUSA). TPUSA is a great organization for students who have fiscally Conservative views believing in limited government, lowering taxes, and capitalism curing poverty. The great thing about TPUSA is that they have a variety of people from different political backgrounds. Many TPUSA members are members who are socially liberal (Libertarian) and subscribe to different ideals such as being pro-choice.
On the Beloit College campus, Conservative students haven’t a solid platform to get their views across. TPUSA is that platform which will allow students who are fiscally Conservative to get their views heard on what we believe is the right direction for the country. Before the end of the semester, I remain optimistic that we will have some sort of panel for both students on the left, and students on the right, to talk about certain issues, including both domestic and foreign policy. This would be a great way for students to hear from a variety of political viewpoints.
TPUSA provides students with fantastic opportunities. This past winter I had the opportunity to attend a student action summit in West Palm Beach, Florida. TPUSA provided lodging, and I had the opportunity to listen to speakers with a variety of political views. Speakers ranged from Ben Shapiro, to Dave Rubin, and included awesome workshops helping attendees learn about resume and cover letter writing and how to create dialogue with students on the left. In fact, TPUSA has a Midwest Regional Conference coming up, and I would urge any Conservative students to apply on the TPUSA website, https://www.tpusa.com/.
I am very excited to see TPUSA continue to grow on the Beloit College campus. In the upcoming semesters I hope to have fiscally Conservative speakers come talk to students. TPUSA is a great outlet, and one that will increase dialogue from all sides of the political spectrum.
