Young conservatives are using the President Barack Obama’s many communication, outreach, and organizing strategies to get young voters on the right fired up and involved. The Iowa Dream Project is a solid example of what conservatives in every state should do to, if they want their voices heard. Here are their stated goals:

  • Iowa must get back to #1 in the nation in education results and innovation, reversing a slide toward mediocrity.
  • Iowa must reverse the Brain Drain trend, through both urban and rural growth. Iowa can be the midwest’s premier place to live, work and play.
  • Growing Iowa paychecks must be a pillar of our economic development. That means lower taxes, less government intrusiveness and higher quality jobs with higher pay.
  • Increasing the civic engagement of young Iowans, with an increased voter turnout of 5% by young Iowans.
The Iowa Dream Project has started up a Facebook page dedicated to their activism in the state of Iowa.
