Libertarian groups organizing on campus

Libertarian groups form on campus | Emerald Media - Jennifer Hernandez:

October 14, 2013 - "Bryn Dennehy says that it’s tough to come out of the closet as a conservative on the University of Oregon campus. The school’s reputation as a liberal haven and the abundance of left-minded groups on campus paints a negative stereotype of right-wing individuals.

"That’s why Dennehy is heading up one of two new student political groups on campus that aim to give students with conservative views a forum for discussion. Both Young Americans for Liberty and College Libertarians are hoping to give students an alternative  outside the two-party system.

"'We believe that the size and scope of the government should be reduced,' said Dennehy, president of Young Americans for Liberty. 'So it only serves its most basic functions, which is to protect people’s life, liberty and property.'

"A recent Gallup poll showed that 60 percent of Americans support a need for a third political party with 26 percent believing the government is doing an adequate job at representing their views. "
