    Winner receives free tuition to Young America's Foundation's 2014 National Conservative Student Conference -- a $2,700 value!  

    Challenge your campus Left with a petition to "redistribute" their personal grade point averages! 

    DEADLINE APRIL 18, 2014

    Your liberal classmates believe it is moral to confiscate money from hard-working Americans and entrepreneurs and give it to those who didn't earn it, yet what will they say when you ask them to apply that same philosophy to their grade point averages? 
    Young America's Foundation invites you to film your fellow students' reactions when you ask them to pledge their support to grant your school's administration the power to redistribute grade point averages to those who are not high academic achievers 
    We have a created a " petition" for your group to use on tax day, April 15, to educate your peers about the immorality of socialism.

    *Film students' reactions while you ask them if they would voluntarily redistribute their grade points to a failing student and turn their A to a B or B to a C in the name of  "fairness." The hypocrisy is obvious. Liberals embrace socialist policies when their own property is unaffected, but when socialism affects them personally, watch them become advocates of free enterprise instantaneously!
    *Video entries cannot include the word or words Democrat(s), Republican(s), vote, elect, election, campaign or reference anything political in nature. 
    Go ahead, watch what happens when you ask them to "spread their grades around" to lower performing students.
    Entries must be submitted to Young America's Foundation by April 18, 2014. Please email the video link to Patrick Coyle.

    The creator(s) (limit of up to three students) of the best video will win FREE tuition to Young America's Foundation's 2014 National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, DC, July 28 to August 2, 2014.

    • So it is immoral to help those who are having trouble in life??? Who is decides who does not earn support? Most of those who need support now and then are those very hard-working Americans and entrepreneurs (I don't know why you would imply that entrepreneurs are not hard working). Most folks think it is moral to support the veteran who comes home but can't find a job. Most folks think it is moral to support a woman caring for her children after her husband of nine years runs off with someone else. Most folks think it is moral to support someone who worked for a firm for 20 years and, through no fault of their own, lost their job and not being able to find another job right away. Most people would say it is right to support someone who was injured on the job and cannot go back to the same position due to that injury. Social programs have always existed in our country and others. Having social programs does NOT make a country a Socialist country. A GPA redistribution is a rather trite comparison.

    • Doc, I think you're missing the point. It's a critique of income redistribution through methods such as progressive taxation, not a push to abolish all social programs. You can oppose unjust forms of wealth redistribution without wanting to eliminate welfare programs entirely.

    • Income redistribution has accelerated since about 2000 and it was going at a pretty good clip even then. That redistribution being TO the top 1-2%. The top 1-2% then use their $ power to influence Congress allowing them to export American jobs overseas while getting a tax break in the process. IF these supposed "job creators" are creating jobs it is NOT for Americans. Progressive taxation in the post World War II era made the U.S. the power that it became. Since 2000 we have marginalized the Middle Class to benefit the top tier.
