It’s widely known that conservatives do not occupy most administrative or teaching roles on college campuses. Some studies have shown that liberal professors outnumber conservatives on campus by a factor of nearly 12 to 1. Despite this, grassroots, college-based organizations like Young Americans for Freedom or Turning Point USA have sprung up and encouraged students to think critically on political philosophy. Abortion, economics, and immigration are all issues that conservatives commonly discuss in political forums. However, one issue that young conservatives haven’t discussed enough is the issue of national security.

In a speech recently given at the University of Illinois, former President Barack Obama mentioned the issue of national security, where he condemned Donald Trump’s rhetorical support for improved diplomatic relations with Russia.
