Also set up at the table was "Pong off Your Debt with Obama," part
On April 16, the Washburn chapter of Young Americans for Liberty held our event for the War on Youth. Since there are many aspects to the War on Youth we thought it would be best to take on what we considered the biggest problem: youth voter apathy.
