A little less than a year ago, I wrote an article titled "10 Conservatives Every College Conservative Should Follow On Twitter." The article did pretty well, and one of the people on the list (Kassy Dillon) even tweeted the article out. It even started a small trend where people tweeted out their own top ten because a lot of people were not happy with my top ten (which is fine, but it was just my opinion). However, it has been almost a year since that article and my time in politics has grown significantly. With that said, so have my opinions. Here is my updated list of the top ten conservatives all college conservatives should be following.

(For a fresh new list, I've excluded anyone who made the list last year).

1. Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley)

President Trump's former United Nations Ambassador, Nikki Haley now has her own personal twitter after giving Trump the two years she promised him. We are all very eager to see what the future holds for Nikki Haley, and silently pray it holds a presidential run.

2. The Daily Wire (@realDailyWire)

The news source ran by Ben Shapiro has continued to time and time again prove to be the most reliable source to me. I know when looking for news on something, it will almost always be there on the Daily Wire. The new source is a conservative news source, so don't go there looking for opposing views, you probably won't find too many.

3. Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom)

Joe Walsh is a former Congressman and now hosts a radio/TV show based out of Chicago. Joe Walsh and I don't agree on everything and he is definitely more libertarian, but opposing views are good especially when you both claim to be on the same side.

4. Future Female Leaders (@FFL_of_America)

Future Female Leaders is an all-female organization focused on empowering young conservative women and giving them resources to achieve their dreams in politics. They also have an amazing merchandise shop (stickers!!!).

5. Ben Sasse (@BenSasse)

Ben Sasse is a US Senator from Nebraska. He was rocketed into the select group of people that the conservative groupie follows around after his blow up around the Kavanaugh hearings. Since then, he's released a book about fixing the divide between the left and the right. He is personally one of my favorite Senators.

6. Michael Knowles (@michaeljknowles)

A writer and host of his own show, "The Michael Knowles Show" at the Daily Wire, Michael Knowles has made a name for himself on twitter with his quick wit and humor. He has great opinions and is awesome at calling out others.

7. Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX)

A Congressman from Texas, Dan Crenshaw is a former Navy Seal who has now dedicated his life to changing our nation through legislation. He's an inspiration to everyone, and definitely someone everyone should look up to regardless of political views.

8. Dave Rubin (@RubinReport)

I can hear it now, "hE's NoT cOnSeRvAtIvE." I know, he's a classical liberal. But even though we may agree on a couple issues or more Dave Rubin has always done a great job at hearing all sides and explaining his own in a calm and collected way. I always find myself tuning into the Rubin Report whenever I can, and watching his speaking events.

9. Leadership Institute (@LeadershipInst)

The Leadership Institute trains conservatives. Through providing resources, speakers, and training, LI helps to teach young conservatives professionalism and how to host speakers, correctly compose a resume, and find internships/jobs.

10. Kimberly Corban (@Kimberly_Corban)

Kimberly Corban's story as a survivor of rape is inspiring. However, her message is much larger now since her story was politicized and used by lobbyist groups. She keeps it real and tells it how it is, and anyone can learn a thing or two about class from her.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Dear Young Voices Of America, Stand Up, Speak Up, And Do Something

Our time is now.

404

Dear young voices of America, I think we can both agree that we are sick of being told we are America's future while simultaneously being told our opinions don't matter. Now I personally do not listen to the people that tell me I'm better seen than heard; however, I know there are people that are a little timider when it comes to raising their voices. I am here to encourage you to be loud and speak up on topics that matter to you. There is no better time than the present to make your voice heard. Whether you are advocating for change in your school or the government, your opinion matters and is relevant.

We are the future of our country. How are we supposed to evoke change and reform if we can't have our voices heard? I call bullshit and I think it's time to take action. Even if you're the first or only person to advocate for your cause, be that person. Don't be afraid of anyone that tries to stand in your way. The only person that can stop you from speaking up for yourself and your cause is you. No matter how many nos you have to hear to get a yes or how many doors you have to knock on to get someone to open up, never give up. Never give up on your cause, never give up on yourself or the people you're representing, just don't do it. There is someone out there that supports you. Maybe they're just too shy to raise their voice too. Be encouraging and be supportive and get people to take a stand with you.

It is never too early or too late to start thinking about your future or to take action. But don't hesitate to say something. The sooner you start speaking up, the sooner you have people joining you and helping you, and the sooner you start to see and experience change. So get up, make that sign, write that letter, make that phone call, take part in that march, give that speech. Do whatever you feel fit to get your point across. Shout it from the rooftops, write it on your profile, send it in a letter, ignore everyone that tries to tell you to give up. Maybe they don't understand now, maybe they don't want to listen, maybe they're afraid to listen, but the more you talk about it and help them understand what exactly you are trying to get across, they will join you.

Even when it feels like you have nobody on your side but yourself, I am on your side. I will cheer you on, I will march with you hand in hand, I will write letters and make phone calls and help you find your voice. My life changed when I found my voice and yours will too.

So dear young voices of America, the time is now. Your time is now. Don't be afraid of the obstacles that you may have to face. Someone is out there waiting for you, waiting to grab your hand and march on with you. As Tarana Burke once said "Get up. Stand up. Speak up. Do something."
