Turning Point USA starts conversations among young people, by educating students about fiscal responsibility, free markets, and capitalism. Through non-partisan debate, dialogue, and discussion, Turning Point USA believes that every young person can be enlightened to true free market values.
WE BELIEVE: In Balanced Budgets
A country, business, or family should not spend more money than it takes in. High debts ruin economic potential, plague private investment, and jeopardize the future generations chance to enjoy prosperity.
WE BELIEVE: In an Informed Electorate
The greatest solution to combating generational theft is an electorate that understands the issues, civics, and basic governmental policy. With a more informed electorate, old political talking points of the past will no longer be viable, candidates will be forced to stand behind their principles, and pressured to execute beneficial public policy.
WE BELIEVE: In the Power of the Youth
With over 46 million younger voters eligible to vote in 2012 alone and millions more each year, younger generations are this country’s fastest growing demographic. If we do not target the youth, debts will become a thing of habit, and our republic forever lost.
WE BELIEVE: In an Independent Approach
Turning Point USA does not stand on party, rather on principle. Both sides of the aisle are responsible for reckless spending and trillion dollar deficits. It is now time for a resurgent citizen force to take action against such politicians by educating the electorate about the theft that has been occurring.
WE BELIEVE: That tomorrow is brighter
No matter how deep the hole, or gloomy the day, never bet against America. The power of freedom and liberty is a force that can overcome a government bureaucrat, agency, or even politician. The root of Turning Point USA is an optimistic approach, and the core belief that tomorrow will be more prosperous.
