This past wave of tea-parties I was honored to give the keynote speech to over 2,500 people at a tea-party in Winston Salem, NC.
My speech, however, was distinctly different than others given that day; in fact, I made it a point to call out the injustices of the GOP in recent years. The best part, though, is that the speech was delightfully eaten up by the crowd and I spent hours after the speech talking to people about the message I aimed to convey... and they all overwhelmingly agreed with me.

Watch the speech below; in my humble opinion, this is the way we can win over the right.
Not even Ron... I remember him inquiring to Jeff Frazee: "You think we can get a couple-hundred students there?" Ron is so very humble; by no means did he expect to see a line that wrapped completely out of site to enter the event at Wake Forest.
The theme of the event, in tune with the day itself, was simple enough: LEGALIZE FREEDOM.
This week in the Old Gold & Black, the official student newspaper of Wake Forest University (Go Deacs!--we're gunning for ya Kentucky), you will find four articles written by WFU YAL members. Yes, four. (*Note: titles are provided by the student paper, not the author)
As you will see per the pictures below, the first article was not written by a YAL member. In fact, it was written in direct retaliation against the YAL group at Wake Forest University! The funny thing is, is that the article is amazing! "How so?" You ask... It means Wake Forest YAL is doing their job!
