Harvard Republican Club

If you wonder what happened to limited government, yearn for prosperity, support traditional values, or seek endangered freedom, you will find voluntary community (rather than involuntary collectivism) in Harvard’s big-tent Republican Club.

Like most Americans, you are probably aware of Harvard’s well-deserved liberal reputation. From thousands-strong rallies against the liberation of Iraq to a student body that tears down all posters with a conservative message, our college has its problems. Yet a lesser-known aspect of Harvard that deserves attention is the increasingly strong and organized segment of the population that rejects extremist views and seeks answers to questions of public policy in the philosophy of the Right.

The Harvard Republican Club (HRC), a student-run organization at Harvard College, exists to encourage such trends. As the oldest College Republicans chapter in the country, founded in 1888, we are proud of our rich history of Republican advocacy.

“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” – Barry Goldwater

    I am a long ago graduate of the extension school and I currently am a Selectman on Cape Cod. I am looking for students who may wish to intern, volunteer, research for me as I attempt to bring fiscal sanity to my little corner of the world. Unlike the massive reach of state and federal government local government can be changed with the effort and interest of just a few folks. As long as those people have the knowledge based assistance ready to argue against the “professional staff” that has virtually taken the reigns away from the people in local democracy’s. This is especially true in communities that still abide by the “Town Meeting Form of Government” where all legislation is done by individuals collectively.
    In return I would be delighted to invite you into the lair of small town politics and government for research purposes and or provide references or hopefully even this could count toward field credit requirements.
    Please contact the above email if interested.
