Will As a member of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2012 (Whoop!), I am not surprised at all by this. The artical is true when it says that most people think TAMU is “right of center” but once you step foot into one of the classrooms it is the same as any college in America with most professors pushing their liberal agendas. Being an Agricultural Economics major, most of the professors in the AG college are right leaning, if not conservative. However I did have to suffer through many classes to get my basics who had very liberal agendas. My POLISCI professor wrote the book for the course. many of my peers don’t care enough to get involved, the ones who do are liberal and because of that their agendas get pushed through. We had over 50,000 enrolled for the 2011-2012 school year, but when it came to voting in the school’s elections not near that many got involved. There in lies the problem, so many people are inclined to assume they cant change anything
I do believe Texas A&M is one of the top-notch Universities in the nation, I will be proud to walk across that stage in December and I wear my ring with pride. I do though pray for the future of our nation and our universities. I made it through college with my conservitive beliefs intact, and am thankful for that. (I think maybe because I’ve prefered to listen to talk radio since I was 4 above anything else. Thanks Mom & Dad! I know y’all are reading this <3 )

If I were an Hispanic/Latino voter I would be OFFENDED by the president’s gall trying to pander to my race in order to insure he get reelected in November. Illegal is illegal is illegal, plain and simple, black and white. It is simply disgusting, yet I expect nothing less from this administration.

Should have asked one of those Aggies in the background at 1:18. :) If only I had been there. I consider myself pretty astute in these issues compared to my peers. Since I was 4, all I prefer to listen to is talk-radio(Glenn,Rush,Hannity) on a daily basis. This past election cycle (’08) I saw the idleness, indifference and utter ignorance of my fellow first-time voters. Many of these voters got 98% of their information about potential candidates from the likes of MTV and celebrities endorsements of Obama. From the moment I saw this I knew my generation was one of useful idiots. I am one of the few lucky ones, my parents brought me up to appreciate a good days work. They taught me the meaning of charity and how important it is to learn and remember our past to make sure we never repeat it. I fear for my generation…I fear for the survival of our country.
