“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”–Nelson Mandela
The inspiration to start Turning Point USA was not a political motivation. Instead, it is an idea that every young person in the country can possess the knowledge and power to stand up against falsehoods. The true dangers of high debts and deficits can be understood by every citizen, young or old, liberal or conservative. Turning Point USA never was, or will be in a favor of a candidate or a political party. Rather, Turning Point USA stands firmly on the grounds that older generations have a moral authority and responsibility to hand a better country down to their grandchildren. Recently we have seen the opposite. We are seeing the negative effect s of high debts and deficits, the destructive force of trillion dollars deficits, and the byproducts of an ill-informed electorate.
Turning Point USA will work tirelessly towards an informed electorate, by establishing chapters in high schools, and colleges. We will be hosting debates, rallies, town halls, and addressing the issues plaguing this country. Unite with us behind the tenets of fiscal responsibility, living within one’s means, and the collective belief that tomorrow is brighter.
This year will be tumultuous legislatively and economically. From governmental and fiscal chaos to rapid advances in the energy and petrochemical sectors, there will be conflicting indicators of pending economic doom to strong growth. In the end, it will hinge on political cooperation (which we won’t see) and entrepreneurship (which we will see). In 2013, the biggest underlying strength will be the reality that we are on our way to energy independence—and the world knows it.

After every major shooting politicians try to exploit it to limit our freedoms. They attempt to ban guns that look scary, high capacity magazines, or forced registrations. They never go after the real problem and that is the criminals.
Instead of registering citizens, why not go after the real problem and that is have a criminal registry that can be publicly viewed.
Cathy Jones, Executive Director of the Concerned Educators Against Forced Unionism (CEAFU.org), sent a letter today to the U.S. Department of Labor demanding that a teachers union local comply with federal disclosure laws (click to download letter and related NLRB ruling).
The Illinois Federation of Teachers (IFT) created a local union designated to use Big Labor organizing tactics against charter schools in an attempt force teachers into compulsory dues agreements. One school appealed to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) when Local 4343 tried to use card-check forced-unionism to compel Chicago Mathematics & Science Academy Charter School, Inc. (CMSA) to sign an agreement under state public sector rules. However, CMSA is a private employer, CMSA is covered under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) organizing rules. The NLRB agreed with the school that they are indeed a private employer and that NLRA rules apply.
