One of the first and most important strategic points we discussed when first forming the Federalist Party was building it with the future firmly in mind. Our political world has been dominated by the “old guard” for many decades. We knew we’d need to “play the game” in order to grow, but we also wanted to make sure we looked ahead.
It’s more than that, though. Between connectivity made available to Americans through the internet and the growing angst among young adults, “millennials” are no longer satisfied with waiting. They can have a voice. They can make an impact. They can participate today.
Unfortunately, much of the angst and empowerment have been focused in the wrong direction. We see it everyday with stories about students and faculty attacking rather than promoting our freedoms. Despite a vibrant millennial population of small-government-minded people, concepts such as “safe spaces,” socialism, and selectively free speech are running rampant.
We need the tenets of Federalism to have a voice on campuses across the nation.
It’s time for action.
This month, we will be launching the formation committee for College Federalists. If you appreciate the philosophies of small-government Federalism and are in college, soon to be attending, or recently graduated, we want to talk to you. This will be an organization that is partnered with the Federalist Party, but it will be its own standalone entity operated and powered by YOU.
