Notable Quotables This Week: Daily Caller and POLITICO

When I’m not busy working with students or traveling, I like to use social media. Apparently my opinion is being sought after. I’m only 21 and my tweets, posts, and opinions are making waves. I am grateful for this. 

I was quoted in the Daily Caller (Majority of young people want more government, November 28, 2012) on my thoughts about the new Pew Research Poll saying young people have a favorable view of paternalistic government.

“The rise in young people embracing paternalistic government comes as no shock,” said Gabriella Hoffman, a field coordinator for the Leadership Institute, in an email to The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Most have developed contempt for free enterprise and limited government from their college professors who inject anti-free market, socialist and even Marxist views into their lectures.”

Students with non-liberal views need to fight back, or be drowned out entirely, she said.

“If students don’t expose this bias and bombard their campuses with alternative viewpoints, then more young people will become slaves to the government.”

And I got a mention in POLITICO (Right ballistic over John Boehner ‘purge’, December 5, 2012) for a tweet calling for new House Republican leadership. (This tweet is mine and POLITICO took it from my Twitter feed, so it’s not representative of the organization I work for.)

“Gabriella Hoffman of the conservative Leadership Institute offered, “We want a competent Speaker of the House, not a feckless Weeper of the House. #FireBoehner.”

I will continue to update my blog. Stay tuned!

    Dear Gabriella,

    I’m an editor at Freedom Forge Press, a new voice in promoting individual freedoms. Our first anthology is accepting submissions through January 31, 2013, and I wanted to invite you to write something for us.

    Our anthology will include nonfictional essays and personal stories, as well as fictional pieces about freedom. So far, we’ve got submissions and commitments from several freedom-loving organizations (policy houses in the DC area and state policy groups, too) on board, but we’re still looking for more.

    Pieces could range from creative fiction to more policy-oriented works to general essays that advance limited government and individual rights. (For a quick summary of the anthology, look here:

    When browsing your website, I see that your parents had first-hand experience regarding the importance of freedom. It seems like this has made a lasting impact with you, and I believe our readers would benefit from your perspective. Would you consider writing something for our anthology?

    Additionally, if you wanted to share our press’s information and call for submissions with your group and social networking sites, we would appreciate the shout out.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Val Muller
    Editor, Freedom Forge Press
