A bright ray of optimism. Yes, indeed. A couple years back, Students For Liberty formed to correct the debt-bloating, liberty-debauching ills of the Demopublicans — or Republicrats if you prefer. Last weekend, 200 of these college revolutionaries gathered in Washington, D.C. to talk first principles, solutions, how to effect social change and the Constitution. They did not speak of partisan politics. I spoke as a panelist there and, a life-long activist myself, was so impressed by their professionalism, energy, optimism and politeness that upon returning home I sent them a contribution. Oregon students interested in turning the tide should contact them to organize local chapters.
