Editor-in-Chief Zachary Freeman (@freeman_zacharyis a Business Finance major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.  Born in Nashville, Tennessee and raised in nearby Franklin, Zachary Freeman experienced extraordinary liberal bias and academic discrimination at his government-funded college and founded TheCollegeConservative.

After authoring Free Money Please!, a financial guide for high school students and parents preparing for college and searching for private scholarship money, he saw the incredible dysfunction of the education system.

“Colleges need accountability.  They need someone to name names and clean up the mess that the left has created in academia.  That’s what we’re here to do.  The taxpayers should know what their dollars are supporting,” says Freeman, and added that, “the attention that TheCollegeConservative gets drives the left mad.  We’re ready to lead America back to prosperity, starting with re-educating my generation with truth, not agendas.”

    I’m a 50 year old father of 6, one out of college and 2 in. Reading your bios and navigating your site made my night. May God bless your efforts, and please know that you will be in my prayers. Stay strong, and fight the good fight. You will often feel alone, but you aren’t. Thanks for your courage!

  2. Harrison Dean says:

    It’s so inspiring to see other young people involved and making a difference for Christ :-) May God bless your efforts!

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

  3. Just read about this new site and I think it’s great. I will send this site out to many others. Keep up the good work!

  4. SO let me get this straight. The editor in chief leads a conservative group but wrote a little book about how to get more involved with the government welfare program in education?? hahahaha I love how hypocritical conservative republicans can be sometimes (just fyi I’m not a liberal trying to attack the website, in fact I’m a libertarian that subscribed to the email subscription to see what this website has to offer)

  5. A conservative?? …. Editor-in-Chief Zachary Freeman..writes a book titled Free Money Please!
    Can someone tell me where free money fits into a constitutional conserative movement?

  6. Congratulations! I wish you great success on your new endeavor. Were I 30-odd years younger, I’d apply to write with you. As it is, I’ll enjoy and support your work.

  7. Tim & Ellen: You should read before you bash. I have a copy of “Free Money Please”…it’s about how to find & apply for scholarships to get your college education paid for so that you don’t go into debt. Not going into debt is definitely a conservative value…one our current administration knows nothing about.

  8. I definitely agree with you there Kim, on the debt obsession of our current administration. However, does the book not talk about Pell Grants, Federal Aid, Stafford subsidized student loans, etc. ?

  9. Alex E. McKinnon aka Audentas says:

    I thank you all for your concern for our GREAT NATION known as THE UNITED STATES OF AMEIRCA.
    I have started CAP Christian American and Proud in the state of Michigan and hoping to take it national soon.
    Your love for your Country is outstanding and keep up the GREAT WORK.
    I am 62 I believe in Christ, The Constitution and am PROUD!
    Keep up the fight!
    God Bless you

  10. Patrick Hyland says:

    Nice job young patriots! I am a 50 year old husband, father and 22 year military veteran. It does my heart proud that your generation is standing up and fighting the conservative fight for this country!

  11. Vicki Kunetka says:

    Wow! I am amazed to have stumbled on you guys. Finally someone understands that the pull of American liberalism actually begins in institutions of higher learning. What few people understand is how this ever happened in the first place. For example, just WHY is the liberal media so much more liberal than the rest of the entire nation? Why have teachers banded together to create a professional organization (National Education Association) which spouts some of the most liberal policies seen in America?

    The reason largely has to do with “modern day” founders of American education: John Dewey and Horace Mann and a little-known organization in 1905 orginially called the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, which in 1921 changed its name to the League for Industrial Democracy, “The aim of the League was to put into the classroom teachers, into the pulpits preachers and into the trade unions leaders who were collectivists (reflecting the Fabian method) .” (see:

    These men, and others like them, slowly took over schools of higher education (specifically schools of journalism, teaching universities, and library sciences) via tenure, keeping quiet about their liberal affliations and liberal value system until they attained tenure. Then they preached their messages to the student body and slowly managed to stack the deck and take over key positions where they could multiply and influence future leaders and policy shapers. It began with indoctrination of the student body of the nations’ most prestigious schools.

  12. Susan Frost McHugh says:

    Encouraging to see young people who want real hope and change in America – please keep up the conservative movement in colleges and then if possible reach down to high schools. Our children in public and private schools are being indoctrinated into liberalism starting as early as 1st grade.

  13. Thelma Parker says:

    Great job kids!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are not alone. Stay strong and question everything your professors say. My son was a college conservative and went against all his liberal professors and was able to back up everything he believed.

  14. So you guys are taking some heat for using scholarships to pay for your education. Pay no mind to those critics. You gotta do what you can to survive. I am 70 years old. My income consists of a pension from a New England state government, Social Security, and a part-time job at a non profit. I am also a libertarian after being a socialist when I was your age. Yes, call me a hipocrit, but remember I did not save because I was told by authorities that the pension and Social Security were solemn promises that would never be broken. I do not like being a hipocrit, but I have to live.

    You guys know better. Tell your friends and classmates. Keep up the good work. There is no free lunch. Our future can be seen in Europe. Stop the madness.

  15. I saw some people who were calling foul over a book written by one of the contributors above. I agree that government programs are almost never the answer, at least in the current state but I have no problem with the Government investing in the future of a person who is trying to become a productive person in society. It is the one thing I disagree with many of my own conservative friends about. I would have never gone to school without that help. It has helped get a better paying job and therefore I pay a back into the program that helped me. Where government help is wrong is when it prevents people from becoming more productive b/c to do so would mean that they would lose all the freebies they currently get without working towards anything except maybe having more children. That is the programs that need to go away or be phased out.

  16. SSG Mary (retired) says:

    Thank you for what you do. It is refreshing to hear students with conservative values. I retired from the military after 22 years and because I lost my civilian job recently, I finally decided to use the New Post 911 GI Bill and go get a degree in business. I see all kinds of students that don’t seem to have a clue as to what is going on in the world and that this great country is not doing well at all. Europe is on the brink of collapse and we are next. They are socialistic and their entitlement mentality (not that we don’t have it here) won’t let them fix their problems. Imagine retiring in Greece as a hairdresser at the age of 54 (if I remember correctly) because you deal with chemicals! Anyways, I digress, so let’s look towards the 2012 upcoming elections and get out the conservative vote!

  17. I hope none of your “writers” aspire to be professional writers or pundits. These headlines belong on bathroom stalls.

  18. I am very proud of the young people involved with this site. It is refreshing to see young people standing up for the Constitution. Keep up the good work.

  19. Another old guy here, and I have to agree with many of the comments. You guys put out a great product, and it is a delight to see young people engaged in the political process on the side of truth. May the Lord be with you, and you with the Lord.

  20. 40 year old father of 4 who will be starting college in about 7 years. I’m so glad to see that there’s still hope for the coming generations. Keep the faith everyone! Stay strong!

  21. I applaud what you are doing here. Dont let the nay sayers give you too much grief over the Pell grants, etc. I, you, or perhaps your parents have paid in a lot of hard earned tax money to fund those programs. Something that most of the partakers of those programs have NOT done. I agree with the poster saying what they did about welfare as compared to grants. There is a world of difference. And by the way, things like Pell grants SHOULD be a state issue, not something our federal government should be involved in. And taking it a step further, it is a Biblical principle to help those that cant help themselves. Thats why we pay property taxes in our state to send kids to public….ack (sorry, that leave a bad taste in my mouth) school. If the governments would let us keep more of our own money, we wouldnt need Pell grants in the first place. Anyway, God bless you and keep up the good work.
