My political contributions are an open record, as they should be. But opponents of school choice hide from public view both taxpayer-financed lobby efforts and substantial unreported political spending. These critics should stop hiding. And the media should scrutinize their efforts as they have mine. My resolve is firm and my political activities unambiguous: those who support helping the neediest children escape failing schools will receive my support, and I will vigorously oppose those who don't.

"Already the coordinating propaganda has galvanized the American people against Iran for the supposed threat it poses to us with weapons of mass destruction that are no more present than those Saddam Hussein was alleged to have had."
"What will it take for us to learn from our failures?"
"Common sense tells us the war in Iraq soon will spread to Iran. Fear of imaginary nuclear weapons or an incident involving Iran – whether planned or accidental – will rally the support needed for us to move on Muslim country #3. All the past failures and unintended consequences will be forgotten."

Nationwide, conservative students' tactics over the last year have garnered much attention. Two weeks ago, YCT's Austin chapter held a "straight-pride" rally. Last November, the organization's watch list - for professors they deemed biased - landed Kinghorn and UT journalism professor Bob Jensen on "The O'Reilly Factor." Conservative groups across the country have also been criticized and praised for their "affirmative action bake sales," where a cookie costs $1 for a white male, 45 cents for a black male and 35 cents for a Latino. It was his "three-and-a-half years of indoctrination at UT," that pushed Brendan Steinhauser, a government senior, to start a chapter of Students For Academic Freedom on campus over the Christmas break.The nationwide organization argues that campuses are overwhelmingly liberal and demands that administrations seek a more balanced point of view among faculty. Liberal-turned-conservative activist David Horowitz founded the organization last September, and already 123 campuses have started their own chapters.
