Ron Paul Iowa Team
Announces National ‘Students for Ron Paul’ Coalition
domestic, foreign policies appeal to youth
ANKENY, Iowa– The Iowa component of the Ron Paul 2012 presidential
campaign announced today the national “Students for Ron Paul” coalition
to energize voting-age youth in support of Dr. Paul.
“Having been involved in politics for many years now, I have yet to see
a politician produce a crowd of young college students like Ron Paul
can. Dr. Paul does the unlikely by energizing a voter segment
that is known for their apathy,” said “Students for Ron Paul” national
advisory board member Ani DeGroot.
“The younger generation is beginning to realize the weight being thrust
upon them, and with Dr. Paul as a spokesperson youth are rising up to
face new challenges,” said Ms. DeGroot, who works as a regional
director for the Ron Paul campaign in Iowa.
Ms. DeGroot is a former Iowa State Chair for Young Americans for
Liberty (YAL) and former Campus Coordinator for Students for Liberty at
the University of Iowa.
“Ron Paul's defense of liberty shows his commitment to the future.
As a student and veteran, I take particular interest in Dr. Paul
because he sees the folly of wasting American blood and treasure on
intervening in foreign affairs, a policy that makes America less safe,”
said “Students for Ron Paul” national advisory board member Drew Hjelm,
referring to his U.S. Army service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Dr. Paul’s unheeded calls for fiscal
sanity and sound money in Washington have led to economic upheaval for
many Americans and the rest of the world. His consistent message
freedom resonates with those who will inherit the future,” continued
“The next election will determine not only the President for the
four years but the overall condition of
America's future. Therefore,
the only choice in the 2012 election I can make as a young student and
informed voter is to support Congressman Ron Paul of Texas,” said Ben
is the only candidate that I trust will put principle above politics,
conviction above compromise, and my civil liberties above grabbing for
more personal power. I feel the utmost confidence with my
support him,” said Mr. Levine, a “Students for Ron Paul” national
advisory board member and the YAL Chapter President at Drake University
in Des Moines, Iowa.
