About James Padilioni Jr.

James is a senior studying history and music history at West Chester University of PA. He is a Campus Coordinator for Students For Liberty, and is the leader of WCU Students For Liberty. Like his philosophical idol Thomas Jefferson, James has "sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man" - a charge that he will doggedly keep until he breathes his last breath on Earth.
