The old lion is dead

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows…

GOP Debate: The Winners

The GOP came into Boulder looking for direction due to Trump’s slump, Bush’s underwhelming candidacy, and Carson’s sudden rise to the top of the polls. All these elements have muddled the race over the past few weeks. The CNBC Republican debate provided the party with much-needed direction and set a new tone for the race. As for the actual debate, National Review provided the best and most concise summary with its headline “A Big Night for the GOP’s Cuban-American Duo”, as there were two…

What We Are Up Against

On Wednesday, October 2nd, the Media Research Center (MRC), a conservative media watchdog group, released a report that showed how the mainstream media had covered the impending debt fight from September 17th to September 30th. Shockingly, the Big Three networks–CBS, ABC, and NBC–blamed Republicans over Democrats by an astounding 21-0. You read that correctly: 21 stories blamed the GOP, 0 blamed Democrats, and just 4 blamed both. The report highlights the very reason why the Virginia Advocate has joined the ranks of the…

Talk Shows Hosts and Conservative Leadership

Since the retirement of Newt Gingrich in 1998, the conservative movement has lacked a unifying, visionary leader able to rally conservatives to a singular agenda. Reaching millions of traditional-minded voters everyday, conservative talk show hosts and political commentators, such as Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, have proven to hold so much influence in conservative community that they have largely set the agenda for the movement, mostly to disastrous results.

Ron Paul and the GOP

Sometimes I have forgotten that Ron Paul was really up there on the Hill, tearing into Washington’s blatant disregard for its own constitution. The realization that time and time again, Dr. Paul stood up in front of 434 utterly detestable human beings, preached the gospel of liberty, and eviscerated any remainder of dignity that these Congressmen claimed to hold touched me once more when I tuned into his Farewell Address. The speech was roughly forty minutes long. Any members of the House…

Winning with Dignity and Losing with Grace: A Lesson in Civility for Students of Politics

Tuesday’s election results brought happiness to some, disappointment to others. Undoubtedly elections and campaigns are a divisive time for Americans as people equally passionate about their values and principles contend for who will be the face of their country for the next four years. On Tuesday night, our College Republicans gathered at Trinity for what we had hoped would be a victory party but was not. Within five minutes of the election being called for President Obama, a number of students, presumably…

Leaked UDems at UVa Meeting Minutes

UDems Leaked Email

September 25, 2012 540.447.0682


CHARLOTTESVILLE – The University Democrats at the University of Virginia accidentally released the minutes of their Executive Board meeting last night through their general listserv (see attached email). The release was followed by an apology email stating, “Sorry about sending out those minutes guys – now you get to see the exciting lives of the UDems exec board! (Seriously, we’re super boring).”
In the minutes, the Executive Board reveal low turnout at the University Democrats’ phone banking and canvassing efforts this election cycle. They state that there was “bad turnout” for their phone bank and “low turnout” for their canvas. Their plan to “send ur hotties” to a political forum suggests a lack of respect for the female population in our community and demonstrates the continuing decline of Democrats’ ability to persuade voters with facts and reason, as students increasingly realize Democrats offer only false promises, not real solutions for America.

College Republicans Chairman, Matt Wertman, said, “It appears that the core base for the President – the college student population – has declined and the excitement factor is just not there this year.”
Since the beginning of the semester, the College Republicans at UVA have had over 100 volunteers come out to work on behalf of the campaign. They have reached out to over 40,000 voters, including knocking on over 10,000 doors and making over 30,000 phone calls. The youth vote is clearly in favor of Republicans during this election cycle.
“We are more organized than ever this year. Our efforts have resulted in the recognition of UVA’s College Republican chapter as one of the top CR chapters in Virginia,” said Chairman Wertman. “The numbers we’re posting are unprecedented and are beginning to be replicated by chapters throughout the Commonwealth.”
The College Republicans at the University of Virginia is a member of the College Republican Federation of Virginia and the College Republican National Committee. It is dedicated to promoting Republican principles, electing Republican officials, and providing fun and entertaining speakers, debates, social events, and more.

College Republicans at UVA Hit the Ground Running

The College Republicans at UVA have had a record start this year. The information session in Ern Commons just a few weeks ago had over one hundred new people present. The College Republican mailing list has exploded this semester with hundreds of new people, many of them being returning students who only now in the midst of a heated presidential election year see the importance of taking off their masks of political silence and entrenching themselves in political activism. Every Wednesday night…
