    HERNDON, VA – Some of America’s top conservative leaders—Governor Scott Walker, Congressman Sean Duffy, Stephen K. Bannon, Peter Schweizer, Michael Reagan, Kate Obenshain, and Bruce Herschensohn—will inspire a maximum capacity audience of students at Young America’s Foundation’s annual West Coast Leadership Conference in Santa Barbara, California.

    Governor Scott Walker will deliver the program’s keynote address during a special luncheon on the lawn of the Reagan Ranch—President Reagan’s home for nearly 25 years and the mountain-top retreat where he spent 349 days of his Presidency. Just like President Reagan wasn’t afraid to confront the unions in 1981, Governor Walker reformed the union-government collusion in Wisconsin and had tremendous results. More than 40,000 new jobs have been created in Wisconsin during the first six months of his administration. 

    In addition to hearing from leading conservatives, the conference participants will walk in the President’s footsteps at beloved Rancho del Cielo, where they will gain a greater appreciation for President Reagan and his lasting accomplishments.

    Past program attendees describe their Reagan Ranch visit as “one of the most humbling experiences” of their lives.

    The 2011 West Coast Leadership Conference brings young people face-to-face with national leaders working to grow our economy and advance freedom by advocating for the ideas and values President Reagan championed.

    Schedule of Events:

    Friday, November 11 – Reagan Ranch Center (Santa Barbara, California)

    1:00 p.m. – Michael Reagan, Author and son of Ronald Reagan

    3:00 p.m. – Stephen K. Bannon, Award-winning director of The Undefeated and Still Point in a Turning World

    • As I think I've mentioned berofe, I left the Republican Party to work for McCarthy in 1968 over Vietnam. I worked full-time for McGovern in 1972. In '76, I was actually upset because Carter got the nomination, since I didn't consider him liberal enough!I thought he would do us good by backing off the simplistic worldview that had dominated American foreign policy since the end of WWII, and maybe strengthen our popularity in the world by taking human rights more into account than we had berofe. To a limited degree, he did. I didn't blame him for the economy in 1980 for the same reason I didn't blame Dubyah in 2000: messes that big originate a great deal longer than four years earlier than they manifest themselves. Reagan I had always viewed as the ultimate right wing nutcase,and the fact is that despite his "there you go again" bit at the convention, every one of those zany positions Carter ascribed to him he had actually taken at some point. Reagan scared me to death, and I saw Carter as being more unlucky than incompetent.Then, of course, Carter was the last pro-life nominee the Democrats have ever chosen.I voted reflexively for Mondale in 1984, but struggled with Dukakis berofe finally voting for him in 1988. The Democrats' position on abortion was becoming harder and harder for me to handle, especially after I started seminary and had to put up with the moonbat politics which defined Warthog as a community. I found myself drifting further and further to the Right on foreign policy and other issues just because I was surrounded on all sides by the zany Left.The last straw was 1990, after I accepted a call to Iowa. A very popular, pro-life Democratic Attorney General was the only candidate with a chance of beating the Republican governor, but the moonbat-dominated Iowa Democratic Party defeated him in the primary in favor of a pro-abortion non-entity who went on to lose big. It was at that point that I realized that there was no room in the Democratic Party for pro-lifers. Combined with my disillusionment with the Left on foreign policy, I changed my registration and voted for Poppy Bush over Clinton in 1992.
