“The last bastion of freedom.” “The greatest nation in the history of mankind.”
Passionate, patriotic speakers at the 2014 Western Conservative Summit used these terms to describe “America at it’s best,” the theme of the 3-day weekend that called for unity, generational harmony, moral courage, and the preservation of America’s founding principles of faith, family, and freedom.

North Korea has invaded South Korea. Indonesian paratroopers have landed on Australian soil. Taiwan has been overrun by China. The Russian-Soviet Empire has been re-created.

The panel of four brought young energy surging into the 2014 WCS as they inspired attendees to move the Millennial Generation forward.
Nice to be back in the Mile-High City. Beautiful! Flyin’ in from ALASKA, over snow-capped hills (think you call mountains)! Stepped off the plane reminded Todd “don’t inhale!”
So, the President was here last week, gettin’ his Rocky Mt. High on.

This blood-connection between the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence has disappeared from the public eye over the years, but British politician and author Daniel Hannan believes that the underlying link between the two is undeniable and unbreakable.
Saturday night marks the midpoint of the 2014 Western Conservative Summit, and attendees from all backgrounds and generations react to speakers throughout the weekend so far:
“Do not allow them to define you as something you’re not.”
Radio host, author, and political commentator Tammy Bruce speaks defiantly to the WCS attendees at the afternoon panel on race in America.
