  • Speakers on Campus April 2014Stars of the Conservative Movement visited campuses from Massachusetts to California addressing packed halls of students. April is typically one of the busiest months of the year for Young America's Foundation's campus lecture program, and this year is no exception. Throughout the month, Speaker Newt Gingrich, Charles Krauthammer, Herman Cain, John Stossel,  and many other leaders addressed students on a wide variety of topics, including Obamacare, free enterprise, and the Second Amendment.
     
    The University of Arizona Young Americans for Freedom chapter hosted Foundation alumna and New York Times bestselling author Katie Pavlich to a packed hall of students. Immediately before the event, university administrators employed a common tactic to derail the event by changing the room the YAF chapter previously reserved for the event. Despite this leftist trick, the event was filled to capacity. 
     
    Pulitzer Prize winner Charles Krauthammer spoke to students and community members at Cornell University. The Fox News contributor addressed Obamacare, which he says has most profoundly changed the trajectory of medicine. Krauthammer told the audience he believes Obamacare will not survive because it is unsustainable. "Obamacare is not a good solution," he commented.

    Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at St. Olaf College in Minnesota. He discussed how Ronald Reagan was a transformational figure and the future of conservatism. Speaker Gingrich explained, "There is an opportunity to create a conservatism that brings us together…to develop a better future and to talk through the kind of solutions that are so powerful...I hope that will be the nature of conservatism over the next 20 years."  

    As part of the Harold Simmons Free Enterprise Lecture Series, former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain spoke to a packed hall at Harvard University, and Fox Business Channel host John Stossel spoke to students at Providence Academy in Minnesota. 
     
    Other events during the month of April included Ann Coulter's lectures at the University of Minnesota and the University of Notre Dame, Dinesh D'Souza's appearance at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, Karl Rove's address at Fort Hays State University, Lt. Col. Allen West's remarks at DePaul University, author Kate Obenshain's lecture at Highland High School (Ohio), and Attorney General John Ashcroft's speech at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst.

    • I begged and pleaded for Ann Romney to get her husband off his duff, go to the high schools and colleges to speak TO not AT the students. Find out their goals and aspirations, ? & answer period. Just let them see that the guy was real, not plastic, and had ideas on how to better our nation.
