6.) Charlie Kirk
The founder of the world famous Turning Point USA, a grassroots student organization geared towards promoting the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government, Charlie Kirk became one of the leading faces of the conservative/libertarian movement in 2017. Kirk’s Turning Point USA is one of the fastest growing youth organizations in America, and can be found on more than 1,000 campuses across the country. Bringing the message of freedom to mainstream America, Kirk became a regular guest on Fox News in 2017. His work with Turning Point has even gained acknowledgement from the President of the United States, and he is often retweeted by Donald Trump on Twitter.
Kirk went on a Melting Snowflakes & Smashing Socialism tour in 2017, which was met with much hostility from the left. Videos of his speaking engagements continue to gain millions of views on social media, bringing the horrors of socialism and beauties of capitalism to the masses.
Kirk also helped organize Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit in late 2017, inviting dozens of high-profile speakers such as Donald Trump Jr. and Ben Shapiro to speak in West Palm Beach, Florida to an audience of thousands.
